Operating systems are essentially how users interact with their computing device (computer, phone, tablet, smart watch etc.)

There are many different types of operating systems in use in computers, but some of the most common are:

  • Windows
  • Android
  • iOS
  • MacOS
  • Chrome

Logically, the operating system is computer software that “makes” the hardware from a user perspective. Operating systems are the platform that apps run on to provide different functions and services.
