iOS 9 has been out for two days, and it’s already running on more than 20 percent of compatible devices, according to the latest data. In comparison, Google’s latest Android release, version 5.1 Lollipop, is running on just 5.1 percent of devices ten months after it made its public debut.

Join us in this week’s Friday Night Fight between Cult of Android and Cult of Mac as we battle it out over this very topic!
