Google: Moving from iOS to Android just got easier with this app

After almost nine months, Google has now published its "Switch to Android" migration app in the App Store. With it, it is possible to transfer iPhone data to an Android. The app supports all devices that support iOS 12 and newer. The app transfers your own contacts, calendar appointments, photos and videos from your iPhone. When switching, the app warns the user to turn off iMessage so that they can at least receive an SMS from their iPhone contacts. The photos and videos can also be downloaded from iCloud if iCloud Library has been activated, for this the app launches a standard request to the Apple service on behalf of the user. However, moving third-party apps is not possible. Whatsapp & Co. has to be laboriously moved separately.
