iOS 10 is already installed on one-third of compatible devices
Apple's new iOS 10 has scarcely been around for a week, having been formally introduced back at this year's WWDC and gone through the usual rigmarole of pre-release betas. Despite its fledgling status and a fair dose of teething issues for T-Mo users, the latest firmware has already managed to reach a large chunk of its intended user base. Of the total count of iOS 10-ready iPhone, iPad and iPod touch devices out in the wild, one-third are now running it. 

Cupertino always does pretty well when it comes to installs of new iOS iterations. This is largely because, unlike with Android, carriers and OEM partners do not get to intervene during the roll-out. Since Apple designs its own hardware and uses a closed-source platform, updates reach users in a timely manner, as has once again been demonstrated with iOS 10. 

Earlier this month, Apple officially disclosed that almost 9 out of every 10 iOS 9-ready devices were running the then-latest version. These latest numbers are not concrete, but the estimates of analytics firm Mixpanel. With a supposed 33.64 per cent rate of adoption in just under a week, iDevice owners are quickly taking to the new iOS 10, though it seems iOS 9's record-breaking 66 per cent install rate after two weeks may not be emulated this time around. 

iOS 10 includes a slew of new features which you can check out in more depth here. Additionally, if you'd like to take a peek at some of the less obvious new quirks, we've got a round-up of iOS 10's more obscure features.
