- Moving towards Android: Most mobile phone users will not be ready to switch their TVs in short-term and with those TV's having in-built Chromecast support, users will prefer mobile phones supporting Chromecast and gives Android phones an edge over iPhones.
- Users unaware of Airplay: Chromecast has been widely popular among all mobile phone users including iPhone users, that most users were still unaware of the Airplay feature available in iOS and are still hesitant to use these features in their phones.
- Application support for Airplay: Most Entertainment applications are now built-in with Chromecast support and even in iOS, the streaming and OTT apps support Chromecast support by default. Even if Airplay support is enabled within these applications for FREE by Apple, it would take another year or so, for the feature to be completely utilized by those developers. Only post successful utilization of Airplay in the entertainment apps, the users will find differentiating features and quality between Chromecast and Airplay.

- iCloud Storage plan: With Apple One, the users get 50GB of cloud storage and exclusive iCloud+ features of private relay and unlimited CCTV cloud storage. However, based on my preference, I have OneDrive subscription plan and it has been my primary online cloud platform for sharing my Photos. Also, since I use Mac Catalina version of Operating System, the private relay feature will not work on the older versions and the CCTV cloud storage will be of no use due to limitations of my network provider.
- Apple TV subscription: Other benefits that was included as part of Apple One subscription plan was the Apple TV OTT platform and exclusive access to movies or series. However, there were only few stand-alone series like SEE and few movies like Greyhound that were exaggerated higher than the content and included only very few regional contents in India. So, Apple TV subscription will not make much difference for me, other than experiencing Spatial audio feature in the movies or series content.

- Lack of choice to select specific folders in MAC: I use Apple's MacBook pro as my preferred laptop for both business and personal use and have no intentions of moving back to Windows operating system in near future. Post installation of OneDrive to my MAC, the most annoying part was, it had defined folders in it and had no preferences/options available to either select or discard specified folder inside my MAC. I had to copy and paste each file(s) into OneDrive's folder for it to sync across devices and when there is change in files architecture or update in the document, the changed files or updated document to be manually moved to the OneDrive‘s online folder. Also, OneDrive does not allow users to backup system files or back up critical system files to OneDrive folder.
