Move to iOS is an Android app that will allow users to migrate their data from Google’s Android mobile operating system — Apple’s biggest competitor — to Apple’s operating system, iOS. This will include, according to the brief preview on Apple’swebsite, contacts, photos and even apps that are available on both platforms.

“Just download the Move to iOS app to wirelessly switch from your Android device to your new iOS device,” Apple wrote.

“It securely transfers your contacts, message history, camera photos and videos, web bookmarks, mail accounts, calendars, wallpaper, and DRM-free songs and books. And it will help you rebuild your app library, too. Any free apps you used — like Facebook and Twitter — are suggested for download from the App Store. And your paid apps are added to your iTunes Wish List.”

When your data transfer is complete, you can then take your old Android phone to an Apple store for recycling.

The app, which will be released with iOS 9 in Q3 this year, will be one of two that are the first Apple has ever released on the Android platform. The other will be Apple’s new music streaming service, Apple Music, competing with Google’s music streaming service, Google Play Music, and other services such as Spotify.
