“Adoption of Apple’s OS X El Capitan slowed significantly in November, with the upgrade pace falling behind that of its predecessor at the same point in the 2014 edition’s post-launch timeline,” Gregg Keizer reports for Computerworld.
“El Capitan, also identified as OS X 10.11, was released on the last day of September: 61 days later it had been installed on 38% of all Macs, according to analytics firm Net Applications,” Keizer reports. “That was an increase of 11 percentage points from the month before, when the upgrade set an adoption record for a Mac operating system.”
“A sizable number of Macs continued to run outdated editions of OS X last month, even though many of them were eligible for the El Capitan upgrade,” Keizer reports. “By Net Applications’ data, about 14%, representing one in seven Macs, was powered by a version that Apple no longer supports with security updates. ”
