iOS 11 received 52 percent hits, lagging behind previous versions
iOS 11, Apple’s latest mobile operating system, lags behind its predecessors and is now only 52 percent installed on iOS devices.
The adoption of iOS 11 has been slower than last year’s adoption of iOS 10 but the number of devices with installed updates has steadily increased since the new update was released, Macromers reported late Tuesday.
According to new figures shared on the App Store support page for Apple developers, 38 percent of users are still running iOS 10 on their devices, while another 10 percent are still on earlier versions of iOS. Data previously released by Mixpanel Trends reveals that the adoption of iOS 11 is slower than the adoption rate of iOS 10. The report compares the real-time installation data of iOS 11, iOS 10 and earlier versions.
The Cupertino-based giant has so far released several updates for iOS 11, including iOS 11.1. With iOS 11.1, the company has introduced new emojis, brought back the 3D Touch App Switcher, and included some important security solutions. Meanwhile, iOS 11 has been reported to drain battery life twice as fast as iOS 10. It brings support for Apple’s ARKit, advanced multitasking and new gestures.
The iOS 11.2 update is currently being tested in the beta program and will be Apple’s first major update to bring a new feature called “Pay Cache”. The feature was announced earlier this year and allows users to send and receive cash within the messaging app on iPhones.
