I'm not new, but I owned an Android (two, actually!) for a couple of years, and so I've gone back and forth.
You can expect:
1. A more stable O/S.
2. A more responsive touchscreen.
3. An operating system that is harder to junk up and kill battery life on.
Those are the good parts.
If you like to fiddle with it, you'll like it less.
If you want to put the non-iTunes music you own onto it, you'll either have to sync your music library with your computer, or pay $25/year for iTunes Match for your library to go across the system via the cloud, or use an app like gMusic to stream music from your cloud-based Google Play Music library.
(Me, I have mainly iTunes music, but also use gMusic to stream extra stuff. I don't like having my iPhone synced with any computer.)
Apple has a locked down system because that makes it more secure and stable. This _works_, but it can be a little annoying.
Before iOS 5, with iCloud, I thought it was too annoying to stay with. Post-iOS 5, and now especially with iOS 7, I think it's great. It's a set of trade-offs I'm very willing to make.
(Also, I love being able to go to the Apple Store to get my phone or tablet fixed at cost. If I drop my phone in the lake, I can get it replaced for cost (~250); or for the AppleCare+ deductible (used to be $49, now is $79), if I pay $99 up front. (I do. Some don't like to.))
