Apple says iOS 11 is now installed on 65% of all compatible devices. The Cupertino firm shared the information on its App Store support page for developers.

iOS 11 Now Installed on 64% of Compatible Devices

The installation numbers are up six percentage points from the last report on December 5, when iOS 11 was installed on 59% of devices.

iOS 10 is still in use on 28% of devices, and 7% of devices still have earlier versions of iOS installed.

A 65% install rate is an impressive number, especially when compared to installation stats for the latest versions of the Android mobile operating system. A mere 0.7 % of Android devices are running Android Oreo, which is the latest version of Android. 26.3% of Android devices are running Nougat, which was released in 2016, and 28.6% of Android devices still have circa-2015 Marshmallow installed.

However, iOS 11 adoption rates lag behind iOS 10’s numbers in the same timeframe. In January 2017, iOS 10 was installed on 76% of iOS devices.
