That should work. My current app has a header and footer that are
definitely Android Material design. To make the header like iOS I need to
center the text and use a chevron instead of an arrow. There are other
things like that, minor tweaks mostly, but if you have an original layout
you're probably in good shape. I followed the Material Design guidelines
strictly, right down to the pixel for size and placement.
Apple's submission guidelines state that an app that looks like "another
OS" is grounds for rejection but I don't know how much they enforce that.
It's been a while since I needed to submit to the App Store, but I'll be
finding out soon.
I have to agree with Swami that I prefer Android OS. I think Apple has lost
its way over the years.
