Apple has released iOS 13 adoption numbers on its developer website today. Reported by iOSAlerts, Apple says that iOS 13 is already running on more than half of all currently used iPhones. Compared to iOS 13, iOS 12 is being adopted at the same speed for all iPhones. But it is actually getting installed about 3% faster for iPhones introduced in the last four years.
Apple has released adoption numbers of iOS 13:
Apple classified the adoption numbers into two categories:
- devices introduced in the last four years
- all devices
55% of all iPhones introduced in the last four years already use iOS 13
As of October 15, 2019, 55% of all iPhones introduced in the last four years already use iOS 13. While 38% run iOS 12 and 7% are still running earlier operating systems.
Currently, 50% of all iPhones (no matter when they were released) now use iOS 13, while 41% run iOS 12 and 9% are still running an earlier OS.
41% of all iPads introduced in the last four years use iPadOS:
Apple has also released install numbers for the newly released Apple’s new iPad-specific operating system, iPadOS that was introduced this year at WWDC 2019. But today 41% of all iPads introduced in the last four years use iPadOS, whereas 51% still use iOS 12 and 8% still use earlier versions.
When you expand that to all iPads, regardless of release date, 33% of them are now using iPadOS. Round-about 51% are still using iOS 12, and 16% are still on earlier versions of the software.
These numbers were calculated by Apple through the App Store and reported on their developer website. iOS 13 software has already seen four updates to fix various errors and performance issues. iOS 13.2, which brings more updates and new emojis, is currently in beta testing with developers and those signed up through the Apple Beta Software Program.
