Why Is It So Hard To Switch From Apple to Android? | Untangled



being part of Apple's ecosystem has its benefits for one you can enjoy the beauty of iMessage it syncs seamlessly across all of your Apple devices but switching to an Android means you have to say goodbye so I message in order to get rid of iMessage and finally get text on your new Android you need to turn off iMessage on all of your Apple devices and you register your phone number from iMessage on this specific website and once you successfully turn off iMessage your text may get all messed up if someone sends you an iMessage you won't receive it and if you're in an iMessage group message you'll need to make a new one for SMS why is it so hard to make the switch iMessage is just one of many ways Apple keeps users in their ecosystem take iCloud for example it's Apple's built in cloud storage space that automatically keeps all of your notes calendar events Safari bookmarks and photos you can seamlessly access all this information on any of your Apple devices but not on your new Android there's no iCloud app for Android meaning there's no easy way for you to transfer all your iCloud data to your Android of course if you've been using Google as your main ecosystem then you may have an easier time going back and forth between your iPhone and your Android but then what about your photos that are stored on your iPhone that aren't backed up on iCloud how do you transfer those the easiest way is to ask if your phone carrier can do it for you otherwise there are several apps that can help transfer your photos from your iPhone to Android and speaking of apps you may have trouble transferring those to for the most part you'll have to redownload them individually and you might need to repurchase iOS apps on the Play Store but if you used a facebook login or email registration you might be able to get around that the place or does have more apps than the App Store but some iOS apps you've used might not be available on the Play Store like bear or Rent the Runway I should say Google is making this transferring data process easier with the quick switch adapter for the pixel but even if transferring photos and apps are made easier it's hard to say goodbye to airdrop you'll no longer be able to conveniently send files from your iPhone to your MacBook to your iPad or to another person's Apple device but hey at least you'll stop getting weird air drops when you're on the train switching to Android also means losing all of Apple's pre-installed apps there may be a good chunk you don't use but think about FaceTime you'll have to use another app to video call people like Facebook Messenger or Google duo which also means getting whoever you want to call to use those apps as well you'll also be losing Apple News voice memo podcasts health wallet and Apple Maps just kidding no one uses Apple maps you aren't just saying goodbye to Apple software think about all your other Apple products and accessories if you have an Apple watch it'll basically become useless if you have air pods you can still use them on Android but it won't be nearly as seamless or customizable and all your chargers adapters and dongles that you bought will begin to collect dust and as Android phones keep coming up with more innovations that iPhones lack like better cameras with wide-angle lenses it doesn't really make sense for Apple to help their users jump ship so yeah iPhone users are in a walled garden but have some sympathy it's way easier to enter Apple's ecosystem than it is to leave it and if you're in an iMessage ah I was about to say I message I grew they might as well call it AI group

  1. Hey excuse me, just a regular Apple user passing by this horrible video and seeing an Apple Sheep talking so much great BS things Apple has that Android doesn’t🤬, I mean… c’mon Android isn’t bad like downloading free stuff and great UI customization, yes there maybe some cons at Android, but there’s some pros to, same goes for Apple, I respect both Apple and Android user for what they choose, so Tech Insider, learn will ya, and let’s just say seeing this video just makes me feel ashamed to be an Apple user ughhhhhhhhhhh🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️

    Ohh yeah btw, so you’re trying to say that Apple is the best huhhh, well guess what I have some complaints with Apple’s new Monitor $5K Monitor that doesn’t come with a stand and it’s sold separately with a price tag of $999😱😱😱😡😡😡

  2. Android is like having a Sports car with a Manual transmission. You can do whatever you want, whenever you want. You can drive and actually have fun driving your car. iOS maybe smoother but apart from being a control freak, it's just not fun to drive.
    One more thing, can you put a price on freedom? that's what Android is giving you!

  3. Theres an app on android that adds battery, animation and pausing out of ear detection for airpods. The app is called airbattery it is free but there is a pro version for 1.50 aud

  4. Not even sure what to say. I use both iOS and Android and have no issues at all going back and forth. This was painful to watch. You may want to rethink the name of this channel.
