I'm struggling to understand if there are a great deal of benefits in moving from iOS. I'm fairly ingrained in the Apple eco system, and have been for some time.
I use my mac for work (just one or two apps, unavailable on anything except macOS or Windows) and my iPad, and my phone all work EXTREMELY well in conjunction with each other.
I'm privacy minded (my personal laptop for very secure personal and work use has had Qubes installed for the past several years- although it's a little problematic for me, it's extremely hard for me to fix when it goes wrong).
I trust Apple to a point (with my financial details, my real ID, which apps I use etc). iCloud is now encrypted, so I use it more and more for 'Stuff', though I still maintain a couple of highly secure keepass vaults and cryptomator on there.
I restrict most of my use to iOS or iPadOS rather than the Mac, and Qubes in some situations. My main threat model (realistically) is to avoid being profiled by social media and ad targeting purposes, please some client confidentiality stuff - nothing really involving LE etc, although I would prefer to be as robust as possible in this and other areas, just because.
I really love the thought of GOS - and I know for a fact I will purchase a Pixel Tablet for that to replace my Qubes set up - it will be probably more secure, or at least as, and it will be a lot easier for me to maintain. I'll only be using FLOSS stuff there.
But my phone is a different matter. I have two main issues, one is - i have avoided Google for at least the past 6 years - in order to have a similar phone experience (and to be able to replace my phone) I'll need the Play store - which means i'll need a Google account, and likely an attached bank card. Doesn't that mean I'm just swapping this aspect of trust from Apple to Google? Because I'm very uncomfortable with that! I wish to maintain ease of use (it's for my self employed business dealings and stuff.. I need 'the best' of things).
The second thing is regarding fingerprinting via a browser, which is really a big concern of mine. Ignoring the lack of Open Source for Safari, isn't it just a perfect antifingerprint browser? It's in extremely widespread use - it seems to have a standardised profile it gives for every iOS user. Surely I'm one of millions and millions with that browser when compared to others? I could be very off the mark, but that's what I'm lead to believe by various sources. It's likely to be not on par with Chromium for security, but is it in secure? I'm certainly not going to use Google Chrome, perhaps I use brave from time to time, but something sits bad there with me. I always use a trusted VPN, so perhaps it's all irrelevant.
I could really do with some serious advice as to whether it may not be to much of a bad thing to stick with my as hardeneded as it can be iOS set up, rather than go full GOS at this pont. And work on GOS via a tablet for my other dealings.
Now I'm just wittering so I'll leave it there!
