    Nearly four months after iOS 10 was released to the public, the operating system is installed on 76 percent of active iOS devices, according to new numbers posted on Apple's App Store support page for developers.

    iOS installation rates have grown significantly over the holiday period, jumping up 13 percentage points between the end of November and the beginning of January. On November 27, 2016, iOS 10 was installed on 63 percent of devices.

    18 percent of devices continue to run iOS 9, and six percent of devices are running iOS 8 or earlier.


    iOS 10 adoption rates may have seen a jump thanks to the release of iOS 10.2 on December 12. iOS 10.2 introduced several new features, including a new "TV" app, new emoji, improvements to Live Photos, and a huge list of bug fixes.

    Around this time last year, iOS 9 was installed on 75 percent of active devices, so iOS 10 adoption rates have eclipsed iOS 9 adoption rates during the same time frame in 2016.

    Apple has been steadily releasing updates to iOS 10, and rumors suggest we will see the first beta of the next major update, iOS 10.3, on January 10.

    Just not my Jailbroken iPad Pro 12.9" :). Could never use it without my tweaks which actually makes it somewhat of a computer replacement.

    Is that active and capable of running iOS 10? or just all active iOS devices?

    Since jailbreak hope and a actual beta release, its pretty obvious where this 13% comes from.

    All active iOS. But the data is pretty much going on App Store downloads, so don't take it as entirely accurate.

    I'd expect it to be higher with the constant pop up spam! Which you can't stop

    Does this include active iOS devices that can't install it? Like my iPad 3 retina?

    I doubt either of my daughters is in that number. I can never seem to get them to upgrade. Oy!

    "iOS 10 adoption rates have eclipsed iOS 9 adoption rates during the same time frame" = "iOS 10 adoption rates are almost exactly the same as iOS 9 adoption rates . . . " :rolleyes:

    Have you ever met a person who tried to resist? They tend to be angry with Apple with all the Upgrade Now alerts. Then they give in.

    I believe those alerts can be disabled through iCloud.

    Perhaps because your device bugs the crap out of you until you update it? That might be a factor. If you could just permanently ignore them that would be one thing.

    New emoji is the last reason anyone that I know updated. Honestly, none of those features were very compelling. I update now for security & bug fixes.

    They need to restore Genius playlists to get me to update.

    Whoopty Doo! How about fixing the issues with your Q&A and in my case, with Bluetooth on the brand new 7+ Intel modem units Apple!? I have submitted countless feedback requests and nothing has returned with any signs of fixing or resolution....

    mail- dear god - this is absolute garbage. largely ignored by apple. gmail awesome
    calendar - again garbage - apple did you forget about updating this ? google calendar is sweet
    imessage - emojis - thank the lord ! - okay i still like the blue imessages - is this the only hold you have on me?

    I have an old iPad 2 limping along on iOS 9 that still sees everyday use. I wonder how many others are part of that category.

    Most people I know who've updated either did it accidentally or because they got pissed off at the aggravating daily reminders. Hardly an achievement for Apple to crow about.

    I wish I could downgrade back to iOS 9 on my iPad Mini.

    iOS 10 made it almost unusable at times, especially Safari.

    It is now so laggy, and the screen goes totally white when scrolling in Safari. The recent updates made the lagginess slightly better, but the iPad Mini was much more solid on older iOS 8 and 9.

    Yeah this is honestly not impressive anymore. Not when Apple is forcing you to update. But that's business strategy like everything else.

    I'm seeing higher numbers through my App analytics. ~84% are on iOS 10
    Probably skewed somewhat by all those new users with their shinny new xmas presents.
    App sales this week have been double what I normally see.
