    Hey guys. I gotta give my s8 back to verizon tomorrow. Im waiting on my iphone x to get here will be probably a month. I borrowed a little se til then. Is there anyway i can put all of my stuff over to a laptop then put on the iPhone after? Using maybe iTunes?

    Download Move to iOS on the Android device, and restore it on your SE. Once you get your X, restore using your SE backup.

    The problem you have is that there's no way to take your content directly from an Android backup and restore it to an iPhone.

    It doesn't work that way. The best solution is what you've just been offered unfortunately.

    Back up the SE to iCloud and restore the X from that iCloud backup. Problem solved!
