He is talking about switching between apps. That's not multitasking, it's just switching between apps. Anyway this is also something Android can do much better.

I constantly run 10 apps at the same time on my iPhone (I have 80 apps that want permission, I only let 30+the system apps that I can't control).

option for expandable storage. REASON: it's cheaper to buy a microSD than paying more for a bigger built-in capacity. I don't care if microSD is slower. All I want is to STORE all old files like pics, vids etc. 64gb (built-in) + 256gb or higher microSD is the way to go.

Honestly speaking...some of y'all reasons don't make sense at all...only thing y'all should be complaining about is..... nothing!!

My list is long for my Max. one thing that needs to be added, is Qualcomm modems.

That's a hardware component and has nothing to do with the software. You should wait for the FTC vs. QC trial to end and see if Apple updates the drivers of the modem; tests in the labs have shown that Intel are on par with QC modems so maybe it's just the software that stops the modem from infringing on QC patents. In Europe neither Max or the other iPhones have any issues with the modems.

Did the article specifically mention software only?

The title says "parts of Android" and Android is the software.
