886 iOS & 835 Android devices. What do you see?

by Volker Weber




Less then 10% of the Android devices are running the latest OS version, compared to about 30% of iOS devices that are running on the latest OS.

Lovely iPhone 3GS has gone. :-(

There’s no Android 3.x!

Bars are suffering from gradients, showing traces of skeuomorphism, hence probably made by Scott Forstall.

@Martin: has there ever been one? ;-)

Android 3.x, that is.

Armin Auth, 2015-08-21

Android 3.x was more or less a beta for Android on tablets. Very few shipped and most actually got an update

A mess. 835 times.

Huge fragmentation, even though these are only two Platforms.

A lot less fragmentation on the Android side than I would have thought. Seems that the platform is improving in that regard (or your reader demographic is...).

An infrstructure that is capable of, pushing updates directly to the devices and one that isn't.

- iOS 8.4.1 was released August 14. One week later (the timing of the post seems conspicuous...) it's running on over 30% of the devices.

- Android 5.1.1 was released in April. Four month later it's on less than 10% of the devices.

- they don't have a policy to enforce a minimum version of iOS (except 6 seems not supported)

- they allow iOS beta versions in production

- there are still some iPhone 4 in use

- I wouldn't want to be in charge of a mobile infrastructure if there was a mayor OS vulnerability around. Like, you know....
