Opinion post byRita El Khoury
Every time Apple takes to the stage to announce a new product or software update, the Android fan and multi-platform user in me takes a backseat and pouts in envy. For a few hours, sometimes even days, I start wondering what it would be like to dump my Pixel 6 Pro, Galaxy Watch 4, Nothing Ear (1) buds, Pixelbook laptop, Xiaomi Android TV, and Nest speakers, and go all in with Apple. I already have the iMac and iPad to build from. And it would be so smooth and seamless to opt into a unified ecosystem. Then I remind myself of how much I dislike iOS as a daily driver and how boring life would be as a single-brand user, and my jealousy slowly dissipates.
This time, though, I reckon there will be lingering envy, and it’s all because of the Apple Watch Series 8‘s new temperature sensor and the way Apple is using it to track female health.
