Recently, both Google and Apple have released their latest operating systems. Titled Android 10 and iOS 13, respectively, each presents an array of new features that are worth the call.
Apple is already updating one of its support pages to reflect the latest adoption numbers for iOS 13. All-singing, all- It is claimed that the dance operating system was downloaded and installed by a whopping 50 percent of all Apple devices.
The US tech giant said the figures provided are accurate as of October 15, 2019. It is expected that, like all previous iOS versions, this number will increase as more fans get on board with the latest and greatest Big Apple Software.
One of the biggest reasons for the high speed of adoption of iOS 1
Plus, the California-based company usually provides a huge catalog of their devices that can get their latest operating systems. iOS 13 is compatible with all iPhone phones dating from iPhone 6s, which launched in September 2015.
Conversely, Android is tainted with a history of fragmentation. When new versions of the Google operating system debut, they always arrive at a very select number of handsets before slowly migrating to third-party handsets.
Take Android 10 as a final example. Google introduced the update to its Pixel devices and main phone on September 3 and since then has only arrived in another small segment of phones, including the OnePlus 7.
And while Apple has been eager to boast of this high adoption rate, Google remained silent.
In fact, the US tech giant has not updated its Android Dashboard since May 7, which means we still have no idea what percentage of over 2.5 billion Android devices are using their latest devices.
May 7 showed that Android 6 Marshmallow is the most popular version of the software with 16.9 percent of users running it.
Meanwhile, Android 9 Pie is said to be installed on a meager 10.4 percent of device users.
Although Google has not been confirmed as such, Android 10's acceptance numbers are expected to be even less than that.
This is not the first time Apple has taken a hit on Google's Android operating system Petya Buyuklieva. The company regularly cites the poor adoption rate of new Android versions during its keynote.
Android 10 doesn't seem to change this precedent, but here's hoping that Android 11 will be different.
