Apple and Google, the two major mobile industry giants each year launched a new version of the operating system iOS and Android. Every summer, after the release of a series of Beta version of the two mobile operating systems have reached the most complete state. Many of the users interested in smartphones like to argue that they are better in the end, list the various features to highlight who is more leading, who is in the catch-up state.
Not surprisingly, this year iOS 11 and Android Oreo has been officially meet with the world. Information technology with love this way of thinking, sometimes implicitly comparing the functions and characteristics of their systems, sometimes are straightforward to decide who is the winner. These have no ground for blame, to a certain extent, is also very useful. An evaluation function and UI design, direct comparison of the results will be more obvious, after all, competition can promote mutual development.
But if the guide from the user to choose the point of view, this "horse" mentality a bit stupid. You think about what users at this stage will be selected because of a function using iOS or Android system, picture-in-picture or better audio support is your decision to buy mobile phone factors?
First of all, iOS 11 and Android Oreo are in the testing phase, both are not the final version, so any conclusion based on semi-finished software to determine the conclusions are difficult to stand.
In addition, even if you admit that a platform to a certain extent, "leading" is not much significance. Android system in the number of users on the absolute advantage, the market share of up to 85%, and finally get Android Oreo update the number of mobile phones is only a small part of the market share.
Even now, running the latest version of Android Nougat equipment is only a negligible 13.5%, compared to iOS 10 penetration rate is 87% of the entire iOS system. Android Nougat system function and then cool only a small number of users can use.
Finally, I really do not believe that there are people who hope that through the two platforms can guide their purchase of a smart phone, buy a mobile phone and buy your favorite team uniforms are not the same. I would like users to choose iOS or Android based on the entire ecosystem, including services, applications and even design languages as a consideration. Although the two operating system users have lost each other, but no one will easily switch from iOS to Android (and vice versa).
Of course, this is not to say which operating system is no strength of the points, such as iOS auto-fill feature also supports only a small number of applications, Android is somewhat bloated. As for which platform is more forward-looking, we can focus on the VR, AR and voice assistant, it is hard to say who is more ahead of some.
IOS and Android version of the update is a big message, but also limited to specific users valuable. As to who is the winner? I would like to say that Apple and Google are the winner, because the current market you can choose the mainstream mobile operating system nothing more than - iOS and Android.
