1

Regardless of whether your device runs on iOS or Android, you can always transfer your old clash of clans village to a new device.

All you need to do is follow some simple steps given below.

iOS

You are required to attach your old village to a Game Center account and load it on the new device.
1. Launch Game Center on the old device and create a new account or you can login with your existing username and password, if any.
2. Launch the game while logged in. Your village is attached to the Game Center account if the “Welcome back, _yourusername_” message is displayed at the top of the screen.
3. On the new device, launch Game Center and login using the same username and password as the old device.
4. Launch the game while you are logged in. It will display a confirmation message to load the saved game and delete the new village.
5. Tap “Okay” and your old village will be loaded on the new device.

Android

You are required to attach your old village to a Google+ account and load it on the new device.
1. Launch Google+ on the old device and create a new account or you can login with your existing username and password.
2. Launch the game while logged in and open the in-game Settings.
3. Select “Sign in with Google” and choose the Google+ account that you want to connect to your village. Tap “Okay”.
4. Your village is attached to the Google+ account if the “Welcome back, _yourusername_” message is displayed at the top of the screen.
5. On the new device, launch Google+ and login using the same username and password as the old device.
6. Launch the game while you are logged in and follow the tutorial till you reach the in-game Settings.
7. Tap on “Google+ Sign-In” and tap on “Okay” in the next message. Your old village will be loaded on the new device.

Cross-Platform Transfer

You can also make a cross-platform transfer of your clash of clans village from an iOS device to an Android device as well as the vice versa.

First of all, you need to have access to both the Android and the iOS devices. The process is done using a transfer code, but the code will not be generated if you have purchased gems for your new Android account or if it has crossed Town Hall level 4. In such a scenario, you must start another village once you reinstall the app and then connect it to another Google+ account.

Your iOS account is required to be connected to the Game Center whereas the Android account is required to be connected to Google+.

1. On iOS, login into Game Center and verify the Game Center connection by launching the game from there. On Android, launch Clash of Clans and in the in-game settings, tap on “Google+ sign in” to connect your village to Google+.
2. Open the in-game settings window of the game on both the devices.
3. Tap on “Link a device”.
4. Follow the simple on-screen instructions and your village will be transferred to the new device.

So, its pretty easy to enjoy your favourite Clash of Clans on your new device beginning right from where you left the game on the old one.
