Google has released a set of tips for iPhone 13 users to give their homescreen an Android look. The company offers useful tips on leveraging the new features introduced with iOS 15, particularly the updated home screen widgets (via).

It’s nothing that most iOS 15 users probably don’t know already. But this serves as a gentle reminder to iPhone 13 users who want to experience Android in some form.

Some of the tips listed by Google focus on Smart Stacks, effectively letting users “stack” multiple widgets of the same size on top of each other. This works in the same way as creating new folders on iOS, so there’s some familiarity with this experience.

Google also encourages iPhone 13 users to set Chrome as their default browser

The company is also encouraging iPhone 13 users to set Google Chrome as the default browser to “get helpful benefits from Google,” including access to last used tabs, passwords, and autofill.

“Not to mention, Chrome’s security features will continue to work in the background to keep you safe,” the post reads.

Google is currently preparing for the Pixel 6 and 6 Pro launch in October. Although the company is already marketing the phones on billboards and other locations, we don’t have an official launch date. Thanks to a recent leak, we learned about the potential pricing of Google’s upcoming flagship smartphone duo.

A video posted on YouTube suggested that the phone could be cheaper than first anticipated. The Pixel 6 will reportedly start from €649 (~$758), whereas the Pixel 6 Pro will cost €849 (~$1,050). Although we only have the European pricing for the two smartphones, it does give us a sense of what to expect when the phone is released in the U.S.

Google is aiming big with the Pixel 6 and 6 Pro, as the company’s marketing materials suggest. Rumors and leaks have pointed out that this could be the most consequential upgrade to the Pixel series.

Google could unveil the two new Pixel 6 phones on October 19. The new flagships will run on the Google Tensor SoC, a first for the lineup. This new chipset is co-developed by Samsung and will likely use the Mali-G78 GPU found on the Galaxy S21. Some major camera enhancements are also in place, including the significant camera bump on the Pixel 6 Pro.
