Apple tool allows you to copy the photos and videos from iCloud to Google Photos. It is available in selected countries. Lets users transfer all their photos and videos from Apple’s iCloud to Google Cloud. This tool easily takes all the pictures and videos with them without a complex procedure.
The transfer of content can take between three to seven days to complete. Apple said that “We use this time to verify that the request was made by you, and to make the transfer.” The transfer does not delete the iCloud data but copies it on Google Photos. Apple informed the users that some of the data stored in their iCloud accounts include file formats available they transfer their media library to Google Photos.
Users face some small issues if they have very large albums. Apple iCloud supports large albums but Google Photos have the limit per album at 20,000 pictures. Hence, if you have more than 20,000 pictures in a single album, the surplus pictures will still be transferred but will not be a part of that particular album.
New Apple to Google transfer tool is available only in select countries include the US, Canada, the European Union, the UK, Norway, Switzerland, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Australia, and New Zealand.
