Whereas Apple rolls out i OS updates instantaneously across much of its product line — the platform absolutely was designed with that in mind — Google’s lack of direct control over the firmware running on most of the world's billion or so Android devices means it’s impossible for it to do the same.Enjoy a refined experience that anticipates your needs while keeping everything simple.With Marshmallow 6.0, you get timely and relevant information with just a tap, plus battery-smart features and new app permissions that give you even more control.Google Now™ puts all the information you need—flight information, traffic, weather, package deliveries, and more—at your fingertips.And, with Motorola's Touchless Control, you don't even have to touch your phone for information, you can just ask.In an article published in late 2012 we discussed exactly why this is the case.
The “open” nature of Android, the vast differences in hardware across the entire ecosystem, not to mention the large number of moving parts required to get most updates pushed to users, all contribute to the lengthy delays we’ve come to know and hate.
As we said almost 18 months ago, it’s a weakness that’s built into Android’s DNA, and not something that can be easily overcome.
Yet over the past year we’ve seen new endeavors by Google and some leading Android manufacturers to tackle this seemingly impossible problem.
There have been efforts on multiple fronts: Firstly, the introduction of new features and APIs through Google Play Services, and the spinning of major Google apps out into the Play Store, allowing them to be updated independently from the OS.
Google has put future Android code into the hands of OEMs earlier than before, through the “Google Play edition” program.
There’s also evidence that manufacturers are seeing the competitive value in being first (or at least quick) with new OS versions.
