Atilia Haron, Theebaan G and Adam Lobo share their experiences switching to iPhone
Can you live a day without your smartphone? We speak to new iPhone users Atilia Haron, Theebaan Govidasamy, and Adam Lobo on what they like about the Apple device and how it has helped them in their daily activities.
We rely so much on our smartphones. I for one am guilty as charged — using my iPhone for almost everything; to check-in on MySejahtera everywhere I go, to make payments, to indulge in social media, and even to order food. Beyond that, the iPhone has been an integral part of everyday life — from work to communication, fitness to health.
For new iPhone users Atilia Haron, Theebaan Govidasamy, and Adam Lobo, switching to iOS recently has given them a new perspective on what Apple devices can do to help them in their daily routine.
Singer Atilia has always been a Mac user — for her music and other work related matters. As a new iPhone user now, she enjoys writing songs on Notes and also recording voice notes. “I actually record my loops and program my songs on Garage Bang through my phone too,” she adds.
Another favourite feature of hers on the iPhone is how it pairs seamlessly with the Apple Watch. While the health and fitness functionalities are pivotal to her daily lifestyle as an ardent yogi, Atilia recommends the “Camera Remote” app as something pragmatic during the lockdown.
“I live alone, and I’m always taking pictures for postings. Ever since I got my Apple Watch Series 6, I don’t need anybody else,” she adds. The timer feature and how she can navigate everything from her Apple Watch makes it easy to control with the tap of a button.
Like Atilia, actor and former national athlete, Theebaan also switches over to iPhone 12 this year. He admits that he is someone who prefers to incorporate as much tech into his daily life. From his phone and laptop, to his smart home system, Theebaan tries to automate as many things — as seamless as he could — to keep that part of his lifestyle fuss free.
“That said, the device that brings all these features together is the phone in your hand, and I pay a lot of attention to my daily driver. And the one issue I’ve always had was ‘app compatibility’,” he shares. “Applications made for iOS are almost always better than their counterparts. So the decision to switch over was a simple one,” adds Theebaan who enjoys the video quality taken on the iPhone.
YouTuber Adam Lobo on the other hand has been a Mac user for 19 years. While the Apple ecosystem has been oh-so familiar to his workflow, he has never owned an iPhone until earlier this year.
“It has improved my overall productivity!” he exclaims. “From continuity features between the iPhone and the MacBook Pro to even the iPad Pro, it has increased the speed of my work tremendously. And the AirDrop function makes it even more seamless.”
We speak to the trio on their experiences using the iPhone 12, especially during the lockdown.
