Google revealed the first details of Android 14

As everyone knows, versions of Android have so far been named with different sweets. In addition, the names themselves follow alphabetical order. True, the dessert names were saved only for the internal names of the versions of the green robot, while consumers receive new versions of the operating system with serial numbers: Android 10, Android 11, Android 12, Android 13 and so on. What candy will Android 14 be looking for?

Google has revealed that the official codename for the fourteenth iteration of the green robot is Upside Down Cake. It will be available in 2023. This name can already be found in the Android Open Source Project (AOSP) code. Keep in mind that the Android 13 code is Tiramisu inside Google, and Android 12 is Snow Cone.

Google revealed the first details of Android 14

It’s still too early to talk about what Android 14 OS will be, but it’s clear that Google has already started working on it. Now the company is finishing the final preparations before the release of Android 13, which will take place in May at the Google I / O conference. Almost instantly, the company needs to release the first preview that device owners included in the beta test program can try. A stable building should show up in the fall or no earlier than August.

According to the latest data, the Android operating system continues to lose its market share. This is clear evidence that iPhones are becoming more desirable than Android smartphones. The latter’s share has been declining for five years

According to StockApps, Android currently has 69.74% of the smartphone market compared to 25.49% for iOS. That is, Android unconditionally dominates, but the nuance is that its share has dropped markedly over the past five years.

More precisely, in 2018 it accounted for 77.32% of the market against 19.4% for iOS. And that means Apple has done an excellent job; after having managed to win back a significant number of users from the main competitor. At the same time, in November last year, shortly after the launch of the iPhone 13 line; which proved to be very popular, the share of iOS reached 30%.

Generally, judging by the graph, the trend continues, so it is likely that the share of Android will continue to decline and iOS will continue to strengthen its position, although this process obviously can not last forever.
