With Verizon picking up the iPhone many Android users are debating on switching to Apple as well. Competition to keep the Android and other smartphones up to date on cell phone accessories and functionality may decrease now that Verizon is partnering up with Apple. This fact leaves consumers worried that their phones will not be a priority for the most up to date technology.
Another factor to consider is the advancement that Apple products have over other smartphones. Apple is continuously one of the first to produce a new update or create a new app that drastically changes the cell phone industry. The appeal of the social influences that the Apple brand has over the smartphone industry is another favorable quality. A majority of advances in the tech world revolves around Apple so switching over to the iPhone can appeal to those who are in touch with cell phone technology.
All positive considerations aside the best bet for an Android user is to wait out the next couple of months and see what changes happen in the tech industry. By then most likely all the bugs will be ironed out from the transition, and then consumers can make the best decision on whether or not to take the leap over to the iPhone.
