The battle between Google and Apple is so legendary and known as pitting Real Madrid and FC Barcelona or Goku and Vegeta so do not need to talk about it in depth. And it is that over the years we have seen how both companies have fiercely fought to have the best hardware and the best software.
On this day, taking advantage of the high temperatures that run our country, we want to stoke those flames and some face the two most advanced mobile operating systems of the moment. ¿Android iOS No. 10? It is probably the question that many users right now yourselves after seeing the announcement of the new version of Apple's mobile platform Monday 13 June at WWDC 2016.
Let 's look at its main features and know thoroughly what are the notable differences between the two operating systems. What will be the winner in this duel to the death?
IOS10 vs Android N clash of the titans
For this confrontation we have used Android developer preview N 4 and iOS 10 in its first beta, in one aspect that has changed in the latter: the lock screen. And it is that IOS 10 we have found that the design is quite similar to some earlier versions of Android, although we can find some differences that make the somewhat special apple.
First, we note that we are able to move to the left, where we can meet all widgets with the option of moving them and arrange them as you want. Another interesting options that come with IOS 10 is that we can move to the right to get instant access to the camera, being more useful mode used by the boys on the block.
Another interesting options that until now had not seen in any version of iOS, and called Raise to Wake, is that when you lift the iPhone screen will light showing if there is any new notification. In this sense, we must say that in a pure Android Nexus 6P also have this option even can save battery power.
In the case of Android N, we find that the lock screen has evolved and simplified with each new version until today. In this case, we will not see any option for widget, we only have a button to access the camera and another to use the voice assistant. Simpler, impossible.
On the one hand, we have iOS 10 in which we find different desktops go ordering all our applications as you want, or create specific folders for each gender. In this case, we spotlight as a great tool to quickly find the applications or view all of our widgets from the desktop last we have created. In this sense, find applications in iOS 10 can be simpler than Android.
As for the Google system, we must say that we have more options and have the ability to create desktops you want, folders and add widgets regardless of the desktop that is. Thanks to third - party launchers, Android is carried forward to iOS in terms of customization, something that caught us by surprise.
In pure Android will have the application box, where we can find the apps sorted by date of installation, and can do a search from the Google bar. However, searches on iOS are much more complete and powerful allowing you to search e-mails, events or applications in the App Store itself.
If we talk about fluidity in the system animations and transitions, we have to say that IOS 10 despite being in the first beta for developers, comes out as the clear winner in this duel. And it is that the animations are really fast and are very well achieved in the mobile operating system of Cupertino.
Of course, although not to the level of iOS 10 Android N incorporates new animations and very visual with Material Design, which looks really good on devices like the Nexus 6P. As always in these cases, it will be a matter of taste when choosing between one or the other, but both operating systems are at a high level.
If we talk about multitasking, we must emphasize the simplicity of iOS in which we simply apply double tap the home button or gesture with four fingers on tablets, to access applications that are open and close those that wish. Thanks to this simplicity we find a great management on iOS RAM 10.
In the case of Android N we see that they have taken a step forward and although we continue counting on the list of recent apps as always, now also will have the ability to close all open apps in the background with a single button. In addition, we also have the option of going to the last app open only to press the button twice, something that is difficult to do in iOS 10 if you do not have 3D Touch technology.
In this regard, given the great potential that Android has shown its expanded notifications, we have seen how the guys at Apple have managed to evolve positively iOS 10 . The developers of the new version of iOS have included a new design for notifications "enriched" we can see both the lock screen and the notifications panel.
Although in this sense we must clarify that in order to enjoy the full potential of these notifications we have a 3D Touch screen, at least in this version of IOS 10. Thanks to this evolution, through a touch gesture, we can preview the notifications we have on display and can answer any type of message or come to see where our cast goes in real time without having to unlock the device.
In the case of Android N, we find that their notifications are much more expanded than ever and are nicely grouped by application, something that does not happen in iOS where notifications are displayed individually for each alert. As a result, we have the option to answer or archive emails one by one, even fully read mail without having to leave the notification bar.
Although both systems have very interesting options that greatly simplify the task of consulting and answering our notifications, we must say that Android N has the best level in its history in this regard. Still, we can not deny the possibility of this large number of tasks without having to leave the lock screen is a success by both systems.
Action Center vs Notifications panel
In this effort to simplify the most of every task and allowing us to do certain things without having to unlock the device, both companies pose somewhat different options.
On the one hand, we see that iOS has the well known Action Center that unfolds at the bottom of the screen, which is welcome given the considerable size with the terminals and how complicated the task of handling presents with one hand. From here, we will be able to access certain settings such as Bluetooth, WiFi connection or airplane mode, among others, but we can get more out if we have a 3D Touch screen.
With the arrival of the new iOS 10 users will have the option to control the music from this panel or an application can search directly from the notification bar or desktop widgets.
In this sense, Android N does not have a control center as such, but we have a panel of very complete notifications, but this time it is deployed from the top of the device, which could be a bit uncomfortable for users handle when, for reasons of size. In it we find the ability to access a lot of settings that you can modify as you want (within permitted), being superior to the solution we proposed the new Apple iOS 10.
¿Android iOS No. 10? Opinion
If we consider that both operating systems are in beta, we must say it is quite difficult to choose between one or the other as the clear winner of this interesting duel. Both iOS and Android 10 N have features and options that make them unique but the fact of not being in their final versions will not let us assess its performance properly, but it will come.
Android is still superior in terms of customization, but the arrival of IOS 10 has made it clear he does not think being left behind and has been updated in terms of notifications. On the other hand, we see that the control is more complete rapid adjustments in Android, because it includes several options to control certain parameters, but will not have the ability to control music playback.
The arrival of the new iOS 10 ha equipped devices apple more likely than Android in the lock screen , and while both are at the same level in terms of notifications displayed, the possibility to search for applications directly from here you It gives a point to Apple.
So different and similar at the same time, so they are iOS 10 Android N, two mobile operating systems that have evolved in a really amazing way over the years and, today, are able to continue to surprise users with new features and options that make it much easier to holders of a mobile terminal. And for you, what is the winner, Android or iOS N 10?
