How to transfer data from phone to phone

a. Connect two devices

Launch the ApowerTrans app on two phones, tap the Dock-like icon at the bottom. After that, you will see that inbuilt radar will seek out the destination phone nearby. Select profile and your devices should be automatically connected.


You may also build the connection between two phones via the QR code. For one phone, simply tap the “Menu” icon and click on the QR code icon. For the other phone, also tap the “Menu” icon and click on “Scan” to aim at the QR code for connection between two phones.

Without network, you can still use this powerful tool. If there is at least one Android device, enter into “Radar”, then press the question mark on the top right corner where some instructions are displayed. Next, open “Hotspot” below and connect the other device to the WiFi named Apowersoft. For two iOS devices supporting AirDrop, just turn on the Wi-Fi. Afterwards, you will find the other device in Radar. Click it to connect.

Solutions to not detect and link your target phone

After following the steps above, if one phone fails to detect and connect the other phone, please be sure that all your details are correct.

  1. Please make sure both devices’ wireless internet function is working properly and can scan the Wi-Fi signal.
  2. Please make sure you have two devices connected in the same Wi-Fi network.

If the connection still fails, please restart your ApowerTrans app and try it again.

Factors that may affect the transfer speed
