No matter which mobile operating system you use it's bound to crash every once and a while, but as smartphones and their software continue to improve crashes have become less frequent. A new study from performance monitoring company Crittercism breaks down how often different version of Android and iOS crash, revealing that Google's OS is actually a lot more stable than Apple's.
Android Gingerbread is apparently the most likely version of the OS to crash at 1.7 percent, while more recent versions of the software including Ice Cream Sandwich, Jelly Bean and KitKat all come in at a crash rate of just 0.7 percent. By comparison, iOS 7.1, Apple's most recent mobile update, has a crash rate of 1.6 percent. Earlier versions are significantly higher, according to Crittercism, which puts iOS 7 at 2.1 percent and iOS 6 at 2.5 percent. The study also claims the iPhone 5 is Apple's most stable smartphone, while Samsung devices are less likely to crash than other Android phones.
Based on Crittercism's report, the latest version of iOS 7 is just barely more stable than an Android iteration that hit the market over three years ago. That may sound crazy, but this study comes from the company's one billion monthly active users. There are other factors to consider when picking between Android and iOS, of course, but if you're looking for a phone that won't crash Google's platform may be the better choice.
