Apple released new numbers stating the certification rate for iOS 14 and iPadOS 14 as of December 15, 2020.
The numbers came through Update For the App Store page across the Apple developer website, This is for the first time since iOS 14 was released to the public in September.
And new Apple data indicates that iOS 14 is now installed across 81 percent of iPhones released in the past four years.
Apple’s data for iOS and iPadOS usage numbers depends on which devices access the app store.
The most recent set of data was measured on December 15, Apple says, noting that the company did not provide a similar update last year, so we cannot make comparisons on an annual basis.
And 17 percent of devices introduced in the past four years run iOS 13, while 2 percent of devices run an earlier version of iOS.
Regardless of which devices were released in the last four years, iOS 14 now works across 72 percent of all iPhones currently in use.
While iOS 13 works across only 18 percent of all iPhones currently in use, the remaining 10 percent works with an earlier version of the operating system.
And when it comes to iPadOS 14, 75 percent of iPads launched in the past four years now run iPadOS 14.
While 22 percent of iPads introduced in the past four years run iPadOS 13, 3 percent work through an earlier version.
This number decreases slightly when talking about all iPads, as 61 percent of iPads run iPadOS 14, 21 percent of iPads still run iPadOS 13, while 18 percent use an earlier version.
It is not surprising to see high adoption numbers for the system three months after the release, as iOS 14 and iPadOS 14 were installed on 26 percent of devices. A week after launch in September.
It is reported that Google stopped reporting numbers on Android distributions earlier this year.
