Apple displayed some over the top innovations and updates to their new upcoming operating system, iOS 8, at the World Wide Developers Conference last night. A bunch of new features that will be available for iPhones and iPads in the near future. But funny enough, these new “updates” seem rather familiar – a little too familiar if you ask me. It seems like Apple has almost “borrowed” certain features from Android and a bunch of other popular systems and apps, to only reinvent them and give them that Apple touch.
Alright, lets take a look at what they had in store for us.The Spotlight search was one of Apple’s latest updates as it now allows you to search the web as well. Sounds familiar? Pretty sure Androids’ search tool has been able to do that for a while now.
Apples’ new iOS 8 will now allow you to save your widgets in your notification center. Wonder where they got that idea from as Android has always had that capability of having widgets.
Almost identical to Dropbox and Google Drive, Apples’ iCloud Drive grants you access to a storage space online which works for iPhone, iPad and even Windows PCs.
But let’s face it, at the end of the day, Apple has just resumed the throne, having the actual capability of crushing their long lasting rival Android. Why? Because every popular feature that’s available in Androids’ operating system, is now available in a more sophisticated, sleek and overall better phone, the iPhone.
