Wk6: iOS or Android mobile?


“Which system do you prefer when you decide to get the new phone?”

Today, most people would choose a phone based on the system at first. As the quality of the system will affect the convenience of life. Unquestionably, It’s an era when information technology rapidly develops and We don’t want to waste too much time to wait for the phone system loading.

The phone developers created ten smartphone system but only two mobile phone systems dominate the market – Apple IOS and Andriod. These two platforms accounted for more than 99 percent of all new smartphones shipped over the last year, and that rose to 99.7 percent in 2017, according to IDC. Evan BlackBerry makes Android devices now. So why are these two platforms so pop?Let’s delve into the key differences between the two systems.

when you turn on the Apple phone it already had lots of applications right out of the box to use. The Apple phone concept is simple and easy to use. Apple defines everything that is on the phone.Apple phone used to not allow install the extra app as the users can be protected from suspicious sources of harmful software. Apple’s network would be more feudal. A year after the iPhone’s introduction, Apple launched the App Store which means Apple wanna build up the apple network.The hope is to strike a balance between liberal systems and feudal systems. Also, outsiders could write software for the iPhone and be setting the stage for a new round of revolutionary VisiCalc now.

We often call Apple’s software ecosystem a ‘walled garden’ because of the Apple fiercely controls what can come in and leave for that matter.Apple’s review of all the apps and verification of the identity of app publishers.

“Smart mobile devices to better recognize user’s preferences and requirements.”

Conversely, Android system is freer than iOS. Android system is based on the Linux kernel development and use of Java programming language.It led to the interface has endless changes.Android created a free and open source mobile platform that any coder could write for and any handset maker could install since the system is easy to manage.

Nearly any new phone will be able to run Android such as Samsung.The phone evolves since users add apps from indie developers to take advantage of the seamless Web access.

However, Android is not a very safe than iOS as it has many bugs that easy to hack in.“Pulse Secure’s 2015 Mobile Threat Report put the figure at 97 percent of all mobile malware, while the US Department of Homeland Security estimated in 2013 that just 0.7 percent of malware threats were aimed at iOS – and while this is partly because Android has more users, it’s mainly because it’s simply an easier target.”

Android’s connection to the Google ecosystem of services is strong and arguably more useful compared with Apple’s cloud services suite. It’s easier to break into Android, and malware writers will almost always go for the low-hanging fruit.

Actually, some Android phone would provide another system to fix bugs Such as Samsung S8+. I tend to use the Android phone since  Android connect Google drive and it easy to manage my google accounts.



“That is the re-creation of the Internet. That is the re-creation of the PC story,” Schmidt told business leaders at the World Economic Forum in Davos a month after Christmas.

Smartphone is like a private little computer in your pocket.Easy to carry and manage your stuff simply. It’s also the new way people want to connect with each other.
