Apple is now 6 years lagging behind the world, e.g. 5G modem in 2025. No break-through in house apps, e.g. still the same Contacts app of 5 years ago. Poor HomeKit & Siri than Google Home & Assistant. Poor ergonomic screen design, you have to press buttons with your fingers flying to every corner of the screen to do simple tasks, the bigger the screen, the longer distance your fingers need to travel.
my friend told me that his iPhone 6s is as fast as his son’s iPhone X. I asked him how come. He said it’s because he never updates the iOS and thus able to retain the original speed. Comparing to my iPhone 6 Plus with the current iOS version, his iPhone 6s runs like the Flash. And, he keeps the lovely 32-bit games which I have to forget because there’s no more 32-bit version.
frankly, my kids are using latest iPhone versions. But I find nowhere near to upgrade mine. Apple, do you know your problems?
Google Home Hub (with Google Assistant) is multi-user and instantly recognise the user voice and switch to that user profile. E.g. a family of six can ask “hey google who am I?” And the Google Home Hub can instantly response “You name is whoeverasking”.
It can play your music library, YouTube Recommanded, Spotify, Google Photos of the user asking, instantly, at the volume you commanded, and control the lighting, turning on/off fans and aircond as setup from Google Home app, all by voice.
Google Home also sync setting changes from Apple HomeKit for wherever changes, but not vice versa. That’s Apple HomeKit’s problem.
