Apple revealed today via the App Store dashboard for developers that iOS 12, its latest and greatest mobile operating system, is now powering 72 percent of devices sold in the last four years. Just a month ago, the company reported that iOS 12 powered 63% of iPhones, iPads and iPod touches unveiled since September 2014.
The iPhone maker also said today that iOS 12 is currently powering 70 percent of all devices in the wild. Both data points-72 percent of devices sold in the last four years and 70 percent of all devices in the wild—was derived from access logs captured by App Store on December 3, 2018.
Just a few days ago, analytics firm Mixpanel has pegged the iOS 12 adoption rate at 75 percent, outpacing iOS 11, which only serves to illustrate how inaccurate these third/party stats can be.
