iOS Notifications

Even as a loyal Android user for over a decade, I have to admit that Apple’s iPhone has become increasingly attractive over the past few years. There’s something to be said about the seamless integration between devices like the iPhone and Apple Watch and the company’s privacy-first approach to iOS, which I desperately tried to replicate by installing GrapheneOS on my Pixel last year.

These half-measures kept me content on Android, but a part of me still wondered if the grass was greener on the other side. So when Apple released the iPhone 15 with USB-C, there was nothing holding me back — on paper — and I finally decided to make the switch.
