Apple’s senior vice president of marketing – Phil Schiller attacked Samsung in an interview, few hours before the Galaxy S IV unveiling today.
The war between these tech giants has reached at personal level. Today in an interview with Forbes, Apple’s vice president of marketing Phil Schiller criticized Samsung for unveiling its Galaxy S IV Flagship with a year old OS that is Android’s Jelly bean and further claimed that Samsung needs to update the OS for its new flagship. Schiller in an interview with Forbes told that Samsung has a year old OS running on its Smart Phone, out of which only 16% of the Android Gang is running a year old OS and rest is running a two years old OS on their Smart Phones.
“We are hearing this week that the Samsung Galaxy S4 is being rumored to ship with an OS that is nearly a year old,” Schiller criticized. “Customers will have to wait to get an update.”
Schiller appreciating Apple said that Apple has been doing regular updates and today more than 50% of its users are updated on the latest iOS Version that is iOS 6. According to Schiller, Apple has released the most advanced iOS that is much preferable over Android’s Jelly Bean by users around the globe. In his statement he added that Android users would need to wait to get an update because Galaxy S IV will be packed with 4.2.1 OS Jelly Bean. However, this update of Android 4.2.1 Jelly Bean sounds minor update, but nothing can be said on the features that Samsung will introduce in it.
