so i know both have been around for decades.

yet apple managed to refine their connectivity and sharing but windows is stuck in the 90s still
everything is so complicated to set up for some reason.
and more than half the time its incompatible with everything or has to be manually connected setup troubleshoot etc...

i do hate apple but come on you had 30 years to make it work....

Hate doesn't take you anywhere, it doesn't help anyone.
If you have a problem and can't solve it, ask someone for help. That's the only thing that helps.

connectivity between devices in general.
phones other wireless devices.
i mean thats honestly the most common reason why people switch to apple products
because apple is easy to share things between devices vs trying to share something to windows device from say android phone or anything else

Apple = one company makes the hardware, writes the software; basically a walled garden

Non-Apple = hardware by one company, OS by another company, drivers by whoever; basically a conglomeration that can sometimes be more than the sum of its parts.

As somebody with a house of iPhones, iPads, and my Hackintosh VM I find it harder to share files between handheld devices with Apple than I do with Android. Before iOS 14 I couldn't even copy movies off our phones to a PC that are over 500MB a piece. Trying to do things like say, documents etc it's even more difficult as opposed to Windows to Android. Instead we use Google Drive to do such things as it's quicker and easier anyways.
