iOS 15 Now Installed On Nearly 60% Of Devices, Exactly 80 Days After Launch

iOS 15 is now approaching 60% adoption across all iOS devices, precisely 80 days after it launched to the public following its official reveal in June of 2021, according to third-party website Mixpanel.

iOS 15 General Feature Blue
As of Thursday, third-party data analytics company Mixpanel said that around 58% of all iOS devices are running iOS 15, compared to approximately 36% of devices running iOS 14. Mixpanel had previously indicated that iOS 15's adoption was slower than iOS 14's release in the fall of last year.

Apple does release iOS adoption numbers but has yet done so for iOS 15. Apple's last publicly reported data shows 85% of all devices running iOS 14 as of June 3, 2021. All devices that were compatible with iOS 14 remain compatible with updating to iOS 15. However, customers on iOS 14 still can continue to receive critical security updates without updating to the latest major iOS version.

Compared to iOS 14, iOS 15 remains a relatively modest update, focusing on providing users more controls over their notifications and updates to stock iOS apps, such as Safari. iOS 15's rollout has not been perfect, and users have reported several bugs that have mostly been patched in subsequent iOS updates. As a refresher, check out our comprehensive iOS guide to relearn everything that was new in iOS 15.

That's an understatement

I wish I’d have held off updating to iOS 15 / iPad OS 15 personally (not that I’d have had a choice with my iPhone 13 as iOS 15 was preinstalled).

iPad OS 15 brings very little in the way of new features, but the amount of bugs it’s fetched in it’s stead are worrisome.

I’d actually be quite glad if iOS 15 adoption rate was slower, because it’s a clear sign that users are aware of Apples lack of care when it comes to polishing up these latest releases.

I'm NOT installing iOS 15 until I know about CSAM because I won't allow Apple to invade my privacy.

Meanwhile I'll keep using Google and Amazon services and posting my entire life and sharing my location on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, TikTok and Twitter

iOS 15.x is okay, but not great by any means. I'm running it on my iPhone XR. iPadOS 15.x blows chunks. I hate that piece of garbage and I’ll resist installing it on my iPad Air 2020 as long as I can. I'm pretty sure even CrApple knows they screwed the pooch on iPadOS 15. They are now trying to strong arm us into installing it. Well they can take their red dot on the Settings icon and put it where the sun never shines as far as I’m concerned. I'll stick with the less buggy and better UI of iPadOS 14.
