I'm a phone app programmer and over the course of my position I have used both iPhone and Android gear. Unfortunately it is true that lots of phone owners use iPhones just to show boat.
But there happen to be a few important functions that renders iPhones a smart choice. The iPhone range protects it's user's security in a great way. No 3rd party apps are able to use the device's calling logs, emails & different features, and this is thought to be vitally pertinent. In regards to the Android OS its really regular that third party applications can read your calling information & sms data. If you have installed and downloaded a new game & it could read & send your device's sms or other data like banking information.
And also consider the handset consumers that foolishly do not look at any access permission when downloading apps and games. All of the games and apps in the Appstore have been thoroughly vetted via Apple manually as well as by the machine process prior to showing it on the official App Store. It has been shown there are no chances of malicious apps getting in the App Store. Regarding the Android equipment, an unscrupulous app developer is able to publish whatever type of their App.
Performance wise, the iPad excels, put a iPhone XS Max in your hand and hold a HTC example in the other hand. Now call a number and see the results. The reaction wait is great on an iDevice. Apple's typing experience is market leading on iPads and iPhones. You notice this most if you are using Safari. Apple always provides new OS updates to all devices. But the cheap Android phones are not upgradable and will be outdated in next 1 year. That's another major issue with most of the Android phones.
Overall hardware is far better in iOS with compare to Android phones. Whether it is body, battery back up, battery life etc. Calling is also very good in iPhones. Have you ever seen that someone is talking over iPhone and voice is coming out? But on most of the Android phones voice comes out why calling and can be listened easily by nearby people. iPhones are strong enough. You may have noticed that you do not see someone's iPhone with cracked screen. But in case of Android like Micromax you may seen a lot of people with broken screens. iPhone screen glass is strong enough & does not break on easy drops.
