With the introduction of the 2022 iPhone 14 series possibly six weeks away, Apple is taking the opportunity to plant a seed in the minds of Android users. A video posted today by the Cupertino team is titled “Switching to iPhone. All Your Questions Answered.”
The video opens with the majestic front door of the Apple Store in Barcelona, Spain. The video host (an Apple Genius) answers some of the most frequently asked questions from Android users about switching to iOS and iPhone. “It’s a simple and easy process,” says the host. And as someone who has switched back and forth over the years, this writer would have to agree.

Another question is: “If I switch to iPhone, will it be maintained over time?” Our host says “definitely” as the iPhone is durable and resistant to dust, spills, and splashes. He also mentions the battery life, which is spectacular, especially with the iPhone 13 Pro Max. In our tests, the iPhone 13 Pro Max streamed video for 10 hours and 23 minutes, browsed the web for 18 hours and 52 minutes, and played 3D games for 10 hours and 29 minutes before the battery died.
The next question is “If I switch to iPhone, will I get the latest updates?” The answer is that the iPhone comes with the latest version of the operating system right out of the box. “This is another great thing that Android users would love to have on an iPhone,” says the presenter. And to show how long Apple supports older models, he points out that the iPhone 6s, released in 2015, still received iOS 15.

When it comes to protecting personal information, Apple says that “iPhone is built from the ground up to protect your privacy and give you control over your information.” And if you need Apple support to use your new device, the video says Apple is there by letting you chat or iMessage with an actual member of the company’s support staff without the Apple employee trying to upsell.
