Security and Privacy for Android vs Iphone
If you are kind of person who takes Privacy and security seriously this comparison should be key for you. Let’s start first with iPhone.
iPhone ( Apple )
in 2022 when Apple first announced it’s new update where as a user you can opt out and do not allow Apps like Instagram , Facebook or TikTok to track you . It made a headline. While on one site big Apps companies were furious as they can’t show effective ads to end user , losing millions in ad revenue privacy users were pretty happy as finally they have option to keep their data private.
IOS operating system also takes security pretty seriously and Apple make sure Any APPs deployed on to Apple Store meets those rules.
While Companies like Samsung, Vivo and Huawei modify the Android OS to serve their customers. It still lakes seriousness in Security and data privacy .
Android Apps uploaded on Play store easy to get hacked and erroneous.
The Winner : Clearly iPhone ( Apple )
Connectivity of the device
We buy phones not just make phone calls now, the use of phones goes beyond. In this section we try to evaluate which Eco-system Apple or Android has better connectivity options and flexibility .
iPhone provide seamless and perfect connectivity with Mac, Ipads, Airpods or anyother apple products which works with IOS. Apple is smart in thinking outside the box and try to bring customer in this Eco-system. You will not have any complains .
Apple provides some of the powerful software like Itunes which can help to answer some of your connectivity Solutions.
Things gets complicated When you try to go out side Apple Eco-system . Let’s say trying earphones from Sony or Transferring files with Samsung phones . It does work but experience will not be seamless .
Android ( Phones )
Google try to encourage developers better than Apple So when it comes to Connectivity of your phone be less assured an Android phone got plenty of options.
There are so many free apps, Software for windows that any connectivity requirements will be easy to meet.
Take an example of Fitbit watches or Garmin watches. These watches allow you to take calls and reply text for Android but they lake these basic options for iPhone!
Any New Apps update always comes in android phones first before it is developed in iPhone. ( most of the cases )
