Definition

The Platform/ OS report displays all visits to your site filtered by Platform and further filtered within Platform by Operating System (OS).
The OS table identifies and specifies individual devices, for example ipad, iphone, blackberry, Windows phone, etc.
Visually, the report is made up of a list of all Platforms from which visits were identified, in order of popularity.
The information is displayed in both a pie chart graph and a table.
Please note that there are two tables for this report; the first table is grouped by Operating System, and the second by OS - Operating System, so that you can drill-down within the Platform and identify devices, see screenshot below for details.
