Apple initially forged the idea of a smartphone with the introduction of iPhone in 2007. Not long after they formulated a marketplace for the mobile applications that serve different purposes to the user and added value to their product. Moreover, with the passage of time, they grew to a business that approximately amounts to $86 billion so far. They call it App Store. Apple, traditionally, discloses statistics as to showcase how good is the App Store and iOS apps have done during the past year. In 2017:
To say the least, Apple is making a huge business and it is flourishing. Businesses now consider it essential to capture the market share in apps and are making investments in iOS App Development Services.
Android, that is the rival in such a business, has more devices to its name and is likewise doing great business yet that is nowhere near the reach of iOS. What android also facing is the customer attrition or churn. People are switching to iPhones. According to a research, 23% of the iPhone 8 buyers were known to be Android users. Apple, being the pioneer in this business, has not only maintained its user base but also sought growth through state of the art innovation. As a result, iOS apps are known to be better in quality and offer a better return on investment than Android App Development Services.
App revenue comparison
According to this research, Apple made 100% more than its competitor in-app revenue even though Android has way more app downloads than iOS App store. Hence, the better ROI on opting for iOS app development services.
Apple has a way of scrutinizing apps and assurance of quality before the app is rolled out in their App Store. Thus, maintaining the high-quality standards that offer users a seamless experience.
Android has more devices as compared to iOS. Android developers are known to complain about how they have to test it on all the android versions prevailing in the market since only 0.7% android users are on the latest version of it. Also, more time consuming extensive codes that end being costlier. Apple, on the other hand, eases it out for them. They just have to meet the criteria for testing of the prevalent iOS version that is being used in almost 70% of the iPhones.
According to a research, iOS app takes around 30% lesser development time than Android. Also, the codes are more extensive for Android. So, resulting in more costs for Mobile App Development Services.
Android has way more users than Apple but Apple’s users tend to be more loyal to them and speak of their Apple products more passionately than any. It’s a well-established client niche that sings of Apple’s quality and performance.
When it comes to user experience, iOS apps outweigh the Android greatly. Through total cohesion of software and hardware with an iPhone, they achieve seamless and incredible user experience. Adding to that is their customer support that ensures customer satisfaction through the lifecycle of an app.
