Google launches ‘Switch to Android’ app

Tech giant Google recently released an app that allows iOS users to migrate their data to an Android phone.

Switch to Android app

“Switch to Android” is similar to Apple’s “Move to iOS” except that the Cupertino-based company’s app was released six years earlier in 2015. The app aims to make the transition from an iPhone to an Android smartphone seamless by transferring essential data such as contacts, videos, photos and calendar events wirelessly and without being connected to a computer to an Android device.

The app helps users by walking them through the basic steps they need to do before keeping their original iPhones. It can copy videos and photos on iCloud to transfer to the target device, with permissions to be enabled for this.

‘Switch to Android’ is now available for free download from the App Store. iPod Touch and iPhones must be running iOS 12.0 or later.
