Development Time and Costs
According to an Infinium report, an Android application needs approximately 28 percent more time to develop than its iOS counterpart. As such, many could imagine that Android developers often charge more to bring their applications to fruition.
This, anecdotally, leads to more outsourced and low-quality development, which in turn makes the problem worse. The fact that Android applications have a reputation for having less quality than iOS apps, finds its answer in the explanation of this problem.
Only 0.7 percent of Android users are using the latest version of the operating system, while almost a third of Google’s operating system users are still using a firmware version that is too old. That is why it is difficult for many developers to use degradation methods and adapt their applications to 6 or 7 different versions of an operating system.
The problem is further complicated when you consider a large number of Android devices on the market, with their different screen sizes and resolutions, as well as specific features of each device.
The iOS apps have the advantage that 76% of users of iOS have their upgraded to the latest version smartphone, so segmentation problems just make an appearance.
Better development tools
Apple’s support for iOS app developers is well known. The company presents a more than a firm commitment to the programmers of its operating system in the face of Google’s rather apathetic view of problems known to Android app developers.
Also, Apple engineers are responsible for studying and analyzing all iOS apps that are presented to them, aware of the quality seal that the brand carries in its associated entrails.
The fact that the manufacturer of the devices and the development of the Mobile Operating System is the same, is a great advantage for iOS, since knowing the iDevice thoroughly, the OS adapts perfectly, always obtaining the maximum performance.
In addition, each new version of iOS, however small, is tested on all devices and even patches that are specially targeted to each model are released.
In the case of Android, each company modifies the operating system, adding applications and changes that reduce performance.
New applications are released first on iOS
Developers tend to launch their new applications on iOS and, weeks or even months later, arrive with them on Android. This is because they do not need to create versions compatible with the characteristics of hundreds of models.
Also, the iOS user downloads more applications and is less reluctant to pay for them. Once the application was successful, it just adapts to Android. That happened with Vine, Instagram and new versions of popular games.
Almost non-existent malware
While there is malware for iOS, this corresponds to a marginal percentage of what exists on Android and usually attacks those who install pirated applications, outside the App Store.
Apple makes very thorough reviews of applications before accepting them in your store and the regulations to follow are quite strict.
On Android, the malware is infinitely greater than in the Apple ecosystem.
