Android 4.1, JellyBean is on its way to becoming the most popular build of the software, according to recent data. This version recently overtook Android 4.0, Ice Cream Sandwich's position as the second most used Android build as it is being used on 28 percent of all devices.
The most used version of Android is still Gingerbread, which is present on 38.4 percent of all devices. As updates continue to roll out, and new devices are released, the number of Gingerbread and Ice Cream Sandwich users will continue to shrink, and JellyBean should become the most used version in the coming months.
Google is also expected to unveil the new Android 4.3, JellyBean software at this year's Google I/O. The company has already been testing the software as it has been spotted in logs and websites.
