Apple and Android have always been at war with each other. There is no denying the fact that, there is no single way to decide which one is better than the other. Every smartphone brand has some amazing features and functions that make them stand apart from the rest. Android smartphones can perform functions that Apple iPhones cannot. Similarly, even Apple iPhone has a treasure of functions that no Android smartphone can perform. What to know what these functions are? Let’s take a look at 5 functions on Apple iPhone that Android smartphones can’t perform.
Native Screen Recording
iOS 11 brought in a lot of interesting new features. One of these features is the ‘native screen recording’. With native screen recording, users can record a video of all the contents on their iPhone’s display with external voice input. Another interesting use of this feature is that you can create fun and exciting GIF’s. However, the latest Apple iPhone is not the only device with native screen recording. Even a few Samsung smartphones support the feature, but it is not available in Android OS.
Spam Message Filter
Have you ever gone through the feeling of being annoyed because of receiving constant spam messages? Well, that feeling is just bizarre. If there was a way to get rid of spam messages, Apple found the solution to it first. With the introduction of iOS 11, iPhones have been blessed with a new feature that can filter spam messages. Even the previous versions of iOS were capable of filtering messages from unknown numbers. But with iOS 11, getting rid of all those spam messages has become even more convenient and easy.
Get Rid Of Unused Apps
Probably, one of the biggest pains of owning a smartphone is having to deal with bloatware. Though Samsung and other Android brands have reduced the amount of bloatware that hogs up space on your smartphone, it is not enough. However, with the latest iOS update, de-bloating your Apple iPhone has become effortless. A new feature called Offload allows you to get rid of all the apps that you rarely use while maintaining the app data and documents. So, you can remove all the unnecessary built-apps that you never use. And, if you ever require these apps in the future, you can re-install it with just a tap.
iMessage For Sending And Receiving Money
People using an Apple iPhone don’t really require a third party app to send or receive money. Along with iCloud support, you can easily transfer funds in the messages app. Additionally, with the iOS 11 update, users can directly send or receive money from Messages app via texts. You can also transfer this money to your bank account. Sadly, this is a feature that is yet to arrive in Android smartphones.
Faster & Smoother Updates
If you are an Android user and have been using your smartphone for a couple of years, you might be among those people who still haven’t received the latest Android Oreo update. Tough luck, right? Apple’s iPhones have the benefit of receiving software updates pretty quickly, as the company only has a handful of devices to account for at a time. The main reason for Apple to receive faster updates is that companies like Samsung, Xiaomi, Vivo, etc, are working on Android phones. But Apple is the only one that designs iPhones, which makes it easier for the company to manage updates.
