Apple Has Copied Google in Many Ways, Says Google's Android Chief

Is it apples and oranges, or apples and apples? I'll let you be the judge of that, especially if you have switched from iOS to Android. At the recent Apple's Worldwide Developers Conference 2014, Apple CEO Tim Cook unveiled a bag of goodies that iOS users will be happy about. Seems oh-so-sweet, unless you work for Android, in which case the news has a distinctly bitter flavour. Many features that Apple presented at the conference are already part of Android and have been for a while now.

 

Google's Chief of the Android division, Sundar Pichai, shared his thoughts on Apple's WWDC announcements in an interview with Bloomberg Businessweek. Pichai made it clear that many of Apple's features, which were presented as new, such as the third-party keyboards, widgets, and richer notifications, have been available on Android for a few years.

While there are similarities between the two operating systems, Pichai mentions the substantial differences in the direction Apple's and Android's OS’s are headed. Apple designs software that is exclusive to its own devices, so the iOS can only be found on the iPhones and iPads.

 

Google, on the contrary, develops software that comes in many smartphones and tablets from various manufacturers, like Samsung Electronics, HTC, and Motorola.

In a recent statistics report by IDC, the research company forecasts that by the end of the year, Android could take up 80.2% of the smartphone market worldwide, while Apple is estimated to account for only 14.8% of the market share.

 

I guess there's no more room to compare Apple and Google. It's not too difficult to tell the difference anyways, right?
