Tim Cook took the stage at WWDC 2015 and announced the latest iteration of Apple’s mobile OS, iOS 9, along with other software-related product and in this AW Center article we are going to discuss if any of the iOS 9 features are already available on Android or Android users should envy Apple fan boys.
iOS 9 Features Available on Android:
1. Split View and Picture in Picture
Finally iPad users are able to use 2 applications at the same time on their 10-inch (or 8-inch) screen. While the stock Android doesn’t come with spilt screen feature, but companies like Samsung and LG have already added this multi-tasking feature to their phones and tablets.
But what about the Picture in Picture feature, which scales down the video screen to let you run another application while watching the video? Well, Pop-Up Play on Samsung Galaxy devices rings a bell?
2. Low Power Mode
3. Proactive assistant
Suppose you have added a meeting to your calendar, and on the iOS 9 you’ll be reminded about the event and you are suggested when to leave considering the meeting’s time and location. Haven’t you tried Google Now for this purpose?
5. Nearby Places and Transit View on Maps
Apple proudly announced its new feed and news reader service, News, but who hasn’t heard of Flipboard, Magazine, Socialife News or BlinkFeed already developed by Android manufacturers?
So, do you envy the iOS 9 or not? Can you think of more iOS 9 features available on Android for a long time?
