Why I made the switch from Android to iOS

 · 1 min read

I just recently made the switch from Android to iOS now that is a big change at least what devices and operating systems are concerned. But why would a person that loves Android make the switch to iOS? Let me explain.

First off I think iOS has the “better” apps most of the apps that I use on iOS like 1Password have more features and are more robust. Second Safari offers native web blocking capabilities like using an Adblocker. But what problems did I need to overcome in order the make the switch from Android to iOS. The first one may not even be a general problem. But I wanted to change from Google Photos to Apples photo system. So I had to download all my 9000 photos and reupload them into the iCloud photo library. That took me 3 day (25GB to upload). The second problem that I need to figure out was how to move my contacts and calendar too iCloud. But that as it turned out was really really easy. After that the only sad think was that I was not able to transfer my WhatsApp chats over to my iOS device. Yes I know there are some programs out there that claim to be able to do this, but I don’t trust them. So I just started from scratch. After that I was ready to go. I can’t wait too what the future will bring for me. I also bought an Apple Watch but I will talk about that and why I like it more then my old Huawei watch in another article.
