    Default Java is a platform independent. But, Why do the apps written in java run only on android?

    I remember studying in core java that I read that one of the features of java is that it is platform-independent.

    Reference: https://www.interviewbit.com/blog/features-of-java/

    Now I am researching on android development, android apps are developed using core java. Then why is it that those apps are not supported in Windowsphone or ios?

    The apk files have Android dependencies.
    I don't know that there is a JVM that runs on an Android device. A JVM is required to run java programs.
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.
