Apple uses Android-style pie charting to prove fragmentation is not an issue for iOS

Apple is now doing a similar pie chart-y thingy, but it's as if to say "there's nothing to report here," as 93% of its iDevice users are updated with the newest iOS 6, and a very minor fraction is still running older versions of its mobile OS. 

"Fragmentation? What fragmentation?" might have been the working title of the chart you see on the right, which is posted at the iOS Developer Center to orient devs about the most popular version at the moment.
