1. Expected perspective
If you are thinking about future outcomes while choosing between iOS or Android, then you do not need to think much as both of them stand in good stead and will also pick up in the coming years. So if you choose one over the other, there is no chance for you to incur any sort of loss.

2. Location
You should know about the market shares that Apple and Android hold before developing app. As per the reports, the total market share by Apple is lower than Android. There are certain places in the world where Apple is more in demand than Android. Thus the Apple-based products are also asked for over there. The developed countries which have higher standards of living like America, China, Europe, etc prefer using Apple. So you need to always consider the location if you take the right decision regarding which to develop first.

3. Target crowd
To make a deal you need to know your target audience. You need to understand your motives at first and then decide the kind of application you want to develop. You need to be clear about the sort of services that you want your app to provide.Once you get to know about the demographics and behavioural characteristics of your customer like age, gender, occupation, interests, etc then you can find out which device your target crowd will prefer and thus you can opt for the most appropriate platform.

4. Features
iOS is the worldwide famous operating system but it come with certain file system restrictions while Android is an open source operating system which is very user friendly. So you are more free to access and customize it as compared to any iOS based app.

5. Revenue
iOS and Android revenue models are different strategies by Apple and Google respectively. As Android comes with a higher percentage of ad-supported apps but for iOS paid apps is very prevalent. If you are willing to build a free app that can generate revenue through advertising, then Android can any day be a better option for you.

6. App Store launching
An App is of no use if it is not launched after creation. As Google Play Store is more flexible you only need to create an account over there, pay for once and then upload your application, while in Apple App Store the upload process is more complicated and you need to pay for an annual fee. The application process takes more time and you may even get rejected. So make sure you catch hold over the experienced developers who can launch your app on Apple store without any hassle.

7. Loyalty
We all demand for loyalty whenever we decide to take any major decision in life. Similarly while choosing the platform you also look for loyalty. Apple users usually prefer to keep on using Apple products and not shift to other platforms while Android users may switch to Apple products if they start earning more or for any other reason. So choose iOS if you really want to target the utterly elite customers of the society.

So what are you waiting for? Keep the above points in mind and go ahead with the platform you find more suitable to win over the target customers.
