Android V/S Apple (or to be more precise Android V/S iOS) both of these company has created a great influence on the world of SmartPhone. In simple, both of them have served the world with a lot of great features but whenever it comes to the security between the two great mobile OS the topic get to be controversial.
However before going deep on this topic lets just understand the basic difference between the working of Android V/S Apple iOS.
Android V/S Apple iOS
Android a Linux based operating system and a partly open source which belong to Google.Inc. It was originally developed by Android.Inc and later on it was acquired by Google in 2005. As per the report of 2016, Android dominates 87% of worldwide market. And the best part of Android OS is that its open source and highly customizable and which eventually means that by customizing we can use it over any hardware and there’s no need for a specific hardware. Whereas, moving on to Apple iOS the scenario is bit change. iOS a mobile-based operating system which is created and developed by Apple.Inc and is exclusively for Apple hardware including iPhone,iPad and iPod Touch. As per 2016, report it acquires the worldwide market by just 13%.
Which is more secure Android or iOS?
As on May 2017, Google Play has over 2,200,000 whereas Apple App Store has over 2,700,000 apps on their stores but still a large number of apps isn’t the factor. The factors that effect is the app selection process.
We get almost every app for free and the process of developing an app for android is quite simple and to the selection process due to which we find lot many of useless app available on the android store which contains a lot of security bugs.
And adding on it we too make our security weak by installing the mode or cracked version of premium games and apps from the untrusted source.
Whereas iOS believe on providing a quality product and has a strict app selection process due to which we find best of the quality apps and fewer bugs. And due to which more number of developers switch to Android App Store.
