One in ten iOS devices have been updated to run iOS 12 in the first 48 hours after the public release, according to data from an analytics company, with the degree of acceptance leaving the latest version of Apple's mobile system somewhat behind that of the previous one. milestone version, iOS 11.
The release of a new iOS version usually leads to a deluge of users buying it as an update for their existing iPhone or iPad, or after the company's annual event in September, by buying a new iPhone. According to the data collected by the analysis company Mixpanel, the first results of the release follow a vigorous path for installations.
According to the iOS acceptance chart from Mixpanel, 2.8 percent of all iOS devices measured by the company had iOS 12 installed on September 17, the day of its release. It is unclear exactly at what time of the day the data is counted and the figure can also include people who have installed the beta version in days in advance, which according to the graph represents 1.13% of all devices.
Approximately 24 hours after release, iOS 12 installations hit 7.83 percent, followed by 10.38 percent the next day.
For iOS 11, the data indicate that it was 1.88 percent of the devices on September 18, 2017, the day before the release, when the total rose to 4.14 percent on the day of issue, 11.29 percent the next day and 15.91 percent two days after the launch. In terms of value, this suggests that iOS 12 is moving at a slower pace compared to the previous version.
It is unclear how reliable the data is, because details such as the timing of the daily count could affect the reported results, while the purchase of the data is likely to come from Apple, creating more ambiguity. Nevertheless, the data indicate at least that there is a level of installations for iOS 12 in about the same margin as iOS 11, at least this shortly after its release.
Apple occasionally issues updates of the degree of acceptance, based on data collected by iPhones and contacting the App Store and the company's other services, making it very accurate with its own results. According to the latest published results on September 3, iOS 11 accounted for 85 percent of all iOS-compatible devices, while iOS 10 turned 10 percent.
