HTC One will import iPhone backups
HTC is clearly focusing a lot on software features to differentiate its recently announced One smartphone in the cutthroat high-end part of the market. This is obvious from the company’s work in areas such as the camera (and its Zoe feature / service) as well as the new Sense experience overall and the BlinkFeed scrolling news aggregator it comes with.
But HTC isn’t going to stop there. The Taiwanese company is working on improving its HTC Sync Manager desktop client. The new version of this app, which is currently being developed, will allow you to import iPhone backups into your HTC One.
Yes, you read that right. HTC’s Sync Manager will get the ability of reading iTunes backups, and sifting through those for all the photos, videos, calendar entries, and text messages it can find. Those are then automagically transferred to your HTC One.
This will undoubtedly make switching from an iPhone to the HTC One as seamless as possible. In fact, the process has never been so easy. Of course you’ll still have a lot of manual searching for apps to do, but this is a great start for HTC.
Right now it’s unclear if the new version of Sync Manager will work on both PCs and Macs, but the current one does, so we assume the next-gen one will too.
