Apple’s upcoming mobile operating system, iOS 11, is likely to be quickly adopted by current iPhone users from the day of its release, as device owners go through the process of updating their smartphones manually.
According to new data received by iPhoneinCanada from StatCounter Global Stats, the research company has added a breakdown of the various versions of iOS, Android and Mac operating systems used to access the internet to its Global Stats research tool.
The data shows that at the moment of writing, over 70% of Apple users are currently using their device with its latest operating system, iOS 10.3. On the other end of things, only 12.6% of Android users are using the most recent version.
According to the data, 71.4% of iOS internet usage worldwide is through 10.3 with 8.6% via the previous 10.2 version and 7.7% by 9.3. Check out the chart below for a visual representation of the data.
“We’ve added breakdowns of iOS, Android and Mac versions in response to requests from developers and analysts,” commented Aodhan Cullen, CEO, StatCounter.
On the Android side of things, only 12.6% of internet usage is via its latest 7.0 Nougat; 33.3% is through 6.0 Marshmallow OS, with 20.9% via 5.1 Lollipop. Here’s another visual representation of these numbers.
Finally, Mac users aren’t as effective in updating to the latest operating systems, as only 48.0% of users are currently updated to macOS Sierra, while 22.8% are using OS X El Capitan and 16% on OS X Yosemite. Here’s a final chart of Mac OS usage.
