Update: An Apple spokesperson has sent Buzzfeed a statement denying the report that it is working on iPhone-to-Android data transfer tool:
"There is no truth to this rumor," Apple spokesperson Trudy Muller said in a statement to BuzzFeed News. "We are entirely focused on switching users from Android to iPhone, and that is going great."
Original story: If you're currently an owner of the iPhone but wish to make the switch to Android, there's little in regards to aid from Apple you'll receive to make the process easier when transferring data. This is reportedly about to change in part due to European operators who have pressured Apple to working on offering a tool that does just that.
Apple, much like its competitors, offer tools and apps to help consumers switch to their own platforms, but this will be quite the venture for Apple, ensuring that those who wish to leave the company's ecosystem have the means to do so without issue. It's believed that operators fear Apple's controlling dominance of the industry, making it more difficult for consumers to switch from iOS.
From The Telegraph:
"According to a senior industry source, Apple has privately agreed to develop a simple tool to help consumers shift data such as contacts, music and photos if they move to Android. Major European telecoms operators are concerned that only a tiny fraction of customers ever move off the iPhone, in part because of the technical hassle of transferring data."
Google's manufacturing partners already offer such solutions on Android that help consumers switch over from other platforms, be it Windows Phone or iOS, but this would mark an initial offering from Apple itself to aid people to leave its grasp. How have you found the process from switching to Android (if you happened to do so in the past)?
