I always had android phones but I am getting tired of not having updates, no internal space, and bad battery consistency. I am thinking of buying my first iPhone. I have been a very happy Mac user since I changed from Windows (15" MBP 2013). The hardware is exceptional and worth every penny. The software has grown on me and I like its robustness. Are there any real-life advantages in having an all Apple ecosystem? Funnily enough, I do not have any Google Play purchases because I never bought any apps from it, but I have a few from my old iPad (1st Gen!) that I do not use anymore. I found iPhone prices in the past to be ridiculous but now I guess everyone is following Apple (see Pixel 3). So, should I consider the move and what should I focus on? Is the XR a good starting point?
