Unity revealed its Q3 Games by The Numbers report based on nearly 5B installs across 2.4B devices in Q4. Key highlights can be found below.
Play frequency: Android and iOS players have nearly the same average number of sessions per day (2.4 vs. 2.38)
Daily playtime: the average Android player spent 26.6 minutes on average playing Unity games every day; for iOS it was 19.8 minutes
New iPhone activations: through the first three weeks post launch, Unity saw 7 devices activate at a rate of nearly 3x that of 7+; when comparing data for both 7 models to the same 2015 period for iPhone 6s models, the volume of total iPhone 7 activations was 20% lower than iPhone 6s device activations
Device size: Phones saw 5x more gameplay sessions than phablets/tablets
