    I'm trying to convince my wife to buy an iPhone when she upgrades in May. If she gets one our four member family (me, her, and our two kids ages 19 and 21) will all have iPhones. She is using an Android right now. I need help convincing her that an all iPhone family is a happier entity. She's not tech savvy and doesn't understand Apple product continuity. How might I persuade her to buy an iPhone?

    Isn't the 3 other members of her family using them convincing enough?

    Trying to convince her to get something she doesn't want will result in you spending your nights on the sofa with Fido.

    If the woman is happy with her Android device leave her be.

    I think that whatever phone she ultimately ends up wanting, that's the one she should have.

    Just show her the limitations of Android. But... if she doesn't care about the device, it would be cheaper to get an Android, and she will get what she wants.

    Sorry I won't engage. This reminds me too much of "tell me why iPhone is better than android"

    Honestly, I feel like if you need to "convince her" It isn't worth it. Let her pick what she wants and be happy, even if its not what YOU want her to get.

    Let her know how you could use FaceTime call (that's voice call, and video call) to communicate with her for free using data only.
    Let her know how you could easily share calendars entries and be on the same page.
    Let her know how you could text each other for free over data. Tell her that apps she use most are snappier on iPhone than on android even google apps are better design and polished on the iPhone.
    If privacy is not much of a concern, tell her you can share locations position in real time.
    Tell her to at least give it a try, and she doesn't really like it, then she can change it back to whatever she likes sooner or later.
    Good luck.

    Why do you care? It's her device. Maybe the three of you should change to match her device. That'd produce the same family of four on a single platform you're concerned with. It's your concern so you should facilitate it.

    Maybe her holding out is a subtle indication that there's trouble in paradise?

    No persuading. One time I walked in the Apple Store (5), and just recently I pulled into the Verizon Store (iPhone 6). Next step was setup and hand to wife.

    That sounds mean, unless she is the non tech savvy type and just uses what ever phone she's given.

    Is she willing to consider buying an iPhone? If she is, maybe a visit to the Apple Store is in order (if you have one close by). If she isn't willing to consider switching there is nothing you or anyone else can do.

    The best selling point for you, let her know that she can have a shared "Family" Reminders List. Show her how to create a Reminder, then watch, in pain, your To-Do List become flooded without mercy.

    A lot of ppl kind of went way off base here. He didn't ask for the opinion of others or what another would do in his shoes, but simply how he could convince his wife.
    I am very family oriented and I love that both my husband and I have the iPhone 6. Next up will be our oldest daughter.
    But OP I would maybe sit her down, gran one of your children, a Mac (if applicable) and 'show' her how continuity works. The benefits of iMessage and FaceTime. Stuff like that. If there's something that appeals to her like shopping in any form, show her the tons of apps that can help with that, not supported on android. You can also surprise her with one and ask her to give it a shot for two weeks and if she doesn't like it, exchange it out.
    Hope it works out!
