I’ve known for a while that my next phone wasn’t going to be an iPhone. Probably a Pixel with GrapheneOS or CalyxOS.
After 3 years of use, this iPhone still works tremendously well. No lag, good battery life, excellent performance.
I knew apple wasn’t trustworthy but at least they weren’t google. But with the latest revelations I wish I could dump my iPhone and get a Pixel to flash it… >
@weltsnake I’m in a similar boat my phone is only 2 years old at this point so no point in ditching it just yet. Just remove your stuff from the iCloud Photo Library and turn it off. I just spent an afternoon downloading everything now I have to find good Linux photo organization software.
@Casinoslcohol luckily I’ve never used iCloud photos so that’s fine for me. But still these moves from apple make me not want to use an iPhone anymore, but oh well..
Sadly I don’t have any recommendations for such software but I hope you find what you need!
@weltsnake in case anyone else comes across this. It looks like digikam is a good solution. I have not tested it much just yet. But so far seems like a greate replacement.
I feel you on not using an iPhone, but I’d give it a year or two and see if all the android makers start doing the same thing.
