If you're a former Android user who's made the switch to Apple, you're probably familiar with Move To iOS (above). The app automatically moves some of your Android phone's features to your new iPhone, so you don't have to.

That's cool, and a lot of people like it. Apple in October said it has seen the most Android users ever switch over to Apple. That includes nearly 15 million people in just a three-month period.

So, if reports are correct, it's curious that Apple is about to make it easier for Apple users to switch to Android. Note: To put things in context, Android dominates the smartphone market. It's installed in 81% of smartphones worldwide, according to IDC. iOS' share is 16%.

Apple is said to be developing a Move To iOS-style app that'll make it easy to transfer you iPhone's apps, contacts, and more to Android devices. Apple is apparently worried the European Commission will slap it with fines for antitrust practices.

The EU has a history of whacking companies like Google with fines or threats for making it tough for people to use competing products. No word yet from Apple if it is making a Move To Android app.
