Both Apple and Google have published OS distribution figures in the past few days, and they make for fairly predictable reading.
iOS 7 has now reached a whopping 74% of iPhones, iPads and iPod touches, while the latest version of Android, KitKat, is miles behind on 1.1%.
Over on Apple’s Support Center thingy, we’re told almost three quarters of iDevices are rocking the newest version of iOS, followed by iOS 6 on 22%, and “Earlier” on 4%.
Those figures were measured by visits to the App Store over the seven-day period ending December 1.
Meanwhile, over on Android Developers, we’re told that the latest and greatest version appears on just one in every hundred devices. They’ll largely be Nexus devices, we imagine, though various other flagships are in line for an update in the coming weeks and months.
Interestingly, that means more Android owners are using 2010’s Froyo than KitKat. Amazing stuff.
The Android distribution figures for the seven-day period ending December 2 look like this:
- Froyo (Android 2.2) – 1.6%
- Gingerbread (Android 2.3) – 24.1%
- Honeycomb (Android 3.2) – 0.1%
- Ice Cream Sandwich (Android 4.0) – 18.6%
- Jelly Bean (Android 4.1, 4.2, 4.3) – 54.5%
- KitKat (Android 4.4) – 1.1%
