Why Android Oreo has nothing to do against iOS 11

Google has just announced the name of the long awaited Android 8.0 , the new Android update that comes to battle as strong as possible against iOS 11. The new software from Cupertino brings news that make it the best software for smartphone that exists. At least, so far.

We can not doubt the importance of Android in the technological landscape , the most fragmented operating system in the world. The most used, the most customizable. But, it is not the simplest and much less the most apparent. Already exist betas of both versions, you want to know why iOS 11 gives a thousand returns to Android Oreo?

The two most important operating systems tested: iOS 11 and Android Oreo

The first thing that we can highlight of these updates, is that none brings a substantial change in their software. They are subtle improvements and in the code that make us appreciate even more the use of our smartphone in the day to day.

We are in the technological moment where everything is a battle , << - You have removed this >> << - But you to me this too! >>. Being the competition between two companies can be expected that both Android and iOS have functionalities that the other does not, but are fundamental to the use of a smartphone. This causes that from time to time, let's witness the incorporation of an Android functionality that we already had in iOS, or the introduction to iOS of an improved Android functionality.

Project Treble

Android is one of the most used operating systems in the world, but also one of the most fragmented. There are very few users - 10% - who have Android Nougat, even possessing a high-end device. To do this they have decided to separate the Android core from the software added by the manufacturers, greatly facilitating the task of upgrading to higher versions of Android.

In iOS, this is not even necessary . The company itself is responsible for making their updates as compatible as possible with their previous devices, slowing down as much as possible the obsolescence of their devices in terms of updates. In addition, there is only one manufacturer: Apple.

Control center

In iOS 11, the new control center allows you to view the settings on a single panel , rearrange them and place them as you wish. This adds to its 3D Touch makes it a real control panel, where we can activate, deactivate or go to concrete functions quickly.

In Android we must go through a series of gestures, to open the corresponding panel. Once in this, with certain adjustments we can find that we need to open its section in the app settings to be able to configure them well. In summary, in Android activate settings can not be done quickly and easily.

Siri vs. Google Assistant

Siri has been with us for a long time, it had a slow start in which it grew like foam in just a year, becoming a portent of artificial intelligence, giving funny and satirical answers and finding everything we asked for. In addition, this year adds the possibility of being able to talk to her through text , that is, it will not be necessary to speak with her in public places.

While Google Assistant is just the birth of something , we do not know how it will grow. But at the moment is very green, Apple takes many years of advantages to Google in this regard. The laurels have fallen asleep!

Record screen

Although this is a functionality that Android users have always had: record the screen, this is given by third-party applications. In the case of iOS 11 we find a native functionality , free of watermarks, that allows users to record something from their screen to perform tutorials on some function to a friend or relative.

Not forgetting the boom of content creation, iOS being the favorite platform to play , being able to record your games makes the iPhone and iPad even more desirable.


There is always something that iOS can improve, although we are going to talk about a function that not many need, it is an improvement and we must highlight it. Android Oreo has introduced the possibility of delaying receiving a notification if we do not want to open it now and we want to remind you later. In iOS 11 this possibility does not exist and is something that, perhaps, we see in future updates of iOS.


The enormous rivalry between the two operating systems has been demonstrated, they are two big ones with much route. But in the end we all want iOS as our operating system, its ecosystem makes it one of the most robust systems ever created. Are you looking forward to iOS 11 already?
