The tech giant Apple and Google have already launched their first beta versions of their upcoming mobile operating systems respectively for the users and developers, hence, now, as a result, the early comparisons have already begun to emerge. But, before proceeding further, let me clarify that, here, in this post, we’ll mainly discuss the iOS 13 features that Apple has copied from Android.
Apart from all these things, Apple has undoubtedly given a good facelift to iOS 13 and adds some interesting and extraordinary features that we have already seen in the tech giant Google’s most used mobile operating system, Android.
We all know very well that both the tech giant Apple and Google have already launched their first beta versions of their upcoming mobile operating systems, respectively, for the users and developers; hence, now, as a result, the first comparisons have already begun to emerge.
However, apart from all these things we all know very well that the tech giant Apple has undoubtedly given a good facelift to iOS 13 and adds some interesting and extraordinary features that we have already seen in the tech giant Google’s most used mobile operating system, Android.
But, here the fact is that those new iOS 13 features are a simple copy or the tech giant Apple has improved them? Basically, to know this answer, here we have created this post simply to justify the features that the tech giant Apple has copied from Android simply to integrate them into its iOS 13.

iOS 13 Features That Apple Has Copied From Android
When an Android user gets thoughts with respect to one of iOS, it tends to emerge some functions that the operating system of the tech giant Google integrated some time ago, and the tech giant Apple incorporates them later.
However, the tech giant Apple never hurry to do the same as the tech giant Google does with its Android OS, although the beta of iOS 13 reveals the addition of some features that the tech giant Google’s Android OS already offers.
So, now without wasting much time let’s explore the whole list that we have mentioned below.
The Apple Maps have been renewed in iOS 13 with excellent quality and a view option on the street. It is a function which is similar to what we have been seeing for years with the “Street View” feature of Google in its Google Maps, but, here the “Look Around” feature comes with some improvements and extra information that the tech giant Google does not include in the Google Maps.
In this sense, the tech giant Apple seems to have been inspired by the worse improvement of Google, as the tech giant Apple says that the image resolution is much better and the streets will look more realistic in Apple Maps.
Support for Xbox One and PS4 controls
The new version of iOS, of course, the iOS 13 is offering native support for controllers of Xbox One and PS4 consoles via Bluetooth. This will simply allow it to improve the experience in many of the most current games, but, the real fact is that this feature is already available in Android since (From Android 9 Pie).
Connect to WiFi and Bluetooth from Control Center
Yes, it may seem quite odd, as we all know very well that the tech giant Apple’s iOS has long had a control center that you can access any time, but the fact is that to do so, simply you have to toggle the settings option.
As the iOS 13 of Apple will now allow users to connect directly to the WiFi networks and Bluetooth devices without driving them into the settings option of the OS. Hence, now I think that I don’t have to explain it anymore about this feature in Android.
Mouse and external storage support
This function has been integrated into the new iPadOS operating system of the tech giant Apple, which is an iOS adaptation especially designed for the tech giant Apple’s iPad.
Now it has support to connect external storage and mouse as well, which will simply allow you to be able to navigate through the interface getting more for productivity tasks. But, as we all know very well that this is something that is already available for Android for a long time.
Apple keyboard swipe typing
The tech giant Apple has shown as a great innovation the “swipe typing”, as with this feature its keyboard now allows you to write through a sliding system. Basically, it is the Swype function that we have been seeing on Android for nine years and is no longer so popular.
Sign in With Apple
One of the most striking during the presentation of iOS 13 has been the so-called “Sign in With Apple,” a new feature that allows you to log in to apps safely and without sharing data with third parties.
So, basically, it is a feature that the tech giant Google has allowed for a long time to “Sign in with Google”. Now it seems that the tech giant Apple wanted to go a step further than Android, simply by hiding the user’s email to all those third-party apps, that Google doesn’t offer.
Now Siri can read the incoming messages using AirPods
In the tech giant Apple’s all-new iOS 13, the well-known virtual assistant, Siri will be more useful when the user takes the AirPods, as from now on Siri will be able to read all the incoming messages.
However, the demerit of this features is that it is a function which is strictly limited to AirPods only, while the virtual assistant of the tech giant Google, of course, Google Assistant can do that for a long time, and also compatible with several types of headphones of different brands.
