Apple’s iOS 13 Already Powering 50% of All iPhones

Apple released iOS 13 on September 19, followed shortly by iPadOS on September 30. And although it’s only been around 26 days since the launch, Apple’s latest version of iOS is already powering a good majority of iPhones.

The company published iOS 13 and iPadOS usage stats via the App Store support page, which is what Apple uses to track iOS usage, reports The Verge.

The new stats aren’t anything too surprising, considering the fact that iOS updates often reach most iPhone users very quickly. iOS 12, for example, just took 23 days to hit 50%. iOS 13, on the other hand, is powering 55% of all iPhones introduced in the last four years, while 50% of all iPhones are running iOS 13.

As for iPadOS, 41% of iPads introduced in the last four years are running the latest version of iPadOS/iOS 13, while 33% of all iPads now use iPadOS.

And although iOS 13’s growth isn’t as good as that of iOS 12, when you compare it to other operating system updates–especially Android–the story is obviously a whole lot different.
