I am a smartphone enthusiast and have tested the waters of both iOS and Android. But the debate of supremacy has never seized to exist. Which of the two is the most advanced? Both the Android and iOS fanatics will claim theirs is the best. It is not questionable that both operating systems offer features. Android on its own has functionalities that iPhone has in one way or another borrowed. Similarly, iPhone has applications that, in a smart way, beat Android 10 – 0. And that is what this article is all about: The 5 things that iPhone 7 owners can do and leave the Android funs jealous.
- Instant Updates
The moment the Silicon Valley-based firm releases updates to its operating system, every person gets it. No one is left outside, whether an iPod or iPhone or iPad owner. Apple wants to be in charge of all the sections of its OS. For that matter, the firm ensures stability and quality to be on top of the list. Each time a new iOS is released, Apple worries not about third-party vendors. Their efficiency in system updates is admirable and they have been rated the fastest in dealing with system glitches and security vulnerabilities.
On the other hand, Android users can only dream of this. They have to be patient and wait for smartphone manufacturer to implement the new OS. For instance, we have in the market Samsung Galaxy J7 devices running on both Android Lollipop and Android Marshmallow.
- Reduced Ads
Android applications come with more in-built ads than any single Apple app. This is because before Apple publishes and app on its store, the developers have to go through very stringent processes.
- Advanced security on iPhone
The security offered by iOS is far much better than that of Android. In the year 2015, Mobile Threat Report suggested that of all the smartphone malware, 95% of it was written on Android. It is not possible for Android users to upgrade to the latest OS, making them a security loop easily exploited. Similarly, many devices worldwide operate on the Android OS, making them an easy target.
- Simplicity in Using
One of the biggest strength of Android is its customizability. But as much as this is a big plus, it can also be something to frown upon. Android users can utilize fancy launchers to give their smartphones pretty looks but these are not stable across all devices.
In contrast, iOS is consistent in its software across all the devices. The phones are thus more stable and easily correctable.
- iOS Apps are outstanding
It is no secret that iOS App Store has a great collection of applications compared to the Android Play Store. Well, even Google makes outstanding applications for iOS than they do for Android devices. Every time a brand new app is to be launched, the priority is always on Apple App Store. This is because iOS apps are a giant money maker compared to their Play Store equivalent.
And there you have it, these are just but some of the things that iPhone 7 owners can do which the Android users can’t. That is not to say the Android platform is not great. Well, try both platforms and you will appreciate evolution of the smartphone technology.
