Top 5 features iOS should steal from Android

Mobile Apps
Apple could learn a lesson or two from Google for its next IOS update. Here are the top 5 features IOS should steal from Android as compiled by CNET editor Vanessa Han Oriana. At number 5. Bilingual support. Sending messages in more than one language on IOS can be an autocorrect nightmare. Sure you can set up keyboards in different languages, but you'll have to remember to switch manually every time that you start a conversation. And with Siri even a foreign sounding street name is subject to interpretation. When it comes to voice recognition there is no match for Google Now. Number 4, better Control Center. Apple borrowed this idea from Android a few years ago, but it's still not up to snuff. For starters even though it's called Control Center you pretty much have no control as to what shows up in this section unless you jailbreak your phone. On Android you can have up to two pages of shortcuts and even long press on icons to give you more options. At number three, multiple user accounts. People's phone and tablet becoming their real personal computer. The problem comes in when you want your loan your Apple device to someone else. You have to really trust them. Not to mess around on your iPhone or iPad. Android has had multiple users for their Lollipop which is back in 2014. Maybe Apple can even tie in touch I-D to multiple user support. And number two, changing default apps. Apple has a death grip on what apps can be launched by default. Over on Android, you can select any browser, any maps app, or even any launcher as your default one. It'd be amazing if I could click and address link in Safari and it would take me to the Google Maps app. And Apple. Don't worry. If your apps are the best, people will gladly use them. At number one instant apps. Google recently announced its new instant app feature, which lets you use an app without actually installing it on your phone. You're probably thinking, wait I can just download the app, what's the big deal? Well, what if you have a 16 gigabyte iPhone and you're running out of room? Also, some Apps are really useful for a certain time period, but don't really need to live on your phone all the time. Do you always need that parking meter App when you rarely drive? No. The answer is no. Get outta here. Remember, go to artist copy. great art Steel. Like the great Rickey Henderson. As for what Android could learn from iOS. We'll cover that in the future. I'm Iyaz Akhtar and I'll see you online. [MUSIC]
