Data can be transferred from Android smartphones with Android 6.0 or higher, and iPhones with iOS 9.0 or higher.

Wired or wireless, data transfer couldn't be simpler

With Xperia Transfer 2, you can transfer data using a cable connection or by pairing your devices wirelessly—the choice is yours.

Wired data transfer 

Follow these simple steps to transfer data using a wired connection between your devices.

Step 1 - Select device

Select your previous device type—Xperia/Android or iPhone—and choose “Cable” as your transfer method. To transfer from an Android device, you’ll need to install Xperia Transfer 2 from Google Play on both devices. To transfer from an iPhone, there’s no need to download Xperia Transfer 2 on your iPhone—just install it on your new Xperia.

Step 2 - Connect via USB cable

Connect your previous phone to your new Xperia using the appropriate USB cable. The app will tell you which type of USB cable you need or if an adapter is required.

Step 3 - Start transfer

Now simply select the types of data you want to carry over from your previous phone—music, contacts, photos, etc.—and start your transfer.

Wireless data transfer

Want to transfer data wirelessly from your old device to your new Xperia? Here’s how it’s done.

Step 1 - Select device

Select your previous device type and transfer method—“Wireless” for Xperia/Android smartphones or “iCloud” for iPhones. To transfer from an Android device, you’ll need to install Xperia Transfer 2 from Google Play on both devices. To transfer from an iPhone, there’s no need to download Xperia Transfer 2 on your iPhone—just install it on your new Xperia.

Step 2 - Prepare for transfer
