Rumor: Apple Is Working On A Tool To Let iOS Users Switch To Android

According to a report from Telegraph, Apple is thought to be working on a new app that will facilitate existing iOS users to switch to Android devices.

This new move might have to do with legal issues rather than an altruistic move. Apparently European telecom carriers are concerned that due to the technical hassle of transferring data from iOS ecosystem to other platforms, fewer users are willing to switch to an alternative platform, such as Android, and are forced to keep using iOS because of that.

The operators fear that the lack of switching weakens their hand in commercial negotiations with Apple, which holds the mobile industry’s strongest card in the iPhone. Its popularity among more affluent consumers means operators are dependent on supplies for most of their profits.

Apple has previously launched an app called “Move To iOS” that allows Android users to easily transfer contacts and data and other files over onto iOS devices. However, the app was not very well-received by the Android community.

While Apple has yet to officially launch an app to switch from iOS to Android, this move will definitely put a dent in Apple’s plan to lock customers in their ecosystem.
