IOS 14 is now reported to be operating on more than 90 percent of all iPhone models as a recent analysis by a statistical service company. The next version of the mobile app, iOS 15, expected in the coming months, has been widely announced at Apple WWDC’s annual event.
Back in December last year, 81 percent of all iPhone models released four years ago were already using iOS 14 and that number rose to 86 percent by the end of February. Apple launched iOS 14 publicly in September last year and the acquisition has worked well for the past seven months or so.
According to data shared by business analytics service company Mixpanel, iOS 14 is used by 90.44 percent of iPhone users. Having launched the public in September 2020, it is impressive to see such a discovery within seven months.
The data also shows that 5.07 percent of users are on iOS 13 and 4.49 percent of users are still on the old operating system. This percentage is estimated until April 5th.
IOS 14 has been accessible to many users and the latest data is not surprising when we look at the growth numbers shared by Apple in December last year. The Apple Developer website said at the time 81 percent of all iPhone models and 75 percent of all iPad models released four years ago were using iOS 14 and iPadOS respectively.
The website shows the acquisition of iOS 14 increased to 86 per cent and the acquisition of iPadOS increased to 84 per cent as measured on February 24 this year. So, while Apple has not shared the latest iOS adoption details, it would be nice to see 90 percent acquisition and an additional two months under the iOS 14 belt.
The latest beta firmware, iOS 14.5 is still being tested and at the time of its launch, it came across some misconceptions about a feature that users believe will allow them to choose the default music service for Siri applications, other than Apple Music.
However, Apple has made it clear that this was not because the new feature was designed for Siri’s intelligence, which means it could improve over time and change as we learn to better understand the listening habits of its users.
