Apple Offers Easy Way to Move iCloud Photos to Google Photos

Apple offers easy way to move icloud photos to google

Apple has quietly launched a device that lets you automatically transfer all photos and videos stored on your iCloud account to Google Photos.

This would be especially useful if you decide to ditch your Apple-made smartphone for an Android option and need to transfer your media to your new device.

Some things to keep in mind according to Apple:

– Transfer of material takes between three days and one week to complete. “We use this time to verify that it was requested by you, and to make the transfer,” said the tech giant.

– Some data and formats are available in iCloud photos – such as smart albums, live photos, or some RAW files – may not be available when you transfer your content. More information about this is available on Apple’s website.

– Transferring photos and videos from iCloud Photos does not delete or change the content you store with Apple, but instead sends a copy to Google Photos.

– Google Photos also has a limit of 20,000 photos per album. If you move an album with more than 20,000 photos, additional photos are still transferred, but not added to the album.

– The new tool is initially available to customers in the US, Canada, European Union, UK, Norway, Switzerland, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Australia and New Zealand.

How to transfer your photos and videos:

First, ensure the following:
– You are using iCloud Photos to store photos and videos with Apple.
– Your Apple ID uses two-factor authentication.
– You have a Google Account for Google Photos.
– Sufficient storage is available to complete the transfer to your Google account.

Next, you need to initiate a request to transfer your iCloud photo content. For doing this:
– Sign in with your Apple ID at privacy.apple.com.
– Select “Transfer a copy of your data”.
– Follow the prompts to fulfill your request.

You will be asked to sign in to your Google account to initiate the transfer. After that, you will receive an email notification about your transfer request and another email when the transfer is over. You can check the status of your request through this page on Apple’s website.
