Hey, after 15ys Apple only I need to upgrade my ecosystem or to leave it completely. Tell me YOUR fav benefits of Apple integrations within the ecosystem. iMessage & SMS integration: All messages are synced over all devices, no need to have additional apps installed, no switching between SMS and iMessages. Writing on travel from iPhone, when working on Mac, on the couch from iPad, in business meetings decent from Watch with the possibilty to answer. Even there's no matter to think about the app you have to use to reach somebody. Just write - it'll reach them. I have several 2FA services with SMS, no need to worry about "l" (small L), "I" (upper i), just copy/paste from Messages app - or with newer versions it's mostly automatically added. --Leaving Apple: Messages on Android is even great and provides a webinterface to read/wrtie messages. It's not that smooth like Apple but you can use additional apps like Notifi or Zorin connect, KDEConnect or GConnect to make it as smooth. Facetime / Calling: No worries about missing calls - it doesn't matter if phone is in silent mode or not. In silent mode my calls are getting displayed on every device I currently use, I can answer the call on my Mac without looking for my Phone which won't interrupt me as I would need to look for it. My focus can still remain on my work. When it's not on silent mode it still won't ring all time for any notification when Watch is active. Even it doesn't matter if it's a regular cell call or Facetime video/audio - just call. --Leaving Apple: In fact I only found till yet solutions to notify about incoming calls but no smooth way to answer them. Only in Dex mode (Desktop mode of Samsung) it seems to be possibility. Unlock Watch: I love to "Unlock with Watch" - typing my password is pain so I love to just press any key on the keyboard and to have a desktop present. It's really a great feature. --Leaving Apple: Only some solutions with Proximity that aren't that secure like the native Way. So I would avoid to use this feature. Apple Pay: I love to pay with Apple Watch. Since several years I can leave my pocket home - just going out with Watch and have everything I need to. --Leaving Apple: GPay works even the same way and is supported by my bank. So no worry here. So this are my key features and I think there are two possibilities to switch: - Linux and Android as a workstation with a still dedicated mobile phone and sync like Apple's ecosystem. Take a look on KDEConnect, GConnect or Zorin. - Use a mobile phone as a Desktop system, like Dex on Samsung or EasyProjection on Huawei.
