iOS 10 has been, in Apple’s words, the biggest platform upgrade since it saw life with the arrival of the original iPhone. This new version comes loaded with new features that will no doubt make many feel like they have a completely rejuvenated iPhone or iPad, and it seems that users have flown to upgrade their computers to the new version, or at least that’s the way Mixpanel figures on the revealing adoption rate.
As you know, this index is shown as a key test to demonstrate the success of a new version of the operating system and to escape from the feared fragmentation that is so detrimental to developers. According to this first estimate, iOS 10 would have surpassed in adoption speed both iOS 9 and iOS 8 in the first 24 hours of its release.
Mixpanel explains that on its first day iOS 10 is already present in 14.5% of the device base , and if the figure does not tell you much, we will remind you that the previous version, which already had a successful start, stayed at 12% in the first 24 hours. It is worth remembering, on the other hand, the problems that this new version initially experienced and which were quickly solved by Apple.
These incidents undoubtedly slowed down a certain part of the base to update pending a more stable version or the problem being solved. However, as MacRumors points out, upgrades are expected to soar this weekend when people have more time to spend on it. On the other hand, this rate will also grow as the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus in the bookings are delivered to their buyers.
