Why CHOOSE APPLE IPHONE? 👇🏿

7 Mar 2022

Why the apple way is better than the android way!! 

The vast majority of people love Android phones because of the different options of hardware and software customization that they have. However, if you happen to ask someone to recommend a good smartphone for you, they will probably ask you to buy an iPhone over Android. So the big question is, what are the advantages of iPhone over Android? In this article, i’m going to explain 10 benefits of having an iPhone over Android smartphone.
If you traverse across the Internet, you are likely to come across loads of Android fanboys making some pretty unflattering statements about iPhone users, or iPhone fans saying negative things about Android users.
But frivolous altercation aside, what are the advantages of iPhone over Android phones?
The short answer: The iPhone is user-friendly, has a sleek design, and it is very fast as far as its browsing speed is concerned. However, certain Android fanboys can’t really understand why people like Apple’s operating system, iOS.
what are benefits of iPhone over android?
If you ask iPhone users this question, they will most likely point out Apple’s Cleaner interface and design, data privacy, security or how simple it is to get an iPhone working right out of the box, or that they don’t need to take the time to customize a new phone extensively. They also love features such as iMessage, or they like some of the native apps that come pre-installed on a new iPhone, such as Books or Health. Now, let’s look at the major advantages of iPhone over Android.
Advantages of an iPhone over Android
Here are some of the advantages of having an iPhone over Android.


#1. iPhone is more user-friendly

Even though most Android phone creators try their best in producing these phones, iPhones remain to be the easiest phone to use until now. The look and feel of iOS has not changed over the years. This has been one advantage of iPhone over android phones because it works pretty much the same way it did in 2008. You just pick up, switch it on, and touch the app you want to open. Despite Apple making some improvements over the years like Control Center, the iPhone is still very easy to learn.   


#2. iPhones have extreme security

Another advantage of iPhone over Android phones is security. If you use your phone to access your email or social networks, log on to your bank’s website or mobile app, send texts, store contacts or take selfies, Then security should be of concern, as this data could be valuable to cybercrooks and potentially harmful to you or your loved ones.And then the US Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI) revealed to the world that even with physical possession of someone’s iPhone, it takes the assistance of an exceptionally skilled hacker to break into it and access the data. And that’s on a 32-bit phone. Apple doesn’t even make 32-bit phones anymore. They don’t expect iPhones to get infected. One of the biggest myths about iOS is that the operating system is immune to malware. However, iOS apps can still be infected with malware – there was the XcodeGhost debacle where hundreds of apps were found to include a counterfeit version of Xcode, the platform used by developers to build their apps.And using free wi-fi networks is just as big of a risk on iOS as it is on Android. However, Apple does take security seriously, releasing updates to all iOS devices directly, which helps contain any breaches upon becoming aware of them, and disinfecting everybody’s devices, regardless of who their carriers are. Google can’t do that for Android users, unless they have a Pixel or Nexus.


#3. iPhones works beautifully with Macs

If you’re shopping for a new smartphone and already have Apple products, like a Mac or an iPad, it makes sense to consider buying an iPhone. There are a variety of third-party apps you can use across your devices from different manufacturers. In addition, the Continuity feature in Apple products is really nice too. One good example is Handoff. If you own a mac, you can start working on a note on your iPhone and hand it off to your Mac to continue working on it. Also, you can send or receive messages from your mac even if your iPhone is 1000 miles away or turned off. How about that? Androids don’t get those.
There’s also AirDrop, which allows you to easily transfer photos, Videos and other files over Wi-Fi from your iPhone to a MacBook. And with iCloud keeping everything in sync, you have access on your Mac to the photos on your iPhone, and any notes or documents you create.They don’t want bloatware added by the carrierOn most Android phones, the carrier you purchase your phone through can add all kinds of apps and bloatware, and some can’t be uninstalled.This may not be a big problem when you have a brand new phone, but a year or two in when you need more storage space, you won’t be looking at those unwanted apps kindly.An iPhone, however, allows you to delete any unwanted apps when you set up your new phone. and starting with iOS 12, you can easily disable built-in apps you don’t need.


#4. You can update iOS in iPhone whenever you want

Another major advantage of iPhone over android is that you can update iOS in iPhone whenever you want. According to a recent report, about 80% of iOS devices were running iOS 14 – the latest version of Apple’s OS while Google reported that Android was 4.9% of the Android devices. The report further indicated that most Android users are still running the older versions of Android OS.


#5. Resale Value: iPhone Keeps Its Worth.

iPhones tends to hold their value pretty well. It’s easier to resell an iPhone than an Android phone if you want an upgrade. Though some Android devices also hold their value quite well, the cost of the upgrade is less painful for iPhone users.


#6. Apple Pay for mobile payments

Although Android manufacturers are trying to make Android Pay work, Apple Pay is the most popular method for making mobile payments. It is also very easy to use.
You can use Apple Pay by bringing your iPhone near the supported payment terminal at the checkout corner and then authenticate the payment with your phone’s Face ID or touch ID sensor. Apple Pay also supports reward cards and store issued credit card from a wide-range of companies. All of these are stored in the new Apple Wallet app.


#7. Family Sharing on iPhone saves you money

Family Sharing feature lets you share your purchases from App Store, iTunes, and iBooks with other people, even if they have their own separate accounts. Ideally, these other people are your family members, but there’s nothing to prevent you

from sharing your purchases with, say, your friends or roommates.

You can share these with your family with up to six people. By the way, when children want to make a purchase, you will receive an alert so you can also keep control on the stuff they buy in order to keep the bill under control. Other family sharing features include a shared calendar, shared photo albums and the ability to see where your kids are on a map at any time. Google still doesn’t offer these easy family sharing on Android devices.


#8. iPhones are generally faster than Android phones


 

Having used both platforms daily for years, I can say I’ve experienced way fewer glitches and slow-downs using iPhone. Performance is one of the area iOS beats Android most of the time. This seems ridiculous considering iPhone internals. The iPhone 13 Pro Max is currently the most powerful Apple smartphone and it features 6GB of RAM. Those specifications would be considered mid-range at best in the current Android world.


#9. Accessibility: iPhone is the king


iPhones are also preferred more over Android because of the accessibility features. In a head to head comparison, Apple is the accessibility king. Its built-in accessibility features, the many adaptive and assistive apps available, and ease of use make it the most preferred smartphone for the vast majority of people with disabilities.


For example, Apple’s iOS comes with a number of accessibility features (black on white, larger text sizes for default apps, interface zoom, etc.) that continue to be improved upon. Also, apple’s voiceover is acknowledged as one of its most useful accessibility feature. Voiceover is an accessibility feature that makes the iPhone and iPad easier to operate for the blind and visually impaired. With VoiceOver, anyone with a sight impairment can have their iPhone or iPad’s screen read to them, including buttons, icons, links, and other interface elements, and use gestures to navigate and select their options.through which they can easily operate and work through efficiently. It also has the feature of getting the light of the screen getting dimmed at night for the users who basically love to read the things at night.


#10. Apple provides the best Support


In general, both iPhone and Android phones work pretty well and, for day-to-day use, don’t usually malfunction. However, everything breaks down once in a while, and when that Happens, how you get support is very important.

If you have a problem with Android phone, you can search online forums or reach out to your carrier. But with the iPhone, you can tap into a vast database of useful help articles on Apple’s website itself and can get help via live chat or you can even make a genius bar reservation at your favorite Apple Store and get help from an Apple expert. Google still doesn’t offer this sort of direct relationship with its customers.


Advantages of an iPhone over Android? Now you know


With numerous benefits of having an iPhone over Android, it’s easy to figure out why iPhones are preferred more over Android device when it comes to recommending A friend or family member which phone to buy. iPhone provides much better technical support and it’s easy to update the latest iOS than in Android phones. Moreover, iPhone is preferred more than Android device when creating a new mobile app.

SHOULD YOU BUY AN IPHONE? this article will help you!

Apple has been one of the companies dominating the phone market, and if you have wondered if you should buy an iPhone, but can’t decide, this article is for you.


IOS 

iOS is pretty different from Android (or other OS’), but iOS is really clean and it should be really easy for you to understand.
iOS uses a different store: the App Store. The App Store contains many apps and games specific to iOS, but also contains many apps from all platforms. The App Store may not contain many Android games and apps so that’s something you should be aware of.
A pretty good thing about iOS is that it gets about 4–6 years of software support, that means an iPhone bought in 2020 will get support for up to iOS 18–19.
One more thing: iOS doesn’t allow side-loading, i.e; installing modded apps like YouTube Vanced.

Ecosystem

Apple’s Ecosystem is one of the well-known things about the company. The Apple Ecosystem is best in its class. For example: if you have a Mac or iPad, you have got yourself a universal clipboard. So if you copy something on your Mac, you can paste it on your iPhone! How cool is that?
Apple also have their own entertainment services, which include:
~Apple Music
~Apple TV+
~Apple Arcade
And much more.

Wrapping up

To wrap up this article, at the end of the day its your choice, I hope this article may have helped you make your decision. It is all about preferences. If you are still unsure, watch YouTube videos about Apple, or go to a near-by Apple Store and hold and use an iPhone and make your decision.

Please note that I’m not at all in anyway biased or associated with Apple, I’m just an Apple Fan. Please do not consider this as a biased article, I just want to help people discover iOS and show them about it. This article is not made to make fun of other OS’. This is just a friendly article :).

Thank you so much for reading this article, I really appreciate it! Get in touch with me on whatsapp!, or find me on my iphone :).
See you soon!

Alliance Old Boys' Club On point to their “ambulance” rescue to their future own!

A few days ago, this writer highlighted a story about a boy named Paul Mwanzia who had scored 408 marks but had not yet joined high school. The young man had been admitted to Alliance High School but due to the nature of his background, he could not join the school.


The boy failed to join the prestigious institution and fulfil his dreams but his dad can't afford the high fees at the National School. The boy now has a reason to smile as the story was picked up on Twitter and made it to well wishers.

He had appealed to any well wishers out there to intervene and help him go to Alliance High School. Thanks to the story, the young man can now continue with his education at the institution.

Alliance Old Boys' Club which is made up of former students of the school, has agreed to help the young man. They took him to school and shared the amazing photos of the boy in uniform at the school.

There are more stories out there of young men and women who cannot join form one because of their backgrounds. We urge anyone close to them to highlight their story as this could also happen to them.
