Apple Now Shows iOS “Fragmentation” Just Like Android
Android’s “fragmentation” used to be a great deal worse that it is today, with the majority of users on older versions of the platform. However Android’s developer dashboard now shows that just under 59 percent of Android users are on OS 4.0 or higher (Ice Cream Sandwich or Jelly Bean).
Duplicating the long-standing Android developer dashboard, Apple just introduced a comparable developer display. It shows what Chitika reported several weeks ago, that over 90 percent of iPhone and iPad users are on the latest version of the OS.
Apple’s next OS, iOS 7, is now out in a developer release. A general release consumer version of the new “flat” OS won’t be out until fall — to coincide with the introduction of the new iPhone “5S” hardware.
