Google recently issued the stable Android 14 and we now have the latest statistics on the distribution of the Android version, which tell how Android is adopted by users and which version is the most popular. The last time this happened was in May. Check out the details below.
Latest Android version distribution statistics
Based on recent statistics, Android 13 is the most used Android version as it has acquired a 22.4% share, which has seen a significant increase since May. Then it was 15%! Rapid software updates on most smartphones could be the reason for their rapid adoption, and this could continue to grow!
The second most used Android version may come as a surprise; it is Android 11 with a 21.6% share. There has been a decline in adoption since the last set of data released, but this is still impressive considering it has taken second place even now.
This is followed by Android 10 (16.1%) and Android 12 (15.8%), which is quite surprising. It feels like Android 12 hasn’t been the likable choice and people would rather prefer older versions! The list continues with Android 9 with a share of 10.5%, Android 8.1 with a share of 5.6%, Android 8 and 6 with a share of 1.9%, Android 7.1 and 7 with a share of 1, 3%, Android 5.1 with a share of 1.2%, Android 4.4 with 0.4%. % share, and Android 5 with a 0.2% share.
The statistics show how even older Android versions remain active, which shows how erratic Android distribution can be. It goes without saying that Android 14 is currently out of the picture as it has simply become stable and has yet to reach more smartphones. We’ll have more to say about this once a few months pass, giving us a better idea of how Android 14 is handled.
We’ll keep you posted on the new stats as they come in, so stay tuned. And what do you think of the above data? Don’t forget to share it with us in the comments below.
