iOS 13 Now Installed on 55% of iPhones Introduced in Last Four Years

Apple has posted the first stats for iOS 13 adoption since its launch on September 19th for iPhone.


Apple shared the statistics on the App Store Developers page which was updated today. Apple reports that ‌iOS 13‌ is installed on 55% of all iPhones introduced in the past four years, and 50% of all iPhone devices, as measured by App Store activity. The pace puts ‌iOS 13‌ approximately on par with iOS 12 adoption last year which hit 53% of active devices in a slightly shorter timeframe and a different device breakdown.

This year, Apple has broken down the stats between both ‌iOS 13‌ and iPadOS which were launched at different times this year. According to Apple, 41% of iPads from the past four years have upgraded to ‌iPadOS‌, while 33% of all active iPads are on ‌iPadOS‌.

Meanwhile, here on MacRumors, our analytics show an 84% ‌iOS 13‌ adoption by our visitors on the same day that Apple measured -- October 15th.

And 55% regret it the moment they did.


Zero regrets here. I suspect millions of others feel the same.

Some of these updates are people that had the update FORCED on them, like my wife and she is super-angry at this.

Just curious, how was she forced? Auto update is a user option, right? And why exactly is she angry and especially super-angry? What problem(s) has she actually encountered?
Thanks for sharing.

I've never seen a site more full of hatred to a brand they supposedly love. iOS 13 has been great for me so far. Only issue was bluetooth cutting out but that has been fixed in a timely manner. Some of you need to step back and realize things aren't as bad as you make it out to be. Now back to enjoying my super smooth 11 pro max.

Let's see... to install the upgrade, I needed to:
[LIST=1]
* Open Settings > General > Software Update
* Read about the upgrade and then click on "Download".
* Provide my device's PIN code.
* Click "Install" once the download had finished.


Gee, Apple, quit twisting my arm! :rolleyes:

Apple does a good job of pumping up those #'s by issuing public betas.
How many of those were already on a developer or public beta?


I doubt that would make much of an impact. The type of person who would be likely to work with and install public betas would also be likely to do the actual upgrade rather promptly anyway.
