Apple recently announced the next version of its mobile operating system – iOS 7. The newly introduced Apple mobile OS offers a radical new look and great new features like quick-access system controls, automatic app updates, AirDrop file-sharing system for iOS, and smarter multitasking. The introduction of iOS 7 is the biggest change to iOS since the introduction of the iPhone.
Apple’s newly announced operating system takes on Android, Windows Phone, and BlackBerry. Android is the biggest rival to iOS 7, currently running with Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean. On the other hand Blackberry devices are also running on the newly designed Blackberry 10 operating system. The main features of iOS 7, Android 4.2, Windows Phone 8 and Blackberry 10 operating systems are compared in the post.
Here is a feature-wise comparison of iOS 7 with Android 4.2, Windows Phone 8 and BlackBerry 10.
Apple iOS 7 and Blackberry 10 are limited to iDevices and BB devices, respectively. On the other hand Android is powering a large number of devices. There are not so many Windows Phone 8 powered devices in the market.
We can’t choose any specific winner among these operating systems, but iOS 7 will continue to formidably challenge Google, Microsoft, and BlackBerry with its eye-catching visual design and its total haul of features. It is all about choice of the users over the smart phone device they buy. So which mobile OS you will prefer? Share your views via comments.
