iOS 9 Adoption Rate Breaks Past 66% Worldwide And Going Strong
People are installing iOS 9 in droves as Apple's latest mobile operating system for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch sees 66% adoption rate across devices worldwide.
iOS 9 Reaches Another Milestone - Installed On 66% Devices Worldwide
Apple has updated its developer website to highlight the current adoption rate of its mobile OS, with iOS 9 sitting at the top with 66% install base, and iOS 8 sitting at 25%, while the remaining stands at 9% worldwide. It's worth mentioning here that it was just last month iOS 9 broke past the 60% adoption rate barrier. Today's number goes on to show that iOS 9's user base is continuing to grow, and with Apple continuously working in the background to improve its mobile OS across the board, it's safe to say users will definitely upgrade one day or the other.
iOS 9 saw a sudden spike in adoption rate as soon as the Pangu Team released the first ever untethered jailbreak in the form of Pangu 9. But sadly enough, Apple acted in a swift manner to patch the whole thing with the release of iOS 9.1 download. Even with the jailbreak patched up, users still updated to iOS 9.1, all thanks to the introduction of new emoji characters, with a middle finger one being one of them. But still, given that iOS 9 is a brand new OS packed with features that have never been seen before on a mobile device, it's obvious that people would want to upgrade to keep things fresh.
