Also, this explanation doesn't always make sense IMO. For example, why when they added reactions to iMessage did they give us these random pre-defined options, instead of just letting us choose emojis? Or with widgets, why are they so restrictive, and essentially just glorified app icons? Where is split screen for iOS? Why can we STILL not snap windows to the side on macOS? Why is it that I can use App Drawer on iOS to search an app then add to my home screen, but when searching apps using Spotlight (more convenient IMO) I can't drag them anywhere? Why did they make accessing the shuffle/repeat buttons on Music more difficult than it was before? It's little things like these that add up for me.

I used to ride for Google really hard back in the day. But it’s the silo effect that really killed it for me. Eg, the constant killing off of apps I liked (inbox, allo, Google Play Music, reader, etc). Now that the (Google) assistant is starting to show her age (or maybe it’s my devices). I’m excited to switch to HomeKit and Siri for control. That said, I’m gonna really miss multi language, multi user support that the Google Assisant offers. Eg. One person speaks Spanish, the other English. The Google assistant will recognize both.

I sent Apple a feature request a couple years back that described the new Focus feature almost verbatim. I wonder if they ever saw that, or if this was already in the works... lol

After using IPhone for 2 years, I can safely say that there's nothing cool about it nada 😂.you can't share music, u can't share apps and neither can you download the cool staff like themes, IPhone is overrated 😂 it's just a shitty piece of technology that can't do nothing but take photos 😂 Now switched to Google pixel for a better experience....

Hey Marques , Apple has never focused on comparing itself with any other hardware or software from different brands. It has only focused on making its approach and ideas unique, which automatically makes it stand out from other companies.

Apples features are always more pollished, smooth and they work better. I feel like Android goes for quantity, but apple goes for quality with their features because they are really picky what to release for general public.

Anybody Reading This Comment, Please Make Me Understand, Why CALL RECORDING Breaches Privacy Of Someone When A Call Is Already Being Recorded At The Other End. It’s High Time Apple Should Incorporate This Feature, People Have Changed Over A Period Of Time, Deals Are Mostly Done On Phones, People Just Deny Anything And Everything They Said, If It Doesn’t Suit Them. It’s Better To Remind Them Of Their Words, May Be IN THIER VOICE.

I use to like the super fast and innovative, but have learned to grow to love how Apple just gets it right when they do it and so seamlessly. I would like to see them launch products and services no one has ever seen before, much like the smart phone (iPhone), iPad, and more in the past.

most of these features are coming late because they didn't invent them not because they don't have the capability to do it then and there. stuff like widgets are basic features that were in android from the beginning and there's no difference between them other than still, Apple doesn't allow you to customize in full freedom. Apple is like that toxic rich person that rejects all the useful items that a normal person uses but after some time realizes it's useful for them as well so they paint those items with gold just to be different from the regular item. Seriously I don't get why Americans who REALLY pushing the total freedom agenda like to be controlled by some big tech company.

Marques, I'm a rare viewer, but I wanted to compliment you on your evolution of insight. There was a time when you would have been less inclined to appreciate patience for the sake of a polished cross-platform experience. I know it's no surprise to your regular viewers, but I appreciate this evolution, and it has made you one of the most thoughtful tech journalists around.

I definitely prefer cool features sooner. I make my buying decisions based on what a product can do today, not what it might be able to do in the future if I also happen to have another same-ecosystem product. The Apple features all seem nice, but I only have an iPhone (through work). It’s a big investment to break into the walled garden, even if it might be nice when I get there. Other systems have neat features I can use today.

If your company is the first with a new feature, you're innovative and therefore objectively better. If your company is _isn't_ first, that's because you want your product to be perfect, and therefore you're objectively better. Apple has done that for a long time, and their customers believe every word of it. Google has done that for a long time, and their customers believe every word of it.Truth is, sometimes you are the more innovative company for 2-3 years and the competition copies, sometimes it's the other way around. Nothing wrong with that. And if two companies compete with each other, at the end the customer is the winner of it all. Sad that many customers don't realize that and rather fight each other.

Eh. This isn't really true of every feature. It's a lot more complicated than that, I don't really like the broad stroke. There are other reasons for a ridiculous amount of features being held, ranging from 'we didn't think you needed it' to 'we're not comfortable doing this' on top of board appeasing kick-the-can down the road philosophy. It just doesn't work like this as a broad stroke, they have so much money that if they really wanted an unbaked feature to make it into a build, they can easily allocate resources to close the gap to their satisfaction. As a programmer, this is a little defensive and not exactly accurate. There's no minimum development time across the board for finely tuned application. Don't work like that. This is about as silly as MKBHD claiming wireless RAW data transfer via MagSafe is on the horizon. Just another content creator talking a little out of turn. At any rate, I have no problems with MKBHD, I'm just tired of content creators and gaming journalists speaking for software engineers. We can speak for ourselves, thanks. Maybe ask one of us. Apple is a rare huge company that has 3 of the 3 development tenets, essentially meaning they can render one of those tenets in applicable at any time. They can sacrifice time and people for money, they can sacrifice money and people for time, they can sacrifice money and time for people. Edit: I'd also like it to be known that I use Apple and Android both, and will change OS at any given time based on value proposition and state of OS. Brand loyalty is freakin' ridiculous. Evaluate your use case scenario and make your decision on that. When it's time to upgrade, reevaluate your use case scenario and make a completely new decision.

Yeah let’s be honest apple will always come later with features that android have been having for a while now but the difference is that android tends to be laggy with new features, instead when apple brings new features, they are had solid and smooth! They’ll always come late but way better than other version and without lagging! 🤷🏻‍♂️🤷🏻‍♂️

I am disappointed by MK this time. I don't like his way of mentioning every features of Google's android and saying "Apple did this much better".. neglacting the time gap. Just think it over, You are using a feature since 2 years and then suddenly a money-milking company introduces the same feature with a little tweak and and and just for their own ecosystem. And a Apple pimp says Apple did it better. Seriously pissed off..Heavily disappointed MK.......For an instance, I thought of unsubscribing.

I've never liked Apple products, as you said they force you to buy all other Apple products, rather than give you the choice like Google and Microsoft products. Proprietary = bad for everyone. Universal interoperability without dependencies = good for everyone. If I want to copy files to/from my phone/computer to/from any other phone/computer, it should just work without needing to be my phone/computer with a proprietary cable and proprietary software. I would consider some Apple products (like an Apple Watch) if they worked with non-Apple products (like my Android phone), however they seem to only sell overpriced proprietary products without any interoperability with other non-Apple products, so I can just never consider them if I want the best quality product with highest ease of use due to most flexibility, interoperability and customisability.

I have always sided with the choice of well integrated features, apps and functions that I can easily use and that will actually seamlessly connect with each other - so I love the way Apple does it - “We have no wish to be first, but when we do use the tech it really works and has a genuine use for the user” Steve Jobs (I remember him saying singing to this nature in his late 2010 key note”

The "ecosystem flex feature" is just a copy of Symless' Synergy software. I've been using that for more than 10 years! And that is even multiplatform, it can drag a mouse pointer and files between macs, windows, linux... Apple is out of ideas and is now just stealing from it's own community of 3rd party devs. Just like last years sidecar feature ripped off Astropad. And some year before the spotlight revamp made it into a carbon copy of Alfred.

Isn't it nice when there is the right leader to lead the entire central control in the right direction? Full integration compared to "fragmentation and freedom". Copying the competition but with a twist of their own innovation. Apple also has people that hate on them and want to sue them but in reality, they want to create a quality ecosystem and product, so they don't care and move on. Guess which country also has these qualities. China. Copy and learn like you learn math, and put their own twist on the product to make it their own. Central Control that has more integration and efficiency compared to fragmented democratic countries. People that hate on them but they know their goals so they just keep growing while haters keep hating.

To your question at the end of the video about preference between super innovative features and more well polished , I feel that the best example of well plugged in and super innovative features for Android would closest be held by Pixel phones. I have been a long time pixel user and while I did have IPhone for work in parallel I have almost always enjoyed the android ui more. I think with ios14 its come close to the android features in regular use. I may have this luxury as I am not into the apple ecosystem with the only apple product I use being the iPhone.
