Smart Switch

What is Smart Switch?

Samsung’s Smart Switch is an app which lets you transfer photos, contacts, messages, files and important data to a new Samsung device – even if you were using a non-Samsung device previously, such as an iPhone.

It transfers all your data, including your device settings, so that you can pick up your new device and carry on right where you left off.

You can transfer data from both Android and iOS devices over Wi-Fi, with a USB cable or with a PC or Mac.

Can I use Smart Switch to transfer data between phones and tablets?

Yes - Smart Switch can be used to transfer between tablets, between smartphones, and between a tablet and a smartphone. However, it can’t be used to transfer data between two non-Samsung devices.

Which Samsung devices use Smart Switch?

All newer Samsung devices, including the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra and the Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra, use Smart Switch. You’ll need to check if the Android or iOS platform on your device is compatible before you use Smart Switch. Check your device’s requirements to see if you can use Smart Switch.
