The video explains the process: insert your active SIM card into your brand new Pixel, turn the device on and make a couple of taps. Connect the Pixel to your old phone (and in an inspired bit of casting, an Apple iPhone is portrayed by a banana) and the Pixel does the hard work. “As long as you know how to plug in a cord, you can’t mess this up,” Google says. Your contacts, settings, and photos will transfer over by magic.
Now comes your first karate lesson. Google shared the full URL of the karate video it used just in case you really want to follow in the footsteps of the most famous of karate teachers, Mr. Miyagi. Turning back to the Pixel, once the data is transferred, you need to come up with a PIN number (Google advises that you don’t use 1234), and add your fingerprint. Besides moving over your data, your wallpaper will be transferred as well.
