ios 13 adoption
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.
