Apple today shared a new video that's aimed at Android users who are considering a switch over to an iPhone. The video walks through common questions that switchers might have, including transferring contacts, photos, and messages, trade-ins, long-term updates, and more.


It also covers the durability of the ‌iPhone‌ such as water resistance, battery life, reliability of the iOS operating system, security, and privacy protections for personal data.

Apple's four-minute video on switching to an ‌iPhone‌ is basically a condensed version of its dedicated "Switch to iPhone" website that walks through everything smartphone users need to know about upgrading to an ‌iPhone‌. Apple also maintains a dedicated "Move to iOS" Android app that makes it easy to transfer data.

Someone should ask them "can I sideload third party apps like on my Android?" See the Apple employees freeze up in panic.
"iPhone was designed to be secure. With nearly 2 million apps available in the App Store, we know you'll find the perfect apps for you."

If anyone out there is watching this and actually considering the switch, it may be tough at first but it’ll be the best decision you have ever made! ?
I agree. Made this decision back in 2008. Never looked back and had any regrets. Zero Regrets!
