Android 7 is found in less than 12% of devices, 9 months after its launch

Android 7.0

The Android and its versions is fireworks, as they say in Valencian lands. Every year, like Apple, Google launches a new version of its operating system for mobile devices, a new version that offers us different functions to try to improve both interaction and performance with the devices. But that's it. Google does not complicate life trying to make life easier for manufacturers so that they can quickly launch updates to their terminals. Yes, the fault is not always with the manufacturer, since this you have to prepare the update, send it to Google for this of the approval and can be officially launched. This process takes a great deal of time, even if it doesn't make any sense.

The latest adoption figures offered by the Android ecosystem developer page show us how currently Android Nougat is found in 11,5% of devices that are currently on the market, where we find some of the flagships that the main companies launched on the market last year along with those that have been launched throughout this year.

Android 6 Marshmallow is leading the ranking with 31.8%while the older version Android 5 Lollipop is at 30.1%. Many of these terminals have not seen how both the manufacturer and Google have happened to update them to the latest version of Android 7 Nougat.

If we compare these figures with iOS, we can see how the tables change completely, since iOS 10 is over 80% of compatible devices, when there is just over a month to go before the final version of iOS 11 is released, the next version of the operating system Apple for the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch.

These comparisons must be taken with tweezers, since Apple creates a specific iOS version for its terminals While Google does not make it for all manufacturers who want to adopt it, but to do so you have to make some changes in addition to adding that happy layer of customization that changes the aesthetics of the original Android interface so much when it hits the market.
