Apple isn’t letting Google get away with leaving devices behind.
Last month was I/O 2017 for Google. Today starts WWDC 2017 for Apple. Both companies use their respective week-long events as a way to showcase new products and services that developers can take advantage of. But, while Google puts on a happy face and doesn’t care to name names, Apple calls out the competition for falling short.

Tim Cook started a segment on mobile by stating the current version of iOS is on more than 86% of the company’s phones. Well, the Apple CEO didn’t stop there. He decided to blast Google for not being able to come anywhere close with keeping Android devices on current software.
It was anything but polite.
Apple and Google’s latest version of their respective mobile operating systems came out around the same time; therefore, it’s a reasonable comparison. The main difference between the two is that Apple handles hardware and software. Google, on the other hand, can only lead with software. It’s up to hardware partners to get new version of Android on their devices.
If Google or any of its employees happen to respond, we’ll let you know.
