After years of Apple loyalty, will this Google I/O teaser be the reason I switch to Android?

Today is the start of Google I/O, the company's developer conference, and a general platform for device and technology announcements. It looks from Google's teaser that camera AI is going to be light-years ahead.

Even if I don't think of my phone as my camera, I still take most photos with my iPhone (15 Pro Max, since you ask). I've used Android phones too, but my daily driver has always been an iPhone – I've been a loyal and regular upgrader, perhaps to the point of excessive generosity to Apple, but thus far I've seen little reason to change bearing in mind the stresses of switching operating systems (I still remember leaving RiscOS and Windows behind me).
