    Both operating systems have been created for touch screen devices such as smart phones and tablets.
    The substantive differences between Apple's iOS and Google's Android are these:

    Android
    Linux based OS that uses a runtime application engine similar to Java.
    The OS is provided free by Google, and is used by numerous hardware manufacturers.
    Apps are downloaded from the Google Play Store

    Apple iOS
    XNU microkernel based OS using proprietary abstraction layers created by Apple.
    The OS is provided by Apple on Apple branded hardware only.
    Apps are downloaded from the Apple App Store.
