Why The Apple Ecosystem Is Starting To Sound Nice
I’m not going to lie; I’ve been a major critic of Apple over the last several years. That being said, one of my favorite phones as far as hardware is concerned was certainly my iPhone SE, I acquired from work a couple of years back. While I still am not a fan of iOS, I certainly did enjoy the form factor of that phone because I honestly have little hands. My anatomy aside, even though my love for Android has only grown in the last couple of years I’d like to do a deep dive into my own psyche a little bit and figure out why I can’t stop fantasizing about converting to the Apple ecosystem one day. So, let’s enter the world of Sergio Alberto Romero’s brain.
It goes without saying that the Apple Ecosystem is basically a really fun and enjoyable prison. Sure, you don’t get to go out and enjoy the world at large but you get to visit every other prison with the touch of a button. Ok, maybe not the best analogy here. The fact is, the Apple ecosystem is pretty closed off from third parties, but as a compensation award, you’re offered the ability to interact with all your Apple products in such a seamless way. Connecting your iPhone with your Macbook allows really seamless text messaging that just can’t be found on any other tech ecosystem. Sure, Samsung and Google try, but it just doesn’t come close to the seamless integration the Apple has truly perfected over the years. It doesn’t just stop at messaging either, whether you’re moving files across devices or using your iPad as a second screen for your Mac, the possibilities are endless when it comes to the interconnectivity of these Apple devices. All making the Android/Windows ecosystems seem archaic by modern standards.
I purposely bought a Pixel 3a because of the extended support I get from using a Pixel device, originally launched with Android 9 I’m now running Android 12 and will soon be running Android 12L. As for my Windows devices I’ve purchased both with Windows 7 and have since upgraded to Windows 8 and eventually Windows 10. Needless to say, I’m a big fan of extended software support. But with Windows 10 being left in the dust thanks to Microsoft’s shift towards Windows 11 and their ridiculous hardware…
