Before we begin, I want to point out that the code of conduct applies to this post and all others on DEV. I don't expect that anyone will be particularly horrible, but I do know that many folks can get quite proud of their #gear choices.
On to the topic at hand: Should I jump ship to iOS?
I've been an Android user since Gingerbread was released, so I'm quite deeply entrenched into the ecosystem. But I feel like the lack of immidiate update support for Android, and the lack of care for privacy is really turning me off from the OS.
I'm currently using an Honor device (you care about privacy and bought a Huawei device?) and the hardware is amazing, but the base OS is terrible.
I know that I could totally buy a device which actually allows me to unlock the bootloader (Huawei have locked all of their devices down), and flash something like LineageOS onto it. In fact, until I bought my current device, this is exactly what I used to to - stock Android (as in the AOSP) is good, LineageOS with root is better, and most vendor specific builds of Android are terrible.
Security updates for Android, as some folks know, can take months (if not years) to be released for devices. And a lot of users are often left running insecure, outdated versions of the OS simply because the hardware vendors want to sell you the latest and greatest rather than support a device which is less then 9 months old - and the less said about companies like WileyFox the better.
I'm also totally aware thst iOS devices tend to become a lot less useful after 2-3 years of use, and that they're not as open as Android devices can be. I do have PC hardware which runs MacOS, Linux distros and Windows, so I'm not averse to running different OSs.
I'm really interested to hear the experiences of folks who have jumped ship (either way), and folks who have tried out both.
So fellow DEV readers, help me out. Should I jump ship? Or what are some of the things that I should be considering with reference to jumping over?
