As illustrated in the above-mentioned graph, Apple’s global iPhone sales continue to skyrocket behind leading mobile communications conglomerates.
The continued popularity and dependability of Apple’s lineup of smartphones have made it the preferred choice for enterprises in ensuring business productivity. iOS as a mobile platform has always been on the forefront in terms of robustness and security.
But the thing is, there are stronger competitors in the current market competing directly with iOS. Google-owned Android have fared remarkably well in the mobile market largely due to its swift integration with Google’s extensive services, flexibility, and support.
So, security in enterprise app design will iOS dominate or does Android edges it out with its open platform?
