Apple releases ‘Move to iOS’ App for Android Users

Posted in Mobile/Tablet, and Technology

A new Android app called “Move to iOS,” which is available for download now.

Users are able to install the app on their Android phone, and the app will back up all of the user’s important data, including contacts, messages, photos, videos, Internet browser bookmarks and so on. The data can then be downloaded onto the user’s new iPhone.

“Everything about iOS is designed to be easy. That includes switching to it,” says Apple on the Google Play page for Move to iOS. “With just a few steps, you can migrate your content automatically and securely from your Android device with the Move to iOS app. No need to save your stuff elsewhere before switching from Android.”

Move to iOS creates a private Wi-Fi network to transfer your contacts, calendars, email accounts, messages and camera roll.

All you need to do is enter a security code displayed on your iPhone and select what you want to move to initiate the process.

The app represents a pretty aggressive move for Apple in trying to convince Android users to switch over. One of the biggest headaches associated with switching phones is having to transfer data, and the new app makes it pretty easy to do so.

Of course, Google also offers tools for iOS users to switch to Android, however, these tools are not as easy and comprehensive as Apple’s offering.
