Apple releases video answering questions about switching to iPhone from Android

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.

Considering switching from Android to iOS? Watch Apple’s new video

The first question is whether it will be easy to transfer contacts, photos and messages from Android phone to iPhone. Thanks to Move to iOS app, found in the Google Play Store, the answer is “yes”. You can select what content you want to switch to your new iPhone, including messages, contacts, calendar, camera roll, your Google account, and more.
An Android owner wants to know that if he decides to buy an iPhone, can he trade in an Android phone? The answer, of course, is “yes” unless the device is not eligible for a trade-in. In that case, Apple will help you recycle it. And if you’re not sure which iPhone to buy, Apple will help you decide.

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.

Those who switch to iPhone will also be able to experience the smooth performance of the phone that will last for years. This means that when it’s time to trade in your new iPhone, it “will still be valuable.” And Apple uses the video to point out that iOS is trustworthy and prevents the phone from being bricked because it comes from Apple. Other phone makers, our host points out, get their software from another company (ie Google), leading to delayed updates that might be less reliable.

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.

Try not to get caught up in the excitement that the introduction of a new phone brings

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.

The Tips app is not only available to help you use your phone, but you can also visit any Apple Store and talk to the staff, even if you haven’t bought one yet.

It’s easy to get caught up in the excitement surrounding the unveiling of new iOS and Android phones. If you’re not a phone enthusiast, ask people you know about their experiences with a particular device. Go to a retailer and check out the phones they have on display putting several in your hand to see how you feel. And keep coming back here for the latest news and reviews that could help you make an informed decision.
