iOS 17 is literally around the corner and we can look forward to the unveiling of the new version of this mobile operating system next week, at the WWDC 2023 event. Apple has now boasted some interesting data regarding the current iOS 16, confirming past habits that this latest version of iOS is found on the vast majority of iPhones.

iOS users update honestly

As you know, Android is a hugely fragmented platform, and the latest version is usually only found on units of percent of phones. Apple iOS it’s the exact opposite. As soon as Apple releases it, it immediately spreads among iPhones of all generations and usually achieves a really respectable penetration.

Apple now published the results of the current iOS 16 and the latest numbers speak absolutely clearly – the current iOS 16 is found on 81% of iPhones. The previous iOS 15 from 2021, which still receives security updates, is used by 13% of phones, and the remaining 6% of iPhones run on older versions.

iPadOS is also doing well

Apple users do not neglect updates even on iPads. Fully 71% of them run on the current version of iPadOS 16, 20% use the previous iPadOS 15, and 9% then work on older versions. Other interesting data then show how many % the system has within individual devices.

For example, on iPhonech 11 and newer devices have the current iOS 16 in 90% of cases, and only 2% of these devices have not been updated to iOS 15 or newer. These numbers are very similar to those of the previous iOS 15 last year, although the time needed to achieve them was less for iOS 16.

Android is just quietly envious

Now that we’ve had a taste of Android, we can quickly take a look at how it fares. The current Android 13, which will soon receive a successor, figures on only 13% of devices. Most phones built on Android are running version 11 from 2020, which isn’t really a big deal considering Android 14 is around the corner.
