Many people, even me and my friends had discussed which is best – Android vs iOS.
Firstly, an operating system (OS) is system software that manages computer hardware and software resources and provides common services for computer programs. All computer programs, excluding firmware, require an operating system to function.
Time-sharing operating systems schedule tasks for efficient use of the system and may also include accounting software for cost allocation of processor time, mass storage, printing, and other resources.
For hardware functions such as input and output and memory allocation, the operating system acts as an intermediary between programs and the computer hardware, although the application code is usually executed directly by the hardware and frequently makes system calls to an OS function or is interrupted by it. Operating systems are found on many devices that contain a computer – from cellular phones and video game consoles to web servers and supercomputers.
The dominant desktop operating system is Microsoft Windows with a market share of around 83.3%. macOS by Apple Inc. is in second place (11.2%), and the varieties of Linux are collectively in third place (1.55%). In the mobile (smartphone and tablet combined) sector, according to third quarter 2016 data, Android by Google is dominant with 87.5 percent and a growth rate 10.3 percent per year, followed by iOS by Apple with 12.1 percent and a per year decrease in market share of 5.2 percent, while other operating systems amount to just 0.3 percent. Linux distributions are dominant in the server and supercomputing sectors. Other specialized classes of operating systems, such as embedded and real-time systems, exist for many applications.
iOS (formerly iPhone OS) is a mobile operating system created and developed by Apple Inc. exclusively for its hardware. It is the operating system that presently powers many of the company’s mobile devices, including the iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch. It is the second most popular mobile operating system globally after Android.
Originally unveiled in 2007 for the iPhone, iOS has been extended to support other Apple devices such as the iPod Touch (September 2007) and the iPad (January 2010). As of January 2017, Apple’s App Store contains more than 2.2 million iOS applications, 1 million of which are native for iPads. These mobile apps have collectively been downloaded more than 130 billion times.
The iOS user interface is based upon direct manipulation, using multi-touch gestures. Interface control elements consist of sliders, switches, and buttons. Interaction with the OS includes gestures such as swipe, tap, pinch, and reverse pinch, all of which have specific definitions within the context of the iOS operating system and its multi-touch interface. Internal accelerometers are used by some applications to respond to shaking the device (one common result is the undo command) or rotating it in three dimensions (one common result is switching between portrait and landscape mode). Apple has been significantly praised for incorporating thorough accessibility functions into iOS, enabling users with vision and hearing disabilities to properly use its products.
Similarities between Android and IOS
Both devices as said above has its differences but also have their similarities as they are both trending smartphones and tabs. They both feature a great application like Facebook, WhatsApp, BBM, Instagram, Snapchat and lots more. The android and IOS enables surfing of internet protection of data’s , messaging, mobile calls and lots more. They both features 2G,3G, and 4GLTE. And above all, they both aim at making communication easy for the whole world.
Difference between Andriod and iOS
|1.||It is made by different companies, so if you want to buy one, all ou need to do is pick both a brand and a model. Morever they offer greater choice than iPhone – the expensive ones though||Its made by Apple and Apple only, so if you wanna get one, all you need to do is pick your model. But i have to say its simplicity is what attract me to it.|
|2.||Operating system update is really slow – most Android phones don’t get to update their phone’s OS||To make sure you always have the latest and greatest version of your smartphone operating system, you have to get an iPhone.|
|3.||Though they seems to have better apps than Apple – Google’s standards for Android are lax.||The Apple App Store offers fewer apps than Google Play (around 2,200,000 vs. 2,700,000, as of May 2017) – Apple is famously strict (some would say too strict) about what apps it allows|
|4.||The general expectation that Android apps should be free has led game developers interested in making money (i.e., almost all of them, and certainly all the major ones) to develop for iPhone first and Android second.||Apple’s devices like the iPhone and iPod touch, are perhaps the dominant players in the mobile video game market, with thousands of great games and tens of millions of players.|
|5.||The next frontier of smartphone features and functionality will be driven by artificial intelligence and devices controlled by voice, not touch. On this front, Android has a clear lead.||Siri which is Apple’s answer to Google Assistant for artificial intelligence is still no match for Google Assistant|
|6.||If you don’t mind the extra bulk, and really need a long-lasting battery, Android can deliver a device that works much longer than an iPhone on a single charge.||The batteries on early iPhone models required a charge nearly every day, that’s still true to some extent|
|7.||Android is personally my best choice||——-|
So i guess you can see for your self who the boss is.
