Maybe Apple yet to release the biggest invention but currently, Google is dominating the department.
Apple has upgraded the message with the payment feature that allows you to transfer money. You can pay to your friend with the help of Apple using the iMessage and also can transfer the money in bank accounts.I this section the Apple is a clear winner as Google message app is just the messenger and it does not allow any kind of payment or money transfer.

Yet iOS contains way better feature as compared to its prior version but lost the fight to Google's Android O.
Google has announced to enroll the Android O for the users somewhere around October while iOS 11 is expected to come in September.
