ICS and above now accounts for 61.2-percent of active Android devices.
Google has just released its monthly “Platform Version” numbers for June, which give a snapshot of what version of Android is running on active devices in the world. The data is collected by looking at users who access the Play Store over a 14 day period surrounding the end of the month, in this case ending collection on July 8th. Here’s how the numbers break down:
- Android 1.6
- 2.1 and 2.2 total just 4.6-percent of installs
- Android 2.3 falls just 2.3-percentage points to 34.1-percent of installs
- Android 4.x (“modern” versions) hit 61.2-percent of installs
- up from 58.6-percent
The growth in devices using 4.x comes from a large increase in the install base of Jelly Bean, as the number of phones and tablets accessing the Play Store on Ice Cream Sandwich has actually decreased from month to month. The distribution of Android 1.6 and 3.2 are nearing extinction, sitting at just 0.1-percent each.
