Besides, Apple has its own migration tools for Windows to Mac and Android to iOS.

The company didnt formally announce it, but Microsoft watchers and Windows sites have nonetheless discovered it. However, rather than being a two-in-one, Microsoft may adopt the traditional clamshell design.

For those who don't know, all current variants of Surface Book sport a 2-In-1 design, allowing the hybrid device to be used as either a laptop or tablet, thanks to the detachable display screen. In addition to targeting designers and architects with the new Surface Studio all-in-one PC in October, the company also dished out a $650 trade-in discount to Mac owners to apply toward a new Surface device. However, according to reports only 500,000 Microsoft Surface Books were sold previous year due to its high price. The website provides a FAQ to answer the queries regarding syncing an iPhone to the new Surface device.

Whether you're a Mac fan or a PC person, I can hand you any laptop in the world, you can log into your Facebook and Google accounts, and do probably 90% of what you need to do. Although, despite the name, I suspect it will help move from any Mac to any computer running Windows 10.

However, getting customers to jump the Apple ship may be an impossible feat. While these are now offered for Windows along with other utilities in Adobe's Creative Suite portfolio, Mac devices seemingly serve as "home base" for many designers and architects.

There have been reports that Microsoft has already started production of its Surface Book 2 laptops, with the intent to release the device in April which is only weeks away at this point.
