As per the latest news, Apple is known to develop a tool that will allow users to get shifted to Android devices from iOs products. This can because of maximum competition in Europe.
Last year, Apple released its Move to iOs app which can be used by Android owners to transfer their contacts, messages, photos and calendars from Android to iOs in case they start using iPhone.
And opposite to this; Apple is now developing a new app known as Telegraph that allows users to transfer from iOs to Android. This app will be used by those iPhone users who can shift their data to an Android device.
Generally, Apple doesn’t have those customers who quickly wish to migrate from iOs to Android. But it is believed that the new app can be the result of pressure from European telecom companies.
These are concerned with maximum number of users who wish to switch to Android. Some believe that Apple completely dominates a huge part of mobile market. Apple makes it difficult to shift from iOs.
Hence, this reduces competition thus making it harder for Android developers. This seems that Apple has agreed to create a tool to make it easier to switch operating systems easier.
It is not clear whether there are many complaints from network operators. There’s no word yet on when the new app is to be released to the public. Many times Apple has faced problems in Europe regarding allegations of anti competitive business practices.
The company was examined by European commission which conspire the record companies to try ad supported free to listen music streaming services like Spotify thus offering an advantage to the paid service.
There are more European services who had found no proof of illegal activities and however it continues to monitor the market.
So, till the time this app gets developed completely, let’s take look at some of the ways through which one can easily make a move to Android from iOs. Till now, there’s no such direct option.
So, here are the alternate ways:
- Make sure that the files get transferred like as those in contacts and calendars.
Android uses Google account for contacts and calendars. Hence, if you want to transfer those; your Google account must be synchronized with iPhone.
For this: Settings > Mail, Contacts, Calendars > Add account. Now add your Google ID. This synchronization can be done manually by plugging your phone into computer.
Then open iTunes and then find your next device. Open the Info tab and then tick the box next to Sync Contacts with> Google Contacts.
Now as soon as you enter the Google ID, iphone will get synchronized and all the contacts and calendars will be added to Google’s Cloud.
- For photos, download the Google photos app and then sign in using Google account. After getting logged in; select “Back up & Sync” and then continue. Once the photos are completely synchronized these can be viewed from your Google account on the Android device.
- For music, make sure that your iPhone is already synchronized with iTunes library then install the Google Play Music Manager. You can get up to 50,000 songs from iTunes library.
- With the help of Google account, one can easily access and listen to all the uploaded songs. Make sure that your songs are stored in cloud.
Hence, in this way one can easily switch from iOs to Android. Days are very near when there will be an app for the same. So, if you use that you can easily get transferred from iOs to Android.
