Apple updated data on the release of iOS 11, which is now installed on 76% of compatible iOS devices worldwide.
This figure was updated on April 22, represents an increase of 11% compared to the last survey dated on January 18, and 25% compared to 6 November. With 76% of devices using iOS 11, the percentage of iOS 10 drops to 19%, while that of previous operating systems stops at 5%. Many of these devices are now dated and can no longer be updated to iOS 11.
iOS 11 installation rates have grown steadily, but adoption has been significantly slower than iOS 10. In February 2017, for example, iOS 10 was installed on almost 80% of active devices.
iOS 11 has been characterized by several bugs, some of which are as important as those related to HomeKit or the various Specter and Meltdown. However, the situation is improving with the latest releases. For example, the sharp surge between January and April can be explained by the arrival of iOS 11.3 in March, which has made several improvements and the ability to manage the battery / performance issue. Soon iOS 11.4 should be released with Messages on Cloud and AirPlay 2.
Despite a slower adoption rate, iOS 11 still represents a very good 76%, much higher percentage than the spread of the latest versions of Android.
For example, on April 13, only 0.5% of Android devices used the latest version of the operating system, and only 4.6% had Oreo installed. Most Android users continue to run Lollipop, Marshmallow and Nougat, which were released in 2014, 2015 and 2016 respectively.
