iOS 12 adoption reaches 75%, beating both iOS 11 and iOS 10 to the feat

iOS 12 adoption reaches 75%, beating both iOS 11 and iOS 10 to the feat
Apple iPhone XR, XS Max, and XS running iOS 12

At this point in time iOS 12 really does look unstoppable. Less than a month after its launch the software could be found on 50% of iPhones and iPads. Then, just a couple of weeks later, this number had grown to 60%. And today, one month on from Apple’s October event, the software is installed on 75% of all iOS devices.

According to data gathered by Mixpanel, the operating system currently holds a market share of 75.05%. This is followed by last year’s iOS 11 with a market share of 11.46%, and all previous versions of the mobile operating system which, when combined, sit on just 5.49% of iPhones and iPads.

The adoption rate of the latest iOS version certainly seems impressive. But is perhaps even more impressive when compared to last year’s iOS 11, which failed to capture the same interested. By this time last year, iOS 11 was just about to hit a 59% adoption rate. By mid-January this had grown to 65% but, it wasn’t until seven months after its release, in April, that it could be found on three quarters of all iOS devices, a feat iOS 12 has achieved in just over two months.

In terms of how iOS 12 compares to the adoption of older versions, the operating system is way ahead of even 2016’s iOS 10 – it reached at 76% adoption rate in January 2017 – and is actually track to become the most popular iOS version in recent history.

Nice try. Android Pie is 2 yrs ahead in features vs. ios. That's why android update is not a priority. Oh security? Secrecy of code doesn't equate to security. Geeks can jailbreak iphone eve if the code is secret meanwhile it's impossible to modify android firware if the oem decided to lock the bootloader. It's the oem's choice. Even a 16 yr old boy can crack apple and if you believe that a 90 gb of data contains nothing then you're a dumb

"It only support video and audio. Lmao." And it does that great, how we get zero latency audio for Android? It's been available for iPhone since first iPhone and still Google doesn't know how to do that and thats why all musical gadgets and softwares are available for iOS

iPhones can use formats that are not compressed. So this iOS devices can't play superior audio and video formats natively. The vast majority of device users give zero care about latency on audio Only pros care about such and those that do, buy real expensive hatdware for that in the majority of cases. Again toubcontinue ro bring up things that dont matter. But things that do matter like 326ppi display, for $800 where you can't even view 1080p content which is the standard of TV and video formats as a minimum, and the fact Apple charges and arm and a leg and cuts and cuts and cuts as much from the package as posaible; show you are simply nothing more than troll-bate. Bring up stuff that matter bruh, that the majority use every dsy. Explain why an iPhone with less capability, can't even last a full work day for most on a single charge. While most Samaung users phones last 1.5 days?????

And yet, all the iPhone with iOS 12 including the latest models, still doubles then a 5 year old Android devices, especially one from Samsung. Numbers dont matter bruh, until they matter. I dont need Pie. My Note for a lesser price has everything you dont. I still have an GOS, along with iris scanners in ng and face recognition, a headphone Jack, much larger battery, more ram, more storage even without sdcard, bigger display, higher resolution that is adjustable, better cameras, settings Re inside the appa, better headphones, better cables, better features and better price. You keep loving your fix-dates. Because that is what most IoS updates are. Fixing things that keep breaking Andeoid phones dont break as much as iPhones. That is a proven fact Actually, it is actually factual that oems know about issues and leave them to fix later to meet release goals. APPLE knowing they can fix stuff later, releases every iOS with a slu of issues. Andeoid does not. Notice most Andeoid version only have 1 or 2, fixes per release. While iOS has more than 10 updates on several versions. Like iOS 9, which had over 15 updates and fixes applied. No Android version jn history has ever had. Only Windows has more updates that iOS.

Android Pie is nowhere close to 1.1. Last time we got stats earlier this month it was 0.1 or something, last version which shows it's share is gingerbread and it has 0.2% share so Pie has to be less.

Meanwhile even the latest iPhones can't do what most Android do, even after 50 updates. Update adoption means nothing if you arent getting nothing. How many new features dies iOS 12 bring? Mostly nothing. Can the XS with iOS 12 do what a Galaxy Sy can do? The XR can even match the display on the S5. And the S5bhas the same IP certification. Haha. All you fools care about is numbers onmt when they favor you. Except the numbers that favor you, dont matter, while the numbers that favor us have more substance.

As buggy as iOS 11 was, I'm surprised it isn't higher by now.

i don't know what bugs you have had, but i haven't noticed any bugs with iOS 11 or 12.

ios is like a domino. Encounter's a simple bug (e.g. calendar date, some text character, or a simple link) then kaboom! the whole phone is paperweight.

Be careful replying to him. If you make him look stupid (which is easy to do), he’ll report you for hurting his feelings. Or just make your comments disappear.

Of course you haven't. Because I seriously doubt you even own an iPhone. Or any real phone. How about all the bugs an issues found online. Just because you didn't have any, doesn't mean they dont exiat. Typical Apple fanboy mentality. There is no cancer, because I dont have it. You guys arent even funny anymore! You guys are solely pathetic.

Oh, come on! iOS 11 was the worst iteration in the history of iOS. That's coming from someone who used both iOS and Android. Stop eating all the apples.

Meanwhile iOS 12 is still years behind most versions of Android in terms of features.

i get that you android boys like to have most features, As iOS users we care that the features we need and use works great and effortlessly. If amount of features would be important Nokia would still lead the market with their symbian phones, it had so many features which only fraction ever used or needed. don't be butthurt, just admit that you would want to have newest android.

"Android Pie is 2 yrs ahead in features vs. ios. That's why android update is not a priority." LOL You android people are really funny, you try to justify horrible updating with these excuses that you don't want newest android because it's so much better than iOS, but if you could get it today you would install it right away, don't try to deny it. Who wouldn't want new features? it makes your product better than when you bought it, which gives it more value. Stop being so butthurt and accept that android is so big fragmented mess and you can only dream about having new features.

Hey Midan, if Android users want a phone with very good hardware and less features, they actually have that as an option. And they also pay less for it. You guys pay more to get less features. If I wanted an Android phone that is nothing like Samsung phones, i can get a Oneaplus for $500. It will do pretty much everything an iPhone does for 1/2 the price and no Samaung features I may not want. You do get that option. Right now Apple is offering 3 phones that basically offer the same capabilities at a high, higher or highest price. That's where your thinking is flawed, is you say you're ok with less features, but you're paying what we pay for more features. And it's not about more features Midan. Its BETTER features. Better features like bigger batteries, headphone Jack. FPS, premium headphones, better cameras with better features. Remember we had adjusting the photo Bokeh after taking the shot first. We also had burst photo first too, where holding the shutters makes it keep taking pics. Yet the galaxy takes over 20 photos in the time it takes an iPhone to take only 10. The quality of video is better on Android. We take better low light photos at the same price. Bettwr display, better speakers and more. The Note 9 for $1000 is a better phone in the ways that matter most, no matter how many they sell. I dont care about numbers that dont matter, I'm not a stockholder nor unlike most of you, don't need to pretend to be one

whatev, in android you can create android apps without pc. You can code games apps even browser games inside android. Not interested with that feature? Android is for smart people btw I can't blame you. lmao.
