Weekly Poll Results

selfh.st/ed's content this week focused on the mobile self-hosting world and our weekly poll was no exception – we asked readers to identify the OS of their primary mobile device. The results were not as skewed towards Android as we had suspected, with just shy of 36% of our readers leaning towards iOS.

We had a bit of a blunder shortly after releasing the poll where users of custom Android operating systems (LineageOS, GrapheneOS, etc.) were fragmenting the results with individual votes for their particular OS and eventually consolidated them to 'Custom Android OS'.
