Just before buying a new smartphone, the question always arises that limits most of us:

if I have an iPhone, can I copy the content to Android?

Now, a few years late, Google has put an end to one of the big obstacles and is developing a new application - Switch to Android - according to a report on the 9to5google website.



The new tool, similar to Apple's Move to iOS application launched about 6 years ago, allows users to copy all content and information between operating systems, including apps - which will be reinstalled from Google's Play Store (if they exist on Android), contacts, photos and messages .

The report on 9 to5google indicates that the information transfer between the devices will be done via a wireless connection (WiFi), in some cases you may be required to enter the Apple ID information in order to import the content.



Meanwhile, one of the popular ways to keep information when switching between operating systems is to sync the content on Google services like Google Drive or Google Photo, which can be accessed through an app.

Another and slightly more complex way is to download all the content to the computer, and manually transfer to the new device.
