Setup Your Own Google iPhone

Hi guys and welcome to 123myIT. In this video, we will show you how to setup your iPhone as a Google iPhone. Ok Guys I’m an Android user and I wanted to see if I could convert myself to use an iPhone by creating a Google iPhone and replacing all the Apple Apps with Google ones.

Before and After – Google iPhone

This is what you iPhone will look like before and after you change it to a Google iPhone. You don’t need to change all the Apps you could just change the Apps you want. For example, one of the reasons I have not changed to an iPhone is I really like the Google Assistant. Later in this video, I will show you how to setup the Google Assistant with the tap back function.

Google iPhone
What your Google iPhone will look like before and after.

Let get started. First I would need to transfer the data from my old phone to my iPhone. I already have a video how to do this and if you are interested, I will put a link in the description.

Download the Apps – Google iPhone

Next, you will need to download the Apps that you use from the Apple Apps Store. Because I used the Transfer to iOS app, some of my free apps will download automatically. Once you have some apps downloaded, you can start organising them. You can replace the safari with Google Chrome or in my case, I prefer the DuckDuckGo browser and I will show you why later in the video. You can also replace Apple music with YouTube music. To edit the home screen tap, hold, and then drag the icons to where you want them. Alternatively, you can tap and hold the app and drag it.

I have not downloaded YouTube music yet so I will do that now. Just tap to download it and once its downloaded drag It to wherever you want it.

DuckDuckGo – Google iPhone

Cool, now you have you main bar down the bottom sorted. Open up your browser so Chrome or Duckduckgo and set it as the default browser. The reason I use Duckduckgo is that it is a private browser so it doesn’t track you which is nice. In the top of Duckduckgo tap the cog icon and then tap set as default browser. This will open any links in Duckduckgo rather than safari. I will show you how to do this for the Chrome browser as well.

In the Chrome browser, tap the three dots tap Settings. Tap Default browser, Tap open Chrome settings. Tap on default browser App and select Chrome. You can see Duckduckgo is selected I am going to leave it on that. However, if you want to use Chrome select Chrome.

Replace Facetime

You can replace FaceTime with Google Duo. So tap and hold the App to remove it. Then go ahead and download Google Duo from the App store. I already have it downloaded so I will move it to replace FaceTime.

You can replace Apple Calendar with Google Calendar. Photos with Google Photos. So just, download them and drag them into place.

Swap out Mail for Gmail – Gmail is better anyway.

Delete Apple maps for Google Maps – Google Maps is better anyway.

Download Google App and replace it with Weather and Download Google Assistant to replace it with Siri. You can still use Siri however; we will set up Google assistant with the Tap Back feature. Which is just awesome. 

Ok while that is downloading lets change out the Weather app. Moreover, you can move the Google Assistant to the main screen.

Download Google Keep and replace notes.

Delete News and download Google News.

Replace Books with Play Books.

Delete unwanted apps

Go ahead and delete any Apps you are not using. Remember you can always download the App again if you need too.

All right swap Play Movies with Apple TV which we deleted earlier. Another good one is Android TV.

Moreover, you can replace the health app with Google Fit.

You can swap Apple Home with Google Home.

On the Second screen you can delete any apps you are going to use. You can replace files with Google drive. Delete ITunes store. Also remove Translate and delete Watch if you do not have an Appel Watch. Delete tips and Utilities.  Keep the Shortcuts icon because we will use that for the Google Assistant.

You can move your Google drive to the top to make it neater, then go back to apps store, and download Google Docs, Sheets and Slides. Tap and hold and bring them to the top so its neater.

GBoard the Google Keyboard

Go back to the Apps store and download Gboard, which is the google Keyboard. In addition, download Wear OS which is an App for your Apple Watch. To Setup Google Keyboard to to Settings General Keyboards and tap add a new keyboard.  Select Gboard and then tap on Gboard and toggle the Allow full access button. Cool you have just setup you’re Google Keyboard.

Setup Google Assistant

Let us setup Google Assistant. Open Google Assistant and login to it with your Google Account. Just tap no thanks and continue to get it started.

All right its working go back to the Home screen find the Shortcuts icon and tap to open it. Tap the plus icon and tap Add Action. You should see Hey Google down the bottom tap that and then tap the Next button at the top. Type in the name for the Action. I just type Google Assistant this will help you identify the shortcut when you add it to the tap back action.

Cool you have a short cut now for the Hey Google command. Let’s add it to the Tap back section. Go into settings accessibility Touch and scroll down to the bottom to where it says Back tap. If you double or triple tap the back of your iPhone it can do an extra command. Go into Double tap and scroll to the bottom. Under Shortcuts you will see the Google Assistant Shortcut we created earlier select that and watch the magic. If you double tap, the back of the iPhone the google assistant starts up.

If you want to transfer data from another device, you can use the Apps and Data screen to do so. I have plenty of videos you can follow to do this I will put them in the description. For this video, we are just going to go to Don’t Transfer Apps & Data.

Apple ID

If you have an Apple ID go ahead and type it in now. If you do not have, an Apple ID now is a good time to set this up. You will need an Apple ID to download Apps to your iPhone or iPad. My Apple ID has Two Factor authentication, which means it will send a code to your email or another device. So check your other device or email for a code and type it in.

Almost there now, tap Continue on the updates screen. Then you can enable disable locations services. This turns on the GPS and it allows Apple to see where you are to recommend services to your device. Normally I turn this off and you can always turn it back on later.

Apple Pay

If you have Apple pay setup on your credit card, you can setup Apple Pay now. This allows you to pay with your iPhone or iPad instead of your credit card. I am going to tap setup later and continue to the SIRI screen. Ok I am going to setup SIRI on the iPhone you can also do this on the iPad if you want to. Ok So I finished setting up the iPad the steps will be the same on the iPhone. Tap continue and you can now use the side button to ask siri a question. You can share your Audio with Apple. I never do this always tap not now. If you want screen time reports on how you use your phone hit Continue and on iPhone Analytics tap Don’t Share.

True Tone

True tone display allows you to have a warmer display on your device. Press the see without True Tone Display to see if you like it or now. You can change this later if you want.

Select light or dark appearance which ever your prefer. IF you got big fingers or you want the text on your screen to be larger select Zoomed.

Awesome so you are all setup now. One last thing if you want to setup your SIM card you can get the little SIM card eject tool and on the iPhone 12 Pro the slot is on the left side. Push the pin into the hole to eject the slot out. Just add your SIM and replace the slot back inside the iPhone. If you do not have a sim contact your carrier. Your sim card might have a PIN on it enter your PIN. IF you do not have one contact your carrier..

How to use the Camera app One-Handed on iPhone

Apple iPhone 12 Pro Pacific Blue

Hi Guys and welcome to 123myit. In this video, we will show you everything you need to know about the iPhone 12 Pro. The iPhone 12 Pro is the same as its little brother the iPhone 12 with the A14 Bionic processor. Pricing for the iPhone 12 Pro starts at $999 USD and it comes in three different colours, Graphite, Silver, Gold and Blue.

First up in the box you have the iPhone 12 Pro itself. Next will find the documentation a SIM card eject tool, quick start guide, Warranty information and Apple sticker. The only other accessory is the Lighting USB cable, which does up to 50% charge in 30 mins with a 20-watt adapter. Not to forget that the 12 Pro supports 15 watts wireless charging and is IP68 water and dust resistant.

Minimal Packaging – iPhone 12 Pro

It’s worth mentioning that Apple has removed the USB charger and minimised packaging and documentation. Which I think its great for the environment. However, I would have liked to see Apple minimised the price of the iPhone also.

The iPhone 12 Pro has a 6.1-inch Super Retina XDR OLED display. It has a 2532 by 1170-pixel resolution at 460 ppi. If you compare it with the iPhone 8 on the left, you can see the Pro has allot more screen real estate on its 6.1-inch OLED display. In addition, for those of your who are thinking about upgrading from the iPhone 8 it would be a big update.

iphone 12 pro
Compare the screen sizes between Samsung S20+ and iPhone 12 Pro

Here’s a quick compassion between the screen size on the 12 Pro and the Samsung S20+.

Design Change on the iPhone 12 Pro

Apple has changed the design of the iPhone 12 line up as well. It now has smooth flat edges, which allows the iPhone to stand up on its end. I love this design we first saw it on the iPhone SE. However, the aluminium frame does show fingerprints. This might not be an issue if you decide to buy a cover.

The left side of the iPhone, you have the Ring Silent and Volume up and down buttons and a SIM card slot.

On the right side, you have the Sleep Wake power button. On the bottom, you have the lighting connector, microphone and 1 of the stereo speakers. Actually, the Stereo speakers are impressive. Take a listen.

Face Unlock

Face unlock is standard on the iPhone 12 models. Along the front top of the 12 Pro we have a 12 megapixel True Depth Camera which has a F2.2 aperture. While you can’t see them there is actually a whole bunch of sensors hidden here. Ambient light, Proximity, Flood illuminator, infrared camera and dot projector.

On the back of the 12 Pro you have a Triple Camera setup which features a Ultra Wide, Wide and Telephoto cameras. The Ultra Wide camera has a 120-degree field of view. The new Wide camera has a f 1.6 aperture and a 7 element lens which lets in more light. Moreover, the last camera on the iPhone Pro 12 features a 52 millimetre telephoto camera for stunning portrait shots.

Camera

Therefore, out of the box the iPhone 12 Pro will take amazing photos. Here are some comparisons between the iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 8. Can you spot the difference?

The iPhone 12 Pro has the A14 processor. A fast processor is important when playing games and videos or when generally moving around the iPhone. Here’s the Geekbench scores for the iPhone 12 Pro and the iPhone 8.

In terms of Battery life for the iPhone, you can expect up to 17 hours video playback. This will get you about 11 hours of streamed video playback. Say from the web.

So what’s my thoughts pretty amazing phone you can’t really go wrong. However I think the price could have dropped a bit since Apple no longer includes a charger and battery life could be also be improved in my mind. I would like to see it last longer.
