While this report claimed that "Apple has privately agreed to develop a simple tool to help consumers shift data such as contacts, music and photos if they move to Android" In a chat to Buzzfeed, an official spokesperson crushed these claims, stating that "There is no truth to this rumor," furthering that "We are entirely focused on switching users from Android to iPhone, and that is going great."

Although the assisted move will no longer be happening, Apple has released a few apps on the Android store, including Move to iOS, Beats Pill+ and Apple Music.
