WWDC 2019 started just yesterday, with Apple showing all the news about the software, the hardware and generally that new is preparing for the year. Among other things, he has introduced the dark mode for iOS 13, the new Mac Pro, the upcoming titles for Apple TV +, and the new iPadOS.
However, the company did not stop only at presenting its products. Apple CEO Tim Cook did not forget to reveal to the conference attendees the usage rates of iOS 12 compared to that of Android Pie. In particular, he said that iOS 12 is used by 85% of Apple iDevices, while he joked that the Android Pie created by the "other company" is used by only 10% of devices.
This statement comes after the outbreak of a "war" between the two companies on privacy. You may have heard that Apple and the Google A privacy dispute has recently erupted following statements by Google CEO Sundar Pichai, who indirectly accused Apple of selling "luxury goods" in the name of privacy.
Craig Federighi of Apple responded through an interview to the accusations and criticized the well-known search firm for supplying its products with data collection.
It's not sure if this is yet another Apple response to the ongoing controversy of the two companies, but it has certainly hit Google where it hurts most. For history, the release of the first Android OS was 10 years ago. Also, most users have not yet received the latest upgrades. If they do not have a Pixel device, it usually takes months for the most recent Android version to reach the majority of Android users.
Of course we can not ignore the fact that Android is running on a wide variety of devices. So next time takes more time, as well as the willingness of device manufacturers to optimize an update for so many devices. But Microsoft has a similar story, but it manages to cope.
Nobody can admit, however, that it is interesting and fun to watch how the two companies try to offend one another on public platforms without being directly named.
