The finished version of iOS 11 comes out tomorrow, Sept. 19. iPhone users are likely to quickly adopt the operating system update based on current adoption analysis, according to a new set of StatCounter Global Stats.
StatCounter — which provide companies, agencies, bloggers, self-employed and charities with the data to measure visitor activity on their website, blog or forum — has added a breakdown of the various versions of iOS, Android and Mac operating systems used to access the internet to its Global Stats research tool.
It found that over 70% of Apple’s iPhone Internet usage is currently through its last operating system (iOS 10.3), while just 12.6% of Google’s Android usage is via its most recent version.
The new data finds that 71.4% of iOS Internet usage worldwide is through 10.3 with 8.6% via the previous 10.2 version and 7.7% by 9.3. In the Android space, just 12.6% of internet usage is via its latest 7.0 Nougat; 33.3% is through 6.0 Marshmallow OS, with 20.9% via 5.1 Lollipop.
