With Apple's iOS 11 getting a general release and Google rolling out Oreo, the latest version of Android, users of these respective mobile operating systems can't wait to finally get their hands on the various tweaks and enhancements these updates bring to the table.

iOS 11 will deliver tons of new features like iMessage tweaks, person-to-person Apple Pay, smarter Siri with translation support, new Camera and Photo effects/filters, redesigned Control Center and lock screen, improved Apple Maps, new Do Not Disturb Mode, HomeKit 2 and a redesigned App Store.

Tip within a tip: Here are other iOS 11 features that Apple kept secret.

Android Oreo will bring under-the-hood enhancements like faster boot times, better battery management, "Fluid" multitasking and "Wi-Fi Aware." (Note: Oreo is now available for Google Pixel, Google Pixel XL, Nexus 6P, Nexus 5X or Pixel C with more device support coming soon.)

Although there are differences between iOS and Android, they are getting features that make them increasingly similar to each other.

Here's a look at some of these new features and how they stack up:

Autofill

Have you ever noticed that, when you're on your computer, you could start filling out passwords and suddenly the rest gets filled in automatically? If you're using Google Chrome and some other browsers, that autofill feature can save you a lot of time.

With Android Oreo, you can now autofill information, including user names, passwords and addresses. If you enable it, you can log in and fill out forms on any app quicker than ever.
