Well, it has always been a tedious task and sometimes excruciating activity to transfer from one platform to another, in this case, from Android to iOS (iOS 11). However, with the advancement in the technological field, it is now an easy task to migrate from Android to iOS in a few simple steps. Migrating from one operating system to another could be of different reasons. Most importantly are due to the security, reliability, apps, and support. Although Android is leading with the market share, it still is competing with Apple in terms of safety and reliable nature of the operating system. The reason is that Android is an open source platform, which allows easy customization by the developers of various applications. Apple, on the other hand, uses closed loop structure, which is impossible to customize. In this regard, professionals often choose Apple because of the security it offers. Nonetheless, Android also provides enhanced protection with the use of anti-virus or anti-malware programs that gain access to the kernel, making a device free from malicious programs. Here we will present the best way to do it.
