Interpreting App Download Results

As an analyst who needs to present to my boss how many downloads our app has and how many times our app has ever been installed (I know they are two separate things), which number is most accurate: the New Users section under acquisitions in Analytics or the Current/Total Installs in Developer Console?

I've been told to use GA as it is where you can also split that data against sources and revenue generated etc. - so i sure hope it is accurate Smiley Happy

Thank you for your reply David. I appreciate it. The issue I'm getting is that these two numbers are really off. The tracking code is correct. The SDK is linked to our iOS version too. Do you know why there is such a discrepancy?
