Updated data from analytics firm Mixpanel shows that iOS 16 is being embraced by iPhone users more quickly than iOS 15 was. Nine days after its release, an estimated 23.26 percent of iPhones have iOS 16 installed.
Just 19.3% of smartphones had iOS 15 installed 10 days after its launch in 2021, as iPhone owners at the time appeared less inclined to upgrade due to certain early problems. Because of the cosmetic modifications that iOS 16 makes, it might also be more enticing.
Along with Lock Screen widgets, the Lock Screen experience has been completely overhauled to allow for far more personalization than before. Additionally, iOS 16 has capabilities like iMessage editing and undo send that may persuade users to upgrade.
Apple currently offers security patches that allow iPhone owners to stay on iOS 15 if they so choose; upgrading to iOS 16 is not yet necessary
When iOS 15 was released last year, Apple did the same thing, enabling users to continue using iOS 14 for nearly four months following the update’s release. When the impending iOS 16.1 update launches in October, we might notice a noticeable increase in the adoption of iOS 16. It will include important features like Live Activities for the Lock Screen and modifications to the battery indication in the status bar.
iOS 15 is currently predicted to be installed on 66.96 percent of devices, with iOS 16 adoption increasing hourly, while 9.77 percent of devices are still on an older version of iOS. The information provided by Mixpanel is based on visits to websites and applications that make use of its analytics SDK, thus the figures are approximate and subject to change. The number of iOS 16-running devices has not yet been disclosed by Apple, although Mixpanel’s data has often been very accurate.
