Guide to Transfer Files from Android to iPhone
"Recently I bought a new iPhone 6 Plus, and my father asked me to give my old Motorola phone to him rather than buying a new one. Before that, I need to get the files out of my Motorola and sync directly to the new iPhone because some of them are really important. But I don't have a clue about how to do that.
