Not only is it obvious that Google’s Android operating system is a last-minute ripoff of Apple’s iconic iPhone, but there’s a giant security flaw that is not easily fixed in Android smartphones.
This week I read an interesting statistic that points out a major benefit of using Apple’s iPhone and iPad vs. an Android anything. Just weeks ago iOS 9 topped 90-percent penetration rate among Apple’s mobile device customers. That means more than 90-percent of all iPhones and iPads were running the latest iOS, released just a year ago. Compare that to Android’s Marshmallow, released at about the same time in 2015, which now runs on about 20-percent of all Android devices. Google’s latest Android OS, Nougat, released about the same time as iOS 10, doesn’t even make it to 1-percent.
In other words, Apple keeps customer’s iPhones and iPads easily upgradeable and updatable, but Google and Android cellphone makers and cellphone carriers do not provide a similar option for their customers.
