Once you’ve completed these steps, it will be time to set up your new iPhone with Apple ID login details. During this step in the setup process, thee will be a prompt for Quick Start which will allow you to restore all of the apps and app data from the backup that you made earlier.

And just like that, in only a few short steps you’ll have successfully transferred all of your important data from your old Android device over to your new iPhone! It really is as easy as that – so don’t let transferring data after setup put you off making the switch!
