In the same principle like most major tech companies, Apple basically is not known to easily comment on speculation lest say rumors. But once in a very blue moon, the company makes a critical outright statement to clear the air about inaccurate reports. And this is what is happening when Apple flatly denied the The Telegraph’s report of a formal, Apple-built migration tool that would assist in the move of consumers switching from iOS to Android. “There is no truth to this rumor,” an Apple spokesperson told BuzzFeed News. “We are entirely focused on switching users from Android to iPhone, and that is going great.”
Apple’s Move to iOS app, which happens to a free download, enables Android users to go about a transfer of their data to a freshly purchased iPhone. But The Telegraph had it on its reports that, owing to very heavy pressure from European telecom companies, Apple has been working (without making any publicity about it) on software which will make possible the switch of consumers or preferably route for a much flexible and convenient pull-over to Android.
Apple’s brief and strong denial from the look of things greatly discredited that rumor. But then one helping word here word of advice: simply keep your data in the cloud, people (making use of secure, strong passwords). Really, it is not cumbersome to make a switch between these operating systems when your contacts, photos, calendars, and email could be accessed from any device.
One irritating inconvenience however is preserving text message history, but seeing as Apple is pushing for we all to employ the services of iMessage, the company has little or no justification as to make ditching the iPhone an automatic or less stressful activity.
