Apple is reportedly developing a tool that will let existing iPhone users more easily switch to Android. Such an option would be a big departure for Apple and its closed ecosystem, but it is apparently the result of pressure from carriers, not because the American company suddenly wants to play nice, reported VentureBeat.
Apple has a very specific strategy compared to Google and Microsoft when it comes to its rivals’ app stores. That said, last year the company released its first three Android apps: Move to iOS, Beats Pill+, and Apple Music. The first one, which was quickly destroyed with one-star reviews, lets Android users more easily switch to Apple’s iOS by moving their personal data for them.
Unsurprisingly, Apple’s first Android app benefits Apple. This alleged new tool would help Google (Windows and BlackBerry OS are not mentioned).
