With the introduction of the 2022 iPhone 14 series, possibly in six weeks, Apple is taking the opportunity to plant a seed in the minds of Android users. A video released today by the Cupertino crew is titled “Switching to iPhone. All your questions answered.”
The video opens with the majestic front door of the Apple Store in Barcelona, Spain. The video’s host (an Apple Genius) answers some of the most sought-after questions from Android users about switching to iOS and iPhone. “It’s a simple, easy process,” the host says. And as someone who has switched back and forth over the years, this writer should agree.

Another question is, “If I switch to iPhone, will it hold up over time?” Our host says “sure” because the iPhone is durable and can withstand dust, spills and splashes. She also brings up battery life, which is nothing short of spectacular, especially with the iPhone 13 Pro Max. In our testing, the iPhone 13 Pro Max streamed 10 hours and 23 minutes of video, browsed the web for 18 hours and 52 minutes, and played 3D games for 10 hours and 29 minutes before it ran out of battery.
The next question is, “If I switch to iPhone, will it get the latest updates?” The answer is that the iPhone comes with the latest version of the operating system right out of the box. “This is another important thing Android users would love to have about owning an iPhone,” the host says. And to show how long Apple has been supporting older models, she notes that the iPhone 6s, released in 2015, still received iOS 15.
Try not to get caught up in the excitement that comes with the unveiling of a new phone
When it comes to protecting personal information, Apple says that “the iPhone was built from the ground up to protect your privacy and give you control over your information.” And if you need support from Apple to use your new device, the video says Apple is there so you can chat or iMessage with a real member of the company’s support staff without the Apple employee trying the old upsell.
Not only is the Tips app available to help you use the phone, but you can also go to an Apple Store and talk to the staff, even if you have yet to buy one.
