What Android users don’t understand about Apple

OK I am biased – as an Apple fangirl, I am content with my ecosystem involving all iGadgets – although I don’t own a mac….yet. Here are my thoughts on why Apple users are misunderstood by Android users.

Jobs’ mantra of “Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication” was the driving force behind Apple’s products. Even if you have never picked up an iPhone, the ios is so intuitivite that most pick it up and start using the phone, SMS and apps within minutes. Out of the box Apple products come with little or no instruction manual  – because they don’t need it.


Each time Apple releases a new operating system, the adoption rate or number of users that update their phones, far outstrips that of Android.

App popularity

According to the infographic below, for every $1 spent on the Google Play App store, $2.45 is spent on the Apple App store. On the other hand, Google is catching up with more than 800,000 apps available as of March 2013, compared to 840,000 Apple apps.
