Developers normally focus on iOS, instead of Android. This is because of the sheer amount of people with money, tend to buy these expensive iPhones. In the 3rd quarter of 2020, iOS generated $19 billion dollars in revenue and Android $10.3 billion. App developers tend to issue more firmware updates for iOS and focus on this ecosystem more than Android. This means it is easier to download ebook, manga, comic, newspaper and magazines.
Many people read on their phones to read ebooks, catch up on the latest news or listen to audiobooks. This is because they are always in your pocket and easily accessible. E-Readers are traditionally much larger than iPhones, so you will not always have it your pocket, instead they are carried in a bag, purse, briefcase or backpack.
