StatCounter — which provide companies, agencies, bloggers, self-employed and charities with the data to measure visitor activity on their website, blog or forum — has added a breakdown of the various versions of iOS, Android and Mac operating systems used to access the internet to its Global Stats research tool.

It found that over 70% of Apple’s iPhone Internet usage is currently through its last operating system (iOS 10.3), while just 12.6% of Google’s Android usage is via its most recent version.
