Device notifications are clunky, and devices using iOS do not have efficiency when it comes to battery use (Parker, 2016). 2. Android Android is an operating system for mobile devices developed by Google. It is usable on devices such as Nexus, Samsung Galaxy phones and tablets, and HTC. It features a graphical user interface that allows users to tap applications available for download in the Google Play store (Parker & Parker, 2016). Open source allows OEMs to make customizations to the Android operating system to fit their needs. The operating system has a smart look, with applications that can be tapped to open, and an application drawer that stores anything that’s been downloaded. Android comes with a virtual assistant, Google Now (Parker & Parker, 2019). While customizability has its advantages, it also has its disadvantages. You may not find consistency between devices. The fragmentation of Android operating systems also makes it more difficult for application developers (Parker & Parker, 2019).
3. Windows 10 Mobile Windows 10 Mobile is an operating system for mobile devices that allows for easy integration with Windows 10 desktop and laptop computers. It features a graphical user interface that is very similar to the desktop version of the operating system. It is usable on Windows devices, such as the Lumia. Applications are available for download from the Windows Store (Stevenson, 2015). Windows 10 Mobile allows for easy multitasking between devices, and its integration with the desktop version of the app gives users a consistent interface between platforms. Since Microsoft products are proprietary, the consistency of usability between devices is a plus. The operating system has a streamlined look that allow users to tap to open applications from a start menu. Windows Mobile 10 has a virtual assistant called Cortana (Stevenson, 2015). Windows 10 Mobile is proprietary and can only be used on Windows devices, locking users into a specific brand. Devices can only use apps from the Windows Store, which has a lackluster offering of applications. Overall, the operating system overall is buggy (Stevenson, 2015). 4. Mac OS X Mac OS X is an operating system designed for desktop and laptop computers by Apple. It is the oldest operating system for personal computer use, released in 1984. It has a graphical user interface and is designed for use of Apple produced computers. It is often marketed as the operating system of graphic designers ("Linux vs MAC vs Windows - Which One Is Better (Infographics)", 2019). Became Mac OS X has a lower share of the operating system market, it has higher security and lower chance of contracting malware. The operating system is designed to function with Apple hardware, so there is better integration between the OS and the hardware. Mac OS X has an interface that is streamlined and easy to use, and allows for multitasking between applications. Several productivity applications come bundled with install, and it easily integrates with iDevices such as the iPhone, iPad, and The costs related to Apple hardware and the Mac OS X is
