There is a lot of debate about which platform is better, Android or iOS, and much of it is similar to the PC vs. Mac debates. Android is open and Google is less of a gatekeeper, which means it's easier for developers to push an app to the Google Play Store, but that also means malware is more prevalent. Apple customers are used to paying more for hardware so it's easier to get them to pay for apps, and iTunes gift cards make it easy. The types of Apple devices are limited compared to the thousands of unique Android devices which makes compatibility difficult. Apple pushes the new operating system to users regularly whereas many Android devices run older versions and aren't usually able to upgrade.
