Latest iOS distribution stats show iOS 10 is now on 87% of all iOS devices

That's merely a month and so before iOS 11 hits us, and it is quite likely that it will enjoy a wide adoption merely after a week or so after Apple releases it. Around 9% of Apple's devices are running iOS 9.
Furthermore, around 3% of all devices are powered by an earlier version of the operating system.
Meanwhile, the situation over at Android's bandcamp is a bit bleaker - merely 11.5% of all active Android devices are powered the latest official version of Android Nougat, whereas the majority of devices, some 31.8%, are running on Android Marshmallow. Of course, what really matters is the Android security patch level, but it's still painful to know that the vast majority of Android users are enjoying a two-year old variation of the OS.
Speaking of iOS 11, feel free to check out our preview of that one, as well as our round-up with all the important new features that are incoming.

Well considering 630 million Androids sold this year, and 1.28 billion sold last year. That means with 11.5% gives you 220 million Android smartphones with the latest Nougat update. Besides even if Apple has more iOS devices running iOS. They certainly won't get all latest features on iOS 11. For instance only iPhone 6s's, and iPhone 7's, plus iPad pros will get ARkit. The rest can't get that new iOS 11 feature.

That's only because it bugs the hell out of you every time you turn the thing on. Most people just give in after a while. Once its installed, there's no going back even if it does make your device slow down to a crawl.

You can stop iOS from doing those updates by turning off automatic downloads in the App Store. It won't prevent the current update from pestering you, but it will stop future ones from doing so. It's under Settings, iTunes and App Store, and then you scroll down to automatic downloads and turn off the one for "Updates".

85%(Android) vs 14%(iOS), that's why iOS 10 won. *sarcastic

" But it's still painful to know that the vast majority of Android users are enjoying a two-year old variation of the OS" Even those 2 year old versions of android are more advanced and have more features than IOS 10 and IOS 11. Andriod Lollipop and Marshmallow had file managers and thats just coming in Ios 11. And on my Note 4 I had multi window on it the day it came and it was on Lollipop. So yeah im sure there's things a Android device on 2 major software updates behind can do things an Iphone can dream of :D Android Nougat will be what IOS 12 or 13 will be.

But that is the problem most iFans do not understand. 87% of iOS users have iOS 10, but right now 100% of Android users have iOS 11.
