GPS was incepted in 1982, at which point it was equal to UTC ; since then,
15 leap seconds were introduced to UTC, thus the 15-second offset and by
next July 1st, it will be 16 seconds.
The most common use of GPS time (hybrid?) is the Android system time, even
though Samsung Android phones use UTC discipline, possibly not thinking
like Google that GPS time is so prevalent....
