    Counting everyone on Android 4.0 or higher together is really cheating. If the update issue was solved, they would all be running the same version. If the versions are sufficiently different to be named, they are not the same OS.

    Android continues to be fragmented, although it is slowly improving.

    Same could actually be said of iOS6 although less transparent. It is fragmented in reality as iOS6 on the iPhone 4 and lower has different feature sets than the iOS6 on the iPhone 4S/5. Unified in name only.

    Well the reason why we have approx 90% users moving to latest version of iOS is more to do with the fact that Apple updates are available instantly across all their devices be it iPhone3, iPhone 4/4S or iPhone 5.

    Unlike that Android is controlled by so many OEM’s and the release of latest version is so tightly controlled by them. So there are very little options with the end user even if he/she wants to upgrade.

    This poses a big challenge for companies such as ours, who are into Mobile Application Development and supporting all these versions is like a nightmare. But we manage it pretty well :)
