Move to iOS is Apple's 'second' Android app
And while Apple Music for Android might make you think that Apple has suddenly started to have warm feelings towards Google's mobile platform, you should be quick to reconsider that, as it appears that Apple's gearing up to release another Android app, called Move to iOS...
Apple already had useful web guides, but it's now automating the process of transition from Android to iOSWell, as its name suggests, the Move to iOS app will be designed to let you transition from Android to iOS in an easy and convenient manner. It's just what you'd expect from such an app, although we can expect that it's going to be every bit as polished and complete as other Apple offerings. Basically, Move to iOS will let you wirelessly switch from your old Android phone (preferably an HTC one, if you ask Apple) to your new iPhone, securely moving all of your "contacts, message history, camera photos and videos, web bookmarks, mail accounts, calendars, wallpaper, and DRM-free songs and books." Additionally, the service will try to help you rebuild your app library by automatically suggesting that you download all the free apps you had on your Android device, while putting the paid titles in your App Store wish list.
It all sounds reasonable and totally Apple-ish. After all, the company already had online guides detailing some of the ways by which you could approach moving from Android to iOS, but now it has taken things to the next level, by letting users automate the process with this new 'Move to iOS' Android app, which, we guess, is going to arrive in the Play Store shortly.
Meanwhile, if you're looking for ways to make the transition, these are the guides that Apple offers.
