According to multiple reports and surveys, Android users are now more likely to switch to using an iPhone than ever before…
A report indicates that 25% of US users are already considering switching to iPhone, and another survey indicates that Android is losing more and more users, as the beloved operating system has gone from 77.32% market share to 69.74% in just four years, of course, thanks when switching to iOS (iPhone). In fact, Apple even made a special “Switch to iPhone” video that answers frequently asked questions and prepares Android users to upgrade to iPhone 13 and iPhone 14. All that said, why is 2022 the year so many Android users should jump ship? As you can imagine, there’s no one-word answer, because Apple has been making reliable and attractive phones for ages now, which means that if some Android users ever wanted to change, they could have do it a long time ago.
So let’s take a look at what might be causing Android users to switch to iPhone and iOS and answer the most important question, whether Android users should really consider an iPhone because of iOS 16 and iOS. ‘iPhone 14 or wait for the iPhone 15 series, which (spoiler) is what I plan to do…
Apple’s plan to attract Android users involves lots of iPhones, customizable and reliable software and great marketing
In a nutshell, Apple has always had a plan to turn Android users into “Apple sheep”, as Android users like to call it. All in all, it involves Apple’s unparalleled marketing, Cupertino’s near-flawless reputation for building reliable phones, and best-in-class customer service.
What will help Apple convert Android users in 2022-2023
- The amazing new customization features that come with iOS 16. Apple will finally allow you to make your iPhone truly personal – you know, like an Android phone. iOS 16’s lock screen will now be more customizable than that of an Android phone; you also get live wallpapers, perhaps the best implementation of interactive widgets we’ve ever seen; fonts. Besides that, iOS 16 will let you do some smart stuff like find duplicate photos easily, batch edit photos, unsend iMessage and even use iPhone as a Mac webcam…
- In terms of hardware, Apple is readying its most aggressive lineup of iPhones ever, bucking the trend of bigger phones with the iPhone 14 Max replacing the iPhone mini; high resolution cameras (which will play an important marketing role) and next-level performance thanks to a new cooling solution (which Android has had for ages)
- Despite the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max expected to see a price jump, some reports indicate that people are more willing to spend money on a flagship.
- At $800-900 and in the world of $1,200 Android flagship phones, the vanilla iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Max should be surprisingly affordable, but Apple also holds a major wildcard against the iPhone 13, which is expected to drop in price. for just $700, which could revive interest in this excellent phone
iPhone 14 Pro price hike: For a while Apple had to play the villain before it became the hero
Long term planning.
One thing I’d like to expand on is “the pricing situation” around the upcoming iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Max, iPhone 14 Pro, and iPhone 14 Pro Max… You see, when the iPhone X launched in 2017 to what seemed like a crazy price of $1,000, people thought Tim Cook & Co had gone crazy. The price of the iPhone X has been mocked all over the internet and even on national television in the United States.
However, many were unaware (including me at the time) that by releasing a $1,000 iPhone in 2017 (when the most expensive flagship phones cost no more than $800), Apple agreed a ton of wiggle room and time to improve what would become the iPhone Pro, without increasing its price. Do you see my point? The iPhone X had to come out and look and be overpriced in order to ease users into what was to come.
That’s why, right now, Samsung, Xiaomi and Huawei are selling high-end Android flagship phones at higher prices than Apple, which was unthinkable a few years ago. Current iPhone prices, on the other hand, seem “normal” because the iPhone X successors have never really changed in price since 2017, which is five years ago.
But right now, with Apple poised to finally raise iPhone prices, that wiggle room created in 2017 will allow Cupertino to say, “Hey, listen… We haven’t changed the price. premium iPhone for ages. . Also look at Samsung! The most expensive iPhone 14 Pro Max will only match the price of the Galaxy S22 Ultra!”. And they won’t be wrong.
Should Android users really consider an iPhone because of iOS 16 and iPhone 14 or should they wait for the first USB-C iPhone?
Go for it! I’m waiting for iPhone 15.
And we come to the one practical question that really matters… Should you get a new iPhone 14 model now or are you better off waiting for the next-gen iPhone? This question is painfully familiar, and many even find it unnecessary, and I can’t necessarily disagree.
That’s because new iPhones come out every 12 months, and if you want to wait for the next, newest, or best, you could be playing this game for ages. The situation is even trickier in the Android world where we get a few new phones practically every month.
That being said, as I hinted at the beginning of the story, this year there is no doubt in me! I’m not spending money on an iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Max, iPhone 14 Pro, or iPhone 14 Pro Max because of the iPhone 15 series. I’ll talk about it in a story coming out very soon, but in a nutshell:
- The iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Pro should finally (and I mean finally) switch from Lightning to USB-C, which is arguably the biggest reason why Android users might be willing to switch. iPhone
- The iPhone 15 Pro is said to finally bring a periscope zoom camera for long-range magnification, which is my favorite feature on my Google Pixel 6 Pro (by far)
- The iPhone 15 Pro is expected to be the first phone with a 3nm chipset that could take Apple’s already excellent performance and efficiency to the next level
Are you an Android user planning to switch to iPhone? Is 2022 the year, or are you with me on this one? Let me know!
