Additionally, Ionic now uses Capacitor instead of Apache Cordova, Capacitor is a new open-source project by Ionic team, it provides a set of APIs that allows developers to access native features of a device such as Camera, GPS, and more. Capacitor is more easy to use as compared to Cordova, also it provides a more consistent and stable experience for the developers.

Another advantage of using Ionic is that it offers a wide range of pre-built components that can be easily incorporated into your app. These components include things like navigation bars, forms, and buttons, which can help you quickly create a polished and professional-looking app.
