iOS 16 has been installed on nearly 12% of iPhones during its first two days of availability, says data shared by analytics company Mixpanel. Apple released the iOS 16 update to the public on Monday morning.
The install rate has outpaced the adoption rate of iOS 15 during its first two days of availability. iOS 15 was installed on just 8.5% of devices at the two-day mark,
iOS 16 offers a number of attractive new features, likely spurring the increase in adoption. New features include a customizable lock screen, which includes various widget options, multiple new Messages features, and much more.
As it did last year, Apple is temporarily providing iOS updates to users that don’t wish to upgrade to iOS 16 at this time. Apple recently released iOS 15.7, allowing users to stick with iOS 15, at least for the near future. Last year, Apple removed the iOS 14 update option four months after releasing iOS 15.
Mixpanel’s numbers are based on tracking visits to apps and websites that use its mobile analytics SDK, so the numbers are not official. Apple has currently not released early iOS 16 adoption numbers.
