Java is a core language of Android OS whereas C++/Swift is the core language of iOS. The developer has to write up more code in Java compared to the C++/Swift language. Writing up lengthy code required more time thus delaying the process in launching an app.
iOS has a limited number of devices compared to Android. Samsung, HTC, Xiaomi, Vivo, Oppo, etc. all these vendors have adopted Android. They manufacture devices with different screen solution, OS version, and hardware. Android app developer has to keep these points in his/her mind while developing an app whereas it's not the case with iOS app developer. Complexity increases when you have to build an app for different screen resolutions and OS versions.
iOS releases regular software updates not only for their latest smartphones but also for old generation phones. If you look out to iPhone 5s which was launched in 2013 is still running on latest iOS OS version 12.0. Unfortunately, it's not the case with Android devices.
