Bill Gates Prefers Android To iOS And Here Is His Reason

Bill Gates said while he had an iPhone, he actually used an Android handset on a daily basis

This week, Bill Gates – Microsoft co-founder, joined his first meeting on Clubhouse – an invite-only app for conversations that is gaining momentum recently. The interview saw him answering some questions as part of a book tour.

He was interviewed by Andrew Ross Sorkin, an American journalist, and author. Since Clubhouse is on iOS at the moment, one question arises, whether Gates prefers iOS or Android.

He said while he had an iPhone, he actually used an Android handset on a daily basis. Sorkin then asked whether he chose this operating system was because of a religious preference he had between iOS vs. Android.

Gates denied any purity here saying that the reason was he used to the way many Android manufacturers pre-installed Microsoft software and how they connect up with the OS.

Paul Davison, Clubhouse co-founder was in the room and he said the Android version of the app is on its way.

Back in 2019, Gates admitted that losing Android as an operating system was one of the greatest mistakes of all time for Microsoft.

To be fair, it wasn’t Gates who served as Microsoft's CEO but Steve Ballmer between 2000 and 2014. He looked down on the iPhones but obviously, Apple was the one having the last laugh as Window Phone failed to make an impression and was later abandoned.

Gates said during the interview that while he didn’t have an easy relationship with the famous Steve Jobs, he thought Jobs was a unique character.

Other topics covered by the interview include climate change, the global health crisis, and "How to Avoid a Climate Disaster” – Gates’ new book.
