Apple to allow users to easily switch from iPhone to Android, here’s how

Apple is developing a feature for EU-based iPhones that allows easy switching to Android, uninstallation of Safari web browser, and potentially complete data transfer by 2025. The feature complies with EU’s Digital Markets Act.

. This move from Apple comes as a part of the Digital Markets Act (DMA) in the EU, according to a new compliance document published by the company which details all the ways Apple is complying with the EU’s DMA that went into effect this week.
Apple to offer easy switching option from iPhone to non-Apple smartphones
That means the feature is expected to be exclusive to EU-based iPhones, just like the support for third-party app stores. Moreover, Apple will also allow iPhone users to uninstall the Safari web browser.
A user-friendly way of transferring data from iPhone to Android or other platforms is set to arrive in 2025, while the ability to uninstall the Safari web browser will be made available by the end of 2024.

It is important to note that, currently, there’s no information available on whether these features will be available exclusively in the iPhones sold in EU regions or will be made available to iPhones globally.
Meanwhile, Google already has an iOS app — Switch to Android — that allows users to seamlessly and quickly transfer data and files including contacts, photos, videos, free apps, texts and notes. Google’s support page, however, mentions that not all the data can be moved between the different platforms. For instance, paid apps, Safari bookmarks, alarms and some files won’t be moved.
This is where Apple’s new easy file transfer feature for iPhone can come in handy and we may get to see a complete data transfer between the two platforms similar to iPhone to iPhone or Android to Android.
