Apple announced in December 2020 that 81% of iPhones introduced in the last four years already use iOS 14, which is the latest version of the company's mobile operating system. Now the analytics company Mixpanel says that the adoption of iOS 14 among iPhone and iPad users has already exceeded 90%.
According to recent data from Mixpanel, 90,45% of iOS users have already installed the latest version of the operating system. This is an impressive percentage, given that iOS 14 was released in September last year, less than seven months ago. Only 5,07% of users use iOS 13, while 4,48% of users still use iOS 12 or earlier.
Apple has not confirmed these numbers, but the results do not surprise us. According to the Apple Developer website, 80% of all iOS devices had already run iOS 14 by February 24, 2021. Once again, Apple stands out for being able to offer the latest system updates to the vast majority of its users, something that the competition is still struggling to do.
In September, the initial adoption of iOS 14 quickly surpassed the rates of iOS 13 during the same period that users were excited to receive the new features. IOS 14 introduces home screen widget, picture-in-picture function for iPhone users, application library, compact UI for calling and Siri, new features iMessage, built-in translator, Spatial Audio for AirPods and more.
Apple is currently working on iOS 14.5 - which is currently available to developers and public beta users. Although the release date is still uncertain, Apple says the update will be available to everyone sometime in the spring.
