iOS 12 adoption rate unofficially passes iOS 11

Memoji iOS 12

iOS 12 is now unofficially on more devices than iOS 11. The milestone was reached just over two weeks after Apple released the software update to the public. 

According to Mixpanel Trends, as of today, Oct. 4, iOS 12 is found on 46.83 percent of iOS devices compared to iOS 11’s 46.21 percent. Another 6.96 percent of devices are on older iOS versions.

Apple has not yet updated iOS 12 stats on its App Store support page for developers.

Over roughly the same period in 2017, Mixpanel found the iOS 11 adoption rate stood at 45.31 percent versus 47.58 percent for iOS 10.

With iOS 12 packed with performance improvements, it’s not much of a surprise to see it being adopted a little bit quicker than its predecessor. That number could jump even more at the end of the month when many customers might be replacing their older iPhones with the new iPhone XR.

First announced in June, iOS 12 officially launched last month. Besides performance improvements, the update includes new features such as Screen Time, Shortcuts, and ARKit 2. It also includes personalized Animoji called Memoji. iOS 12.1 is now being tested by developers. The update consists of Group FaceTime, real-time camera Depth control, 70 new emoji, bug fixes, and more.
