OEMs like HTC and Samsung have already offered "migrate from iOS" option, and now, Google seems to have introduced this feature to its Nexus devices through its new operating system, Android 7.0 Nougat. For a change, the search giant has placed the iOS migration option in the firmware set up itself.

A Reddit user has posted that Android 7.0 Nougat for Huawei Nexus 6P comes with an option to move data from Apple's iOS device. It came to light when the user was performing a factory reset on his handset. 

But in what could come as a disappointment for many, the migration option provided in the setup takes you to a website that provides information on how to migrate data from iOS instead of performing the task. Text message and emails can't be transferred from iOS device over Wi-Fi or OTG cable.

The website just instructs users to install various apps to move emails, iCloud mail, music and photos. In short, the migration option is not a tool. So, many will wonder why Google placed it in the setup of Android 7.0 Nougat.

Meanwhile, reports are doing the rounds that Google has started working on Android 7.1 Nougat, an upgraded version of the software, and it is expected to be launched along with the upcoming Nexus Marlin and Nexus Sailfish.

Google has released Android 7.0 Nougat to its Nexus devices. The new operating system brings several features like multi-window, direct reply notifications, Extra power efficiency, improved Java 8 language support, Google Assistant, Clear All, Data saver, VR interface, Seamless updates, Screen Zoom, Improved file browser, Instant Apps, App switch, bundled notifications, and new emojis.
