KitKat VS iOS

An operating system is the soul of a technological product. The performance and features of the phone are dependent on its operating system.

The iOS operating system is dedicated for the Apple products only. On the contrary, the Android devices use the KitKat operating system which is a product of Google. There are many versions of both the operating systems released so far. The KitKat’s latest version in the market is KitKat 4.4 and the Apple iOS latest version is iOS 7.1. Both these versions got released last year.

iOS Features

Simplicity is the major element of iOS 7. Things are very professionally arranged and managed to facilitate the user with the ease of using the product. These things become evident to the customer as soon as he grabs any Apple product.

The first thing we experience on an Apple product is its lock screen. It is a lot more advanced than it looks. Swiping down the screen displays the Notification centre and swiping in the opposite direction displays the Control Centre. Further, the lock screen has also got a Camera option which makes its lock screen so much full of useful options.

The icons at the Home screen are large enough in size with proper labeling. Installing the app from the Apple store is quite easy and flexible. The camera, map, and other utility features are top quality with very easy access.

KitKat Features

On the contrary, the KitKat operating system from Google is a bit complex but with exceptional features and qualities. It can be a difficult thing for a first time user, but soon when the customer gets familiar with the KitKat settings, he enjoys using the product as much as anything.

The KitKat lock screen is very simple with not many options. It just asks the user to pull the ring and you are then ready to operate the phone. Further, the KitKat operating system gives instant chat service option with automatic caller ID to locate the nearby services. It has a modified run time (ART) feature which basically helps in quick loading of the application and it is also good in saving battery life. The KitKat operating system is now part of a lot of Smartphone.

Unlike the iOS, which is dedicated for Apple products, KitKat is used by almost all of the Android phone manufacturers. KitKat is used in major company releases like HTC, Sony, Samsung, LG, and Motorola devices.

Conclusively, the iOS and KitKat are both great operating systems with exceptional qualities. It is just the preference of the user that with which platform he is more comfortable. Or, which product is more suitable for him also determines the choice of the user. Most of the people just choose the Smartphone by its looks and brand name and not by its operating system which can be problematic later on. The phone should be chosen with all the features in mind with the operating system given the top consideration. Luckily, most of the Android phones are coming with KitKat now and Apple’s reputation is good enough to impress users with its iOS.
