When comparing iOS with Android, it is always a case of whodunit. We frequently compare who introduced which feature first, whether it was iOS or Android. Now that the latest versions of iOS and Android are available, it’s time for another whodunit. So, let us go over the features that iOS 16 introduced first, as well as the features that Android 13 currently lacks.


Passkeys are a great idea to replace traditional passwords. But why use passkeys instead of passwords? They are simpler to use and far more secure than traditional passwords. Apple was the first to introduce it with iOS 16. We expect Google to include this in Android sooner or later.

Yes, we are aware that you can copy text from images on Android using Google Lens, but Apple was slow to integrate it. In iOS 16, however, you may copy text from videos. To copy, translate, or share the text, simply pause the video and choose the text. This feature is still missing from Android 13 and none of the third-party skins.

Apple’s Safety Check feature is not comparable to Pixel’s Safety Check. Both are valuable in their own right, but the one in iOS 16 is for victims of domestic abuse, whilst the one in Pixel is for when the user is alone. In the event of domestic violence, the Safety Check in iOS 16 revokes and resets the private access that users have granted to others. On Android or Pixels, there is no equivalent to iOS’ Safety Check.

Messages can be deleted on WhatsApp, Telegram, and many more apps. However, there is no similar capability in Android’s built-in messaging app. However, in iOS 16, the Texts app allows users to undo a message and even edit messages. None of these are available in the Android Messages app.

Users can now manage their prescriptions using the Health app on iOS 16. You can schedule a drug to be delivered at a specified time, and you will be notified when it is ready. You can still utilize third-party apps, but there is no such capability built into Android 13.

This may not appear to be a significant feature, yet it is quite useful. Users on iOS 16 can convert units within Photos, Notes, Messages, and other apps; simply tap the unit, and the converted unit appears. Meanwhile, unit conversion on Android will require the usage of the Google Lens app, which is not as frictionless as unit conversion on iOS.

This is an extreme security setting that restricts functions and increases security to avoid spyware attacks. Such security measures are not available on any Android smartphone.
