What you need to know

  • iOS 14 has overtaken iOS 13 as the most installed version of iOS.
  • Mixpanel says that iOS 14 is now installed on 46.40% of Apple devices.
  • iOS 13, on the other hand, is installed on 46.35% of devices.

Reported by MacRumors, iOS 14 has now surpassed iOS 13 as the most installed version of iOS. According to data from Mixpanel, iOS 14 is now installed on 46.40% of Apple devices, whereas iOS 13 is installed on 46.35% of them.

The new version of iOS is only five weeks old but has fallen behind iOS 13 in terms of how fast the new version was adopted by users. According to the report, iOS 13 had already been installed on half of devices by October 16, 2019, so it seems that iOS 14 may lag behind by as much as a couple of weeks.

Adoption of iOS 14 is about on pace with adoption of iOS 13, but it's a little bit behind. iOS 13 was installed on 50 percent of all devices on October 16, 2019, with iOS 14 taking longer to hit that exact target.

Mixpanel also notes that 7.25% of Apple devices are still running an older version of iOS. Apple has not yet officially announced that its newest version of iOS has become its most installed version.

It is anyone's guess as to why iOS 14 is lagging behind iOS 13 in terms of adoption. The newest version of iOS is one of the biggest jumps in user experience yet with home screen widgets, the App Library, and more.

  • Came here to find out if iOS 14 is more stable than iOS 13 was. Was disappointed.
  • It absolutely is. The developer beta all the way through the public release was much smoother this year.
