iOS 11 is better than Android!

Some information was shared about the iOS 11 usage rate introduced in the summer of the past year. According to what is shared on the App Store support page, iOS 11 was installed at 76 percent of all active iOS devices by April 22, 2018.

As with all previous iOS 11 releases, iOS 11.3 is compatible with the iPhone 5S or later, iPad mini 2 or later and 6th generation iPod touch or later.

For iOS 11, the 76 percent rate is slightly lower than the previous operating system. iOS 10 was around 80 percent of active iOS devices. At the moment 19 percent of other active iOS devices are using iOS 10, while 5 percent of iOS users are using older operating iOS versions.

What about Android?

When we look at the Android side, the rate of using the current operating system seems quite low. The latest version of Android, the Android Oreo, has a 4.6 percent usage rate on active devices. A large percentage of Android users are using Lollipop, Marshmallow and Nougat operating systems, which appear in 2014, 2015 and 2016, respectively.

The most important reason why Android is so far behind iOS is that Android makers have not brought the latest operating system to the end user yet. It seems that the probability of recovery is quite low in the near future. Also, all iPhones are not compatible with the older versions, which is a quite reason for the users to upgrade their iOS to iOS 11. If you have a compatible iPhone, iPad and iPod touch, Apple should automatically prompt you to install the update.

Forbes the reason to get iOS 11 as: “Apple iOS 11.3 is ‘the big one’ because it will give users full control of how their devices function for the first time. Controversially Apple admitted it previously throttled device performance as batteries age to maintain system stability. The fact users didn’t know this has prompted no less than 59 class action lawsuits and global government scrutiny with claims this throttling misled owners into buying new handsets when they only needed a new battery.”

4 Basic Differences Between iOS And Android

Google’s Android and Apple’s iOS are operating systems used basically in mobile technology, such as tablets and smartphones. Android, which is Linux-based and partly open source, is more PC-like than iOS, in that its basic features are generally more customizable from top to bottom. For some, iOS’ uniform design elements are sometimes seen as being more user-friendly. Besides, people use iOS and Android platforms to code on.

So, what are the basic 4 differences between iOS and Android?

1- Coding Language

Java is the language for Android applications development.In turn, programmers use Objective-C and Swift to create software for iOS platforms.

In order to create an app for iOS you have to have an original Apple device (e.g Macbook). Many startups choose to start with iOS first, because it requires less time and resources.

2- Design

Apple has a minimalistic, concise design in its pictograms, icons and buttons . iOS has separate miniature windows; Android has interchangeable tabs that fit across almost the entire screen. The platforms also have different styles of buttons, with floating buttons that cast shade on Android devices, and the more stylistic simple and aesthetically modern design of iOS.

3- Speed

An iPhone 6s handily beat a Samsung Galaxy Note 7 in on speed test that involved opening several apps one by one. Both Android and iOS allow you to see your battery usage at a glance, broken down by app, but only Android shows an estimate of how much battery life you have left. Apple’s iPhone 8, 8 Plus, and iPhone X all offer wireless charging and fast charging.

4- Security 

Apple prioritizes user privacy, so you can feel safe knowing your personal data is not stored or read by Apple. It is all encrypted, too. Meanwhile, Android encrypts some data, but your privacy is less protected. Google mines your data for information that it can use to sell better ads and market products to you.

Android or iPhone: What To Buy?

iPhone have been considered to be best in smartphone world without questioning for long time. It was usually a matter of money. If you were willing to pay more for a good smartphone, iPhone was the answer. Time have changed. Now, technology is bouncing off the walls. As a result, when it comes to buy a smartphone, a comparison between Android and iOS is more than the cost. We expect our phone both to have great features and to look perfect. So, let’s have a look at a detailed comparison between Android based devices and iPhones.

Hardware

Android offers both open source and far more open to alternative applications. Keep in mind, Apple hasn’t ported any of its applications to Android. Android gives you the power of choice. Google offers its Android software to many phone makers, including Samsung, HTC, LG, Motorola, etc. Because of that, Android phones vary widely in size, weight, features, and quality. Only Apple makes iPhones, so it has extremely tight control over how the software and hardware work together.

If you’re buying an iPhone, you just need to pick your model. Because Androids are made by different companies, you have to pick both a brand and a model, which can be confusing and overwhelming.

Android vs Apple

Compatibility

Android makers are very slow about updating their phones to the latest Android OS version, and older phones will no longer have support for the latest OS. This is one of the biggest dilemma between Apple and other smartphones. With many Android phones, you can insert a microSD card. Expandable memory cards available on most Android phones means you have versatility and the ability to grow your phone alongside the growing demands you have for your wireless device while, it’s possible to buy iPhones with a lot of storage, but not all models offer 128GB.

Most people use a tablet, computer, or wearable in addition to their smartphone. For those people, Apple offers a more consistent and integrated experience. Because Apple makes computers, tablets, and watches along with the iPhone, it offers things that Android can’t.

Applications

The Apple App Store offers fewer apps than Google Play and Apple is famously strict about what apps it allows, while Google’s standards for Android are lax. On the other hand, a few years ago, developers released their apps for iOS first, and Android users tended to have to wait a while before they could get them.

Apple Apps are more beautifully designed, easy to use and are presented in a well-organized iTunes Store. Android offers an extensive range of Apps in the Google Play store.

Apple vs Samsung

Design

People love to say Apple products just work. It’s certainly true that the iOS interface is easy to use. But so is the Android interface. Frankly, if you can use one, you won’t have much trouble using the other. Android-powered smartphones mean the freedom to choose the design that most appeals to you. No rigid design parameters like the iPhone. You choose amongst the widest range of sleek Android phone designs and find the design that appeals most to your individual tastes.

In terms of User Interface and experience, Apple seems to clearly top the charts, followed closely by Android at the second place. iOS offers a simple and clean interface, that is easy to use and navigate, but Android offers a deep-set of menus to choose and use.
