For people that don’t know what iOS means, it is the iPhone mobile operating system created by Apple inc. which has revolutionized what people are able to do with Apple gadgets like the iPhone, iPad and the iPod touch. It is the second most popular operating system after Android.

One of the great things with the iOS is with the user interface which allows users to interact with the operating system using direct manipulations such as swipe, tap, pinch, reverse pinch, etc. The ease of the interface is what has really made iOS the darling of regular users.

The history of the iOS is pretty remarkable on it’s own. In 2005, when Steve Jobs was planning the iPhone, he wanted to either shrink the Mac or enlarge the iPod so he pitted the Mac and iPod teams against each other to come up with a great idea. The Mac team won and came up with the iPhone OS. The guy that was in charge of coming up with the iPhone OS , Scott Forstall from the Mac team also came up with the software development kit (SDK), which enabled developers to write software code and build iPhone apps with minimal training.

Well, as time went on, people started realizing the power of these operating systems both on the iPhone and the Android especially with lack of privacy and the permission to acquire peoples’ private information or data. The biggest disadvantage was that because these companies are centralized, they had most of the power in what they did with the information of the people they acquired and their centralized servers were also prone to hacking. Everyone knows that once your private data is out there, it is nearly impossible to make it private again. Since people have come to rely on their operating systems and it has become a big part of their personal lives, most people felt powerless to fight these centralized organizations.

When Bitcoin was invented, people discovered the power of the the blockchain not only to send and receive value without any centralized entity but also the potential to be able to operate as a decentralized operating system. One of the early cryptocurrencies to adopt a decentralized operating system using smart contracts was Ethereum. This was groundbreaking until people realized how slow and expensive it was to use. Regular folks don’t want to pay for every transaction or wait more than two seconds to use any app.

This was how EOSIO software was born so that people can be able to use apps running on smart contracts without having to pay for these transactions and also not having to wait a long time for their transactions to go through.

After EOSIO ran into issues with costs of building apps due to speculation in one of the things required to build these decentralized applications called RAM, paying to create new accounts to interact with the apps and other issues that are being solved as we speak, some of the developers that were involved in launching the EOS network, came together for solutions. This was how Telos was born.

Telos will be the decentralized operating system that will enable developers build groundbreaking decentralized applications(dApps) where regular folks don’t have to pay for accounts, their privacy is totally theirs and there is no centralized entities that can be hacked for their private information. Telos will be providing tutorials and smart contract templates for developers so that they can build groundbreaking dAPPs pretty easily when it launches. One of the wonderful things with the Telos operating system is that organisations can build proprietary dApps so that no other entity can use their code to replicate their dApp.

I believe that just as Apple gave us the iPhone operating system (iOS), Telos is about to give the world the Telos operating system (TLOS) to build epic applications that will once again change how humans and machines interact!
