Everybody copies everyone: iOS 9 features inspired by Android | Ars Technica

"Apple announced iOS 9 on Monday, and while watching the keynote, I had just a little bit of déjà vu. Most of iOS 9's new features seem to be squarely aimed at Apple's biggest rival in mobile: Android. Specifically, they were about catching up to Android.

Search improvements, proactive assistance, split screen, and transit directions? It's been done, but the differences are the fun part, so we chased down the new iOS 9 screenshots and compared them to their Android counterparts. It's not just about who copied whom; it's also a chance to look at the different designs of the two operating systems. And hey, Apple isn't the only one taking ideas from a competitor. Android M's selectable app permissions are an exact copy of the iOS model.

Siri and Search are chasing Google Now but hitting Google where it hurts"
