With over 70% of the global market, Google’s Android has a much larger number of users than its main rival, Apple’s iOS. The latter’s slice of the global mobile OS pie is close to 30%. But iOS has a huge advantage over Android when it comes to a very important feature-updates.
Further driving iOS 14 adoption is a number of features that iPhone users were looking forward to receiving once they installed the new version of iOS. This includes Android-style widgets, the App Library (which makes it quicker and easier to find particular apps, Car Keys, and more. Car Keys allows the iPhone to act as a virtual car key to lock and unlock compatible vehicles using NFC.
Over 3 trillion data points were used to compute the adoption rate. After iOS 14’s 90% tally, iOS 13 is next with a 4.85% rate followed by the 4.62% of devices running a iOS 12 or older.
Apple recently announced that it will hold its 2021 World Wide Developers Conference (WWDC) starting on June 7th. Like last year’s event, this will be streamed live to multiple Apple sites including the Developer app on the iPhone.
