Apple has released Move to iOS, its first Android app ever. The tool helps you migrate your essential data to your iOS device over Wi-Fi.

Move to iOS creates a private Wi-Fi network to transfer your contacts, calendars, email accounts, messages and camera roll. All you need to do is enter a security code displayed on your iPhone and select what you want to move to initiate the process.

The app should help people switch to the new iPhones when they launch later this month. It works with previous iPhones as well, and is compatible with Android devices running KitKat 4.0 or newer.
