Moto Migrate

Motorola just made it easier to switch from an iPhone 

Back in October we saw iCloud-to-Google data transfer hit the Moto Maker process, and today Motorola has added it to the stand-alone Moto Migrate app.

Using the app, you can easily transfer data from your old iPhone to your new Moto X, Moto G, Droid Maxx, Droid Ultra or Droid Mini. The process looks pretty straightforward — simply supply the necessary credentials, and the app lets you know how long the heavy lifting will take. While the data transfer from another Android device will include photos, videos, text history, call history and SIM contacts, the transfer from iCloud only includes contacts and calendar events.

We're not sure there are a rush of people switching from an iPhone to a new Motorola model, but for those that do it just got a little easier.

Moto Migrate app now imports your data from iCloud


I know a few people that if there music and movies would be able to be transferred by the app, they would buy a Moto tomorrow.

You can transfer the music with Google Music. Just sign onto Google Music with your computer that has your iTunes and it will transfer your music.

Moto Migrate is one of the coolest things that came with the Moto X.

It did everything. Even all the music, which was also in Google Music, but pinned on the old phone. Pictures, Movies, Text Messages, everything.

I know someone who won't migrate from their old iPhone 4, simply because her entire romance is in her text messages.

Me too! Other than the minor headache of trying to transfer from iTunes to Google play, it's been great! HUGE fan of this phone!

Google replaces a lot of the explicit songs with the clean version when transferring iTunes music.

I don't know about y'all. It seems as though this broke my email. I no longer am receiving emails from iCloud, saying this my email settings are wrong. How can they be wrong I got em from Hopefully it's a small fix.. it also seems as though my iPod isn't receiving emails either. So it could be an iCloud thing all together. #thanksobama!

I am officially no longer calling you a troll. Thanks for that laugh. #onlytechiesunderstand

Seriously. At least make a similar version called "Google Migrate" or "Get the Fucking off of ios"

Looks like Motorola could teach Google a few new tricks to improve the experience.

You're putting the cart before the horse, bud. Moto wasn't doing anything right two years ago. What has changed at Moto? Huh? There you go...

Good! Help rescue people from the Iphone Matrix!

With Bump closing down at the end of the month we need something to be able transfer contacts and media without a computer. Hopefully Google releases something to replace it.
