In which I attempt to mitigate the anticipated disaster.

I have an iphone. Today I will be getting a MotoX. I don't really know a lot about smartphones in general or Android in general (or hell, even ios really) except that I assume there are going to be a few hiccups in the transition. Help me avoid those hiccups!

I've read a pile of tutorials on making the switch, things to watch out for, etc. I know enough to know that I should plunk my stuff into the cloud/on the computer if I want to not lose it. My biggest concern is that I've also got an ipad, which is technically for work but I mostly use it for personal stuff. Specifically I would like to know if/what things I need to do to make sure that my ipad doesn't get cranky and lose info when it's no longer married to an iphone. (They use the same apple ID account.)
Anyone who has done this before, I welcome your advice! I'm going from an iphone 4s with the latest operating system updates running on it to the new MotoX which I guess has Android 4.4. I've got Verizon if that matters.
If there are any great apps I should be aware of that will ease the transition, I'm very interested to hear about those. (I guess the voicemail will be different in some way?)
I know that the MotoX is set up to be super google friendly. But that's about all I know. Explain it to me like, well, not like I'm five, but maybe like I'm your boomer generation parent who kind of can manage to look like they know what they're doing but that's about it.
