It should, unless you have an Apple Watch.

Have you decided if your going to use iCloud?

Wow. Your already to go, I know the feeling.

Is it your first iPhone?

Yes, and with any device I adapt once
knowing correct settings, as of now so many in the device I read about.

Simply put, MY max comes the 22nd. I am an ex-android samsung owner and needing to know does the screen Wake upon notifications? I am a fast acclimater to devices but any answer will do.
Yes. It does. I had a Facebook notification earlier, and my screen definitely woke for it.

You can set each App’s Notifications individually to wake up the phone or not.

IOS added some customisation to Notifications a couple of IOS updates ago.

Good luck.

Coming from android, iOS will feel like a prison. So be prepared for that. If you get frustrated with its limitations just toss the iPhone in a drawer and come back to it when you've cooled off. It took me 3 months of in the drawer/out of the drawer usage (tossing it in there in disgust) until it didn't bug me so much. If you hang in there long enough, you'll get used to its weirdness and it won't seem so bad eventually.
But I'd never want to "discover iOS" ever again. Once in a lifetime is enough.

now you have the right insight. My need for edge burning speed is done. I want what works. And no jailbreaking included.

My wife is average people who are not techie. When she had iPhone, she does not even know what iMessage is and she doesn’t realize iMessage was on.

She rocks on Android phone just fine. Last year, I brought her iPhone XR as gift, she returned it and kept her Android phone.

You don’t need to be techie to use Android. It is just as easy to use as iPhone. To some extend, iPhone is much harder to use than Android. Getting files out, downloading attachments, plug in USB devices etc are way easier on Android side.

I was a prior samsung tech with chat support, and I need no evidence, and you might consider android if not happy with iphone.

none for me, as OP said. 10 is a joke. go to reddit and see them drop like flies. I got out when I could. sorry you dont see it.

I am just saying. Go through multiple iPhone for a functional one is not unusual. It happens for any mess produced stuffs.

I go through phases. I will use iPhone for a while then go back to Android. My max time with iPhone was like half month, then stayed with Android for like 7 months, then switched back to iPhone for like other half month.

I need switch to iPhone to appreciate how good Android is.

Android is cool, iOS is ahead big time with just stability and updates. Plus Samsung’s one UI is the worse skinned android phones out easily. Ugly looking and slows down in a couple months. You get to enjoy updates 8 months after google releases them. Have fun with your “freedom” on a Samsung device.

At least with apple you go right to the store and walk out with new phone. How’s Samsung’s customer service?

I don’t know. I never own Samsung? All my Android devices has been fantastic and without issue?

My Android phone did not slow down and feature wise, iOS is way behind

Without access to apple ecosystem, androids “freedom” feels restrictive.

Sorry about that, I just hate when people bash either OS. I’ve used both for a long time and I think they are both great but I just much prefer iOS. Enjoy your max though!

And it is not that I don’t have iPhone. I just don’t buy it at full price. I am currently carrying iPhone 7 along with my daily driver, Huawei P30. And this refurbished iPhone 7 only cost about 379 tax included. This is how much I value iPhone. Not paying $1000 or more for iPhone, it is so overpriced.
