This is why Android will never beat Apple. Apple listen to their customer and never left their customer behind. Yes, I know that Android update depends on manufacturer, but hey, updating devices that already 4 years old? Only apple do that!
and now i feel awesome about my decision to buy iPad air 2 i can have better powerful multitasking
Oops, is the world going backwards? Almost all the features described here were there in Android few years back, in Samsung few years back and even in Windows phone few years back! But the marketing hype of Apple as usual will do the wonder!"our best ever OS yet or Our best ever phone!"
Android users are right afterall. iOS 9 split screen multitasking requires 2GB DRAM so all devices except for iPad Air 2 are obsolete.
And yet again Apple copycats. Even transit maps. Not talking about dualwindow that has been copycatted from Windows and Android.
Android already have all this, but google is so lazy that it isn't native. Google lazy lazy lazy lazy lazy lazy lazy lazy lazy lazy lazy lazy lazy lazy lazy lazy lazy .
I love android, but i'm not stupid to think google is doing all they can do. They are far from this.
So that's it. Just multiwindow. Siri and Maps features are just US services.
Brazilian, 08 Jun 2015Now you're talking that's the real multitasking not a bogus multitasking on android. Apple the... moreit's multiwindow, not multitasking. apps still will suspend when they are not active.

Why will I give up my phone which will be supported for the next 3-4 years? Or in this case. 5 years. This is like Samsung release an Android M update for the galaxy S2.

Oh my god everyone look at iPad 2 from iOS 4 to iOS 9 that's amazing Apple is really keeping their old devices up to date. Apple is the best

FDE is nice but pushing WiFi profiles, etc is kind of useless to most ... moreAnd yes I agree. Most people will play Candy crush on a large screen and think its a good phone. They have no idea about FDE and its implications or any other security and OS features.
But as for your question. There are many many things iOS does better than Android.
For example. if you have a company and you want to buy a phone for everyone for the next four years. Will you buy an Android which will be stuck without updates within a year or two? Or will you buy a phone which will be updated immediately and is covered with excellent customer support. Not to mention the excellent enterprise tools.
Even as a consumer, I will never buy android for many reasons. Updates are a joke. Customer support is nearly non existent. Encryption is poorly implemented and bugs are rarely fixed (Android lollipop still has the mm-qcamera-daemon bug, for which there is no solution but a full factory reset)
My experience with Apple has been excellent. Apple fixed my 4S for water damage out of warranty. For absolutely free. Android OEMs sell you the phone and kick you out of the door. From their staff in the stores to their phone customer service, its excellent the whole time (Apple's).
