Apple provided the data. Every third iPhone user makes a serious mistake

iOS 15 was released on September 20, 2021. Users of all iPhones launched since 2015 can install it, but many do not.

Every third iPhone user uses an older version than iOS 15

Apple published a new portion of statistics on the adaptation of the latest version of your system. They show that iOS 15 / iPhoneOS 15 is installed on:

  • 63 percent all iPhones;
  • 72 percent iPhones released in the last 4 years;
  • 49 percent all iPads;
  • 57 percent iPads released in the last 4 years.

These data are downright frightening. More than 1/3 of users did not decide to update the system within 4 months, despite the fact that the vast majority of them have such an option.

It is worth noting that in early 2021, Apple revealed that the number of active iPhones exceeded one billion. This means that there are well over 300 million non-updated devices in the world.

Why are users not updating iPhones?

There can be many reasons for this.

There are still many smartphones in use that were released by 2015 that did not get the update. Therefore, the percentage of updates for devices released in the last 4 years is higher (although still less than ¾).

Many & hairsp; – & hairsp; especially the less technical & hairsp; – & hairsp; people simply don’t care about the system version and ignore update messages.

The problem may also be … slow memory. To update from iOS 14 to 15, you need at least 5 GB of free space, and not everyone is able to manage that much. Apple only from 2021 gives a reasonable 128 GB of memory in the cheapest models, and previously flooded the market with 32 and 64 GB variants.

The statistics are probably also underestimated by developing countries (eg India), where the network infrastructure leaves a lot to be desired. Just downloading a few gigabytes of data for an update can be a challenge there.

It’s worth updating iPhones

Each subsequent version of iOS & hairsp; – & hairsp; with the exception of the new & hairsp; – & hairsp; features also brings important patches to increase data security. Even if only for this reason, programming was always up to date.

In addition, many years of update support is one of the key iPhone prices that determines their prices. It is a pity not to use something for which you have paid a lot of money.
