Apple has released Move to iOS app for Android that allows Android users to easily move to iPhone, iPap or iPod touch.
The app was showcased at the WWDC back in June and will make it much easier for Android smartphone users to switch to an iPhone and move all Contacts, Message history, Camera photos and videos, Web bookmarks, Mail accounts and Calendars from your Android device.
Apple’s description of Move to iOS makes it sound pretty seamless:
Just download the Move to iOS app to wirelessly switch from your Android device to your new iOS device. It securely transfers your contacts, message history, camera photos and videos, web bookmarks, mail accounts, calendars, wallpaper, and DRM-free songs and books. And it will help you rebuild your app library, too. Any free apps you used — like Facebook and Twitter — are suggested for download from the App Store. And your paid apps are added to your iTunes Wish List.
Once the Android app is installed and you are ready with iOS 9 setup in the Apps & Data screen, you need to tap Move Data from Android on the iOS device. Open the Move to iOS app on the Android device, open the Move to iOS and tap Continue.
You will get a ten-digit code on your iOS device that you need to enter on your Android device. If the code matches, a Transfer Data screen will appear. Once you choose the content to transfer and tap Next, it will take some time for the transfer to complete depending on how much content you’re moving. It uses Wi-Fi Direct on both the devices to transfer content wirelessly, so you don’t need data or WiFi connection.
The Move to iOS is now available for download from Google Play and works on Android devices running on Android 4.0 (KitKat) or later. It requires setting up an iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch on iOS 9, so if you have already finished setup, you’ll have to erase your iOS device and start over.
