iOS 8 is now on 68% of iOS devices — Apple
Latest numbers officially posted by the iPhone maker has revealed that the Apple iOS 8 is now installed on 68 % of all iOS devices. These devices include, iPhones, iPads and iPods.
The figures are far very much impressive than Google’s Android whose version 5.0 Lollipop is yet to appear on the charts while Android 4.4 KitKat, released nearly two years ago (2013) runs on barely 39.1 percent of available Android devices.
Apple released the iOS 8 in 2014 September and has since gone on to back up the software with timely updates and bug fixes coming with minor version upgrades– the latest being iOS 8.2 beta 3 (12D5452a) that was released on December 18 2014 (22 days ago).
However, it’s important to note that Apple is able to keep users up to date due to the monopoly of the iOS ecosystem. Being the producer of both hardware and software makes it easy for the Cupertino tech company to churn out these updates compared to Android OS where upon release by Google, OEMs modify and provide these updates at free will.
