"Hello! I'm hoping someone can help. My mom moved from Android (Samsung Galaxy S10+) to her iPhone 13. We have had continuous trouble transferring data. It has been two days since starting the transfer and getting error messages like, 'transfer interrupted'. Or, most recently, the transfer got stuck on 1 minute for literal hours. We are at a loss. Should I call Apple Support? Or am I doing something wrong?"
