A new study by mobile diagnostics firms Blancco Technology Group (BTG) recently reported that Apple’s iPhones and iPads are considered less reliable than Android Devices.
Apple Losing Battle against Android Devices
According to the report, Apples Devices experienced a greater failure rate as compared to Android. The reason behind this was the existence of bugs in iOS 10 update accompanied by further issues like very famous app Instagram crashing the most at a rate of 14% and Snapchat at 12%.
iPhone 6 suffered the highest failure rate of 13%. IPhone 5s and 6s were also in the list with failure rate of 9%.
“If an iOS device exceeds a certain internal temperature threshold, it could have a ripple effect on other aspects of the device’s performance,” said BTG
Overheating is cited as the most common problem faced by iPhone users, this problem leads to many other issues at the same time. For example, “overheating could lead to the device no longer charging. It could also cause the display screen to dim or go black altogether. Other residual effects could be a weakened carrier signal or the camera flash being disabled temporarily,” BTG further said in its report.
Pokemon Go considered “one of the most unstable iOS apps” due to app crashing 5% of the time in the third quarter. However, the problems didn’t end here but are further assisted by headphone problem at 11%.

On the other hand, Android company Samsung had a device failure rate of 11%. Just like Apple users, android users suffered from battery drain and USB problems. Which might balance out any differences between Apple’s and Android devices.
“Battery charging ranked in the list of the top five performance issues plaguing Android devices in the third quarter.” Richard Stiennon, chief strategy officer at Blancco Technology Group said.
