True But Its Nice To See Ios Evolving And Becoming Better. And Even Though They Share Some Of The Same Features Both Have Different Approaches.

Some people are pretty sure that live wallpaper in IOS is something revolutionary and incredible.

some of these surprised me by being new features, just serving to show what iOS hasn't been able to do. i.e. a lot of stuff important for productivity.

Seriously .. I wonder what you could do in older versions than even iOS 8! Make calls?

Zoomin while playing video and low power mode are the best ones in my opinion.

Finally some nice additions copied from Android, time to update :D Who cares what features are copied from whom, I don't run the company and profit either way.

"Who cares what features are copied from whom" Every fanboy care about that. They cry when Android implement something already used in IOS, but they are happy as hell when Apple does the same thing.... It blows my mine.

I wouldn't mind Android getting some iOS features, like lockscreen notifications back then, since I also use a Nexus. As I said, just let them copy each other, I profit either way, and I bet other end users too, which count in all the fanboys lol. It just bewilders me how low one's self esteem has to be that they have to defend their purchase so much...

I used low power mode already. I can tell you, it's bullsh*t. Power still consumed the same without the feature.

I have no words, iOS couldn't do these things before this? really? android has had most of this stuff for ages. Apple is insanely good at marketing to be able to sell their product that is feature wise behind the times by quite a bit.

After all this years cannot believe you still asking those kinds of questions..

I can't help but be surprised each time something 'new'/'smart'/'innovative' is added to Apple devices and is marketed like the next best thing and people flock to it believe it and whatnot, I just....can't wrap my head around it I suppose :(

The difference with what we call Android is that in iOS it is perfect.
