Just four months after its debut, Apple’s iOS 9 mobile operating system is installed on 75% of active devices. Those numbers are as of January 11, and come from Apple’s App Store support page for developers.
iOS 9 adoption has climbed from 71 percent to 75 percent over the course of the past month, which is when Apple last updated iOS 9 adoption numbers. As iOS 9 adoption grows, the number of people using iOS 8 and earlier operating systems has declined. 19 percent of iOS users continue to use iOS 8, while 7 percent use an earlier version of iOS.
The adoption rate for Apple’s latest mobile operating system is outpacing that of iOS 8, which was installed on 68% of active devices four months in. Its adoption rate is the best since that of iOS 7, which was on 79% of devices four months after its release.
Apple released the first beta seed of iOS 9.3 to developers on Monday. The new version offers a Night Shift mode to cut down on the amount of blue light a user is exposed to before going to sleep. It also offers new 3D Touch Quick Actions for additional default apps, and a password feature for notes, as well as improvements to Apple news, Health, and CarPlay.
