Apple: 80% of users have upgraded to iOS 14.x
Apple’s system update speed is relatively fast, mainly due to the automatic update enabled by the iOS system by default. This makes the coverage of the new version of iOS extremely fast.
However, under normal circumstances, Apple does not frequently publish version data. In the past, most of all types of data were calculated and estimated by third-party companies based on the traffic.
Of course, the data officially released by Apple will be more accurate. For example, Apple recently updated its market share data for iOS 14 and iPadOS 14.
Statistics show that 81% of iPhones released in the past four years have been upgraded to the iOS 14 version, but about 17% are still using the iOS 13 version. The number of users using iOS 12 and previous versions is as low as 2%.
On the iPad side, 75% of the iPads released in the past four years have been upgraded to iPadOS 14, 22% of those using iPadOS 13, and 3% of those using an earlier version.
61% of all iPads upgraded iPadOS 14 and 21% used iPadOS 13. The proportion of iPads staying on earlier versions was about 18%.
Under normal circumstances, if the user does not manually turn off the automatic update function, then most of the equipment has already completed the automatic update without the user’s operation.
Of course, some devices that are too old do not support upgrading to iOS 14 or iPadOS 14, including iPhone 6 series, and previous versions have stopped receiving the update.
