Over the past years, Android and iOS have evolved to provide the best experience for their users. Of course, in this development, it is clear that both Google and Apple are coming to take innovations from their competitors to achieve a better software experience.

However, when a new iPhone or Android phone is released, it is also common to see new features that are already in the market. In fact, with every new presentation of the iPhone, it is very easy to find a complaint on social networks that says “It’s already been in Android for a long time.”

However, the above also happens when Samsung, Google or even Xiaomi release new phones, and sometimes there are functions that come from the iPhone.

What did the new iPhone 13 devices copy from Android?

Two of the most interesting features of the iPhone Pro which many Android phones in the market already had are Macro photography and 120Hz refresh rate.

ProMotion (120 Hz) isn’t new to Apple products, as the iPad Pro was already able to achieve this refresh rate, but it’s the first time an iPhone has been able to offer such a high adaptive refresh rate.

On the other hand, it was strange that despite the importance of photography at Apple, their phones were not able to offer macro photography, that is, the ability to capture something from a distance of 2 cm.

Macro photography is so popular on Android that most mid-range phones are even capable of shooting at close range with the right focus.

Something that distinguishes iPhone 13 Pro

One of the things that has been proven this week is that the iPhone 13 Pro is still the best phone on the market for video recording and content creators.

iPhone 12 Pro became the first phones in the world to be able to record and edit with Dolby Vision. This year, the iPhone 13 Pro can do that and also record with ProRes Video.

So far, no Android phone can record and render editing with Dolby Vision, although the best Samsung phones allow it to do so with HDR10, Dolby Vision’s competitor.

Also, this year’s iPhones have a “Cinema Mode” feature that allows you to apply blur after shooting on the parts that the user wants to obtain results similar to those applied in films and short films. So far in 2021, many Android phones have sought to offer a cinematic recording experience, but nothing (yet) is capable of doing so.
