Tenth Version of Android Adopted at the Highest Rate So Far
Latest Google's operating system, Android 10, was adopted at a faster rate than any other previous version of the mobile software. Google accredited the uptake to more efficient delivery of updates.
The company noted Android 10 was operating on 100 million devices five months after the launch of the system in September 2019. Its adoption surpassed uptake of Android Pie, Google’s ninth OS version, by 28 percent. Google explained the milestone was achieved after the introduction of new capabilities to bring updates more uniformly, quickly, and efficiently in the past few years.
A chart from the company showed a total of 400 million users running the software on their mobile devices 300 days after its release. The pile represents 16 percent of of the 2.5 billion Android devices in use at end-May 2019. As a comparison, Apple’s iOS 13 had been deployed on 92 percent of iPhones and iPads released over the past four years as of 17 June, data from Apple showed.
