Samsung and Apple are two of the biggest competitors when it comes to smartphone manufacturing. The two tech behemoths often take public jabs at each other however they often follow each other’s leads such as when Apple started the much controversial, ‘no charger’ in the box trend, Samsung followed suit.

According to recent reports, the software on Samsung’s Galaxy devices has been updated to make it more seamless and customizable. If you have had an iPhone, it might look familiar to you.

Further Details

Samsung announced its next One UI 4 software upgrade on Tuesday at its annual developer conference, along with its Smart Home Strategy, Tizen TV, and Bixby speech assistant. The new smartphone software has been in beta since September, but at the conference’s opening address, the tech giant presented an in-depth look at the new capabilities. The update will begin in late 2021, with the Galaxy S21 Series as the first to receive it before moving on to other Galaxy devices.

One UI 4 places a strong emphasis on design. Certain operations, such as setting an alarm or using the device’s fingerprint sensor, will activate haptics and sounds, and you may personalize your phone’s system design to match your wallpaper. However, some of the new features in the upgrade, particularly the more uniform widgets, and new privacy options, seem to have been inspired by the iPhone. It’s yet another indicator that, as smartphones have grown over the last decade, the feature gap between iOS and Android is decreasing.

For example, regardless of whether the widgets are from Samsung or third-party vendors, One UI 4 has more rounded corners. This appears to be very similar to the iPhone’s home screen widgets, based on what we saw in Samsung’s presentation.

The iPhone 11 is one of the most significant developments to come. QuickTake was added to the camera app in 2019. By merely holding down the shutter button and moving it to the right, you may quickly transition from photo to video mode. When One UI 4 is released, Samsung device owners will have a similar shortcut. By simply pulling up on the camera shutter, you may now transition from photo to video mode. These are just some of the features that will be shipped with the new UI. The new update will make everyday tasks such as iPhone transfer much more seamless.

In terms of data security, One UI 4 will help Samsung devices catch up to the iPhone. Users of Samsung smartphones can choose to disclose their exact or estimated location with apps, a feature introduced by Apple with iOS 14 last year.

Summing Up

Apple and Android device makers have been in a race to put new features and capabilities into their mobile devices since the early days of the smartphone. It’s a competition for which there will never be a clear winner, and the best option for most individuals will be determined by their preferred operating system. In short, it all comes down to which device you are more comfortable with hence Samsung’s approach to making its UI similar to the iPhone might be received mixed reactions.
