Kate MacKenzie goes back to basics on where Android cannot match Apple’s iPhone:
Here’s the math. iOS 10 is a few weeks away and a year after launching iOS 9 about 90-percent of all iOS devices have been upgraded to the latest, including my mother’s iPad mini and her iPhone (my father upgrades, too, but he doesn’t bother to call me). About a year ago Google pushed out the latest Android version, code-named Marshmallow. A year later slightly over 10-percent of all Android smartphones and tablets have Marshmallow installed, but a few hundred million such devices will never, ever see it. The rest are running even older versions of Android, and, likewise, will never upgrade to the latest versions.
