Google Chairman Eric Schmidt shared a detailed guide on how to migrate from iPhone to Android last November, but now that process can be fully automated by an application, assuming that your device of choice is a new Motorola smartphone.
That’s because Motorola Migrate, an app that launched last August, has finally added support for iCloud, allowing iPhone owners to transfer their contacts and calendar events directly to a Moto X, Moto G, or Droid device. The app already lets users beam over photos, videos, text history, call history and SIM contacts.
Motorola began offering iCloud migration via its Moto Maker site in October, but this new Migrate feature makes things even more convenient. Motorola (and Google) will hope that, alongside a significant price difference and greater customization options with the Moto X, this sweetens its appeal.
