I am embarking on a new series of articles addressing various considerations in OS architecture design. Indeed, these considerations are not limited to OS but are applicable to the design of any large-scale software.
I am limited by my capabilities and knowledge and bring a highly subjective view, and there are undoubtedly inadequacies. I am eager to hear different thoughts and perspectives, and through the collision of ideas, we can achieve a deeper understanding.
In my opinion, the core differences between Android and iOS from the OS perspective are primarily manifested in:
- The IPC mechanism between applications and core services
- Platform development environment, including programming languages, IDE tools, and the construction of the developer ecosystem
- Application lifecycle management mechanisms and strategies
- The runtime organizational structure of the kernel and core services
