After its electrifying announcement of launching iOS 11 in The Apple’s World Wide Developers’ Conference, Apple has been in news since then. The developers regard this as a historic breakthrough amongst all the previous operating systems. To keep an eye on this battle here we are comparing iOS 11 vs Android 7.0 Nougat features.
What’s new in iOS 11?
- New and extensive App Store has been introduced in new iOS11. Large numbers of applications with different tutorials have been added to guide the users what things you can perform with this particular app.
- With that a whole new module of Gaming has been added to provide a profound experience of gaming for Apple users. You can also see game play videos, previews and tips too.
- Multitasking has really been improved in modern iOS 11 such that you can frequently access different apps and files from any screen (for Ipad only). The new app switcher feature also provides instant mobility from one app to another.
- The Drag and Drop feature has also caught the eyes in such a way that you can just drag one file from an app and drop into another’s.
- Files a new app for (Ipad only) has been introduced in iOS 11 that allows you to drag and drop attachments from Mail or any other app into a particular folder, or create folders to help stay organized and find what you’re looking for faster. It’s going to make multitasking so much quicker, and brings the iPad Pro a lot closer to an alternative to a laptop.
- The marvelous Don’t Disturb While Driving app has done a world of good to the users that helps remove distractions from the phone by lowering it volume while driving.
- Messages, Lock Screen apps have also been improved a lot. In messages app a wonderful addition is of ‘app drawer’, which contains stickers, and a new peer-to-peer version of Apple Pay which lets you pay contacts via iMessage. That could be a game-changer; Apple Pay has already made big strides in corporate acceptation but this can take it into the realm of everyday life.
- Control Panel has also been improved a lot. The notifications appear on the screen while it is locked and can be accessed by a single touch. With that by swiping up from down the notification panel has introduced blocks or windows of different settings.
What’s there for Android Nougat?
- In comparison with iOS it allows more customization of default apps.
- An exclusive feature that iOS has yet to work on is the multi–window split screen usage. You can watch any video and use other app at the same time.
- While coming to the gaming experience it has got an extensive number of games but the experience is quite better on iOS.
- The boot time and multitasking speed is quite the same in both while working but third party applications more likely crash in iPhone.
- As far as the security matters are concerned iPhone provides a lot more credibility to the users.
- iOS is a powerful and impactful counter to the Google services but Google services are a lot more users friendly and provide a lot more opportunities to the developers.
I think Apple has much to learn from the features added to Android in couple of years, but iOS seems to have taken a step ahead in laptop-replacement multitasking features on iPad. Here is a detailed talk on Apple’s first augmented reality framework ARKit.
