The only constant with Samsung is change. Every year is feels like they try something different. That can make it both interesting and maddening for those already using one of the company's phones, or waiting to see what using one might be like. Take the all-new Samsung Galaxy S6 by way of example. It swaps out the plastic casing, replaceable battery, SD card slot, and water-proofing of last year's model for a metal chassis, and Touch ID- and Apple Pay-like features that seem right out of the iPhone's playbook. So, whether you feel like Samsung is no longer filling your needs, or if you're going to iPhone-like you might as well go iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus proper, here's what you need to know to switch — or switch back — to iPhone.
How to switch from Samsung to iPhone
If you're already using Google services, it's ridiculously easy to switch from any Samsung phone to the iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus. That's because Google makes almost all their apps for iOS, including YouTube, Google Maps, Gmail, Hangouts, Google+, Google Authenticator, Chrome, Google Search, Google Drive, Google Play Music, and more. It's no secret Google covets iPhone owners, so they make sure the company's best apps are there, and provide a great experience. In most cases, switching to iPhone is as simple as downloading the Google apps and logging in.
