Microsoft began preparing to migrate users from Mac to her own devices. The company wants to make the process easier: move user data from Apple computer on Surface is possible without any extra effort.
In Redmond decided to simplify user transition from macOS to Windows, releasing a new tool “Mac to Surface Assistant”. The tool is designed to easily migrate data from a Mac to a Microsoft Surface tablet.
After accepting the license agreement the user can choose specific folders that you want to copy to your Surface, such as photos, documents, music and other personal data. After selecting the desired information, the system creates a Zip archive, which is further transferred to an external hard drive and on Surface.
Mac to Surface Assistant is not the only utility of its kind in the app store you can find dozens of programs to migrate data from one platform to another by means of cloud storage. Apple had already been offering applications for users to migrate from Windows to Mac and from Android to iPhone.
However, previously, Microsoft offered users instructions and tips for transferring to Windows devices. The company has not officially announced a Mac to Surface Assistant, but the program is already available for download.
In December last year, Microsoft was optimistic about the hybrid lineup of Surface tablets and said that more and more users are switching from Mac for its devices. Despite the bold statements, the company refused to share information about the sales Surface.
