In an ideal world, of course, there would be more than two contenders for any major buying decision. In smartphones, Windows Phone and Windows 10 Mobile have been left to wither by Microsoft, Blackberry OS 10 got canned a few years ago, and the mass of ‘alternative’ phone operating systems comprise a fraction of one percent of all phone sales and can be ignored completely. But I do find the opposing worlds of iOS and Android fascinating. In some ways similar – both have app launchers and support all modern apps – but in other ways worlds apart, in terms of flexibility and openness. Can there be an overall winner?

Google Opinion Rewards has been available on Android since quite some time. This service allows users to earn quick bucks by taking short surveys on a wide range of topics, mostly related to apps or your favorite TV shows, movies etc. Well, this service is now making its way to iOS, allowing customers to earn up to $1 per survey. Since the surveys are short, they can be taken practically anywhere and won’t take more than 30 seconds of your time in most cases. Surveys aren’t sent frequently, however, and you might have to wait days or even weeks between surveys.
Apple unveiled the latest version of iOS, iOS 11, at WWDC 2017 Keynote earlier today and it comes with a number of new features and improvements, including peer-to-peer payments in Apple Pay, redesigned Lock screen, Control Center, and Notification Center, Siri support for new languages, an all-new design for the App Store, and much more.
A new bug which causes an iPhone to freeze thereby forcing users to restart their device has been discovered in iOS. The bug affects almost all iPhones out there and is present in the latest beta of iOS 10.3.2 as well.
With Apple seeding the iOS 10.3 update last night, a handful of global carriers have enabled support for Wi-Fi Calling and VoLTE on their networks. This is a big upgrade for many carriers who were previously limited to standard cellular and VoIP calls.
