Multiple iOS 17 features that Apple borrowed from Android, similar to Samsung & Google Pixel users

11 months ago By AI Smith

Less than 72 hours ago, Apple surprised its users with the presentation of iOS 17. Although most of the eyes that were attentive to WWDC 2023 focused on the Vision Pro, the company’s augmented reality glasses that surprised me with their characteristics and their price, an important part of the event was led by the future operating system from Apple. And, although it convinced many users with its novelties, the reality is that some functions presented are already old acquaintances for those who own Android devices.

One of Apple’s main announcements was the ability to download maps for offline use. However, what has been revealed as a new addition is an option that Google Maps users have enjoyed for more than a decade. In addition, they also highlighted various accessibility options related to, for example, minimizing the functions of certain applications (Messaging, FaceTime, Calls and more), another possibility that some Android phones have already had for several years.

The main novelties of iOS 17 are present in the Android

The smart screen was one of the most important attractions of the presentation. By placing the mobile in a horizontal position, it can display all the information the user wants on the screen. However, what was presented as a novelty is a tool that users of Google Pixel phones are familiar with. Also, the ability to leave a video message for people who don’t answer a FaceTime call is an option that Google users are familiar with. Thus, since 2018, those who use Google Duo can take advantage of this aspect.

Live voicemail, a tool that allows you to view the text message left by a contact in your mailbox in real-time is also a tool familiar to Android users (more specifically those of Google Pixel thanks to the transcription of the Google Assistant). In addition, other features such as shortening the voice command for Siri or improvements in autocorrect are also present in Android devices. However, as usually happens in these cases, Apple has been inspired by the functionalities of other companies to give you your vision. And this, ultimately, will cause other firms to follow this line and in the future improve the benefits of the company founded by Steve Jobs.
