In this world of gadgets and mobility, you may be classified according to the operating system of the gadgets you plug into your 4-port USB 3.0 docking station. People may perceive you as the ultimate geek if you have the MacBook. Others may see you as a commoner if you have even the latest Android-based gadgets. The Apple versus the rest of the world saga has been going on for some time, but it seems the stakes are higher all the more these days. Especially with both Google and Apple releases new versions of their operating systems at almost the same time.

Comparing the Latest from IOS and Android - Image 1

The latest releases from Apple is the IOS 7, which for people is expected already since Steve Jobâs company does not seem to want to veer away from just using numbers to name their operating systems. On the other hand, Google is continuing with their tradition of naming theirs after sweet desserts; thus we have an Android Ice Cream Sandwich and Jellybean, to name the last two. The latest release couldnât be more blatant: KitKat.

But beyond the names, what do these two releases have to offer their users? Is one overly superior than the other to the point of leaving the inferior one biting the dust? Will it cause mass exoduses of users from one operating system to another? Will you find all your devices to connect to your USB 3.0 docking station all Android or all Apple? Here are some points:
User interface:

IOS 7 vs. KitKat: For IOS 7, the colors seem to be too cheerful for adult and professional users. Google on the other hand has a bit of boring template. But merry colors aside, the redesigned IOS is actually quite minimalist and have added features like the ControlCenter. The Android KitKat home screen is now more customizable, with the drop down menus allowing switching between settings and notifications.


Who wins: Itâs a tie for this category.
Voice commands

IOS 7 vs. KitKat: For IOS 7, you can command to Siri to read the message out loud if you are too busy to read. Google on the other hand can recognize 50 voice commands and it also has Moto X that recognizes, OK Google to bring up Google now.


Who wins: Kitkat wins since it can even answer questions about Sports and some general trivia. It is possible to ask questions that encourage conversation as well. It can also accomplish the usual voice commands like sending messages or asking for locations.
Apps

IOS 7 vs. KitKat: The App drawer of the android looks better that the boring black one. Since the widget was removed pressing the home button is needed to access the app drawer. As for the years 7, apple added a notification center that would indicate calls, messages, schedules, and more. This would be convenient for people who run a busy schedule.


Who wins: The iOS 7 wins since it conserves more energy when other apps are not in use.
