Have you ever thought why iPhones are smoother than other Android and windows phones? This is one of the strong reasons why people always dream to hold it despite its hefty price tag. When Steve Jobs announced about the first ever iPhone on 29 June 2007, People waited in long queues to buy one. Of course, now there is no need to stand in a queue as iPhones are available everywhere, thanks to Amazon and other online stores. But curiosity is the same then and now, if not more.
Apple worked hard on iOS to give the user a pleasant experience and focused more on it than Google does. One primary reason is that while multi-tasking, iOS puts all the apps in a suspended mode, unlike Android which gives actual multi-tasking. In other words, iPhone gives preference to the currently used app than the background apps, whereas Android doesn’t. No matter what preference is given to current or background apps, background running apps eats CPU and system resources continuously. So, iPhone’s CPU focus more on the hand task only allowing more fluid navigation, thereby smooth function and transitions.
If you used both iPhone and Android phone, you would have realised that iPhones respond faster and smoother compared to androids. iPhone has its way of making this happen. Going into technical details, iOS has a specific thread with “high priority” for handling UI rendering. This thread will redirect all power (CPU) and system resources to handling UI element which is rendering in real time based on touch input by the user. The result is as Smooth-as-butter UI elements, transitions and animations as soon as user touch the screen, even with the older phone when paired with the latest iOS software.
Apple makes both hardware and software. So, iPhone’s every nook and corner of the hardware part is known to apple in great detail. This knowledge helps to build a powerful OS and with optimization of software to match with the hardware, and vice versa. This makes both hardware and software tightly integrated end to end, whereas Android devices are made by a bunch of companies, using a common platform, i.e., Android, made by Google. Now, each company is building its own version of Android to create more customized and simpler UI, but again they have their limits. So, the mismatch always exists between software and the actual device in android phones.
The last reason is that iOS software updates are instantly available to all its users, regularly and consistently, which enables all iPhones to get the latest features and security updates. When you use an Android phone, you won’t get the updated OS until you buy a new phone. Nowadays Android smartphone makers are trying to release updates for its users, but they are either not consistent or not for a long time.
