Launched on September 27, the iOS 12 which has already received an update for bug fixes is already installed on 50% of all compatible devices and still in use. This is the first time after the release of the twelfth version of iOS that Apple releases the official information.
As it always does, Apple relies on the iPhones, iPads and iPods touch that are running the latest version of its mobile operating system considering App Store hits. With iOS 12 taking the lead, the iOS 11, in turn, dropped to 39%, while older versions of Ma's mobile operating system represent 11%.
Apple also decided to release a new chart considering only the handsets released in the last four years (ie from September 2014 to c) apparently this is the new metric used by the company. As a result, the use of iOS 12 jumps to 53%, that of iOS 11 goes to 40%, while older versions only represent 7%.
With this performance, iOS 12 outperformed the adoption rate of iOS 11 in the same period last year. By early October 2017, iOS 11 had been installed on approximately 38.5% of devices. Only in November did the old system reach 50%, based on official Apple numbers. Thus, the adoption rate of iOS 12 is more similar to that of iOS 10, which also reached 50% a few weeks after its release.
Among the readers of , the number obviously increases: around here, iOS 12 is at 75% (including who is already running the beta version of iOS 12.1), iOS 11 is at 18% and previous versions only 7%. 😉
