Apple may launch application to make life easier for those who want to migrate to Android [atualizado: negado]

In mid-September, we reported that Apple's first Android app had been released. This is the Move to iOS, a utility that serves to make life easier for those who want to exchange a smartphone with Android for an iPhone, helping with the migration of data such as contacts, calendars and photos. For now the company may be developing a similar one, but so that users of iPhones can migrate to Android.

According to the The Telegraph, European mobile operators are putting pressure on Apple to create the “Move to Android” in order to make things easier for users who want to leave her ecosystem (something that’s not so simple for a layperson). Definitely not something that we would see Apple deliberately create, but the newspaper says that, because of this pressure (which could end in some kind of process involving Apple's anti-competitive activity), Ma agreed behind the scenes to make this application.

Such utilities already exist in the App Store (like Copy My Data), but it is undeniable that a solution coming from Apple itself, even if it is not as complete as Move to iOS would be more interesting for those users who want to leave the Apple ecosystem.

Ball out of The Telegraph. John Paczkowski (from BuzzFeed, which has great sources within Apple) got the following statement from the company:

This rumor is not true. We are totally focused on migrating users from Android to iPhone, and we are doing it very well.

Case closed. 😜
