Here are the six things which make the iPhone so expensive.

1. Security and Privacy :

iPhone has very good security and instant treat cacher which makes iPhone robust and secure than other devices.

Android phones can be root and administrator privilege will be compromised but in iPhone root is not easy in fact OS doesn’t support the root devices.

Another best example is a selective option for a photo gallery for example if you are having any photo gallery app which needs to access your photo gallery but you will also have some personal photos which you don’t want to expose to anyone there you will get the popup by saying either allow or deny. and even after allowing it will prompt for another option that is Select Photos, Allow Access to All Photos, and Don’t Allow. these are the three options you will get and you would hold your personal pictures.

Password compromised notification is very helpful to secure your device from hackers, When your password gets a break from any website and you may have saved that password into your device so iPhone itself notify you that your password has been compromised and recommend you to change it. iCloud keychain checks your password saved into it and generates an alarm when your password gets compromised, you can check the password option on the following location on your device.  Settings > Passwords > Security Recommendations.

Apple is working on an extensive level on privacy issues apple prevents cross-site tracking on their devices. so in this way, iPhone does not allow any website to track your data and use it for its analytic purpose. you must have noticed that whenever you visit any website it popup by saying that we will use your cookies will be in use or your cookies will be tracked by us, Apple stands very clear on this case, they don’t allow any site to connect your data and steal not they allow your data for accessing for analytics purpose.

Apple keep your WiFi address private and secure when you try to connect any iPhone device it will show any name on the network device or Network operator and there will not be any chance in Wifi Functionality behavior but your Wifi will have a private name which will help you’re to keep your wifi safe.

If you compare processor speed to android you find the Apple iPhone processing speed is faster than the android iPhone 13 comes with a Hexa-core Apple A14 Bionic processor which is the fastest processor in entire mobile devices. whereas other big companies like Samsung are using Qualcomm Snapdragon 855+.

Checking at gaming performance and CPU performance both are excellent in Hexa-core Apple A14 Bionic processor as compare to Qualcomm Snapdragon 855+ while checking the battery life consumption both processors is same. CPU and GPU play a vital role in the Hexa-core Apple A14 Bionic processor and provides high-quality graphics too.

Apple’s Operating system is faster than the Android OS because of the hardware compatibility which makes a smooth run of the operating system in apple iPhone.

An Android operating system was developed by mostly Google and Open Handset Alliance whereas iOS was developed by Apple Inc. latest stable version in android is android 11 and the latest stable version in Apple is iOS 14.1 since the android is open source thus there are lots of things that can change you can say almost everything and apple is not open source so It is not allowed any kind of modification unless you jailbreak it. android allows file transfer easily and the plug and play option is also available so that you can easily copy data into the device but iOS doesn’t allow it without iTunes software ( made by apple inc.). Android devices provide virtual assistance named Google assistance and Apple provides Siri which is also virtual assistance.

Android belongs to the Linux family whereas iOS belongs to the Unix family, with an A-series processor and hassle-free operating system iPhone easily beat the Samsung Galaxy and Google Pixel which is running on Qualcomm’s Snapdragon series because of customization the OS make it slow.
