During Apple's quarterly conference call for the first fiscal quarter of 2014, CFO Peter Oppenheimer revealed the company's new iOS 7 has now been installed on 80 percent of compatible iOS devices like iPhones and iPads.

With the 80 percent number, Apple's most recent mobile operating system continues to dominate rival Android, the latest version of which — 4.4 "KitKat" — is only running on roughly 1.5 percent of compatible devices.

In December, iOS 7 was reported to be installed on 78 percent of devices. Currently, devices able to update to iOS 7 include iPhone 5s, 5c, 5 4S and 4, and all iPads down to the iPad 2 and original iPad mini.

By comparison, the most-used Android version is the last-generation 4.3 "Jelly Bean," which is on roughly 60 percent of devices.
