    Android codenames

    Android is an operating system for smartphones and tablet computers that was developed by Google. Most of its versions are named after desserts, though neither the first two ones nor the most recent ones have such names. What names might they have?

    These dessert codenames are bestowed in alphabetical order, and using that criterion, I have thought of ones for versions that lack such codenames.

    The first two:
    • Apple fritter
    • Banana split


    The most recent ones are now simply Android 10, 11, and 12, but what desserts might they be?

    • Quesito
    • Rock Candy
    • Strudel, Sundae, Sherbet
    • Torte, Tutti Frutti, Turnover
    • Upside-Down Cake
    • (V)
    • Waffle
    • (X, Y, Z)

    WIkipedia has List of desserts but the only ones with names starting in V, X, Y, or Z are very unfamiliar ones. For X, one may have to make do with a name beginning in ex, like Extra <something>.
