Kantar has released its smartphone OS data for the first quarter of 2021, which follows last year’s iPhone 12 series launch, and shows it has delivered YoY growth for iOS across EU5 (+3.6% pts), USA (+4.9% pts.) and Australia (+3.5% pts.). Coupled with Huawei continuing to haemorrhage sales in all reported markets, Android struggles to keep up despite some strong sales share growth among individual brands.
Although it has just been over three weeks since the last updates for the iPhone, iPad and Apple Watch, and in the last update, Apple TV's tvOS too, another update is out to defeat this vulnerability which "may have been actively exploited."
The latest data from Kantar "shows 25% of iPhone 12 models were bought for ‘5G capability’ across major Markets and significantly over-indexed vs. the average smartphone bought", with the iPhone 11 still very popular and Samsung's sales share also up by 2.3%.
Hisense’s smart TV operating system interface is called VIDAA, and in its 2021 ULED TV models it is upgraded to VIDAA U5, dubbed as the fastest version yet, adding Google Assistant to the existing Amazon Alexa support, with select models to offer “hands-free” voice control, with new apps and streaming content coming including Kayo for sports lovers - and separately, Hisense TVs powered by Android are also coming.

Starting in Q4 2019, Nokia smartphone fans can get their hands on the Android 10 software upgrade and start enjoying the very latest Android experiences.
Despite well-publicised global challenges, Huawei sold 10 million of its P30 series smartphones within 85 days after launch (and 62 days faster than the P20 series) and sold 90 million more devices before May 2019.
Huawei's EMUI 9.1 already exists on the P30 and P30 Pro, but now it will come with a range of great benefits and features from mid-July to the Mate 10, 20, 10 Pro and 20 Pro, the Nova 3i and 3e, and the P30 lite from August.
If you have a spare iPhone, iPad, Mac or Apple TV, and are keen to not only test out Apple's new iOS 13, iPadOS, MacOS Catalina and tvOS 13 betas, then go for it, but wait before you install on your primary devices.
