Dumping Your iPhone for a New Sony Xperia Z? Here's How You Seamlessly Transfer Your Data
With the Xperia Z release for most major U.S. carriers expected sometime very shortly, many are both excited and curious at Sony's new flagship device. Much of the hype surrounding the new smartphone has stemmed from several ads that Sony has released, touting their waterproof phone to be as innovative as their Trinitron, PlayStation, and Walkman brands.
Your worries about dropping your phone in a tiny fishbowl are finally over.
So, if you're someone that's interested in purchasing the Xperia Z and you currently have an iPhone, data transfer might be something you're worried about. I mean, how easy is it to go from iPhone to Android anyway?
Well, Sony has just released their Xperia Transfer software to combat that problem, making it super simple to move all of your media and contacts from your iPhone to a new Xperia.
The Transfer Wizard, which is available for PC (Sony's PC Companion) and Mac (Sony Bridge) can sync your two devices, by first backing up your content in iTunes and then opening Xperia Transfer.
The information that you can transfer includes your contacts, messages, calendar entries, notes, bookmarks, music, pictures, and more. Check out the simple process in the video below.
