To choose Android or iOS is an incessant debate! The rivalry between the two mobile app platforms is evident when appreneurs could not decide alone which platform to opt for i.e. which one will be more advantages to them in attracting the end users and keeping them hooked. While they leave the task of deciding it to the development companies, there are certain factors considering which can help themselves to decide the same.
However, the competition between the duo platforms iOS and Android is inevitable with iOS grasping more of the market share in Australia, and other advanced countries. So, here’s a list of the core reasons behind why Apple apps are in the first place.
#1 Matchless App quality
First of all, iOS apps are more businesslike and sophisticated ones. The iOS platform provides an unparalleled experience to the users in the niches, like health, media, food-delivery, personal utilities, games, which are now the mainstays of the app industry.
#2 More consumer acceptance
If you consider the revenue models of both the platforms, then definitely Android gives a stiff competition to iOS. It has a greater proportion of Ad-sponsored app while iOS apps depend primarily on the purchases. Although iOS app’s revenue relies predominantly on payments by users, they still manage to grab more revenue because of higher Indexed consumed spend.
#3 Agile Development speed
It has always been a prime concern for app owners that how fast their app can reach the market, iOS takes much less time. Simply put, iOS app does not have to pass through the meticulous system release cycles, called fragmentation. Android apps go through it, as they are targeted to an array of devices running on the OS, with huge differences in the screen sizes, device performance and specialities.
Simply put, the release cycle of an iOS app being shorter, they have much greater acceptance by the developers.
#4 Advanced features-set of iOS devices
The features or functionalities, available on the Android devices are surely not comparable with that of iPhones and iPad. The advanced features-set of iOS devices coupled with great storage capacity and fast processing speed, take the functioning of the app to a whole new level.
#5 Win-win market statistics
Not only from the technical point of view, demographics tell us about the winning situation of the iOS apps. No doubt, both are in a neck-and-neck race, iOS users statistics are more appealing with more percentage of young-age users, greater engagement rate, more income, and greater technical skills/higher education. So, obviously, iOS users will be spending more time on an app.
Apparently, from the business perspective, if you are considering to embark on your app business, then go for iOS platform. Not only the development is less complex and will take less time to reach the market, iPhone/iPad apps are easy-to-use and run smoothly, giving users a greater satisfaction.
