IMHO, iOS is only marginally more secure. I think I has to do with the fact that developing for iOS ends up to be less work than for Android and before I catch flak for that (I actually prefer Android myself), let me explain: there is exactly one iOS. Yes, there are versions, but essentially, one iOS and it's built by Apple. With Android, there are so many different variants out there, not to mention versions. Sure, 2 phones may both have Android 8.0, but the device manufacturers tweak Android to their liking. In addition, only Apple makes the iPhone/iPad and yes, there are different versions, but consider this: As of 2015, there were over 24,000 different Android devices from over 1,300 different manufacturers. Can you imagine what those numbers are now? It's FAR EASIER to develop an app to work on one manufacturer's devices than it is to make sure it works on 1,300.DJI is in a partnership with apple and dji don’t really like Android because it’s opened sourced software (open) to hacking etc You imagine being on the field with your brand-new mavic air and I come along and fly just the same distance as you with my phantom 3 std firmware hacked using a Android phone of some sort and in regards to what ram your device has I’m not sure as I’ve used a iPhone 4s up to my current iPhone witch is a iPhone 6s Plus with little to no problems one thing I will say I know from experience is whatever phone you have turn off auto updates to dji go app they have an habit of messing them up from time to time and get your head round RTH function it will save your bird one day
I would recommend changing your password though. If you're using the default still, it's very easy to figure it out and then anyone can connect to your drone. I would imagine doing so might make it possible for them to change the home point to their location, initiate return-to-home and then, when it lands, make if with your quad. Either that, or change the return-to-home altitude to a lower value and initiate the return-to-home, causing your quad to collide with something. I don't know for certain if this is possible, but by changing my password, I won't ever have to find out the hard way.Back to OP, yes, DJI-GO is very RAM hungry and I was advised that the minimum one should go for is 2Gb. Not having a lot of spare cash for what is, after all, a hob by, I ended up buying a Lenovo Tab 3 8" TB3-850F Android Quad Core 1.3Ghz 2 GB 16 GB. I has the required 2Gb but even with this, when flying, the video on the screen can be jerky but the resultant video file from the SD card is smooth. RAM is vital IMO!!
I've never been asked for a password, just fired up the control unit with the Tab on it, switched on the drone and they sync every time, so far!
You can try installing OSX in a virtual machine. Basically, you install a program called VirtualBox or VMWare. It is a program that sets aside a portion of your hard-drive and then treats it like a separate computer... a virtual computer. You can actually install just about any operating system in it. For your purpose, just install macOS on that virtual computer. Now, whenever you need to run Apple applications (such as QuickTime in your case), you would just run VirtualBox and then choose the macOS virtual computer you created. There are several tutorials online to help you out.Speaking of Apple and dji, for whatever stupid reason I recorded some clients footage in mov. format last night.
What a cockup. No matter what software I use the footage is unusable.
I can only open it on my missus MacBook which is another pos.
