Apple’s 4.7 and 5.5-inch iPhones are the company finally admitting that some people like bigger phones. Most of those people currently use Android devices, a demographic Apple hopes to capture a slice of courtesy of the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus. How confident are they in achieving this? Confident enough that they have gone ahead and posted a guide that will help Android users during the transition between operating systems.

The guide covers the gamut, from transferring accounts, contacts, and calendars to photos, music, documents, and more. They even touch on finding the apps you used on your old phone, noting “you’ll probably find [them] on the App Store.”

It’s certainly not the most in-depth guide, and Apple doesn’t touch on some of the finer points that come along with moving from Android to iOS (how about keeping your Google ecosystem intact?), but Apple is doing their best to prepare for what they hope is a mass Android exodus.

For those not swept up in iPhone-mania, the new devices (the first time Apple will launch two new iPhones of different size at the same time) drop this Friday, September 19th. The iPhone 6 and 6 Plus have already been doing solid numbers as part of an ongoing pre-sale, and record numbers are once again expected to show up for the launch. We’re sure Samsung would rather folks in search of a new phablet hold off a fews weeks for the upcoming Galaxy Note 4. That handset will launch in October.
