Feature Comparison

In terms of feature both of the Operating System stand out to give you something new on the table. There are plenty of features that both the platform offers. Beginning with the Dark Mode, Well both of these Operating System offers you that. Although, if we are to talk about which one is better the iOS would be the answer. With iOS, the user got more options and it looks better. One thing that is common among both devices is Gestures. Although, Google has seriously nailed the gesture control this time. Talking about the split-screen aspect, well iOS 13 still doesn’t have it.

Although, the IOS comes up with something really cool i.e Memoji’s. These can easily be called an extended version of Emoji’s. Although, one would find them way better. With a Memoji, you can actually customize your character as per your likeness and record videos with your avatar. There is a multitude of options using which one could make their avatar quite identical to themselves. 

Last but not least but it is important to compare the speed of these two OS. By far the Android 10 has an upper hand on this, especially with the daily utility apps. iOS 13 is also good but we felt based on our research that Android 10 is slightly faster.

Dark Mode Yes Yes iOS

Split Screen No Yes Android
Memoji Stickers Yes No iOS
Speed Android

Which One is Better and Why?

Considering the fact that both of them are completely different ecosystems, it is hard to say which one is better. Although, if we talk about features both of them are quite extensive in offerings. On the above sheet, it might feel like Android is leading but it is more a matter of the user’s choice. For instance, Split Screen is a great feature that lets you handle two apps at the same time. Although, on the other hand, you have Memoji by Apple which can transform the way we communicate with emojis. Therefore, if you will personally ask me then I would say Android(because I am user) despite the fact that I loved Memoji. Although, if you’ll ask an Apple User, the story could be a little different.

Expected Features in the Next OS Versions of iOS and Android

Well, not much can be said about the next iteration of both the versions of iOS and Android. The reason is simple: both of those upgrades launched recently so at least for now there are no official announcements. Although, if we are to figure what can happen next then there can be quite many features that can be added.

For instance, if we talk about iOS then there are pretty cool features in Android that the OS doesn’t have. For example, Always-On Display, Create Multiple Users, Night Mode in Camera, Clear All Apps, and many others. For the next upgrade, Apple might consider these things and possibly upgrade itself.

On the other hand, if we are to talk about Android then you’ll find a pretty stubborn user’s on the other side of the shore. This calls for features that Android just lags about. For instance, an Android OS doesn’t have a native screen recorder, spam filter, messaging to sync devices, sending money in message, call listen to music on the separate speaker, and many more. These are things that Google might start to work upon.
