Apple took a lot of potshots at Android and Google today. This one is probably the most damaging.

Scott Forstall, the head of Apple’s mobile software flashed the graphic below on the screen and said, “More than 80% of our customers are running the latest version of iOS, iOS 5. Now if you compare that to the competition, they released a dairy product, 4.0, about the same time that we released iOS 5. And about 7% of Android customers are running the latest version.”

Yes, this is an Apple talking point, but it’s important. Over 80% of Apple’s users have the best possible OS Apple can make. Only 7% have the best possible OS Google can make.
