I totally agree. There are aspects of the new look of Android I don't like. I'm sure there would be many things about iOS I wouldn't like as well.It always surprises me when fairly minor UI changes cause enough uproar to make a person want to switch to iPhone. In the whole scheme of things, the UI really isn't radically different. Whenever there are changes, my brain gets used to them within a few days, and then it becomes second nature.
If you change to iPhone, you will of course need to be prepared for another radical change (which, again, your brain should get used to after enough time). Maybe I'm stunted in some way, but every time I'm forced to use iOS (either on my iPhone 8 that I use to supervise my daughter's iPhone 12, or my work-issued iPad), the quirks of the UI bug me. After years on Android, iOS isn't intuitive to me, like what the various screen swipes bring up and how to get rid of those screens.
But hey, "it just works" for a lot of people, so maybe it'll just work for you!

Long before my 67th year I learned to not sweat the small stuff. There are a lot of small stuff out there. I don't have any interest in spending my time fighting it or letting it all get to me. I've had to adapt to many changes in my years. I've gotten great at it. A change in an operating system is small potatoes and no sweat.
Android works, works great, as does the Pixel. And when I get tired of the Pixel I can switch to one of a plethora of different brands of phones with different implementation of Android.
Now to tend to something more important....a coffee cake in the oven.
I just got 12 on my Pixel3a and on the lock screen they have that horrible horrible stacked clock that the galaxy s8 came with. The S8 had some other choices to change it to. I read you can leave a notification up and change the color but i was hoping for a real solution. Is there any way to change this or get rid of it on a pixel 3a?
