Operating systems have not been social in past years but recently Windows, Apple, and Android have been making their operating systems more social. How did they do this? Well Apple did it by adding the ability to post to facebook from the notification area. Android had the release of the Facebook phone which was a flop, Windows connects you to xbox live and any social media service you want all in one screen. But most recently Apple has released ios 7 which has the new air drop feature. This is the most social thing that I have seen in an operating system. It is basically Snapchat but better and it takes it a step further. It allows you to save pictures shared with you and you can share with as many people as you like. I think this feature makes ios 7 the most social os.
Apple announced ios7 today. The software is similar to android. Apples new ios 7 software is similar to androids jellybean 4.2 software. Apple claims that with this is a new perspective of a mobile operating system. When in reality Android 4.2 has had all of the features this has for months now. Even the new font on the homescreen is similar to android. It has the ability to have multiple applications open at the same time. This is also from android. The more I read through the new features the more I laugh. Filters you can apply to pictures, can people not already do that using social media apps? Safari is also starting to look like crome. Read through the features for yourself and tell me that they do not match android. What I am looking forward to is the actual release of the iphone six to see what the final version looks like. This proves that android is far beyond ios.
