iOS 12 is already on 78% of the latest devices

The caution of users after the bad experiences with iOS 11 was evident with the arrival of iOS 12 officially. The new version of Apple’s operating system took some time to convince a certain public that it was still using previous versions on their devices, although it seems that its adoption is now growing.

Thanks to the statistics found on the App Store support page for developers we have learned that iOS 12 is already present on 78% of the devices launched in the last 4 years.

News related to a bad battery management and slowdown of some devices made iOS 11 almost a sign of identity since its official launch in September 2017. This was a small handicap for its successor iOS 12 that at its launch almost four months ago generated some doubts in users that have been increased in recent weeks due to connectivity problems that are affecting some users.

These data are officially provided by Apple on its App Store developer support website. We have learned that iOS 12 is already on 78% of devices launched in the last four years and on 75% of the total. It is worth noting that iOS 11 took longer to reach this figure and by this time only 65% of compatible devices were up to date.

The adoption rate of iOS 12 is more similar to that of iOS 10 and is that the operating system released in 2016 reached 76% on January 5, 2017, only 1% more than the total of iOS 12, which speaks very well of the current software version despite the connectivity failures already mentioned that could be solved by Apple in the coming days and that we insist that it does not affect all users.
