Most manufacturers like to wrap you in their vines, making it hard for you to switch to the competition, but Apple is especially known for this. After making a career out of creating Android-focused content, I, too, seem to have fallen into Apple’s trap. Hello, I am Edgar, and I am having a hard time leaving the Apple ecosystem.

Oddly enough, it wasn’t because of iMessage, which I honestly don’t really care much for. It also isn’t because of other things people seem to love iPhones for. I can get excellent build quality, timely updates, speedy performance, and all that great stuff from many of the best Android phones. It’s Apple’s Apple Card and a few other Apple-exclusive features that ended up really locking me in!
