Apple to make it easier to move to Android

apple-android It has been reported that Apple are working on a thing that will make it easier for you to move from Apple to Android. Of course, this isn't a gesture of goodwill, and neither are Apple doing it because they'll cockily assume that no-one would ever want to do such a thing, but rather, it comes from pressure from European telecom operators.

So, in the future, it should be pretty easy to migrate yourself from iOS to Android.

You may know about the Move app, which Apple released last year, which let Android users easily transfer their data to iPhone. Now, it looks like they're opening the channel the other way too.

Now, with Apple having so many people tied up in their ecosystem, it is interesting to see Apple giving users an easy way out. That said, Apple haven't released this app yet, and it might not even see the light of day.

Either way, telecom companies would like to see more movement between the two systems, as it will increase their bargaining power with Google and Apple. We also don't know how many iPhone users actually want this, but while Apple are getting it in the neck from the people who help them to sell phones, they'll have to keep working on it.

More news of release dates and the like, when it happens.

If you want to migrate from iPhone to Android, and can't wait for Apple to get this service out, then there's a good guide on how you can do it yourself, here.
