5 things that will have to be reconciled in the transition from Android to iOS
Sometimes the owners get tired of Android lag, viruses and instability and realize that it was the appropriate time for transfer thinking about the possibility of transfer, at least temporarily, on Android. Browsers Zoom told about what you need to prepare for the future owner of the smartphone with a “green robot”.
From this material you will learn what will have to go to those who are planning to change the “green robot” on the iPhone. Restrictions when installing and configuring programs, long sync and primitive energy efficiency in the iOS world is not all so smoothly as it seems at first.
1. No freedom
To download files on an Android device, it is sufficient to have at hand a microUSB cable and a computer. Then, on a smartphone copied the whole content of any type, in any folder, in any quantity. Owners of the iPhone in the chain POPs up another element on iTunes. People who are accustomed to instant copying of files (basic with flash), it will be difficult to reconcile with the rather cumbersome process of synchronization in iOS.
ITunes has many advantages (e.g., the perfect ordering of the media), but disadvantages too. Main of them — the constant demands for updates and hours of hovering mode is the third step of the seven”. In addition, you need to be extremely attentive and cautious clicking on any checkbox in the main app: with one click you can permanently leave music.
2. No NFC
The module NFC (Near Field Communication) has been introduced to Android smartphones in 2012, and the iPhone appeared only in 2014. Moreover, the word “appeared” quite objectively reflects the situation: the chip is, but he can only work for payment system, Apple Pay, which has not yet reached Russia (not expected until the end of the year). If the Android device that you can pay with your smartphone and anywhere to watch the information about the commuting, the iPhone’s NFC is only the count in the list of characteristics.
3. No power saving
Android Lollipop has officially been added to the energy savings — previously, it was found only in the proprietary interfaces of individual producers. Upon reaching the 15% charge (or you can choose from a menu at any time), the device automatically offers to switch to gentle to battery mode. Design is orange, all the animation disappears (even shadows from the icons), decreases the brightness of the backlight and decreases the load on the GPU. In this mode, the Android smartphone live several hours longer than in normal use. The difference is noticeable and in standby mode on Android Lollipop in 8 hours takes 4% battery for 24 hours — 12 %, 48 hours — 24% (test passed on the Nexus 5). On Android 6.0 Marshmallow the same Nexus 5 is discharged just 9% for 48 hours.
In the Apple for a long time did not pay attention to energy saving in iOS: previously, users could not even see what their gadget spend resources of the battery. In iOS 8 statistics on applications have been added, and in iOS 9 the power saving mode. However, activation of this mode is able to add a maximum of an hour to the normal time of Autonomous work iOS device. In Android, the figure is definitely higher, so moving to the iPhone, get ready to constantly carry a charger or external battery.
4. No choice
In Android for each file type you can assign to your application. Tolerance even extends to the browser, though, it would seem that in Google the first thing was to make Chrome the most secure facility of all mobile OS. But the Corporation did the opposite: want — Chrome, Opera, Mozilla.
IOS Chrome will open by default, only applications developed by Google. In all other cases, clicking the link redirects in Safari. For those who have all bookmarks stored in Chrome, this injustice will seem significant: these users will have to “live” on two browsers. With other programs everything is exactly the same: there is no alternative gallery, music player, or email client that would open instead of standard Mail. The limitations of iOS even touch third party keyboards. From September 2014 alternative keypad available in the App Store, but entering the password always comes out built-in keyboard.
5. No applications without a pedigree
In Android third-party programs installed after the basic unlock available right from the menu: put a checkmark in the “allow unfamiliar sources”. In the file .apk can be anything, and you are responsible for the consequences, but the important fact — Google allows you to install applications downloaded from any source.
In iOS there is no such option shall be acquainted with the word “jailbreak” or to realize that the App Store is a retailer-monopolist in the world of software for Apple.
