If there is a field where Apple surprises, it is in the disclosure of its operating system. In this case, iOS 12, launched three and a half months ago.
By the time you purchase an Apple device you always have the guarantee of numerous upgrades. And Android, in comparison, guarantees you one or two major updates at the most.
Therefore, the latest statistics measured through the App Store present us a presence of the latest iOS 12 in 78% of equipment.
About 78% of Apple devices in the last 4 years are running iOS 12
While 78% of the devices are running iOS 12, only 17% run the previous version, iOS 11. Soon after we have a mere 5% of the device running earlier versions.
That way, Apple is having a higher success rate because iOS 12 is being adopted faster than iOS 11. Despite the controversy, we have to highlight the constant updates by the Cupertino company.
Apple’s ability to quickly spread the updates on its devices is certainly notorious in that regard.
Just to give an example, most Android users still have to settle for Marshmallow 6.0 and 7.0 Nougat instead of enjoying the 8.0 Oreo and maybe never from the Android 9 Pie.
However, it should be noted that Apple’s range of products is smaller. Having a more closed and controlled ecosystem, it is much easier to get regular updates and all device.
