IOS 11 vs Android Oreo: that's how its best features

Whatever operating system you have, you will soon receive an update that will greatly change your user experience . If you have an Android terminal, hopefully soon you can upgrade to Android 8.0 Oreo and if yours is an iPhone, you know that iOS 11 will arrive in September.

Although neither Android Oreo nor iOS 11 are official yet , we have been months and months looking for betas that help us get a pretty accurate idea of ​​what they will be like, so we want to compare the main characteristics of each one so that you have the keys to both operating systems .

Multitasking and Productivity 

In iOS 11, Apple seems to have taken the iPad seriously and it shows . With the 6 videos recently published on how it will affect your new operating system to the tablet of the apple bite you can see that productivity is on another level in terms of ease and speed: split screen, task switching, improved dock and fluid Movement from one app to another

However, if you have an iPhone, you'll hardly notice any differences outside of Files and some improvements implemented in Notes and Mail. For us to understand, multitasking on iPhone is still a chimera.

Android Oreo has not brought great news in this sense , but because it really did not require either: there was already a function to split the screen on all your devices in Android Nougat that has been improved in Android 8.0.

Speaking of multitasking, in Android Oreo have a functionality called "Picture-in-picture" that lets you view videos in a floating way, being able to choose the size and area of ​​the screen where it will appear and that is enabled for both tablets and phones.

Although Apple introduced something similar on iPad in iOS 9, this possibility does not exist on iPhone and is only found on newer iPad models (for example, 4th generation iPad does not include this feature).


Android has taken action on the matter in something truly blatant of its operating system: the updates. And being present in so many multi-brand devices, it is not surprising that it is so fragmented that these are difficult or simply impossible. With Project Treble , Google separates the core Android from the software added by the manufacturers , greatly facilitating the task of upgrading to higher versions of Android.

Needless to say, in iOS this was not necessary . Apple manufactures its devices and develops updates compatible with all its terminals (except, of course, those that declare obsolete), making sure that everyone updates as soon as possible.

Control center 

The new iOS 11 control center allows you to view settings on the same panel, rearrange them and place them as you wish. If we also add the features of the 3D Touch, it results in that we have a real control panel of quick and intuitive access to modify the main thing.

In Android 8.0 still it is necessary to make a series of gestures to open the corresponding panel, which in many cases will take us to its menu section adjustments. Of course, much remains to be done in Google's operating system in this regard .


To date, there was no discussion: iOS was light years away from Android in the matter of emoji , but in Google seem to have put the batteries redesigned their yellow faces so they do not look like the last century. In addition, in Oreo we will find 56 new icons.

Another of the successful measures taken by Google is to repair the compatibility problem , so if you send an emoji to an Android user who has an old mobile, there will be no problem.

But Apple will also give war in this direction : many more emojis and adaptation to the Unicode 10.0 update.


Both platforms will renew the way to receive notifications, although it will be Android that has worked the most. With Oreo, Google adds many new ways to group, customize, and interact with notifications . In fact, they have borrowed from iOS the indicators in the apps and 3D Touch gestures that will allow you to get rid of a notification with a long press.

Apple will also implement tweaks that will make a noticeable impact. For example, you have been disposed of your Notifications Center once and for all . Now, we will simply have to slide down to see the lock screen, where we will find the notifications.

Keyboard and autocomplete

Google incorporates something you've been needing, autocompletion . Something that will make life easier when we are in certain apps and do not have to walk typing dozens of times the data and passwords. Of course, iOS had it integrated for quite some time.

In the case of iOS, Apple has made a small but very grateful improvement: adding a keyboard for a single hand .
