On September 9, Apple CEO Tim Cook unveiled the latest and greatest advancements in the company’s mobile technology platforms. Among these announcements were the Apple Pencil, a tablet stylus used for graphic design and digital art, the Apple Watch x Hermes, a series of watches that combine wearable technology with high-end fashion, and the iPad Pro, a larger-than-ever before Apple Tablet with 1.57 lb. weight and 6.9 mm width. And who could forget one of the most talked about introductions from the event, the announcement of the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus? In light of these new technological advancements, the Prep News decided to evaluate the details surrounding these highly anticipated phones and compare them to one of the best phones among Apple’s fiercest rivals, Android.
The screen and phone sizes ultimately come down to personal preference. In terms of hardware and internal processing, Apple seems to be playing catch-up with their competitors; however, the iPhone’s friendly user interface and easy-to-use App Store keep the ball in Apple’s court.
However, the stats mean nothing when it comes to personal preference. Some people love the simplicity of the iPhone, while some people can’t live without the power of the Android phones. At the end of the day, people will buy and use the phones that they’re comfortable with, but this competition between the two companies will continue to produce new, innovative phones.
