TitleAndroid v/s IOS – The Unceasing Battle
Index TermInformation Sciences
AbstractWith the increasing number of smart phones all over the globe, there is an emerging need of more convenient mobile operating systems. The increased number of users store personal and non-personal data. This requires a more secure mobile operating system. Among the widely used mobile operating systems, Android and iOS are the major vendors. Android is open source and prone to attacks while iOS is complex but secured. However, present security features in both operating systems are insufficient to secure user's data. This paper focuses on the security system that is adopted by the two operating systems and a general idea of the comparison between the two major vendors. We will be comparing and analysing both the operating systems by factors such as security, file transfer, updates and some other features.
