Despite being known as the company with the products that don’t crash, Apple has actually come off second best in a test on crashing.

iOS 8 crashed in 2.2 per cent of tests, while Android Lollipop only went down two per cent of the time. Although the difference is minimal it is still an unexpected result, considering how Apple prides itself on its stability while Lollipop has been beset by problems since its launch.

The tests also showed that Apple’s latest OS crashed 0.3 per cent more often than iOS 7 did. This is in contrast to Android,which is moving in the right direction in terms of crashes. Both KitKat and Ice Cream Sandwich crashed 2.6 per cent of the time during tests, so Lollipop marks a real improvement in terms of reliability.
