Smartphones

Smartphones these days have so many features, but is anyone actually using them?

Smartphones these days have so many features, but is anyone actually using them?

Once upon a time there was a catchy slogan used by a certain fruit company to prove a point. “There’s an app for that” was more than something just said in endless advertisements. This meant that while iPhones lagged terribly in features compared to Android phones, any app available from Apple’s App Store would undoubtedly make up the difference.

These days, iOS is little more than another version of Android; a reality that becomes more and more apparent from year to year. At least 10 other Android features can be found (opens in a new tab) in iOS 16, and the same story applies almost every year. Sometimes these features are the ones that Google thought weren’t suitable for its best smartphones (opens in a new tab) and deleted years ago. Other times they’re iterations of Google’s approach and getting better.
