Apple iOS and Google Android are constantly vying for users’ favour with new features and apps. With our guides, tips and practical examples, you can get the most out of your mobile iOS and Android devices. We also present Apple’s new devices, iPhone XR, iPhone XS Max, and iPad Pro, in experimental tests.
Apple’s new mobile devices, iPhone XR, iPhone XS Max, and the iPad Pro, offer many new features. Whether it’s easy on the eyes in poor light conditions, is accessible anywhere thanks to a double SIM card configuration or USB-C interface, only a practical test reveals the advantages of each device and shows what added value it offers compared to the previous model and whether an update, model change or purchase is worthwhile.
The latest generation of smartphones and tablets with Apple iOS12 or Android 9.0 Pie operating systems are equipped with various useful options to increase work efficiency and user comfort. For example, user behaviour can be analyzed with iOS Screen Time and Android’s “Digital Wellbeing”, or the night mode or Night Shift can be used to protect the eyes. Anyone who wants to pay with their iPhone or Apple Watch can now use Apple Pay. Siri shortcuts, iCloud storage or the Apple Configurator, increase usability.
Users have to overcome several hurdles when switching from an older Android device generation to smartphones with the new Google operating system or when updating. Switching from an iPhone to an Android device is also not entirely unproblematic. Adjustments are often required from the basic configuration to communication channels and security to the synchronization of user data.
If you also want to be on the safe side, you not only use anti-malware on your Android smartphone but also encrypt telephone calls, e-mails and the like and also surf the Internet anonymously with Orbot or Tor. A data backup with Google Backup can also be helpful in an emergency. Our compendium contributes a great deal of know-how on these topics.
Mobile device management software supports IT departments in ensuring security, transparency and control when using iOS and Android-based smartphones and tablets. An overview of the essential MDM solutions shows the features with which these systems score.
