Apple has released statistics showing that the current software update for the iPhone, iOS 16, has been adopted by 81% of iPhones produced in the last four years. The Cupertino-based company revealed the data on February 14, which was gathered from analyzing which devices made purchases in the App Store. The adoption rate of iOS 16 is higher than its predecessor, iOS 15, which is still being used by 15% of all iPhones.
When looking at all iPhones, 72% of them run on iOS 16, while 20% of them still have iOS 15. About 8% of iPhones are running on an older, undisclosed version. Meanwhile, 53% of all iPads released in the last four years are using iPadOS 16, while 39% are on iPadOS 15, and 8% are on an older software version.
The percentages for all iPads are similar, with 50% of them running on iPadOS 16 and 37% on iPadOS 15, while 13% are using an earlier version. However, the adoption rate of iPadOS 16 is lower compared to iPadOS 15, which could be due to the delayed release of its headlining feature, Stage Manager.
Stage Manager is a multitasking feature that lets users automatically organize apps and windows, making it easier to switch between tasks. The feature allows users to create overlapping windows of different sizes in a single view, and drag and drop windows from the side, or open apps from the Dock to create groups of apps for a seamless and more efficient workflow. Despite the lower adoption rate, Apple is committed to improving the feature and addressing the issues reported by some users.
Overall, the adoption rates for iOS 16 and iPadOS 16 suggest that users are generally receptive to software updates and are keeping their devices up to date with the latest features and security patches. With the release of these statistics, Apple aims to provide more transparency and insight into the usage of its software updates.
