Whatever your operating system of choice, you’ve probably realized the iOS vs. Android debate is a pretty big one in some corners of the internet. Android fans assume some pretty insulting things about iPhone users, and iPhone fans make some pretty unflattering statements about Android users. Each side thinks the other has made the wrong choice.
But petty arguments aside, there are some pretty good reasons to consider each mobile operating system, which means despite what some Android devotees may think, there are some solid reasons to buy an iPhone. There are also some not-so-great reasons. And some people do choose the iPhone because they fall for some outdated myths about iOS, or because they make erroneous assumptions about how Apple’s operating system compares to Google’s.
Nevertheless, there are a lot of reasons why people choose a phone from Apple over a device from one of the many manufacturers creating Android phones. Want to know the real reasons why some people buy iPhones instead of Android phones? Read on to check out some of the more popular reasons for going with a phone from Apple instead of one from a top Android manufacturer. You just might be surprised.
1. They like iOS better than Android
Though certain diehard Android fans can’t imagine it, some people really like iOS. In fact, there are even some people who have tried both mobile operating systems and still like iOS better than Android. Maybe it’s Apple’s interface and design that draws them in. Perhaps they like how straightforward it is to get an iPhone working right out of the box, or that they don’t need to take the time to customize a new phone extensively. Maybe they like features like Siri or are fans of some of the apps that come preinstalled on a new iPhone. Some people think Android is a superior operating system, and others like iOS better.
