Android devices are harder to support - the Android OS is fragmented, dozens of manufacturers, hundreds of devices. Nightmare.
I support the decision to let Apple go first - if 50% of customers are more easily supported, get them sorted before the Android stampede.
Plus if there are any glitches common across all the Apple devices, they can put the fix into the initial Android release.
Android users have been spoilt with first releases in the past - we aren’t hard done by.
Ps all you worrying about battery drain, get a power bank and plug it in while flying. Anker make some good 20,000 Mah (about 5 times usual phone battery size) which will keep you flying for ages.
