    OnePlus Switch Migrate your data to the OnePlus 6.jpg

    Hey everyone,

    Remember OnePlus Switch, our migration app? Don’t forget to use the app when you get your new OnePlus 6! You can bring all your treasured memories such as your photos, messages, videos, contacts and more to your brand-new OnePlus 6.

    Where can I find OnePlus Switch?
    • On your new OnePlus 6, you can find OnePlus Switch under Settings -> advanced (we suggest that you upgrade your phone to the latest OTA available ). If you still cannot find it, please download the app from Play Store.
    • On your old phone, download OnePlus Switch from Google Play Store.
    How do I use it?
    • On your new OnePlus 6, go to settings -> Advanced -> OnePlus Switch -> choose "I'm a new phone”, you will find a QR code after a few clicks.

    • Turn on the OnePlus Switch APP on your old phone and scan the QR code shown on the new phone.
    After your devices get connected, you can select the data you want to migrate and click on "Start". We suggest keeping OnePlus Switch open during the whole process for data integrity.

    Sending data to an old phone: Any Android smartphone(Android 6.0 and above) can be the sending device.

    Receiving data for a New phone:Only OnePlus smartphones can be the receiving device.

    Yeah, as simple as above, Try using OnePlus Switch to migrate your data, and enjoy your OnePlus 6!!

    Note:
    • In order to ensure data integrity during the transfer process, do not quit the app or enter the lock screen while moving data.
    • If you didn't transfer all your data the first time, don't worry, OnePlus Switch stores the status of data transfer, and you can continue to migrate the rest of the data later on.
    • Data migration via OnePlus Switch includes data transfer and application installation, which is time-consuming, so please be patient during the process.
    • OnePlus Switch has been tested on several Android devices from major OEM's, there could still be compatibility issues while transferring data from certain devices.
    If you have any questions, contact us at Apps_switch@oneplus.com

    Never Settle.

    Does it copy just the apk and settings like before or make a full copy of the old device, similar to titanium backup?

    Can you pls explain this point more, only Non-OnePlus can be a sending device? So if one wants to use switch app to transfer from OP5 to OP6, it won't work?

    Edit : OP already corrected the typo error made in first post.

    This seems a bit confusing
    Though this one clears the confusion.

    Good to see the developments in OnePlus Switch application

    ^
    To add a bit, if it's a device on an older OS, it may not copy all passwords and everything, could be due to restructuring of how things work.
