Top 5 features iOS 14 stole from Android

Mobile
Yeah, we're going there. These are the top five features iOS 14 stole from Android. So many people are seeing the new iOS and getting a sense of deja vu. A lot of these amazing new Apple features have been around for a long time on another major phone platform. Let's see the best features iOS 14 stole from Android. Well, not stole, because Android still has them, copied would be better. But views. Also, don't worry, Apple lovers, I've got some choice words for Google in here as well. Picture in picture on the iPhone, what a spectacular idea, I love it. It's been on TVs for a very long time. It's been on Android phones since Android Oreo, which is from the ancient days of 2017. Now iOS did have picture and picture in iOS nine. That feature was iPad only. iPhones will get it with iOS 14. Does Apple do it better than Google? Sure does. For whatever reason, you cannot resize the video player on Android. Apple thought, what if we gave users a choice to resize the player window? Yeah, good idea. But good news, Android people. If you get Android 11, you should be able to resize that window. It took Google three revisions to figure this out. And that all depends on whether you get Android 11. Shout out to see scott brown at Android authority. He wrote a story with the headline, iPhone six s getting iOS 14 is like the galaxy s6 getting Android 11. Imagine that. So for a lot of Android users like me, we will never get Android 11 on our current phones. [MUSIC] App quads. It's a weird name, but it's super functional. The idea is, if you need an app, for a particular thing like parking, or a way to order food, you don't need to download the whole app, to do what you need to do. Instead, you scan a QR code, or use NFC with your phone, then you can instantly use a smaller version of the app. They gives you the functions you need at the time. You basically skip the pain of finding the app in the store. Installing the app, setting up an account payments, whatever. You're up and running things two and a half clip that has to be at max 10 megabytes. If you were using 3G Wireless That would take around 11 seconds at a rate of 7.2 megabits per second to get a 10 megabyte file. If you're on LTE, it could take as long as one second, assuming an 80 megabit per second rate Instant Apps. Brilliant. Google introduced Instant Apps in 2016. In a demo, we saw a guy from Google show off pulling up a BuzzFeed tasty recipe in an instant app without having the full app installed. links from B&H in search could lead to be an HS app. Payment is a breeze, because you have Google pay setup, right? As we all know, Google and developers did a great job implementing this feature. And we all use it every day. The feature was opt in for web links. Otherwise, you still had to go to the Play Store, find the app and then hit the trade option. Brilliant. App clips will be one of those features that once Google has a good version of it. People will call Instant Apps to copy. Apple's app drawer. Sure Apple calls it an app library. But we all know what it is. You get the ability to hide pages on your home screen. If you want to find your apps, you can look at the app. App library. Or search in this snazzy scrollable alphabetic list. Great idea that's been on Android forever. This is like when the iPhone got cut and paste in iPhone OS 3.0 great feature. What took you so long? [MUSIC] In IOS 14 you will have the ability to select third party browsers and the email apps. As your default, that means if you don't wanna use Safari or Apple Mail, you don't have to. When you open up links, you could be opening them up with brave Firefox or Chrome by default. When you're trying to contact someone, you will not have to copy the email address and open up your non Apple Mail app. Again, choice has been a critical difference between IOS and Android I applaud Apple for doing this, and hope it'll let people also choose their default music, maps and maybe even assistant apps. One idea. What's coming up Home Screen widgets, instead of Apple's bizarre implementation of widgets that were on their own screen. iOS 14 finally gives users the ability to pin widgets on a page That allows you to get more done, without having to go into the app and then back out. You can just look at these little tiles of information. Where have I seen that before? Hi Windows Phone, breaking the fourth wall. Android has had widgets from the very beginning in 2008. However, they aren't exactly standardized. That means you can have round widgets. Square widgets, rectangular widgets, different shapes. It kind of looked like the widgets that Apple came up with for dashboard on os 10 Tiger, pour one out for confabulating. If you remember that, let me know in the comments. However, Apple's new version of widgets and IOS 14 is standardized. There are a limited selection of shapes that would fit in nicely with the familiar home screen of old Also the idea of having a swappable widget area called widget stacks. It's pretty brilliant. So to sum up everything IOS 14 looks like a great version of my jailbroken iPhone six. Well done. Do you think that Apple was really copying Android? Does it even really matter? if Apple copied Android enough? Would you switch. I mean guaranteed updates for years, sounds pretty good.
