Comparison between Android P and iOS 12

Although they are still in the development phase, so some of the functions that will be integrated into the final version are not yet available, the main mobile operating systems, Android and iOS, finalize their implementation with all of the law. In recent years, it is true, they have begun to resemble each other more and more. Not only aesthetically, but at a conceptual level where you can appreciate how one has been inspired by their competence to strengthen their ecosystem. There are differences such as Apple’s commitment to augmented reality and notable similarities as the functions to control the time of use.

Performance and Battery consumption

Under the hood, both iOS 12 and Android P have opted to tighten the nuts and get more performance. The objective of both is that their management is more optimal, regardless of the hardware. Apple, in this case, and in the face of shaking criticism, has managed to squeeze to the maximum its platform that can be downloaded even in the iPhone 5S, a terminal that went on sale in 2013. Extending this support it is possible to expand the lifespan of your devices.

For its part, Google has promised that the next version of its operating system will come with an improvement in battery consumption. To do this, they will create a function called “Adaptive Battery”, which makes use of “automatic learning” so that the resources of the system are prioritized and focus on the applications that most interest each user. That, a priori, will mean that autonomy extends somewhat, although it will also depend on the use given. The management of energy resources will undoubtedly be a constant, especially since the technology prevailing in lithium-ion batteries makes it difficult to extend their duration at this time.

Further Control on notifications

One of the small evolutions necessary (or demanded by its users) of iOS 12 has been the grouping of notifications. At last. A view that Android had it better resolved. With this version, users can consult them in a more intuitive way. As for Android P, this platform seeks simplicity and introduces a new way to navigate the interface and schedule specific notices.

This version has relocated the search bar, which will appear at the bottom. When you drag it up, under it will appear the “apps” that are part of the prediction. Among other novelties, there will also be a configurable feature that degrades the colours until the screen is grey, as an alert that it is late.

The objective, therefore, is to prioritize an improvement in visibility and notifications. How? It is true that as we accumulate applications, we also accumulate alerts everywhere, many of them unnecessary and dispensable. Although at a visual level will not mean major changes, the operating system will allow you to show conversations, attach images, add “stickers” or schedule automatic responses in a more agile way.

Interface and adaptation to new Notch trend

At the visual level, Android P will offer a clean and austere image, although it will not mean a drastic change with the current version. In addition, it is the case that given the high compatibility of numerous mobile phone manufacturers the operating system must adapt not only to each type of terminal but to the different customization capable that the manufacturers incorporate. Hence, some of the functions are different depending on the model.

But, in this case, and anticipating the movements that are taking place in the sector, Android will be compatible with mobiles that incorporate a “tab” or “notch” at the top of the screen. A controversial feature that debuted in the Essential Phone but Apple has popularized thanks to the iPhone X. Hence the changes in this beta include the implementation of new APIs to improve the support of screens with clipping “notch”, more useful and stable notifications, which offer the possibility of showing conversations, attaching photos or suggesting intelligent answers.

With iOS 12, Apple has it easier. At the moment, only in the iPhone X has this “eye-track” and does not have to find solutions for the platform to adapt to other types of devices. Where there has apparently been no further change is at the aesthetic level, which remains virtually the same as iOS 11 with the exception of some new applications such as “shortcuts”, a service by which users can program shortcuts to interact with the voice assistant Siri.
