Fragmentation may be a setback for professional software developers, most of who need to create different editions of an app to keep up with technological advancements and competition from other programmers. Device fragmentation can also be a hindrance for IT experts, most of who need to manage and safeguard their OS’s from intrusion by hackers. Different software editions have unique capacities, therefore making it hard to stem illegal updates from unknown sources. Nevertheless, this problem is more common in Android devices and not those that run on iOS.
