Xiaomi is reportedly working on easing the whole transition process from iOS to Android. The Chinese company is making adjustments to its smartphone’s hardware and software, allowing users to easily transfer their data over from iPhones to its smartphones.
Xiaomi’s Mi Note is the company’s latest flagship and it houses a dual-SIM dual-standby capability. Considering the fact that Apple devices use nano-SIM cards, users would not have to worry about switching back to micro-SIM cards as the Mi Note sports a special SIM card tray that houses both nano and micro-SIM cards. The micro-SIM card will be taking up a slot while the other will be used for either a nano-SIM card or a microSD card.
As for the software, the Chinese firm may be developing an app in accompaniment with the hardware changes. If it is true, the app will be released on the Apple App Store and it will be able to sync contacts and migrate important user data. Xiaomi is not the first to introduce transition measures as OnePlus has previously made its own guide on how to convert from iOS to the OnePlus One as well.
It doesn’t end there. Xiaomi may also be planning to launch a trade-in program in conjunction with its Mi Note campaign. Those who are interested in making the jump can trade in any iPhone model up to the 5s – regardless of its condition – for a free Mi Note. For those trading in the iPhone 6 or 6 Plus, they will get the even more premium Mi Note Pro for free.
Unfortunately, this program will only be available in China.
It seems Xiaomi is taking huge measures to take over Apple’s market share in China and they certainly look aggressive enough to be on the right path with its strategic marketing plan. All that’s left now is for a flawless execution of the plan.
