IOS features can be learned from Android

IOS features can be learned from Android

. 3 min read

It has been acknowledged that Apple and Android’s operating system can actually learn from each other. Today, we will mention about Android features which can be adapted for iOS. These features can be effective if implemented for the iOS system.

Managing files.

Files management has always been an issue for mobile users, and specifically for tablet users. Android’s files manager application is the same as a computer’s, which shows a clear difference when it comes to iOS. It is considered much easier and more accessible for the users. The new operating system iOS 13 has upgraded the new files application to be more desktop oriented. However, this new upgrade is still not very optimized for Android’s system. iOS 13’s files still solely associated at the application level, and it needs some more time to provide support for other apps.

The T9 Search Function.

When we think of the search function, it often tends to the internet. However, searching your phone devices is one of the noteworthy things when the smartphone is a common device nowadays.

iPhone has the default search function that you can find it so useful.
When you enter any request for your contacts, texts, applications, and webs, it searches so easily.

However, for people who use a lot of apps, in order to search via all of the phone’s data and seek a specific app isn’t all that convenient. However, there is an app called AppDialer-T9 on Android that can help you a lot. You can right away find what you are looking for without any irrelevant results. By replacing the virtual keyboard, AppDialer-T9 utilizes the classic T-9 format for typing and displays the results right above the keyboard.

Built-in Pro mode.

iPhone doesn’t have the integrated pro mode in its phones. The reason is that Apple wants to have the simplest task of taking pictures experience: put it up, press it, finish, put it back in the pocket. Currently, Apple is doing well on this feature. However, there is still the issue that you cannot adjust light and other parameters. Instead, users have to install a 3rd-party app to be able to control the camera parameters. If the Pro mode can be integrated into the iOS camera app, that will help a lot. Also, Apple’s products will definitely be more suitable and more intuitive than any other 3rd-party apps.

Swipe right to back.

iOS users can swipe left to back. However, if iOS users can swipe right to back, that will be more convenient for using one left hand or one right hand. Currently, Android firms have deployed left and right-swiping functions to back.

More improved maps app.

The Google Maps application for mobile phones gives detailed mapping information over a phone’s data connection. Android platforms have access to all of Google Maps’ features since Google Maps, and Android platforms are both developed by Google. Google Maps is the iPhone’s default mapping program and provides several useful features on the iPhone, but the iPhone needs the complete Google Maps feature set that Android-powered phones enjoy.

Call recording Feature.

Mobile phones users always expect this app on their phones. However, it is almost non-existing on iPhones. Apple is a firm that highly appreciates user’s privacy, and they don’t want to support the call recording even it’s allowed by laws.

Currently, to use call recording on iOS, you can only achieve this by buying some external hardware.
