Updated Motorola Migrate helps iPhone users make the switch, thanks to iCloud support

by: Andrew GrushJanuary 21, 2014


Now that the Motorola Moto X is available in several different wood finishes, this could be the perfect time to ditch your iPhone and make the move over to Android. Even better, Motorola Migrate is going to make the job much easier, thanks to a new update for its Android app.

Up until now, the Migrate feature was designed to transfer content from an existing Android device over to a Motorola handset, but no longer. Now you can simply log into Migrate on your new Moto X, Moto G, Droid Maxx, Droid Mini or Droid Ultra and it will then pull down your contacts and calendar events directly from iCloud.

Switching platforms is always a bit of a tough (though worth it) transition, so it’s nice to see that Motorola Migrate is making the move a little less difficult. Aside from adding iCloud support, there’s also a bunch of random bug fixes, as we find in just about every Motorola app update.

To grab the update to Motorola Migrate, you’ll want to head on over to the Play Store.

    Awesome. Makes it easier for more people to switch from apple to the superior OS Android. A question, though it is not important, why are the nav button in the first picture dimmer than the rest, and why are the status bar icons brighter in the first picture than the rest. Not that important, but struck me as kind of odd.

      The pictures came from the Google Play listing. Not sure why they look different too be honest, but I noticed it as well.
