iOS 12 Adoption Officially Hits 70%, Compared to 59% for iOS 11 Last Year

Apple announced on Tuesday that the iOS 12 adoption rate has hit 70% on all compatible iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch devices. The figures were shared by the Cupertino firm on its App Store support page.

iOS 12 Adoption Officially Hits 70%, Compared to 59% for iOS 11 Last Year

The last time Apple shared iOS 12 adoption figures was October 29, when iOS 12 was installed on 60% of eligible iOS devices. Apple also noted the 72% of the devices sold in the last four years are running iOS 12.

iOS 12 is being adopted at a faster rate than iOS 11 was at this time last year. As of December 4, 2017, iOS 11 was on 59% of compatible devices. iOS 11 stumbled a bit coming out of the gate, as it was afflicted with a large number of bugs over its lifespan, so the higher iOS 12 adoption numbers shouldn’t come as a surprise.

Apple notes 21% of all iOS devices are still running iOS 11, while 9% are running an older version of iOS.

Apple’s numbers are relatively close to those announced by Mixpanel last week, which showed 75% of all iOS 12 devices were running iOS 12. While APple has a direct pipeline to make its measurements, Mixpanel uses data collected from analytics frameworks inside mobile apps and websites, accounting for the difference in measurements.
