iOS vs Android Apps

With the technological advancements, all the devices are going to upgrade in the coming future. So the essential devices which we carry, like mobile phones, laptops, tablet PCs, etc are going to change for sure. With time, the technology working behind the screen is evolving as well. “Although the change is true, the basics behind the logic will be the same.” This is what experts say.  So in case, you’re thinking about mobile apps development, the sooner, the better.


iOS Apps vs Android Apps

In the smartphone industry, the 2 apps are famous, iOS and Android Apps. As we all know that the iOS apps only runs in iOS and Android apps run in Android operation systems. Why do you think so? There must be some logic behind it, right? As the apps will need same input and it’ll give same output on both the platforms, but why can’t they run irrespective of the platform? 

Well, it is because Both operating systems may run on mobile, but they have starkly different architectures and builds. Most iOS apps are written on Objective-C, while Android apps are coded in Java. Objective-C is a general-purpose programming language derived from C, but with an added Smalltalk-style messaging for the extra functionality. Any C language is procedural, so its apps run much faster. However, it’s also a compiled language, making it easier to overlook mistakes in the code.

iOS developers are adopting Swift slowly because of its cleaner syntax. Older iOS versions, however, are not supported.

Android uses Java. As opposed to Objective-C and Swift, Java is an interpreted language. Because it is written in a way that humans can read, it is very easy to learn. Java is the language of choice for a lot of low-code apps. Additionally, this language supports threading, which is excellent for server responsiveness and resource use but can consume a lot of power. Further, Java memory is divided into heaps and stocks. Besides allowing developers to regain lost data quickly, this also helps with memory allocation.
