Apple launched its latest operating system – iOS 10 – amid much excitement in 2016 and now, a new survey reveals that a majority of Apple users have installed the update on their compatible iPhone, iPad or iPod.
It’s been nearly four months since iOS 10 was made available to Apple users and the official statistic from Apple reveals that this version of the operating system is now running on 76 percent of iDevices, which are eligible for the update.
Only 18 percent users have chosen to stay put on iOS 9 as of now and a paltry 6 percent devices are still using older versions of iOS.
The news of iOS 10’s massive adoption comes straight from the horse’s mouth i.e. Apple. The company shared the statistic on its website on a pie chart. Apple disclaimed that the data was “as measured by the App Store on January 4, 2017.”
Released in October 2016, iOS 10 initially encountered some bugs and errors in the beta stages, but when the updated version was pushed out, users did not have much to complain about
Interestingly, iOS 10’s adoption has edged past that for iOS 9 by a small margin. In January 2016, we reported that iOS 9 75 percent of Apple devices were running on iOS 9.
