One week ago, Apple officially launched iOS 11 to the public. The newest software upgrade for the mobile operating system saw initially slow adoption, but it looks like things are starting to move in the other direction.
Thanks to data compiled by analytics company Mixpanel, it looks like iOS 11 has now been installed on upwards of 25 percent of devices out there in the wild. According to the data, iOS 11 is now sitting at 25.41% adoption. That means, after the first 24 hour benchmark, just over 15 percent of iOS users out there have upgraded to iOS 11.
Of course, as iOS 11 expands across iOS devices, the other versions begin to shrink in scope. iOS 10 is now sitting at 67.81 percent, and older versions of Apple’s mobile operating system are now resting at almost 7%.
It is worth noting that while people are starting to upgrade their iOS devices, the adoption rate when compared to the launch of iOS 10 last year is noticeably slower. Looking at the one week milestone for iOS 10, Apple was already seeing over 30 percent adoption.
Today, Apple officially launched iOS 11.0.1, which is designed to squash recently discovered bugs since the public launch of iOS 11, as well as improve the overall performance. While iOS 11 didn’t suffer from any major download/install obstacles, there have been reports that performance wasn’t as high as some might expect. This could be why some people are waiting to upgrade, which means the release of iOS 11.0.1 could spur their upgrade plans.
If you are running a supported iOS device, have you upgraded to iOS 11 yet? If so, what do you think of the new software? IF not, what are you waiting for?
