Help with iPhone 7+ purchase decision

iPhone - MacRumors Forums - forums.macrumors.com
I'm doing some research to help my friend purchase an iPhone 7+ (will be her first iPhone). After looking at all the different models, features, pricing, and considering what is important to my friend, we have pretty much settled on the 7+. It is in that sweet spot of "not too old, yet not too pricey".

I'm not all that savvy with cell phones, so my main questions are:

1 - What are the advantages of having both a Mac computer and an iPhone (as opposed to a Mac computer and an Android phone) ? i.e. what kinds of capabilities will be provided by the compatibility between the iPhone and a Mac computer (my friend bought a new Macbook Air) ?

Will she be able to easily transfer/sync/back up contacts, photos, videos, etc between the iPhone and Macbook ?

Once the iPhone and Macbook are paired, will she be able to type and send text messages from the Macbook ?

What else will be easy to do between the iPhone and Macbook ?

2 - Is it true (I've heard) that most iOS apps on the Apple store cost money while Android generally offers more free apps ? Did you pay for most apps you got from the Apple store or get them for free ? I know that this depends on the individual app, but I'm asking you to generalize.

3 - It being a 2 year old phone, what are the implications in terms of support from Apple, repair, and maintenance ? As opposed to getting a newer phone ?

Thanks !
