    Cool Big decision coming from Google.really could use your help.

    I have been using Google for all myself online I just recently bought an iPad pro 12.9 and really really love it I was looking at getting the new note 7 i've had all the notes and was pretty happy with him but I'm thinking about a change is it going to be a hard switch to go to the iPhone 7 if you could help me what is the pros and cons of heard the software with Apple is a lot easier. Anyway I could really use your help help in convincing me to switch to Apple. Again I can't think enough for all your help and hope everyone has a wonderful rest of the day I really enjoyed reading some of the articles on here.

    For me it's the fact that everything is integrated so well into the os. FaceTime, messages, email, calendar. They are all cohesive and just work very well. Battery life on my 6s plus was way better than the note I tried. The iPhone imo is just smooth as silk. I actually think the iPhone has a much more premium "feel" than the note did.

    Well, the iPhone is going to run just like your iPad. It's the same software. The only thing your iPad keeps that isn't on the iPhone yet is the multitasking. In the way of picture in picture and split screen. So if you have no problems with the iPad, you'll have no problems with the iPhone.

    I went from using iPhone for years to Android for years to currently using the iPhone 6s plus.

    In short, by the tone of your voice and the kindness in your speech, I know it's a stupid way to judge a person to recommend technology but I think you'll be very happy with the iPhone. As a matter of fact I think you'll be very happy with either one. But I'll still list some pros and cons for you.

    IPhone pros:
    1. Yes it's reliable. The hardware and the software both. While there maybe issues (and trust me there are) with some models, they usually tend to be negligible in numbers. For example ipads have faced various battery and bootloop issues. But these are minor things and Apple care is the best customer service so it won't be an issue at all even if something happens. So yes. Its reliable. Hardware and software both.

    2. Its durable. Hardware and software both. The hardware will stand the test of time because of the tough built. And software will stay smooth and running because of the amazing optimisation. Plus in terms of features like camera and 3D touch you'll be covered for at least 2 years.

    3. The software is very simple and ios 10 is going to make it even better. Ios 10 is very close to stock android (un-tweaked). Out of the box experience will be the same as ios is taking a lot of cues from android and vice versa.

    4. Miscellaneous; push notifications work better for me. Games work better for me. Theres no lag or hiccups. You get all the updates straight from Apple. You get a lot of options in terms of accessories.

    IPhone cons:

    1. All you can do if you get bored of it is to, change wallpaper. Well not anymore, I mean, you can add widgets. But there's an extremely limited library of widgets to choose from. Theres little to no room for customisation in IOS. So if you're into changing things up, you'll feel pretty caged in. Like you can't even move icons around the way you want. Anyways.

    2. Since the iPhone 7 isn't out yet I can't say what features it doesn't have. Some of the basic features which the iPhone 6s misses is fast charging, wireless charging, a 2k screen and additional gimmicky features which depends on you if you need them or not. But its important to note that other competitors are providing you with these features. And something like Quick Charge is almost necessary to have in this day and age. My iPhone 6s plus takes years to charge. Not really. But it feels like it though.

    3. Software isn't well thought out. Things like toggling data on and off take 3-4 steps in addition to finding the setting itself. The back button is on the top left corner which makes no sense. It's down at the bottom in safari, up in messages and settings. Software is inconsistent. Its the little things. Which will annoy you at first. But will get used to after a while. It doesn't seem like a mature software yet. Ios 10 will make it better. Don't get me wrong, it runs great! But it's not as thought out as android. At least you can change anything you disagree with in android to the way you think is right. Here, if Apple tells me to find the icon of settings, tap on it, scroll down, find mobile data, tap on it, find the mobile data toggle, tap on it, exit the app TO TURN ON DATA! Then I'll have to do it their way.

    Instead of just pulling down notification area and tapping once.

    4. Thats it.

    I don't think you'll be disappointed with any of the phones you get today. There isn't a learning curve to the iPhone. You'll adjust pretty quickly. So don't worry about it. Go for it! The bottom line is that change is good for a person! And I'm sure you'll enjoy making this one.

    If you're used to the iPP, the iPhone will be an easy transition. You'll love it!

    I believe that both systems have upsides and downsides. Which things did you like and dislike about iOS on the iPad?

    Both platforms have their pros and cons but what I love about Apple it's ecosystem across all devices. It's simplicity, and reliability. I'm sure Android has great pros as well, but if you purchased an iPad Pro, then get the iPhone. Maybe you'll love it more.

    I've owned four iPhones (a 3GS, two 5s, one 5S) and an iPad 2. Currently I'm using an iPhone 5 and the iPad 2. I've also run a LAN from soup to nuts, so tech is something with which I'm well-versed. In September of 2014 Apple started releasing miserably-poor updates for iOS, and that completely soured my opinion of whether or not they cared about their customers. It's caveat emptor for me about Apple stuff. Take a look at Forbe's posts by Gordon Kelly if you want some objective background on Apple's fast and spurious iOS releases.

    Apple even replaced my iPhone 5 while it was still in excellent condition, as they tried to solve dropping telephone call problems with it. Their attempted solution failed, and the problem persisted for a time after they replaced the phone. I told them the hardware was a non-issue, and it was instead the OS which was causing the problems.

    And ever since Apple forced the iOS 8 (and beyond) updates onto my iPad 2, the tablet's performance speed has been reduced by 1/2. It's slow to respond and sometimes even freezes. That's irresponsible and unacceptable to have a tablet computer which cost $900 new go south less than five years after it was purchased. Everyone had to go mine even more conflict minerals to produce the new tablet. It's still in perfect physical condition after having it around two years. At that time Apple had to replace before its second year (at their cost) with a new one when the case separated from a corner of the screen.

    This very day, I had to disable Siri on my iPhone 5 running iOS 9.3.5 to stop Bluetooth sound dropouts from happening on a brand new car with an MSRP of $38K+. I'm not the only one who had this problem, and it was iMore's fora users who provided that workaround as a solution.

    And my experience isn't a lot different with Apple's notebook computers. Two years ago, within a month of its purchase, my son's Macbook Air display started looking like it was intercepting signals from outerspace. The display was un-readable. Apple replaced it for free, but not until they made a first-year university student suffer through his first two weeks of classes without the computer everyone's expected to have. They declined to offer him a replacement on the spot, sending him away to wait and later return to pick up the repaired computer.

    All this made me wish I'd selected the Android OS instead of iOS and Apple devices. But because I'm significantly invested in Apple's hardware, I'll be putting that off until there's an easier way to migrate all my media away from iTunes, and synchronization of my contacts away from my current Outlook 2010/iTunes 12.x combination.
