Automatically fill in verification code

Today, when a large number of app registrations or sensitive information needs to be verified, they are usually verified by sending a one-time verification code via SMS, for example, a bank app performs a transfer transaction. On iOS 12, the user does not need to view and then manually/paste the verification code. When the mobile phone receives a message with a verification code, the system automatically retrieves and then provides whether the user automatically fills in the verification code.

Since last year, native Android systems have beenDevelopmentThe user has opened an automatic verification code search function. Users can directly copy the verification code without viewing the message, or appear in a conspicuous position for easy viewing, helping users to complete this daily operation task that is often encountered. In fact, some OEMs, especially those developed by domestic mobile phone manufacturers, have provided users with this function earlier.


We all know that moving expressions are the first to be played by Apple. They are intended to make communication more lively. Therefore, many OEMs follow suit to make this interesting emoticon the latest trend. However, the customization of such emojis through cameras is still a new feature that Samsung AR Emoji added to imitate Apple.

Nowadays, with the new iOS 12 operating system, Apple has added a more personalized Memoji to its expression, supporting the freedom to choose from a wide variety of features, and customizing its own unique personality, Memoji. It also supports blinking and tongue detection. Features, support for capturing a large number of expressions.

Digital health prevention function

In iOS 12, Apple brought the Screen Time screen time function to help users understand and control the time spent interacting with iOS devices. Through tools that provide detailed information and tools, you can see users in different apps andwebsiteTime, as well as daily and weekly activity reports that show the total time a user spent in a single app, the usage of various apps, the number of notifications received, andiPhoneOr the frequency of use of the iPad.

Not only that, the iOS 12 device also supports iCloud family sharing, allowing parents to view their child’s activity reports directly on their iOS devices and limit their iOS device usage times at different times. Anyway, Google announced almost the same features earlier. When Google Family Link was first introduced last year, it allowed parents to lock their children’s devices, set screen time limits, and approve/reject downloads via Google Play.

In addition, at the Google I/O 2018 conference last month, digital health was also an important topic. Android P introduced features such as Dashboard and App Timers to provide true digital monitoring and The management function helps users to get rid of the mobile phone to avoid addiction and indulge, and truly return to real life.

Instant management and group notification functions

One of the best places for the Android operating system is its very sophisticated notification system, and each generation of iOS systems will improve the notification center. The iOS 12 operating system now offers more options for controlling how notifications are sent. Users can choose to close the notification completely or send it directly to the notification center for instant management.

At the same time, iOS 12 also provides Grouped Notifications so that users can more easily view and manage multiple notifications at the same time. However, these features are not new on the Android operating system. Both native and OEM handsets already offer similar or even better notification management capabilities. I believe that in the future update of the iOS system, Apple will also improve the notification center.

Photo sharing suggestions

In addition to the photo backup feature, Google Photos itself actually incorporates many smart features. The new iOS 12 feature now includes sharing suggestions like Google Photos, which makes it easier for users to share photos with friends and reminds friends who receive photos to reply to share photos they’ve taken on the same trip or event.video.

As for the Apple search suggestion feature, it searches for the most relevant events, people, places, groups, categories, and recent searches, or it can use multiple search words in combination to find desired photos. These features are available on the Google Android platform. It has also been around for a long time.

Android and iOS learn from each other

When Apple announces iOS features that are already familiar to Android, or Android introduces some iOS interactive experiences, it is always very hot in the mobile phone industry. Today, these are the functional designs for iOS to get inspiration from the Android system. But last month, Android P also introduced iOS functionality? For example, a modified version of iPhone X gestures appeared on Android P.

In any case, there will be more similar or similar functions between the two mobile platforms in the future, or an improved version. This will be an endless cycle. What do you think of the practice of learning from each other between two platforms?
