Apple’s iOS 13 adoption data hints at iPhone 11 sales


Apple tells us that four weeks since launch, iOS 13 is now in use by over half of all the devices sold in the last four years; that data may also hint at the strength of its iPhone sales.

Apple’s latest data shows rapid iOS adoption

Since iOS 13’s release on Sept. 19, Apple’s latest data shows the following:

All devices introduced in the last four years

  • 55% of all devices introduced in the last four years use iOS 13.
  • 38% of all devices introduced in the last four years use iOS 12.
  • 7% of all devices introduced in the last four years use an earlier version of iOS.

All devices used

  • 50% of all devices use iOS 13.
  • 41% of all devices use iOS 12.
  • 9% of all devices use an earlier iOS version.

Apple published this information earlier than it did in 2018, when it waited six weeks to provide initial iOS upgrade information.

At that time, it said iOS 12 (released Sept. 17, 2018) was installed on 63% of active devices introduced in the last four years and 60% of all devices. It also observed that 11% of all devices and 7% of recent devices were on iOS 10 or earlier at that time.
