Google to Make Switching From Android to iOS Easy as Pie

Google is now developing an app called the “Switch to Android” app for iOS, similar to Apple’s “Move to iOS” app for Android.

Google to Make Switching From Android to iOS Easy as Pie – A new application code name “Data Restore Tool” version 1.0.382048734 surfaced on Google-developed application. This suggests Google is working on a new iOS app called “Switch to Android,” which will be able to replicate your iPhone’s essential data and transfer your apps. Let’s take a look at how the application works.

How does it Work?

Android to iOS

The official method for transferring data from your iPhone to a new Android device is to back it up to Google Drive and then download it again on your new phone. This backs up your most valuable data and photos, but not your apps or anything else the user doesn’t authorize it to.

Google is now developing an app called the “Switch to Android” app for iOS, similar to Apple’s “Move to iOS” app for Android. Here is how folks can use the application.

Step 1: Get the Switch to the Android app from the App Store.

Step 2: Go to your Wi-Fi settings

Step 3: Connect to network ^1 and enter password ^2

In addition, some of the tool’s phrasing has been updated to reflect the fact that more iOS data will be transferable than before. For example, the app now states that it can move apps.

To transfer apps, SMS messages, and contacts, enter your iTunes® backup password

Your iPhone® is managed by your organization and has encrypted content.

To transfer apps, iCloud® contacts, device contacts, and iMessage® messages, you’ll need to remove device management on your iPhone®.

Other than downloading the Android version of iOS apps on a new device, it’s ambiguous how Google plans to “transfer” apps from iOS to Android, and the actual app data will be transferable. As paid apps cannot be transferred over and will need to be purchased again through the Google Play Store.
