It doesn't matter whether you have an iPhone or the latest Android smartphone, dr.fone - Switch makes it super easy for users to switch data in between devices. To know more about why everyone is calling it the one-stop solution for transferring information from one device to the other, just go through some of its features as we discuss them next.
Compatible with Both Mac OS and Windows 10
The dr.fone - Switch software can be downloaded and installed on both Apple Macs and Windows 10 PCs because it works with both operating systems flawlessly, making it easier for users to use them on any device of their choosing.
Works on both Android and iOS Devices
All versions of Android and up to iOS 12 is supported. dr.fone - Switch doesn't just work on Android smartphones and iPhones, but the transfer app works on Android tablets and iPads too.
Supports a Wide Range of Manufacturers
Aside from the obvious Apple and Google devices, almost any device running on Android OS from manufacturers like Sony, HTC, Samsung, LG, Motorola, Huawei, Oppo and ZTE work without a hitch with dr.fone - Switch. In fact, this isn't even the complete list of manufacturers because if you have a smart device that runs on some version of the iOS or Android OS, dr.fone - Switch will probably be compatible with it.
Safety and Reliability
Not even dr.fone gets to keep your data as you are the only one in control of it. The switching software only reads and transfers the data from one device to the other, while nothing is stored on the cloud. It also guarantees zero data loss as overwriting is not even an option until you actually want to delete anything while transferring the data.
You Can Transfer Data from an iOS Device to an Android Device Without a Computer
If you don't have access to a Mac or a PC right now, dr.fone - Switch also has an Android Switch application that you can install on your Android device to complete the transfer. It supports the transfer in the two following ways.
1. You can log in to your iCloud account from the Android device with the help of the app, and download everything from contacts to media onto the smartphone/tablet.
2. You will need an iOS-to-Android adapter for this one and once you use it to connect the two devices, the application can then be used to switch data from the iOS device to the Android device.

With a PC/Mac You Can Switch Across All Devices
As long as you have access to preferably a PC and alternately a Mac, you can expect the dr.fone - Switch to help you do the following transfers in just one-click and in between 5 - 30 minutes max (the larger the transfer, the closer it will be to the 30-minute mark)
· Android to Android
· Android to iOS
· iOS to Android (iPhone to Android transfer)
· iOS to iOS
Almost All Major File Types are Supported
The list will vary a bit, depending on the OS of the two phones you are transferring data in between. For example, when you are transferring from Android to iOS, apps and voicemails won't be transferred alongside a few other file types, but the list of compatible files are much larger when the user is transferring from an iOS device to an Android device, or if it's a simple iOS to iOS transfer. The dr.fone website has a easy to follow, quick guide on how to transfer photos from iPhone to iPhone with the software's user interface.
Some of the common file types that you can expect dr.fone - Switch to successfully transfer across all devices include photos, videos, messages, contacts, call history, music, bookmarks, calendar data and voice memos.
dr.fone also has quite a wide and extensive collection of software suite that can handle any need that a smartphone might have, ranging from backup & recovery, to restoration of deleted files and securing your phone against external threats.
Even at the risk of being ostracized by the huge list of fans who love their Nintendo Switch, I must say that the Switch Lite is a big letdown. Before you reach for your pitchforks, at least go through what I have to say. At the end of reading this article, some of you might actually agree with me.
Why the Lite Version Makes NO Sense
The Switch is already powered by hardware that's aging for even mobile gaming, since the current gen SD 855, Kirin 980 and the Exynos 9820 found inside the flagship handsets are multiple times more powerful than the Tegra X1 chip powering the Switch. As far as fully fledged consoles such as the Xbox One X or PS4 Pro are concerned, the comparison is not even fair.
However, all of that that wasn't a problem because of Nintendo's exclusive and an absolutely fascinating game collection. Aside from that, I personally, always considered the Switch to be a handheld gaming console, rather than something you would connect to the big screen.
Unfortunately, there comes a time, when the developers have to downgrade everything within a game, just to make it run on outdated hardware. Whether that time has come for the Switch or not, is a debatable affair, but with the release of a new iteration, one would think that Nintendo would upgrade the hardware.
Instead of taking that logical and happily anticipated step, Nintendo has downgraded everything about the external hardware and has even put in the same, old and outdated chip to power it all.
The Pros and Cons List
If you have any doubts about my conclusion, just check the pros and cons list, then verify it on the web.
· It's about $100 cheaper (officially)
· Slightly better battery life
· Smaller screen size (5.5")
· Negligible weight difference, unless a .27lbs/.12kg difference matters to you!
· The Switch Lite isn't compatible with all games
· You can't use a dock to connect it to the TV
· The controllers are non-detachable and therefore, harder to replace or repair, if not impossible
· No IR motion camera, HD Rumble or even the kickstand!
· Uses the same outdated chip, slow USB-C charger and port, 720p resolution LCD and 32GB internal storage with micro-SD slot
· Bluetooth connectivity is also not added to the "new" console
The question is, are you willing to sacrifice so much to save $100? Especially when discounted options are often there for the full sized console, which will easily shave off at least $25 from the original price.
Stay away from the Nintendo Switch Lite if you already have a Switch and if you don't have one yet, just spend the extra $70 - $90 and get the original! The Switch Lite is cash grab and we expect better from Nintendo.
