How to easily switch from Android to iPhone!

Google makes it easier than ever to switch from Android to iPhone

More people than ever are switching from Android to iPhone, be it for the new, big screens, the terrific industrial design, the focus on security and privacy, the great apps, or any of a dozen other reasons. We've been getting a lot of feedback, however, from people who want to make the switch but are worried that it might be too much work — or are especially concerned over the stress involved in finding new apps and services to replace the ones they've been using on Android. Luckily, that's not the case, thanks to Google!

Six Apple Watch features we'd love to see on the next iPhone

The Apple Watch is something new, and that means it's filled with fresh and interesting ideas — ideas that could be something great on the company's next iPhone.

Apple has been working on its smartphone for over a decade, and iterating on that work going on eight years. Come this fall, we'll almost certainly see a new generation of iPhone models — let's call them iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus, to stick to pattern — with iOS 9 to go with them.

The Apple Watch, in contrast, has undergone related but distinct development for just about four years now. It's Apple's signature hardware — but wearable — and more importantly, it's iOS, rethought for the wrist. Jony Ive, Kevin Lynch, and the teams working on the Watch have come up with features that could be, with the proper translations, just as compelling in the hand with your iPhone. Here are our top six we'd love to see brought over from Watch OS to iOS this fall.

The difference between Apple and Samsung industrial design

"Paint the back of the fence", has been referenced time and again, "because you'll know."

It's a quote from the late Steve Jobs' father intended to help instill pride in craft. Jony Ive, Apple's senior vice president of design, has spoken numerous times about the importance and inevitability of great design as well, about the care and consideration it takes, and how people notice it even when they don't notice themselves noticing it.

Recently there was a brouhaha about a Qualcomm sticker junking up the Samsung Galaxy S6 on Verizon. You don't see a sticker like that on the iPhone 6 or any other iPhone, of course, because Apple cares more about the look of their product than the licensing fees or other considerations refusing it entails. Same with Intel Inside stickers on the Mac.

But when I looked at the picture of Samsung's product, it wasn't the sticker that bothered me so much. That, I assume, can be peeled off. It was something else I saw that bothered me, and something I can now never un-see.

Switch to iPhone: For a better Microsoft experience

If you want or need to use Microsoft Office and services, you'll want to use them on iPhone.

We've already covered how iPhone and iOS provide not only a great Apple app experience, but a great Google and Microsoft app experience as well. Because of the iPhone's popularity and uniformity of platform, it's not only easy to develop for iOS, it's hard not to. That may be why a lot of people who prefer Google or Microsoft services also prefer switching to iPhone to use them on Apple's hardware. It's not just Apple enthusiasts who say so either.

Accidental Apple Pay triggers: When iPhone and NFC don't get along

I love Apple Pay, but I wish it wouldn't automatically trigger for every NFC chip everywhere.

On Wednesday, I spent a lovely afternoon with my aunt, uncle, and gentleman friend at Fenway Park in Boston to see the Red Sox. (Unfortunately, they ended a two-game winning streak by losing quite definitively 10-5 to the Nationals, but it made my Montreal-born aunt pretty happy.)

But we came close to not making it through the gates, thanks to an iPhone quirk with NFC and Apple Pay.

Switch to iPhone: For a more private Google experience

Google values iPhone owners so much they make sure most of their apps run on iOS, and that can be a big advantage.

The apps that Google has released for the iPhone include YouTube, Google Maps, Gmail, Hangouts, Google+, Google Authenticator, Chrome, Google Search, Google Drive, Google Play Music, and more. Having them all on the App Store makes it easier for Android owners to switch to iPhone.
