10 reasons to switch from Android to iPhone

With no less than eight iPhone models to choose from, there’s no better time than now to switch to an iPhone. The new iPhone SE is both small in size and price but features the latest A15 Bionic chip. There are new green shades on the iPhone 13 range; and customers can also shop the iPhone 12 and 12 mini alongside the iPhone 11.

 


Here are 10 reasons to switch from Android to iPhone:

 


1. Software Updates: Apple is known for rolling out the latest iOS software on its iPhones globally at the same time. You will always have the most up-to-date security features regardless of age of device, thus bringing peace of mind. iPhone is are built to last, unlike Android phones that make you wait up to a year for updates.

 


2. App Store: Apple’s App Store has more than 3.6 million apps and over 984 000 games, including many exclusives. Customers are spoilt for choice with good quality apps as the process is very stringent, with checks for malware and spyware. Users can see upfront what data is collected for each app before downloading it.

 


3. Productivity is included: Apple’s iWork suite of productivity apps are available as free downloads. It includes Pages, Numbers and Keynote that are all compatible with iPhone and working on the go. Aimed at office, school and remote working, no subscription is required, and it is compatible with Microsoft Office. 

 


4. Creativity is included: Apple has a strong focus on creativity so it’s no surprise that you get free powerful tools such as iMovie, Clips, Photos and GarageBand. A recent iMovie iPhone update allows you to create Hollywood style trailers, and Magic Movies, which stitches together titles, music, and transitions, without requiring editing skills. 

 


5. Ecosystem: When it comes to Apple’s ecosystem, all hardware works seamless together, including accessing data between them. Whether you own an iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch, MacBook, Apple TV, your iCloud account will sync and talk to each other with minimal effort. 

 


6. Privacy built-in: The iPhone is packed with built-in privacy features like ability to control which apps tracks you, transparent software updates, iCloud Keychain for passwords, privacy reports that show app permissions, and ‘Sign in with Apple’ for new services that limits the information shared about you, including hiding your email address.

 


7. Accessibility built-in: Apple is miles ahead with its accessibility features built into the iPhone. This includes Voice Control, Large Text, VoiceOver, Screen Magnifier, Smart Invert, and more. No matter what restrictions a person faces, the iPhone makes it easier to use and control, including reading every action and message out aloud.

 


8. Performance: Apple has been building its own chips for the iPhone for years, and performance is consistently better and smooth when compared to Android. Due to making its own hardware and software, on one system, it all blends together and is optimised for efficiency.

 


9. Your iPhone is awesome: It has a bunch of hidden tricks, such as using the keyboard as a track pad; the ability to hide photos; turn on the AssistiveTouch floating button for 6 actions; it has a built-in level; and to set an emergency contact that displays when the keypad is locked.

 


10. Move data from Android to iOS: Apple has made it easy to switch from Android to iPhone with the ‘Move to iOS’ app on the Google Play Store. Make sure both devices are charged and all the data you want to move across will fit onto your new iPhone and follow the on-screen instructions to complete your switch.
