Last month's Android platform distribution numbers showed a continuing steady rise of Android 4.4 in handsets worldwide, but this month's numbers mark a major jump - KitKat is up to 13.6% of all devices, from a mere 8.5% a month ago today. Updates to handsets likely explain some of the rise, though consumers replacing aging devices with updated phone like the HTC One M8 and Galaxy S5 are probably more likely candidates for such a rapid and significant rise in adoption.
Froyo and Gingerbread continue their steady decline along with Ice Cream Sandwich, and Honeycomb finally reached the <0.1% mark and has been removed from the chart. Android 4.1 saw a decline of over 4%, though 4.2 and 4.3 both climbed, the latter by 1.8%. Check out the details at the link below.
