Apple Executives Blast Android

Sep 23 2013, 5:50pm CDT | by

Android, from Google, is currently the most popular mobile computing platform in the world. At a conference, Apple executives were heard insulting several aspects of it.

Even with the releases of the new iPhone 5 models and iOS 7, many believe that mobile app developers will place more focus on developing for Android and less for the iPhone. The result would be that iPhones become less popular, just like what happened in the 1990s when PC became the most popular platform, leaving Apple computers in the dust. Apple executives do not appear to be so worried about something like that happening to the company again. Instead, they are taking verbal shots that the competition.

Apple CEO Tim Cook, along with Jony Ive and Craig Federighi had much to say about Android as they sought to explain why iOS is better, seeming to ignore the Google platform’s overwhelming popularity when compared to iOS. They called Android ‘fragmented’, basically saying that it shows up everywhere and is not “one thing”. As proof they cite that it shows up for users that no longer have access to the apps. According to these executives, this is what will keep Android from following in the successful footprints of Windows and it is an experience iOS users don’t have.

They also said Android phones simply do not get used as much by their owners, and that iPhones gets used more. This means that iPhone users tend to spend more time playing around with their phones that those who have Android devices. The words of the Apple executives are that customer satisfaction for the Android is lower than for the iPhone. The problem, they claim, is that Android uses useless technology, making for a less –enjoyable user experience.
