A simple yet meaningful comparison of two competing mobile systems, Android and iOS. Comparison according to one of the most important parameters for assessing platform development - the degree of fragmentation.
The first diagram is borrowed from Wikipedia, it is given in the section on the history of the development of the Android environment. A riot of colors suggests that both developers and users have many problems from year to year. Because applications that are suitable for one combination of hardware and software may simply not run on another. For the iOS environment, there is no such picture in the electronic encyclopedia, but thanks to the Chitika resource - the following diagram was compiled by its specialists.
As you can see, the picture is fundamentally different, most of the users work under the latest iOS versions, 6th (22%) and 7th (74%), the remaining 4% do not count. There is no trace of harmful fragmentation, and the reason for this is Apple's tough authoritarian policies. Unlike Google, which instructs gadget manufacturers to license new versions of Android, the Apple company deals with this issue on its own. As a consequence, by controlling the release of both software and hardware, Apple reigns supreme. And there are no problems with running old applications in the new version of the OS, and iPhone and iPad owners can easily switch to it every year.
The diagrams compiled by anonymous Mark (data are hidden) will help to compare the state of affairs for in both environments. He brought the data together and tried to match colors and data blocks to demonstrate fragmentation in iOS and Android.

Every time after the release of a new model of "apple" smartphones, search engines note an increase in the number of queries with the phrase "slow iPhone". This is due to the opinion of users that Apple deliberately makes flaws when optimizing iOS updates for outdated devices, in order to increase sales of new models due to this effect
Let's just agree that the platform iOS from Apple, too, is not without drawbacks of fragmentation, but it's nothing compared with the All Android . IOS developers have to optimize their applications for 4 screen resolutions, and also take into account the fact that some users have not yet updated their devices running on outdated versions of the operating system
The Android world is represented by devices of a wide variety of configurations, sizes and hardware modules that perform all sorts of functions. This raises the problem of platform fragmentation - the presence of a huge number of OS and hardware versions prevents the creation of applications that work equally well on all Android devices
An unpleasant incident, the culprit of which was the iPhone 6, occurred the other day in Saudi Arabia, according to the islam-today portal. The "apple" gadget that was in the boy's pants pocket suddenly exploded, which forced the child to receive medical attention
