In contrast to Android’s openness, the ecosystem wherein Apple thrives is highly restricted. A striking example of this is: One can, in the present scenario, buy and access hundreds of models of Android powered phones and tablets belonging to several companies. But in the case of iOS, the only options are Apple’s iPhone or iPad.
The two leading companies in the mobile platform market, Google and Apple, both announced their new operating systems for the next year recently. While neither Apple’s iOS 9 nor Google’s Android M have been released yet (both will land this fall), the companies did detail their new software at length. With that in mind we decided to tackle which looks to be the most comprehensive update and we will try to decide whether one of the OS’s is pulling away from the other in terms of quality.
While iOS 8 was originally introduced at the WorldWide Developer’s Conference this past fall, the finalized release version of Apple’s latest iOS made its debut in September 2014. The eighth major instalment in Apple’s mobile operating system finds itself being acclaimed by nearly every true Apple fanatic.
Just this month, Apple hosted their annual Worldwide Developer’s Conference, and ultimately shook the world of tech-heads across the globe. The conference is usually used to show off and present new software to the world, but this year, in addition to previewing iOS 8 and OS X 10.10, they also had some big things in for developers. In this article, we will briefly go over the happenings in the technology world, and inform on what exactly is going on.
Alas, Apple fanatics have yet another thing to blog and rave about. After the keynote message at the annual Worldwide Developer’s Conference (dubbed “WWDC”), everyone watching took to their respective devices to tweet about the newest additions to the Apple Ecosystem. For some, it was improvements in OS X, and the revealing of Yosemite. For others, it was the debut of Swift and other developer’s improvements. For most, however, it was the long-awaited announcement of iOS 8.
Developers, developers, developers. We were certainly blown away at the annual Apple Worldwide Developer’s Conference not too long ago. Just this month, Apple pointed out some key new features for developers, promising some pretty big things and opening up a brand new world of opportunity for us. In their annual keynote, Apple stole headlines with the expected announcement of iOS 8, the expected announcement of OS X 10.10, called “Yosemite”, but certainly no announcement was larger than that which was for the developers. Apple gave developers some new toys to play with, and the results will certainly be enormous.
