History of Apple IOS

In what is generally considered to be his greatest presentation ever, Apple’s Steve Jobs presented the iPhone to the entire world on January 9, 2007.

Through what can simply be identified as consistent and relentless improvement over time, apple has made IOS one of the most feature-rich and well-supported platforms in the marketplace.

History of Android OS

In 2003, four (4) technology professionals work together to establish Android Inc. of Palo Alto, CA: Andy Rubin, Chris White, Rich Miner and Nick Sears. The 4 joined forces to build an operating system for mobile devices that can detect user’s location and their preferences. Initially, the Android team hoped to implement the program into digital camera devices, thereby creating cameras that can access computer services. But, the company realized that there would be low demand for such types of computer camera, so the development exercises switched and focused on mobile phones.

In August 2005, Android quietly became the property of Google. Google bought the start-up company for a confidential price which is believed to be nearly $50 million. Although some individuals back then claimed that the move would bring about Google’s dominance of the mobile operating system, most perceived that Google was endeavoring to make a serious foray into Internet based services on mobile platforms.
