Apple used to be a great, innovative company. But lately, it's filling its coffers with money raked in from selling folks on "new" and "unique" features that have been blatantly ripped off from Android.
With a phablet iPhone and a rushed-out smartwatch, Apple is banking on stealing a few users away from the Android ecosystem. Tim Cook must've been thinking to himself, "They'll come in droves now that our flagship phone isn't comically tiny any more," as the company has recently posted a guide on switching from Android to iOS.
Well, that's quite nice of them, right? Wrong. With "helpful" tips such as "Move (photos and videos) to your iPhone using an app or a computer with iTunes" and "Go to the App Store, search for the apps you have now, and install them," their idea of easy ecosystem switching seems to be Copy and Paste.
Ironically, Android users are quite familiar with the ability to plug a phone into a computer and copy stuff over. Because unlike iOS, Android doesn't obfuscate its folder structures or require clunky software to interact with a computer.
So if you've recently made the switch from Android to Apple, well...good luck. In the meantime, we'll be right here showing you how to get iOS 11's features today.
