Do you know which iOS features are already available on Android? Well, we do.

Aside from the new features added to iOS, it is obvious that a plethora of some of the new features in Apple's latest mobile operating system were taken from the Android. These features are not new and have been available for awhile.

 

iCloud Photo Library vs Google + Photos

The new iCloud Photo Library allows photos to be automatically stored in the cloud and then accessed from your device. Similarly, Android users have Google + Photos that automatically syncs all photos in the cloud.

Hi Siri vs OK, Google

The iOS 8 also features improvements to Apple's voice assistant Siri by adding 22 new languages. It is also capable of song recognition, streaming voice recognition and the purchase of iTunes goodies. Now the user can launch Siri by speaking the phrase “Hey Siri.” On the other hand, Android users can launch Google Now by speaking the phrase “OK, Google.”

iCloud Drive

Another feature introduced by Apple is the iCloud Drive, a service for storing documents. For awhile, Android users have been using Google drive, apart from Dropbox. What makes Google Drive better is the storage space. While Google provides 15GB for free, iCloud offers 5GB of free space, while Dropbox is limited to 2GB free space.
