Google has published fresh statistics on the prevalence of different versions of the Android operating system among mobile devices in the world. As of April 2023, the newest operating system – Android 13 (codenamed Tiramisu) – has significantly increased its share.
In January, Android 13 surpassed the 5% share for the first time since its release in August 2022 and debuted in the Google rankings. In April, the share of Android 13 is already 12%.
By comparison, Android 12 (Snow Cone) made its first official appearance on Google’s rankings, almost a year after its release. Now Android 12 is only installed at 13.3%. It appears that Android 13 is well ahead of its predecessor in terms of adoption rate.
As you might expect, the market share of all previous versions of Android has declined. Surprisingly, however, Android 11 (Red Velvet Cake) 2020 still maintains a solid lead with a 23.5% share, well ahead of Android 12 and 12L with a combined share of 16.5%.
The next brainchild of Microsoft will go to rest. The company will stop supporting the Cortana app on Windows at the end of the year.
Microsoft is about to completely stop supporting the Cortana voice assistant. Already from the end of this year, support for this application will cease, although the company has not yet announced the exact date.
In general, this was more than expected, since the assistant introduced in 2015 did not gain popularity from the very beginning, and even Microsoft itself quickly stopped somehow promoting it. Now the company has unveiled the Windows Copilot tool, which will offer much the same as Cortana, only bigger and better.
Actually, in Windows 11, initially Cortana did not have any significant place and did not appear when the OS was first loaded.
However, Microsoft notes that the changes will only affect Cortana on Windows, while the assistant will still be available in Outlook Mobile, Teams Mobile, Microsoft Teams display and Microsoft Teams room.
Android 10 is still much more popular than Android 13. Android version prevalence statistics have appeared
Google, following Apple, published statistics on the prevalence of a particular version of Android.
The most common version is Android 11. This system is installed on 23.1% of all active devices. This is followed by an even older Android 10 with 17.8%, but Android 12 is breathing down its back with 16.3%.
The current Android 13 is only on the fourth line with a share of 14.7%. You can also highlight Android 9, which holds 11.9% of the market. All other versions have less than 10%.
Ahead of the announcement of iOS 17, Apple said that iOS 16 is installed on 81% of all active iPhones
Shortly before the announcement of iOS 17 at WWDC 2023, Apple published statistics regarding the prevalence of iOS 16.
At the moment, the current version of the operating system is installed on 81% of all active iPhones on the market. Another 13% are working with iOS 15 and only 6% are on older versions.
If we talk about smartphones no older than four years, then the distribution looks like this: 90%, 8% and 2%, respectively.
In the case of tablets, iPadOS 16 is installed on 71% of all active iPads. Another 20% remain on iPadOS 15, while older versions are installed on 9% of devices.
