$scope vs. $rootScope in AngularJs

$scope vs $rootScope in AngularJs

The angular $scope is a JavaScript object which provide the connectivity between the controller and the view. All the model data bind on view (DOM element) using the $scope for a controller.

The angularjs $rootScope is the scope and one application can have only one $rootScope and It use like global variable and access in across application. The angular $rootScope is parent scope and $scopes are child scopes.

The $rootScope objects updates under a specific controller $scope not for all global controllers.

The angular $scope can't be used outside the controller and its only for current controller but the $rootScope can be used anywhere and Its available globally in the application.
All app has one-and-only $rootScope and its lifecycle is the same as the app and its all controllers can have.

The $apply and $watch are scope methods. You can see the working life-cycle in below image.

    app.controller('Ctrl1', ["$scope", "$rootScope", function($scope, $rootScope) {
      $scope.scopeMsg = 'This is $scope.';
      $rootScope.rootScopeMsg = 'This is $rootScope.';

    //This is Ctrl2.
    app.controller('Ctrl2', ["$scope", "$rootScope", function($scope, $rootScope) {
      $scope.scopeMsg = $rootScope.rootScopeMsg;

<body ng-app="myApp">
  <h1>$rootScope vs $scope in AngularJs</h1>
  <div class="border" ng-controller="Ctrl1">
    <div>Result of Ctrl1 $scope : {{scopeMsg}}</div>
    <div>Result of Ctrl1 $rootScope : {{rootScopeMsg}}</div>
