Yeah, 640kb should be enough for everyone, if you really think about it… I mean, developers are so fucking lazy, amirite? Just write highly optimized hand-tuned assembly, you morons!
Also @Fishbreath why would you link to any other source except Google for Android versions?
LOL @ Oreo numbers 🤣
The case for “newer OS versions = newer hardware” is quite strong on Android because most Android vendors never upgrade their software, ever – so there are one billion out of date Android devices.
In July 2017, but in a post iPhone 8, iPhone X world – and many, many people were holding out for the Big Kahuna – I highly doubt that is the case today. Sadly, many iPhones support very old iOS versions, unlike Android, vendors, who barely support devices from a year ago. But let’s see… per this data on iPhone specific, we see
So basically everyone with an iPhone (or at least 91%) is at iOS 10 or later. Per Wikipedia…
With this release, Apple dropped support for devices with either an A5 or an A5X chip: the iPhone 4S, iPad 2, iPad (3rd generation), iPad Mini (1st generation) and iPod Touch (5th generation).
That does not narrow it down much, considering an ancient iPhone 5 could be on iOS 10. Let’s look at the 68% of people on iOS 11, instead.
The company did not make a version of the new iOS, dubbed iOS 11, for the iPhone 5, iPhone 5c, or fourth-generation iPad. Instead, those devices will be stuck with iOS 10
That drops the iPhone 5, so you’re looking at 68% of iPhone users with iPhone 5s or later. Interestingly that puts them near the top of the chart, relative to the nightmarish hellscape that is Qualcomm performance:
Thus, 68% of the iPhone market is by definition better than the “average” device according to this Google employee. And I highly highly doubt that of that 68%, it is tail-loaded with ancient 5s devices.
