Apple hit Google where it hurts

Google

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 just remain in the presentation of its products. Apple's CEO, Tim Cook, has not forgotten to reveal the attendance rates of iOS 12 to those attending the conference compared to Android Pie. Specifically, iOS 12 was used by Apple's iDevices 85% while jokingly saying that Android Pie created by the other company is only used by 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 recently launched a privacy dispute following Google's CEO Sundar Pichai, who indirectly accused Apple of selling "luxury items" 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.
