Current Usage Rates of Android Versions Revealed
Although the Android operating system is the biggest competitor of the iOS operating system, there is a serious difference in update speed. The biggest reason for this is that Android is in the hands of Google and companies follow separate distribution policies. Both companies and Google are also working to make version upgrades faster.
The last table announced for the usage rates of Android versions also shows that the desired speeds have started to be reached in terms of version upgrades. Because when we look at the usage rates of Android 13 , we understand that it spreads faster than the old versions.
