Apple’s iOS is perhaps the most recognizable operating system in the world. In the past 10 years, the Apple iOS has changed the way we live.
I think the iPhone is the best consumer product ever. That’s what I feel about it. And it’s become so integrated and integral to our lives, you wouldn’t think about leaving home without it. – Tim Cook
Apple has introduced many features in an iOS operating system that many users would not be able to imagine life without, like:
FaceTime, FaceTime is a video telephone/video chat service somewhat similar to Skype and Google Hangouts that makes it possible to conduct one-on-one video calls between newer Apple iPhone, iPad, iPod touch and Mac notebooks and desktops
App Store, App Store is a digital distribution platform, developed and maintained by Apple Inc., for mobile apps on its iOS operating system. The store allows users to browse and download apps developed with Apple’ iOS software development kit
iMessage, iMessage is Apple’s built-in instant messaging (IM) service. It lets you send text, picture, video, sound, and location quickly and easily to anyone else using iMessage on iPhone, iPad, Mac, or Apple Watch
Siri, Siri is a built-in “intelligent assistant” that enables users of Apple iPhone 4S and later and newer iPad and iPod Touch devices to speak natural language voice commands in order to operate the mobile device and its apps
Apple Pay, Apple Pay is a mobile payment and digital wallet service by Apple Inc. that lets users make payments using an iPhone, Apple Watch, iPad, or Mac. Apple Pay does not require Apple Pay-specific contactless payment terminals and can work with existing contactless terminals
iCloud, iCloud is simply a service that keeps all your devices in sync. In other words, you can share information between an iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, and a computer. The information on each device is automatically updated to make sure the most current information is available on all devices
and much more to list down.
