The latest AdDuplex report indicates that the April 2018 Update has made its way to over 84 percent of all PCs running Windows 10 out in the world.

“As April 2018 Update has reached 3/4 of all PCs running Windows 10 last month, it was clear that the growth can only slow down,” the latest AdDuplex report notes. “While that definitely happened, [this update] still gained more than 6 percent [usage share in the past month].”

According to AdDuplex, the April 2018 Update is now installed on 84.2 percent of all Windows 10 PCs out in the world. By comparison, the previous version, the Fall Creators Update, is on 10.3 percent of Windows 10 PCs. All previous versions are on less than 3 percent.

AdDuplex has also provided a new breakdown of the relative popularity of various Surface PCs. The Surface Pro 4 leads the pack, with 31.47 percent usage share within the family. Rounding out the top five are Surface Pro 3 (20 percent), Surface Pro (2017) (17.4 percent), Surface 3 (10.22 percent), and Surface Book (6 percent).

As you may recall, AdDuplex is the largest cross-promotion network for Windows apps, and the firm empowers developers and publishers to promote their apps for free by helping each other.
