Wanna switch to iOS! Not to worry Apply has it for you. The latest Android App ‘Move to iOS’ wirelessly transfers data from Android devices to iPhones and iPads. Announced as part of the iOS 9 preview, the app, to be released this year, and will be available in both the Play Store and App Store.
What will ‘Move to iOS’ Do
Move to iOS will help people transfer their data from an Android device to an iOS device. Contacts, message history, camera photos and videos, web bookmarks, mail accounts, calendars, wallpaper, and DRM-free songs and books can be transferred to an iOS device using this app.
Also the Move to iOS app will help Android users build their app library too. It will suggest that you download free apps (that you use on Android) via the App Store and if it finds paid apps on your Google account, it will add those to your iOS App Store wish list. The whole transfer process is wireless, which adds another layer of convenience. Once the transfer is complete the app even suggests that you recycle the Android device at any Apple Store. Only you have to just download the Move to iOS app to wirelessly switch from your Android device to your new iOS device
Also there is another app coming up later this year and will be Apple’s new music streaming service, Apple Music, competing with Google’s music streaming service, Google Play Music, and other services such as Spotify.
The Apple Music, is a music streaming service, coming to Android. While previously Apple apps and services have been available on Windows and the Web, this is the first time that the company is making an Android app for a major service. Apple is making this app to tap a large audience outside its own ecosystem and it appears to be an important focus area for the company’s music apps such as iTunes and Apple Music.
There is a good chance that the Apple Music Android app will look and feel like an iOS app, just as iTunes for Windows looks like a Mac app. Apple could use this opportunity to give Android users a taste of iOS UI, just like Google tries to provide its Material Design experience on iOS. Ultimately, Apple would want Android users to switch to iOS as its hardware is its big money spinner.
Such developments show that Apple is now too on the way gathering audience outside its ecosystem. It’s unlikely that apps such as i Cloud Drive will make it to Android but the Apple Store app is one that could. That app helps people buy products directly from Apple and having it on Android is likely to help the company get more people to buy Apple products. Unlike Microsoft, Apple’s goal isn’t to build beautiful apps for other platforms so that people use its services. It appears as though it wants to build apps on Android to encourage people to switch to Apple products.
