The iOS vs Android debate has been ongoingever since the platforms were created over a decade ago.
And since this channel is called Apple Explainedand I love Apple products we’re going to talk about why iOS is better than Android.
But I do want to preface this entire videoby saying I don’t hate Android, I truly believe both platforms have their own strengthsand weaknesses.
And the decision regarding which one is bestfor you, is your decision to make.
Everyone’s smartphone needs are different.
And therefore no one can say that one platformis objectively better than the other, but I do think it’s fair to point out the specificstrengths that iOS has over Android.
And don’t worry Android fans I will releasea video titled “Why Android Is Better than iOS, ” it’s just not going this video.
So please still leave a like, and please stillsubscribe with the bell notification to be notified when that Android video is released.
Alright so let’s start with what I thinkit’s the number one reason why people choose iOS over Android.
And that is the user experience.
Apple is great at making tech products fornon-tech people.
And I think iOS does a fantastic job at keepthings simple enough that everyday people can pick up an iPhone or iPad without beingintimidated by an overly complicated interface that plagues many Android devices.
And I can already hear Android fans sayinghow stupid all us iPhone users must be if we can’t figure out how Android works, butyou really need to understand that isn’t a matter of being stupid or smart.
It comes down to the fact that people enjoyusing products that are convenient.
And if they can figure out how iOS works quickerthan Android, you can bet they’ll view that product as more convenient and less frustrating.
Also, smartphone manufactures can apply theirown custom skin to Android.
Meaning its interface is different dependingon which hardware it’s running on.
Which for most people makes the entire ecosystemappear even more convoluted and confusing.
Which is a nightmare for everyday people whojust want to use something that looks and works consistently.
That also gets us into perhaps my least favoritepart about Android, which is the fragmentation.
I made a whole video about this topic a yearago, and it really is one of the worst parts about owning an Android device.
Just think about the fact that there are literallythousands of different Android devices on the market today.
Compare that to the eight iOS devices beingsold.
That is an unbelievable difference that hasa huge effect on a variety of things.
First, iOS devices outperform Android everytime.
In fact, the cheapest iOS device, the $400iPhone SE, is actually faster than one of the most expensive Android devices, the $1, 400Galaxy S20 Ultra.
And fragmentation is to blame.
Because chip manufacturers like Qualcomm haveto build a one-size-fits-all chipset, capable of running on thousands of different Androiddevices.
Compare that to Apple, who makes their owncustom chips, optimized to power their own custom hardware, which runs its own customOS.
That is the biggest advantage Apple has overalmost every Android manufacturer today.
They control the hardware, software, and chipsetsincluded in their products.
Which means Apple can squeeze way more powerout of their processors than Samsung or Google.
And it’s why Android devices might havemore processing cores or more RAM, but is still smoked by the cheapest iOS devices.
All that raw power isn’t being optimizedby the hardware or operating system because Qualcomm, the chip manufacturer, isn’t onthe same page as Samsung, the smartphone manufacturer, who isn’t on the same page as Google, whoprovides the Android operating system.
But the benefits of Apple’s all-encompassingapproach to their products doesn’t stop there.
Have you ever noticed that there are a lotmore high quality, low cost apps available on the iPhone or iPad compared to Androidsmartphones or Android tablets? It’s because developers prefer creatingapp for iOS over Android.
And that’s because they only need to optimizetheir apps for a handful of iPhones and iPads, the vast majority of which are running oneversion of iOS, rather than making sure their app can run on thousands of different Androidproducts running several different versions of Android.
Also, developers make more money on app saleson iOS, likely because pirating is much more difficult on a closed platform, rather thanan open source platform like Android.
Another benefit of iOS are the updates.
iPhones and iPads not only receive new updateson a regular basis, but they’re also available on older devices.
The latest versions of iOS have supporteddevices that were released five years earlier.
If you have an Android device, you’d belucky if it’s still receiving updates after two years.
And that’s a really big deal to customersspending a thousand dollars or more on a new smartphone.
Deciding between a device that’ll be supportedfor two years vs five years, is not a difficult choice for most people.
The last benefit many iOS users enjoy, isits seamless integration with other Apple products.
And while Apple haters will call us sheepfor allowing ourselves to be locked down to one company’s ecosystem, they have to recognizethat virtually every single tech company is trying to lock down their customers to theirown ecosystem.
It’s just that Apple is the best at it.
Google tried to do it by releasing their owntablets in addition to the Chromebook and Pixel, but those tablets were a complete failureand eventually discontinued.
Microsoft tried to do it by releasing theirown Windows phones in addition to their computers and tablets, but they were also a completefailure and eventually discontinued.
Samsung is trying to do it with their Galaxysmartphones, tablets, smartwatches, and notebooks.
And I will admit they’re having the mostsuccess out of all other Android manufacturers, but they’re still being dominated by Applein the tablet, smartwatch, and notebook market.
And the reason why Apple is so good at integratingtheir product ecosystem is because they’ve been doing it ever since the company was foundedin 1976.
They were building and integrating their ownhardware and software at a time when all computer manufacturers were licensing the Windows operatingsystem from Microsoft, and running it on unoptimized hardware.
Apple created one of the earliest popularmobile devices, the iPod, and made sure it worked seamlessly with their Mac computers.
And as mobile devices like smartphones andtablets became popular, Apple found themselves in the best position to make all of theseproducts seamlessly integrated with each other.
Because that’s been their philosophy sincethe early days.
And it’s turned out to be the right approach.
Because now companies like Microsoft, Google, Samsung, and Huawei are trying to catch up and adopt the same approach.
So to all the people hating on Apple’s “walledgarden”, you’re just mad because our garden is bigger and prettier than yours.
