One Week After Launch, Apple iOS 11 Adoption Hits 26 Percent
According to data collected by analytics company Mixpanel, Apple iOS 11 is installed on 26.56 percent of iOS devices, in one week after release. This is lower than last years iOS 10, as it managed to reach 34 percent in under a week.
Over the course of the last week, iOS 11 adoption has expanded by just 15 percent, as 10 percent of people already had the update installed 24 hours after launch. With iOS 11 adoptions growing, iOS 10 is now installed on 67.32 percent of devices, while 6.11 percent of devices continue to run an earlier version of iOS.
Fortunately, the iOS 11 adoption is not hampered by installation issues like it was for iOS 10, but there have been some reports of app slowdowns and performance drops, which could potentially be holding people back from installing until a later date.
While the iOS 11 adoption is slow, it still is better than the adoption rate of new Android versions. The majority of Android devices continue to run Android Marshmallow and Lollipop, software that is now two to three years old.
It will be interesting to see if the adoption of Apple’s iOS 11 increases significantly over the next few weeks as Apple will be releasing updates to iOS 11 to iron out bugs and adds missing features.
Before wrapping up, it is worth highlighting that these are unofficial numbers compiled by third-party business analytics service Mixpanel, with Apple’s definitive scores often differing greatly.
