Exclude android users

How do I make sure my ad only appears for Mac users and iOS users? Or, if that's not possible, is there any way to exclude Android users? I looked everywhere, and I couldn't find the settings to specify the demographics at a level that you can for Facebook ads. Honestly, between the user interface of the website and the technical support so far, I don't know why I'm even still trying to use AdWords, but I promised myself I'd try to run at least one ad campaign on Google. I saw a few posts in this community, but most seem to imply there's no real demographic targeting. I can't imagine that's true, since Google is the king of ads, right?
