(What is referred to as the OS to a conventional mobile phone called Garake has been installed, but there is no performance of about OS smartphone.) And, the name of the main OS of the smartphone is the "iOS" of "Android" is. Well, you are said to Android and iPhone, the Android that is the name of the OS that is installed in the smartphone, it is not the name of never smartphone-terminal. In addition, iPhone is the name of the smartphone-terminal, but the name of the OS that comes in is iOS. So, I will continue to explain the difference between iOS and Android.

and iOS?

 First is about the iOS. iOS is the OS that the iPhone and iPad, is the United States of Apple Inc., engaged in the sales and development, such as iPod has developed. iOS, although Apple's the product other than the terminal to even technical installed can be used without problems, Apple Inc. and above Terms You are going to be should not.

Because of this, or not delivered only one of the app for the OS, you might or different app release date and time of the OS. In addition, even in the app, which is also distributed for either OS, on the specification of the OS, there is also a somewhat comfortable to use different things.
