A mobile operating system (OS) is software that enables apps and programs to run on smartphones, tablet PCs (personal computers), and other devices. When a mobile device is turned on, it generally displays a screen with icons or tiles that display information and provide access to applications. Cellular and wireless network connectivity, as well as phone access, are all controlled by mobile operating systems.

Symbian OS, iPhone OS, BlackBerry OS from RIM, Windows Mobile, Palm WebOS, Android, and Maemo are some of the smartphone operating systems. Linux is at the root of Android, WebOS, and Maemo. BSD and NeXTSTEP, both Unix-like operating systems, inspired the iPhone OS.

It incorporates the aesthetics of both computer and hand-held devices. For telephony and internet connections, it usually has a cellular built-in modem and SIM tray. When you purchase a smartphone, the manufacturer selects the operating system for that device.
