History and Versions of iOS

No comments :


You must have often heard of the iPhone name is mentioned, but not so for iOS. In fact, the two are completely inseparable. So what is the actual iOS? Do not be confused, we will discuss it from the beginning.

What's iOS?
To answer these questions, we can be likened iOS as Windows. Only if Windows is for PCs and laptops, iOS is designed for the iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch.

Basically iOS is a mobile operating system like Android, so we can also think of it as the life of the device. Functionally both are very similar, but the way it works is very different. One example, there is a term in the Android application launcher, whereas in iOS is not; all the application's icon will be displayed on the main screen (homescreen).

The second difference is quite striking is that Android was developed by the open-source concept, whereas closed iOS developed by Apple itself, without any outside interference.

However, since iOS 9, Apple has been little change and become more 'open' for application developers. The latest version of the iOS features introduced in the Notification Center widget. As we know, the widget is one of the security features of Android for several years.

The presence of the widget is also unlock the potential of iOS becomes more widely with the help of third party applications. Using the application Launch Center Pro for example, iOS users can basically get the features in the Notification Center app launcher, or even a quick access to activate certain functions in a variety of applications.

The third difference, iOS does not recognize the "Back", usually symbolized by an arrow to the left in Android, either in the form of physical or virtual buttons. IOS devices only have one button "Home" alone, whose function is to exit the application.

There are many advantages and disadvantages of these differences. Therefore, it is very difficult to argue which one is better because of the way it works have been very, very different.
