    Both systems are great, but both need competition from each other to grow and get better.

    What would like to see Apple implement that is already on Android? What are your favorite features on Android that you wish your iOS device could do?

    Choose non-Apple apps as default! That's a huge deal for me.

    I have no idea! I like the Apple Ecosystem, and the security of the App Store.

    Similar notifications would be good. I think notifications are much better on android. I'd like to be able to use split screen on my 7+ as well.

    Well, Android is open source, and Apple does give credit for parts they use. There isn't much from Android I would like to see Apple take advantage of that they haven't already.

    Dark theme, notification bar, wireless charging, icon packs, device maintenance in settings.

    There are a couple of things I would like for Apple to change without changing the Apple concept of their iOS.
    1. Dark Theme
    2. Different Icon packs
    3. Lock screen customization
    4. iMessage colors
    5. No shaded bottom dock on the home screen

    I agree with the iMessage colors. Facebook Messenger lets us change the color of the bubbles, and even though it's a small thing, it's really good at visually differentiating group chats and conversations.

    No shaded dock would be phenomenal! Black dock, black background, with iPhone 7 Plus in Black, dang, the theme song would be Everything Black by Unlike Pluto.

    I haven’t used an Android device in 6 years so I don’t have a clue to what I’d like Apple to copy from it, if anything...

    THIS X 1,000. I use a lot of third party apps for calendar, reminders, email, podcasts, and other functions. I’m constantly being led into stock apps that I don’t use.

    This frustration made me very susceptible to change -- I've switched to an S8+ for may main device; my iPhone is now relegated to the secondary for my company line.

    Oh gosh you have no idea, that's what I used to have when I first got my Black 7 Plus and it was the blackest black that ever blacked. And it would actually make the colors of the apps stand out even more, so even though it was black it would look more colorful. Please bring this back it was awesome

    I really hope Apple introduce a dark mode for iOS. It'd look so cool!

    Fanboy? Nah. I’m just a guy who has used a plethora of wireless phones dating back to 1989. Phones from Blackberry, Palm, Nextel, Ericsson, Nokia, Android and Apple are just ‘some’ of the ones I’ve owned. With that in mind, I’ve come to appreciate the quality of the iPhone and the simplicity and smoothness of iOS. It fits ‘me’ perfectly, and thus the reason I will stick with it, but that’s Just Me, D....

    I have never used an Android device. Fanboy? No, Apple and thus, iPhone offers me everything I need and want. So I don’t have any earthly clue as to what I’d want to see from android in iOS.
    I agree with D. here.

    I agree with both of you. It's so simple and it just works.
