Apple Finally Admits Android Is Better?

by birtanpublished on November 21, 2020

Has apple finally admitted that android is better have they finally done it have they come out with a conclusive statement that they have gotten it wrong and android got it right well no of course not but some people think that ios 14 point to that very statement they could be making just not making it outwardly so i kind of understand where they're coming from and i'll talk a little bit about those things and why some parts of it are kind of true and some of it is just more of the same

But how ultimately apples just being apple and just trying to make their products better now side note some of you may know that i normally wear my merch in my videos and this is actually the logo from my podcast gadgetcast which i do with greg from grace gadgets links in the description below uh it's really awesome we're going to talk about this subject and many other subjects to come the reason i bring it up is because the show is the fastest growing tech podcast

Anywhere on the internet and it's so cool that i i didn't make this shirt a listener of the show made this shirt like that's how cool the shirt the show is the show is amazing and if you're not if you don't believe me someone else made a hat they made an actual custom hat for gadgetcast like that's how cool this show is people love it you should absolutely check it out link in the description now without any further ado did apple finally admit that android is

Better i'll tell you all about it and if they did right after this what up players welcome back and for all you new people welcome my name is travis and i do tech videos every single week and have a blast doing one of that sounds like fun to you sit back relax and enjoy the video anything i talk about will be in the description below but for now let's just get into the video ios 14 being released

Very soon in the developer beta being out a lot of people are starting to say that ios is finally turning the corner and becoming more like android i actually don't really agree with that but i do understand where they're coming from you see finally apple is closing the gap on some very important things that the operating system could not do before and it can now do it also that opens up the floodgates for possibilities in the future made a video a couple weeks back where i complained about all the things that

Ios would have to do to keep me on an iphone and they came a little closer than i thought they would i also made a video very recently about whether or not you should buy an iphone or an android phone i'll leave a link for that in the description and in the end card and that's actually really important as well because i think it takes a different person to buy an iphone and android phone they both serve their purposes well but for different reasons but ios 14 starts to

Bridge the gap between ios and android and what i mean by that is some of the major missing pieces are starting to be put into ios and it was one of those things where i thought it would never happen there were certain things that i just gave up on and here they are number one and the one that i know a lot of people online are talking about are widgets and listen i've been a widget fan and a widget user on android ever since they first came out many years ago and they're actually great pieces of software they're just

Little clips of different things you can see on your home screen without having to open up an app i've been using them for a long time i think they're great apple's former use of that wasn't even a widget you kind of swiped all the way over to the left and you could see kind of some things going on but really wasn't a widget but these are a widget and they've even taken them to another level by allowing you to kind of swipe to between them between widgets in them so it is an actual step forward and definitely something that has existed on

Android i don't think anyone from apple could ever deny the fact that widgets existed on android first so they are kind of admitting that those were good finally and picture-in-picture long been an android staple something that android users have held over iphone users for a long time and rightfully so a picture in picture should have been something that should have worked a long time ago especially with something like facetime which is another thing that we'll get picture

And picture this year why did it take this long like like why i mean it already starting to seem like you're trying to android up an iphone just by those two things alone but there's even some other things they've done which are great usability products but again have existed on android for a long time including the translate now translate came through google on android when you would want to translate something they've been able to do it for multiple

Languages for a very long time but this is kind of cool because they're doing it natively in ios so you can actually translate real time with people that are near you again not something that hasn't existed on android for a long time matter of fact it has so yet another check mark in the fact that maybe apple is admitting that android is better what about app library which is basically like the drawer on android that's been around since the very beginning of android

I've always talked about how i don't like how every single screen has to have apps on it and some people have had little ways of getting just one app on and have it forget about it you've always had to have apps on screens and it just didn't look right and you couldn't really you could make folders which came well after they were on android but it just looks messy and now there's an actual drawer but kind of i mean you still have your normal apps you just have a drawer as well

Again another reason to think that maybe apple is seeing the light but the reality is this is no different than any other time when apple takes something from android or android takes something from apple the problem is some manufacturers on the android side of things take dumb things from apple just dumb things only thing i gotta say is the notch so many android manufacturers and 2019 took the notch for no reason there was no reason the notch existed on the iphones for the face scanning hardware

And some android phones just just put just put a lebron james notch in it that's all they did they just put a notch on there just cuz and while it took a long time for iphone to get things like wireless charging which again you could say is admitting that android was right they did in a way that was kind of thoughtful and moved the needle for a lot of businesses that were going to implement wireless charging but did in a very fast way after the iphone did and let's be clear these are not implemented the same way

That they are on android for example the widgets aren't like full size you can have like full screen widgets on uh on android you can do a lot of different things with those these are very specific same thing with picture-in-picture currently it only works with a certain amount of programs i'm sure that will expand over time and the reality is all of these things are going to live under a specific type of kind of concept for ios which is don't drain the battery unnecessarily

And close down when you're done with it which is a blessing and a curse sometimes you want things to run in the background picture in pictures should float all the time i have a feeling there's going to be some situations where it won't work we'll find over time and they'll be bugs and they'll squash them but it's always under the watchful eye of apple their concept of how something should work is just not the same way as android so yes they are taking some of the best bits of some of the best android phones

Out there currently and these are actually good things it gives me hope for things like split screen multitasking which still have not come to the iphone and while it doesn't look like it will because they do it on the ipad and they might think that splitting a smaller screen is against some type of customer experience the reality is they're doing things now that we didn't think they would do so is it possible there's a change in apple unlike apple of old this kind of proves

That they're listening and paying attention and seeing what works on the competitor's device and maybe try to bring it over to apple are they legitimately looking at the competition and thinking hey there are real reasons why there's certain things on android that we literally should do and maybe put our own spin on it and trust me all of these things are not just direct rips from android they are straight up appled that's a new term appled and in case you're wondering yes it goes the

Other way i mean we've seen stuff on android that's been taken from ios for years there's been lawsuits going both directions for billions of dollars we've seen this time and time again it's crazy so yes they both take from each other good people borrow great people and artists steal i know you've heard that before somewhere and that's kind of what's going on most of the time but stealing legally whatever that is when i hear people talk about android stealing from ios or ios

Stealing from android i kind of just blank out i don't care about that stuff don't you want a better experience in general like i don't really care as long as it's legally done if someone borrows from another like why should i care i just want a better experience all around and i think you would want the same if you like something that android does you should want it on your iphone and if you want something that the iphone has like airdrop you should want it on your android

As a matter of fact there's something that's actually being worked on right now that should bring an airdrop like experience to android here pretty soon which is great like that should be a thing should have been the thing for quite a while now but at least it's coming and things like imessage have really kicked it up to another notch and i know rcs is out there but there's still a lot of phones a lot of people who just can't take advantage of rcs i've seen it you can't send full like quality pictures reliably

To someone on android it just doesn't seem to happen all the time and i know that a lot of you out there in the comment section say yes it does for me yes it does for me guarantee you there's someone you're sending stuff to that's not getting the full quality image or video and to be honest we should be actually cheering on the other side if you're a samsung knight you should be cheering on the apple sheep if you're an apple sheep you should be cheering on the samsung well not the samsung nights but samsung

Because each company gets better and comes up with better and better products it's going to push the other company to do just as much and hopefully for a lower price i mean it's not exactly the direction things are going at the moment but maybe we'll get there regardless of everything yes apple has taken some things from android for sure and made them their own and that's not a bad thing and no apple's not becoming the next android not even a little bit

It's still as locked down as ever that's not gonna change they're making way too much money doing what they're doing if they started to lose money different story i wonder what apple would do then why don't you leave me a comment below and let me know what you think if apple actually started to lose money would they do even more android things at a lower price like you know split screen multitasking or even true multitasking can we get please can we get real

Multitasking please please steve jobs please i know you i know you're there i know you can hear me let me know in the comments below what you're thinking but also i want to show you something i talked about if you should buy an iphone or an android phone there's a lot of layers to this and i covered it right here so make sure you check it out peace and love and also check out gadgetcast see you there
