Hi

I've been using iPhones since they came out. DC both have very old iPads and we use family sharing and FaceTime/iMessage a fair bit.

I'm seriously considering swapping to android next month when I upgrade. I was going to wait until September for the iPhone 7 ( mine is the 6) but I'm so fed up with storage problems and having to constantly delete stuff. iCloud is rubbish and I just fancy a change.

If I change I will by the dc new tablets at Xmas as they have already asked, theirs are v slow now and again issues with storage.

If I change over is there similar family sharing/ parental controls? Is there a similar thing to FaceTime? Would viber do the trick?
Can I transfer all my Apple Music and apps?

I'm really undecided! Thanks if you got this far!!

You can teaser the music but not the apps. The apps you will have to buy again if they available on android.

Thought as much with the apps.
Is it easy to transfer the music?

You can move your iTunes music into your Google Music account in the cloud and then you'll be able to access it anywhere with any Android device or on the Web. You'll need to sign into Google Music, download the Music Manager, and install it.

That sounds complicated! Do I need to do that on a laptop or can I do it on a phone?
Thankyou

You can do it on any Android device, tablet or phone. Google Music will run on Mac, Linux, Windows PC as well.

If you want to move iCloud stuff to Android you can use Google Drive App on iOS t copy data from iCloud to Google Drive.
