    Yes you can use Smart Switch by Samsung. It'll transfer everything. Welcome to the family! I hope you can convince others around you to make the switch too.

    Moved from Intros to the S7 edge forum, which I thought would be more helpful for the OP.

    I go back and forth between Apple and Android. I have the 7Edge now and it is a far superior phone to the Iphone 6S plus. You will really enjoy the 7.

    I also was back and forth between Apple and Android but i think i finally found my happy place. The phone is great, fits nicely in the hands and the camera is just great. Get samsung smart switch on your apple and it should transfer everything except apps that are not compatible from Apple store to Play store. Enjoy.

    My 16 yo son switched from the iPhone to the S7 last week and says he is glad that he did. After hearing him talk about how much he liked it my wife may be switching as well.

    I can also confirm the transfer of data from iPhone to S7 using SmartSwitch was as easy and painless for his phone as it was for me going from the S5 to the S7 edge.

    Wow I think you just did a great upgrade. Try the app MobileTrans, to transfer all your iphone data to any OS (in case that you still need it). Maybe your first days using android where difficult, because all of the changes you see, but after that, you'll realize that you made the right decision, because you have most of the apps for free and also have a lot more variety. I hope that you enjoy your new S7, you can tell me later if it's a lot better than an iphone. Greetings!

    The s7 comes with the adapter needed for the Smart Switch, so that may be the best route.

    Smart switch is a total disaster for macs. It doesn't work at all with my 2011 imac. Luckily for contacts having everything connected to google works. iSyncr works for transferring music. I really enjoy the S7 Edge. But if all you do is use apps, text and play video and music, there really is not much difference. Sure, you can put widgets on your phone but if you look at many screen shot photos of the S7 edge, they look like an iPhone.

    I jump between iOS and Android regularly. But switched to the S7 Edge and so far this phone is superb. Samsung have done an amazing job.

    It's all about customization. You can make it "yours" and like no one elses. With the iPhone, you can change the background and put apps in folders, that's about it.

    Wondering about doing the same jump. Any idea when android will support fingerprint unlocking in 3dt party apps? For example at the moment my bank app accepts my fingerprint as a security password which is so useful. That is on iOS.
    Another thing got me worried was I have heard a lot of users complaining sd card problems with the s7 edge.

    Absolutely no problems with the SD card. If you buy a quality card like a Samsung Pro, etc, they work perfectly.

    With Marshmallow you can use fingerprint for apps that have support, as an example my password keeper allows for fingerprint, website logins allow for it so I see no reason other than developer support being any issue for your bank
