Apple’s iOS 10 now installed on 76% of iOS devices

“Nearly four months after iOS 10 was released to the public, the operating system is installed on 76 percent of active iOS devices, according to new numbers posted on Apple’s App Store support page for developers,” Juli Clover reports for MacRumors.

“iOS installation rates have grown significantly over the holiday period, jumping up 13 percentage points between the end of November and the beginning of January,” Clover reports. “On November 27, 2016, iOS 10 was installed on 63 percent of devices.”

Clover reports, “18 percent of devices continue to run iOS 9, and six percent of devices are running iOS 8 or earlier.”

Apple’s iOS boasts adoption rates about which Alphoogle’s Fragmandroid can only dream!


  1. Wait for the naysayers …. what happened to the other 24%?

    Compare this stellar conversion rate across 100’s of millions of devices to the nonsense going on with fragmentoid devices, LOL

    1. Yippee! Another meaningless statistic.

      Perhaps those “naysayers” have iOS devices that were designed for earlier versions of iOS and cannot benefit from iOS10.

      Perhaps their hardware cannot run iOS10 at all.

      Perhaps there’s nothing worthwhile in iOS10 to prompt people to update.

      Perhaps people have been burned by jumping into the latest iOS and not being able to revert back when it causes them problems.

      Or perhaps iOS10 isn’t a particularly compelling update and the only devices that made the jump are the ones of lazy sheep who accept whatever Apple pushes with their incessant annoying reminders.

      Apple could spend a bit more time making iOS easier and more powerful to use instead of chasing Facebook and Snapchat features with every release. Look, now with more emoji! Isn’t that special.

  2. Funny 75% of my iOS devices can not run iOS 10.
    I have two 3rd gen iPads, one one phone 4S and an iPhone 5S.

    I’ve kept the iPhone 5S at iOS 9 to remain compatible with the older device for as long as possible.
    I hope Apple doesn’t purposely break FaceTime again with an expired certificate or some other nonsense again.

    BTW, I don’t think buying new devices is always the answer when the old ones are working perfectly fine. I buy stuff when I need it vs. simply want it.
