Motorola(s goog) made it easier for iPhone(s aapl) owners to transfer some handset data to a new Moto X on Wednesday. A new web tool on the MotoMaker website can grab iOS contacts and calendar events from Apple’s iCloud, said Punit Soni, VP of Product Management at Motorola Mobility.
In a Google+ post explaining the new feature, Soni said that after consumers buy a Moto X through the MotoMaker site, they’ll have the chance to migrate their data. A help page shows exactly how the data fields will translate between iOS and Android. The new service may not push many from iPhones to the Moto X, but for those who do make the move, the new tool will be appreciated.
