While Apple revolutionized the way people use their smartphones with the launch of the App Store, other companies have quickly tried to catch up. The strongest competitor is Google’s Android, but according to new data, iOS users are still investing more of their money and time in apps.
Following several months of beta testing over the summer, Google on Wednesday unveiled the latest version of its mobile operating system in Android 5.0 Lollipop. The new software version will make its debut on the just-announced Nexus 6 smartphone, Nexus 9 tablet and Nexus Player streaming device, with wider availability in the coming weeks.
The performance benchmark results published by AnandTech yesterday revealed that Apple’s newest flagship handsets once again perform quite well across the board.
Last month, we shared a story that revealed seven different ways that Chinese handset maker Xiaomi has blatantly copied Apple. The undeniable similarities have led many to label Xiaomi as the latest Apple copycat, a title that is usually reserved for Samsung. Xiaomi doesn’t seem to care much about this criticism, however, moving forward with its new MIUI 6 skin that looks awfully familiar to iOS.
