Over the past few months, Apple has been putting in lots of effort in moving more android users to the iOS platform basically by introducing new features and services.
When the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s plus was unveiled, Apple announced a service that allows US citizens trade in their old devices for a new one. While that sounds like a good bargain, Apple has unveiled an App which reportedly helps users move from android OS to iOS.
Basically, what the app does is, it transfers android data over a private WiFi network directly to an iPhone or iPad. A unique code is provided during the process to establish a secure link between the android device and the iOS device.
Furthermore, the app will take note of the apps the user has on the android device and automatically add them to the user’s iTunes wish list. Not like the ‘move to iOS’ app moves the apps nor music files on the android device. More so, the app data are not moved in the process. Hence, if going through the process, you will need to download the apps already saved on the iTunes wishlist on iOS platform.
According to Apple;
No need to save your stuff elsewhere before switching from Android. The Move to iOS app securely transfers all kinds of content for you: Contacts, Message history, Camera photos and videos, Web bookmarks, Mail accounts, Calendars.
The app was originally unveiled in June 2015 during the WWDC event. If you need more information in regards the app, be free to using the Apple’s Move to iOS help page.
The app is available on Google’s play store and it is compatible with every android device running android 4.0 and above.
