Apple Wins Because Of Its App Store

Update on

Interoperability can be defined as: the ability of computer systems or software to exchange and make use of information, or the ability of military equipment or groups to operate in conjunction with each other.

It is this level of interoperability that has helped companies like Apple to carve out a sense of dominance in their respective field. Apple has been a market leader, and also has created everything that is beautiful within the field of technology. It is no surprise that they're inching towards becoming a trillion dollar company.

Interoperability is the reason Apple has been so successful. The fact that today the iPhone is the best selling smartphone in the world beating all things Android, is all down to an intuitive and seamless experience. But that is not all, the main success of the iPhone and Apple products in general, its because of the App Store.


Apple has always been regarded as being very constricted and its enthusiasts have always spoken highly of how Apple always functions so much better in the close garden that it is known for. Android may have a mass-market appeal but it has always been a system that is rough around the edges.

Apple and its devices have always been regarded as offering a superlative user experience that cannot be surpassed. Huawei with its HarmonyOS its trying to do what Apple has done. This will of course require a great deal of money and resources, but with the backing and the cash flow that Huawei has, this seems like a distant possibility in the near future.

Elegant Media which is an award-winning development company knows a thing or two with regard to the development of applications. Applications as we all know its not an easy subject; there are so many programming languages such as Flutter and ReactNative that can be used to create fantastic applications.

If you were to consider the guidelines on either Apple’s App Store or Android’s Play Store you will realise that Apple has far stricter regulations and rules that needs to be adhered to. It is this highly strict adherence to regulations that makes iOS applications so much better.

Consider using Instagram on an iPhone versus Android phone. You will realise that the experience on an Apple iPhone is far more intuitive and seamless than its counterparts which are Android devices. The transitional nature when it comes to interacting with an application is a joy to behold on an iPhone.

It is due to this close-knit adherence to rules and regulations on the App Store, which prevent Apple’s apps from crashing constantly. This niche appeal of Apple also ensures that their systems do not suffer from malware and viruses. In a day and age where privacy and data breaches are a running theme, Apple seems to be the clear leader when it comes to safeguarding your data and preventing your data from being harvested for the benefit of advertisers.

It is due to these advantages, that Apple has the ability to charge a premium on most of these applications on its App Store.

As is the case with any huge company that desires to push boundaries, it has not been smooth sailing for Apple, though. Apple's built-in map application has flopped drastically. There really is no better option than Google Maps when it comes to the aspect of navigation and looking at the variable distances between locations.

Having said that, trust Apple to learn from its mistakes and come out stronger and better than ever. The current trend is towards augmented reality and virtual reality; and the fact that Apple is coming up with wearable technology shows that they are very serious with regard to augmented reality and virtual reality.

Apple Glass is supposed to run on what is purported to be GlassOS. There is a patent for privacy eyewear, which probably means that no one can snoop into your eyeglasses. Apple is always pushing the envelope when it comes to creativity and innovation and there seems to be no doubt that Apple will do the same when it comes to AR and VR technology.

Apple has been granted a patent for what is named as a direct retinal projector. Expect Apple Glass to reach the masses by 2023. It's just one of the innovations that Apple is coming up with, but there is also a mixed reality headset that combines both AR and VR.

Still for all, the concept of interoperability is still very relevant. What is actually behind the iPhone and all of the devices that the company has put out is the positivity of convenience. The next generation of devices by Apple will also be able to do so with regard to convenience.

With augmented reality and virtual reality becoming the default technology of today, Apple will be pushing the envelope and ensuring that they remain the market leader and a true innovator in not just smartphones but also wearables as well.
