Huawei HarmonyOS is better than Apple!

Yes, that’s right! Huawei’s self-developed operating system – Harmony is far better than Apple’s. Comparatively, HarmonyOS serves many gadgets, including smartphones, tablets, smartwatches, smart TVs, smart cars, and more.

Meanwhile, Apple uses a separate operating system for every smart device. For instance, iOS, iPadOS, macOS, and so on. This shows that HarmonyOS is quite efficient and is easily compatible with a variety of gadgets.

Moreover, Huawei is constantly making efforts to make the respective operating system bigger than Android and iOS. And it seems like we don’t have to wait much to catch such changes in the HarmonyOS ecosystem.
