Steve Wozniak's recent statement somewhat still identifies himself with the company he co-founded. He is said to have quoted that Apple is a bit behind in terms of features, but he did not identify which areas need improvement for Apple to keep abreast with its competition with Google, presumably, even if there was no mention of Android being the competition. He also commended Samsung and the Korean giant's ability in "making great products".


He also admitted to still buying Apple products, which seems to imply that they are great and mentioned that he wouldn't do so if the company manufactures lousy gadgets.


Although Android was not mentioned, it is hard to leave it out when we are talking about the greatest operating system battle in the history of mobile technology, along with the iOS. Also, whatever Wozniak says will always make the news, since he is just as controversial as the best OS rivalry in the planet.




Android and iOS combined accounted for a whopping 96.3% of all smartphone shipments worldwide in 2014. Android is on the top with 81.5% of the market, where iOS lacks behind with 14.8% only.



2014 Market Share



Ramon Llamas, Research Manager with IDC's Mobile Phone team, said - "Many of the same drivers were in play for Android and iOS to tighten their grip on the market, A combination of strong end-user demand, refreshed product portfolios, and the availability of low-cost devices particularly for Android drove volumes higher."



It's expected that Google's own OS will continue growing with more Android-powered device are released into the markets (Smartphones, Tablets, TVs, Smartwatches, Gaming consoles... etc).
