Apple says its iOS 12 is doing better than expected. They reported on Monday that 4 in 5 compatible iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch devices are now running iOS 12.
The figures you see below were published on the App Store support website. A breakdown of the numbers shows that the iOS 12 is now installed on 83 percent of these compatible devices in the last four years. Only about 12 percent of the iOS 12 compatible devices still run iOS 11 and a small 5 percent still continue to use earlier versions.
Compared to iOS 11, the iOS 12 has performed better. Back in 2017 when Apple reported the iOS 11 numbers, the adoption rate of iOS 11 is quite slow but yet impressive compared to Google’s competing operating system Android Oreo adoption rate of which only 0.2 percent devices are running on it. The slow adoption rate of iOS 11 can be a result of a number of factors, firstly because iOS 11 was generally seen as an incremental update for iPad with few update features for iPhone.
Users have been receiving iOS 12 at a quicker rate than they embraced iOS 11. As of April 2018, iOS 11 was still just installed on 76% of gadgets. The slower appropriation rate was likely because of the various bugs that tormented iOS 11 amid its year-long lifetime.
Despite the fact that iOS 12 just launched in September, Apple’s centre, and that of its engineers, will before long proceed onward to iOS 13, which should make its introduction at Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference 2019, which will probably be held in June.
Apple’s numbers were collected from App Store visits on Feb. 12, 2019.
