Android itself is a reliability tag for any smartphone besides iPhones due to its strong privacy policy and regular security updates.

Informatively, to determine the performance of various Android versions, Google once provided monthly updates on a web page, which can now be accessed through the Android Studio development environment only. However, the web page now got slower; instead of being updated monthly, it now updates on a quarterly basis.

Notably, Android 13 made its way to the market back in August, but it first appeared in the statics in January 2023. As per January’s statics, this OS has reached more than 5% of devices in just five months, which now extended to more than 12%. Informatively, the previous Android 12 reached 13.3% of devices within a year of its launch, and it is possible that Android 13 may surpass it in nearly no time due to its speedy adoption.

Let us inform you the South Korean firm has played a huge role in Android 13’s speedy adoption as it holds remarkable market shares.

Developers should maintain compatibility

This data will surely be helpful for app developers so that they can manage their applications. Developers need to adopt the new features of the latest Operating System in order to maintain their app’s compatibility to cover the widest possible user base. Besides the compatibility, it is also necessary for developers to concerts about security updates as most devices are currently running Android 11 or previous. 

It is frigid that most of the app developers aim to focus on the latest OS versions and devices only, which puts the older OS or device users’ security at risk.
