iOS 12 is installed on 88% of iOS devices

Day after day we get closer to the public release of iOS 13 which is going to be next month, Apple has announced that iOS 12 adoption rate has reached 88% of active iPhones, iPads and iPod Touches. The data is based on the devices which accessed the App Store on August 6, 2019.

As the graph showing, 88% running iOS 12 while 7% still on iOS 11 and 5% on earlier iOS softwares.  Meanwhile, Apple’s stats also show that of all iOS devices introduced in the last four years, 90% of those are running iOS 12. 7% are running iOS 11 and only 3 percent are running earlier versions of iOS.

All this to say that while iOS 12 is obviously doing well for itself, it’s also outpacing iOS 11’s performance last year. Of course, even when iOS adoption isn’t at its fastest, it’s still doing quite well for itself.

Still, with iOS 13 on the horizon, it will be interesting to see how well that update does on the adoption front. Considering how many new features Apple is adding to the mix, including the oft-requested system-wide dark mode, will iOS 13 outpace iOS 12’s adoption over the course of a year? We’ll just have to wait and find out.
