Wait. What? This cannot be right. Android OS 9 came out a year ago. iOS 13 came out last week.
iOS 13 user adoption is already off to an impressive start. Just a week after its release, the most recent iteration of Apple’s mobile OS is already on 20% of devices. And if history is any indication, that figure could soon rise to 50% in just two more weeks. Last year, for example, iOS 12 adoption reached 53% just three weeks after its release.
What about Android? Last year’s Android?
Specifically, only 10.4% of Android users were running Android Pie as of May of this year. Put differently, Android Pie adoption was still stuck at 10.4% a full 8 months after its release.
Apple gives every customer five or six years of an improved OS every year.
