Apple's iOS 7 Seeks to Stand Out Among Mobile Operating Systems

With the impending release of Apple’s iOS 7, the computing giant is hoping to put some real distance between itself and its principal competitor in Android. The question that has arisen with this particular operating system is whether or not Android will be able to follow suit and make a UI that can look like Apple’s or whether or not this could be the shot across the bow for Google. It appears, at first glance, that Apple has truly come up with an OS that will allow it to stand alone in an ever-growing field of smartphones.

Apple has long been a company that has brought home some truly impressive revenue numbers, despite being out purchased on the whole by those who choose Android. While people generally like the iOS system better, there are so many different Android phones out there that the iPhone can’t compete in units sold. The new UI could put a dent in those numbers simply because this is finally a phone that will be hard to replicate by Android and other smartphones’ user interface (UI).

iOS 7 brings a dynamic user interface that has the use and depth of enhanced motion. The OS is made by Apple to look and feel quite a bit different than what people have seen from other mobile UIs. The fact of the matter is that most of the lower tier phones that are currently out on the market simply don’t have the equipment needed to look and feel like iOS 7 is going to look and feel.

Even higher-end phones are going to have to work long and hard to emulate what the iOS 7 can do and how it behaves. Apple was once the company that changed cell phones for the future. The company is wanting to do that again with the launch of iOS 7.
