While Apple is sometimes accused of copying features from Android
, there are plenty of instances in which other tech companies have released products that at least somewhat resemble Apple's.
This is especially true when it comes to the iPhone.
Here's a look at some of the design aspects gadget makers have copied from Apple over the years.
Huawei's new Android phone comes with a pressure sensitivity feature called Force Touch. Apple introduced a similar feature with the same name a year earlier with the Apple Watch.
Gold smartphones became a fad after Apple released the iPhone 5S in gold back in 2013.
Some new Samsung phones come with an all-glass back just like the iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S.
There are some Android phones that look a lot like the iPhone 6/6S. Lenovo's S90 Sisley, for example, has the same rounded metal edges and overall design as the iPhone 6.
Lightweight laptops with wedge-shaped, metal designs became popular after Apple released the MacBook Air in 2010.
Samsung's Gear S2 has circular app icons just like the Apple Watch.
