7 Things That Totally Confused iPhone Users


Switching from Android to iPhone

I have been using Android phone for a long time and am very used to the Android platform, last month at my friends’ persuasion, I bought an iPhone 5S. However, I found a lot of things that sucks on iPhone compared with Android.

Note that this is my personal opinion and don’t mean to hurt Apple iPhone or other Apple products. I just want to share these problems with you, besides, there are pros and cons to both.

Well, let’s go to the main topic! Some solutions are found to certain problems. Hope the solutions worked for you and helped you out of confusion.

No 1: The overall lack of a visible filesystem

This causes a lot inconvenience on managing our files on iPhone.

Solution: Use professional iOS file management program designed by 3rd party. Maybe you can say that iTunes can do a lot for you, but for me, there is still inconvenience such as I can’t copy/cut music and more other files from phone to PC or vice versa. After a long time searching on the internet, I found a tool called iPhone 5 Transfer and it cost me extra $29.95 to manage my iPhone 5S files.

No 2: The “Closed” on App Store


If you want to get an App, you have to go through Apple App Store and Apple decides all, which apps go in, which can be installed and downloaded, taking a cut of all sales.

On the contrary, the Android platform doesn’t have one particular app store, nor does Google say on what you can or cannot install and doesn’t take a cut of your sales.

Solution: In certain cases, you can build HTML5 app to get around the App Store restriction. With a manifest document, iPhones users are allowed to download apps directly without going through the App Store. However, just as why I said “in certain cases”, an HTML5 app can’t do everything that true native apps can.

No 3: Keyboard is more stupid, you can’t type fast

Without a lot of practice like me, you can’t type fast on iPhone keyboard. I also trigger the wrong one when typing. This is really so bitchy especially when chatting with more than one friend.

Solution: It is said that iOS 8 will be coming with new feature QuickType. Hope this will solve the problem and save us who are in a blind.

No 4: Customization is limited without jailbreak

Say, after iOS 7 rolled out, you may be able to add a wallpaper to your iPhone desktop. But there is not much you can do to tweak your iPhone to exactly how you like it.

No 5: I am locked with AT&T

The tethering on Android devices is better off than what AT&T is offering on the iPhone. In the States, you need to pay $20 per month to access the privilege of tethering your iPhone data connection to a computer.

No 6: iPhone is Likely to be stuck on Recovery Mode at iOS Update

After I got my iPhone 5S, I updated it to the newest iOS 7.1.2. I used to update my phone to the newest system, thus, though I know that iOS 8 is coming soon, I still updated it to iOS 7.1.2. The disaster is what most users come across when updating their iOS – my iPhone stuck on iOS 7.1.2 updating screen and didn’t go further. It is stuck on the screen that a white arrow pointing to the iTunes logo. My friend told me that it is the Recovery Mode screen which is a failsafe on updating or restoring.

Solution: A nearly perfect freeware called ReiBoot solved this question without any effort. I got it when I search the internet and someone recommended it to me.

No 7: Hard to find a system cleaning tool

On my Android, I can get aplenty programs which are used to cleaning system and speed up iPhone by removing junk files. Examples are: Android System Cleaner, Clean Master Phone Boost, Clean Master Phone Boost, etc. all can be downloaded from Google Play. However, I can’t find such a similar tool from App Store. If anyone knows any, please tell me. Thank you in advance.

Solution: Searching on google, there is still a few such tools used to optimize iPhone performance. One is    Free iPhone Care, the other is iPhone Care Pro. The former is a total freeware with limited functions, the latter is paid, likely the pro version of the former. Both can be downloaded from CNET.
