Google posts September’s Android platform distribution numbers, still no Pie

Sunday, September 30th, 2018

In what is becoming a tradition, Google has published new Android platform distribution numbers for September before the month is even over. In fact, Google bumped the numbers once in the middle of September, which is a bit peculiar. Whatever the motivation, it wasn't to show off the impact Android 9 Pie has made, as the latest version of Android is still apparently sitting below the 0.1% threshold for inclusion.

The numbers below were gathered from the Play Store over a 7-day period ending on September 28th.

August 2018 Android platform distribution numbers are out: Oreo up another 2.5%, no sign of Pie (yet)

Friday, August 31st, 2018

August isn't even properly over, but already Google has pushed the month's platform distribution numbers, detailing the precise statistics of Android versions used across devices. Last month's statistics were of particular interest after the two-month gap, resulting in some inflated numbers, but this month things are back to normal. As always, newer versions of Android are up, and older versions are (mostly) down. Interestingly, Pie has yet to rear its head, despite launching earlier this month.

LineageOS 13, based on Android Marshmallow, is now discontinued

Wednesday, February 14th, 2018

CyanogenMod 13, based on Android 6.0 Marshmallow, first arrived in November 2015. It was soon switched to Android 6.0.1, and continued to be the main branch of CyanogenMod until version 14.1 was released one year later. After the CyanogenMod community re-organized into LineageOS, the distribution was renamed to LineageOS 13.

At this point, most of the devices that had LineageOS 13 have either been updated to v14.1, or dropped entirely (usually due to inactive maintainers).

[I thought it was 2017?] BLU updates its Life One X to Android 6.0 Marshmallow

Sunday, July 2nd, 2017

In a surprising (and overlooked) turn of events, a couple weeks ago hardware-maker BLU updated its Life One X away from Lollipop. Unfortunately for users, although it is nice for a 2015 $99 entry-level device to see new software, it's only been taken as far as Android 6.0 Marshmallow. That's right, it's mid-2017, and BLU is only now updating a phone that came out in 2015 to an operating system from 2015. 

Don't get me wrong, BLU makes some decent phones.
