iOS 11 overtakes iOS 10, now installed on nearly half of devices

iOS 11 adoption rate has overtaken that of iOS 10 this week as the latest version of Apple’s mobile operating system is now installed on about 48% of iOS devices. In comparison, iOS 10 is still installed on about 45% of devices, according to analytics firm Mixpanel.

Older operating system versions, including iOS 9, iOS 8 and below, represent approximately 6% of the install base.

iOS 11 adoption rate is slightly slower than iOS 10’s. In the same time frame last year, iOS 10 was already installed on roughly 58% of devices, while iOS 9 was installed on only 31% of devices.

These numbers are obviously not official numbers shared directly by Apple, but they’ve proven to paint a relatively good picture of the state of iOS versions adoption in the past.
