change to or change into is better

November 2021

Reported speech: statements.

The tense of the introducing verb (ask, say, tell) changes when the sentence is reported: simple present --> simple past; present continuous --> past continuous.....

I saw these written words in a textbook and would like to use spoken words to say this part: simple present -> simple past

Should I say,

"change the simple present to the simple past"

or

"change the simple present into the simple past"?

Thank you!!!
