If you are upgrading to an iPhone 7 or later, the migration process is actually pretty painless thanks to iCloud.
Before starting up your new iPhone, check your old one to ensure there is a recent iCloud backup. To perform so, go to Setting > iCloud> Backup. If the backup is not updated enough, you can tap “Back-Up now”.
Now you can start the setup process on your new iPhone. After you enter your iCloud account detail, you will be prompted to either restore from a setup or backup the phone as new. Pick to restore from a backup, and ensure you pick the best backup from your old phone. Now your new device will be populated with all the content from your old one.
On most iPhones you will be asked from the first time you turn the phone on if you want to transfer data from your current iOS device, you will then be aksed to bring the old and new devices next to each other and then get asked to follow the on screen instructions.

How to transfer from Android to Android
Big Android models generally have custom migration tools in their phones. For example, Samsung provides its Smart Switch app, while Motorola has its own Migrate tool.
Anyway, if you skipped the backup process when setting up your Phone, you can accomplish the same thing by using Google Drive to back up your data, apps, contacts, and whatever else you need. You can download backups by clicking on Settings> Backup & Restore, and following the orders.
If you are offered any backups, we advise checking to ensure that your old phone has been backing up any synching application data to Google’s cloud.
You can verify by going to settings> personal> backup & restore. Ensure “Backup my data” is enabled. As for application synching, go to setting> Data usage, tap on the 3 dot menu symbol at the top right of the display, and ensure “Auto-sync” data is turned on.
Once you have a backup, pick it on your new phone and you will be offered a list of the applications on your old phone. Then you can pick whether you want to restore them to your new phone. Some applications might emerge if they do not support app syncing, but you can just re-download them from the Play store.
