Apple News:Android vs. iOS: Do adoption figures mean anything?
Android vs. iOS: Do adoption figures mean anything? iOS 9 has been out for two days, and it’s already running on more than 20 percent of compatible devices, according to the latest data. In comparison, Google’s latest Android release, version 5.1 Lollipop, is running on just 5.1 percent of devices ten months after it made its public debut.
I guess one major difference between iOS 8 and Lollipop is that when I installed Lollipop on my Nexus7 it ran faster but when I installed iOS 8 on my iPad2, it became a useless brick. This has made me wary to install iOS9 on my new iPad Mini. I think a case could be made that the 20 years of Win32 dominance was largely due to how Microsoft handled upgrades on older hardware.
UPDATE: I'm pleased to report that iOS 9 is working great on my Retina iPad Mini.
