Some of the android features are superb and can be integrated in Apple iOS but still Developers are more interested in developing an app for apple ios first than for android os.These are the 5 main reasons why developers are choosing ios over android ,if you find something more valuable in support or against to the above opinion please don't forget to post it as a comment.
