iOS 16 reflects Apple’s submission to the Android philosophy

The iOS vs Android argument predates human civilization has existed since the release of these operating systems.

We’re all entitled to our own opinions.

Whether these subjective views are logical, factual, or in sync with the hive mind is irrelevant.

As mature adults, we accept these differences in others.

Nonetheless, we also get to criticize them in a cultured manner.

Objectively, perhaps we can all agree that Android has always been more flexible than iOS.

The latter OS seemingly has been catering to average users by sticking to familiarities and avoiding sudden, major changes.

In recent years, though, I’ve been noticing Apple’s slow progression towards liberating its mobile OS.

This vision — which could tempt undecided Android users to switch sides — is particularly apparent in iOS 16.
