    What Android Has That iOS Has Not (Yet)

    Android is open and customizable. iOS is closed, designed for ease. But iPhone users are maturing, demanding more personalization, and Apple might give it to them at WWDC. At D11, Tim Cook said “I think you will see us open up more in the future, but not to the degree that we put the customer at risk of having a bad experience.” Here we’ll look at some Android options Apple could unlock for iOS.

    I agree with John Gruber when he speaks of how the average smartphone user has matured. “The design of the iPhone software was entirely informed by the fact that this was a new experience. It needed training wheels. Look around you. We all get it now. iOS-style computing is no longer novel. The training wheels can now come off.” 2007 is very different from 2013 in terms of our mobile literacy, and it’s time iOS reflected that.

    Apple’s concern is likely that novice users might download and install an interface-changing app and not know how to remove it — “a bad experience.” Apple would need to determine how to reconfirm configuration changes with users such that veterans don’t get annoyed but newbies don’t get stuck.

    If it can strike the right balance, some new capabilities iOS users might gain include:

    • KEYBOARD REPLACEMENT
    • WIDGETS
    • PHONE APP MODIFICATIONS
    • HOMESCREEN / LAUNCHER REPLACEMENTS
    • CROSS-APP FUNCTIONALITY, DATA SHARING, AND DEFAULTS
    • MULTI-USER SUPPORT

    Hey Jeremy, I have read your question which is very nice but as per the your question concern you would like to know about Android and iOS. As per the keyboard replacement concern I would like to say that this feature is available in iOS but not in Android.
