Cool New Iphone

So my work place upgraded me to a new Iphone 8 plus. (They are tired of asking about I-products and having me answer they should get Android like me)
I have used Android since there have been smart phones.

What do I need to know? I already find the lack of back button confusing so that will take getting used to.

Also what apps are a must have on the Apple side of life.

And last but not least what is cool in the land of Apple?

This question might be better answered in the Smartphone forum:

As for apps, most of the same apps that are available for Android have iOS versions as well.

There are plenty of things to learn. Google for most of them. If you want to go back slide left to the center.

Thanks for the move, but not asking what is the same in the land of Apple, I am asking what is different.

Looking to learn to what the different koolaid is like

There isn't much different these days other than the level of enjoyment or frustration you might get out of a particular OS.

Apple:

Fitness app if you get the watch. I'm currently an Apple hater but they did a great job on that watch and app.

Photos - I suggest digging through the icloud (if you use it) settings and disabling anything that uploads to the cloud. Other docs and such are easy to dl later if you want them, photos not so much.

itunes isn't great lol, but it's nice for backing up what you desire on a pc, although your work may require backups to the cloud as does mine.

Other than that, there are apps for most of anything someone might be into, so Google indeed for your areas of interest and see what catches your attention.

Although I prefer Android by a few light years, the tow aren't as different as Apple would have people think, regarding apps and what you can do anyway.

turn off all icloud autoupload stuff before you do anything with photos.
Its just one big pain in the ass to reset if you do it after the fact.

The apple home button...biggest thing to get used to. I came from windows mobile/10/phone so I also had a back button. The lack thereof on apple took a bit getting used to. But that home button also does everything else....home, back, multitask/task switch, etc. I'm used to it now but I'm not sure I actually like how the one button is used for everything.....

No need to fiddle around with customization all that much, there isn't a whole lot (Move icons, combine icons into folders, and change background images is pretty much all there is) However if your icons on the main page need to go onto the next screen, I find that you have to move them to that static bottom bar (4 icon slots) before you can move it to the next page as it doesn't seem like you can hold an icon at the edge of the screen and have the page change for you....its a bit cumbersome that way (not sure how android works in that regard, but win10 was one giant scroll list so if I wanted to move icons around I just move it to the bottom or top of the screen and let it autoscroll to a free spot.

you long press the icons to be able to move them...but then you have to press the home button to confirm when you're all done moving stuff around.

I do find that everything is available and just works on apple though once you can wrap your head around all the finicky apple quirks.

Wow no real stand outs I will turn off that auto update stuff thanks for the tips.

The MDM software install on my phone is buggy as heck. I have installed MDM on many Apple devices so not sure what is different other than this is the 1st one with the new 11.4 OS update. grrr

Any of you Apple IT guys have a good WIFI signal scanner app?
