To get your Safari bookmarks into Chrome on your new phone, you’ll need to download the iCloud app for Windows. Once it’s all set up and you’re signed in, click the Options button next to Boomarks and select Chrome. Press Apply, and select Merge in the pop-up dialogue box. (If prompted, allow Chrome to install the iCloud Bookmarks extension.) Once it’s done, all of your Safari bookmarks will appear in Chrome’s bookmark’s tab on your Android phone (and everywhere else).
You can do that right in Chrome on a Mac. Launch Chrome, open the menu at the top right, and click Bookmarks. Select Import bookmarks and settings, choose Safari, and press import.
And that should be it. Other than a stray document or file that you can just toss in your Google Drive, your new phone will be all ready to go. And we don’t think you’ll miss it all.
