Apple’s iOS 11 is now installed on 52 percent of iPhones and iPads

“As of November 6, 2017, iOS 11 is now installed on 52 percent of iPhones and iPads currently in use,” Romain Dillet reports for TechCrunch. “38 percent of devices still run iOS 10, and only 10 percent of people are using an earlier version of iOS.”

“Last year, Apple reported roughly the same numbers on October 11 with 54 percent of users running iOS 10,” Dillet reports. “The iPhone X could be part of the reason why it took longer to reach the same number.”

“52 percent of market share in just a couple of months is quite impressive,” Dillet reports. “Most Android users are still using Android 6.0 Marshmallow. Google released this version more than two years ago.”

  1. “Most Android users are still using Android 6.0 Marshmallow. Google released this version more than two years ago.”

    While accurate, the statement is a bit misleading. Looking at the table, a more accurate statement would be:

    Most Android users are still using an OS that is over three years old.

    Between Jelly Bean, Kit Kat and Lollypop, (plus the two dinosaurs, Gingerbread and ICS), the combined share is exactly 50% (!!).

    In other words, half of ALL Android phones are running an OS that’s more than 3 years old.

    Three years ago, we had iOS 8. It didn’t even have multi-tasking, 3D touch, Metal API, Night Shift, News App and many other features all iOS owners now take for granted.
