While the latest release of Android, version 9 Pie, is still a no-show when it comes to official statistics, Apple has today confirmed that its latest iOS release has reached a 50% adoption rate.
Regarding the current install rate of previous iOS versions, release number eleven has dropped from a peak of 85% in the first week of September to just 39% as of October 10. Similarly, the “others” category, which includes all versions previous versions sits at 11%. This represents a drop in presence of 4% over September's figures.
Unlike recent versions of the operating system, iOS 12 concentrates primarily on performance improvements for all devices dating back to 2013’s iPhone 5s. It is because of this that iPhone and iPad users are understood to be favoring the update over previous releases.
