I got hooked on the Apple ecosystem and don’t know what to do about it

All Apple products are closely related to each other and form a single ecosystem. I think that many of our readers are aware that you can copy text on an iPhone and paste on a tablet, and a MacBook can be unlocked from an Apple Watch. And no other company provides collaborative functionality on this scale. Having used apple gadgets for a long time, a person can no longer refuse it, thereby being hooked by the company and no longer wants to buy anything else for himself. I got hooked on Cupertin’s needle not so long ago, and I would even be glad to get off it, but it does not come out.

I dream of giving up Apple, but I’m afraid it’s impossible.

I remember how I used to go to a store with Apple appliances and spend an hour looking at all the gadgets that were on the counter. Yes, I had an iPhone, but I could only dream of an Apple Watch, iPad or Mac. If many users really believe that Xiaomi makes the best devices and drive with their products with pleasure, then I said so only because of the lack of funds for everything except the new iPhone.

Global changes came in 2020. There is money on the account. Then I went to the official Apple website and bought almost everything: MacBook, new iPhone, Apple Watch, iPad, AirPods, Apple Pencil. Then different subscriptions were used: Apple Music, Apple TV +, Apple Arcade and the like. Actually, that’s how I ended up at AppleInsider.ru.

A lot has changed since then. I quickly got used to a lot of equipment in the house. The first thing I did was set out clear tasks for each gadget. On the iPad we edit photos, play games, watch movies. We only work on the poppy. And further downward. After almost two years, I realized that even the apple has flaws. We will talk about them today.

What is better iPhone or Android

After almost 9 years of using the iPhone, I can safely say – of course, Android is cooler. Joke. In fact, not everything is so simple. The first thing I miss about the iPhone is the customization space. The iOS icons and interface are the best on the market, but they get bored very quickly. The standard lock screen cannot be changed in any way, interactive widgets on iphone I only dream. Just look at what they indulge! For me, this is an unrealizable dream.

I love the iPhone. But don’t mind trying other phones as well.

Plus, the iPhone gets boring quickly. What about Android devices? It seems that the phrase “Anarchy is the mother of order”, I understood only now. I don’t want a phone with chopped edges, but there’s nothing to do. Don’t like that yellow photo on iphone, I want to flip phone – will have to put up. And there are a lot of such nuances: arrangement of cameras, bangs, dimensions, arrangement of buttons, aluminum body – this is only a small part of them.

If we remove all the lyrics and leave the dry facts, I would note the following from them:

  • Always On Display.
  • Split View mode.
  • Reversible charging.
  • A drop instead of a bang on the camera.
  • The lack of a foldable smartphone in the lineup.

Disadvantages of Apple Watch

Again, in conjunction with an iPhone, either Apple Watch, or nothing. Want a round clock instead of a square one? Will not work. We will not take into account the Mi Band and the old Samsung watches.

Yes, they can be connected to the iPhone, but then you won’t get around problems, because some functions simply won’t work. For example, with the Galaxy Watch 3, you cannot reply to messages from instant messengers, you can only view them. Plus, paid watch faces are not available in conjunction with the iPhone.

I, as a doctor, try to keep an eye on new health monitoring features in smartwatches. Yes, Apple Watch can measure the level of oxygen in the blood, take an ECG, have a heart rate monitorbut you generally have seen Samsung Galaxy Watch 4?

Everyone knows how to take an ECG. Try to measure the pressure.

This watch has learned to measure blood pressure! Yes, calibration is needed almost every day, but don’t give a damn, right? Constant monitoring of blood pressure is the top! I would be glad to try, but I cannot, since I am in slavery. Who will unblock the Mac?

Cons of AirPods 2

You only know how annoying AirPods are sometimes.

Believe me, AirPods have a lot of disadvantages. Recently, my colleague, author of AppleInsider.ru, Ivan Gerasimov, told me that he was pissed off by Apple headphones. In the article, he described in detail all the shortcomings and told how to put up with them. I will briefly give my list of grievances:

  • Lack of moisture protection.
  • Soiled and slippery body.
  • Knocking on the earpiece instead of pressing a button.
  • Disgusting microphones.

Believe it or not, I would gladly take the same Bowers and Wilkins, but would I trade seamless connection between iPad, Mac and iPhone? Never. It often happens that you need to quickly switch from one device to another, and AirPods are second to none. Add to that a handy charging widget. Basically, Apple simply leaves us no choice.

As for the MacBook and iPad, their owners must clearly understand why they are making these devices for themselves. Yes, the convenience of a Mac with other devices is cool, but if you are going to play on a laptop at least occasionally, don’t even look this way. Or get a second laptop.

Macs and iPads are usually bought with clear goals. It is impossible to say so about other devices.

iPad is the only normal tablet in general. Anyone who denies this is just a fool. Apple is great in this regard. With the release of iPadOS, they have clearly separated all the functions of the phone and tablet. Now the iPad is not just an enlarged phone, it is a little more. At least because of Split View.

As a result, it turns out that no matter how we want to get rid of Apple technology, nothing will come of it. These gadgets work too well together. They complement each other like Yin-Yang.
