My days of fiddling with devices just to make them work the way I need are over. Take a new Apple device out of the box and everything is right where you expect it to be. That’s not the case with Android. Back in the day I didn’t mind fiddling with a new device or OS update. I’d spend hours arranging things right where I wanted them. Dragging apps to my preferred place, tweaking settings so everything was just like I wanted.
Then I thought about it for a while and realized I was tired of making phones and tablets work the way I wanted. I just wanted to pick up a device and do what I needed to do. I didn’t want to waste time finding the app I use every day, and I didn’t want to learn the OS all over again. That’s when I switched to iOS and I’ve never looked back since.
Think about it. Getting a new Android phone or tablet is like carefully organizing your office and coming in one morning to find all your stuff in different places. It’s like someone came in and moved everything around to make it difficult to find.
You wouldn’t tolerate such shenanigans so why should you stand for it on the device you use constantly? Installing a new version of the mobile OS or getting a new device should provide a familiar setting, not make you fiddle with it just to get it back like the old one.
My fiddling days are over, and iOS respects that.
