Google has quietly released a free app for iOS that reportedly allows you to easily transfer data from an iPhone to an Android device from 9to5Google. The Switch To Android app works wirelessly, so you don’t have to worry about connecting the two phones with a cable.
“Google’s Switch to Android app lets you quickly and securely transfer your most important types of data — photos, videos, contacts, and calendar events — to a brand new Android device without the hassle of cables,” the app’s description reads in the App Store. This list doesn’t contain any messages, so the app doesn’t seem to be able to transfer them, although it does guide you through disabling iMessage so “don’t miss text messages from friends and family”.
9to5Google says this is a unlisted app, and that seems to be the case as I can’t find it when searching the App Store on my iPhone. However, you can download it immediately this direct link. Google didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment on when the app might officially be listed on the App Store.
