    One month after its official public release, iOS 11 has been installed on 54.49 percent of devices, according to data collected by analytics company Mixpanel.

    iOS 11 was first released on September 19, and while adoption has been rather slow compared to iOS 10 adoption, it is steadily picking up. At the one week mark, iOS 11 was installed on 25 percent of devices, and at two weeks, installation climbed to 38.5 percent of devices.

    At three weeks, iOS 11 adoption reached 47 percent, successfully overtaking iOS 10, and the gap between the two operating systems has continued to widen. With iOS 11 on nearly 55 percent of devices, iOS 10 is now installed on just 39.17 percent of devices. 6.34 percent of devices continue to run an older version of iOS.

    Apple has released three minor updates to iOS 11 so far to address bugs and issues discovered since the launch of the new operating system. The most recent update, iOS 11.0.3, fixed an issue with haptic feedback and unresponsive displays, while iOS 11.0.2 addressed an irritating problem that caused the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus earpiece to crackle on phone calls.

    iOS 11 adoption is likely to increase significantly when iOS 11.1 is released, if past iOS launches are any indication. Major .1 releases often spur people to update, and iOS 11.1 introduces new emojis and may include Apple Pay Cash, Apple's peer-to-peer Apple Pay feature. In past years, new emoji have had a noticeable impact on upgrade rates.

    The iOS 11.1 update also fixes some lingering bugs, including one that caused Reachability to work improperly, and it addresses a serious WPA2 Wi-Fi vulnerability. It's not yet clear when Apple plans to release iOS 11.1, but there have been three betas thus far.

    This is a usage statistic not an installation statistic. It would be interesting to compare this to the installation percentage that Apple would know.

    Both happening at same time doesn't mean one caused the other.

    All the new features added are updates to apps. Apps get updated in Android devices too. You think normal people care about a new filesystem?

    Thousands of Apple reddit users are complaining what a buggy mess ios 11 is, and they think MR is too negative.

    The positive spin ... 55% of iDevices using IOS11
    The negative spin ... 45% of IOS users still waiting for serious bug fixe

    I remain in the 45% camp o_O

    1) battery impact on iPhone 7plus and iPhone 6S
    2) breaking the WiFi and Bluetooth toggles

    Otherwise I actually really enjoy iOS 11.

    Forget the usage percentage; how about surveying how many have had problems or are satisfied with ios11

    I just wish they would fix the issue where the Apple Music widget will show up randomly on the lock screen and won’t go away. I think it’s triggered by anything media from using the Remote app to connecting to your car’s Bluetooth. No way to force it to stop. Only starting the music app and then stopping and force closing. Annoying!

    Maybe someone at app,e should think about this fast os adoption and ensure the releases are more stable with less battery drain. Some of the bugs and design flaws in iOS are nothing short of embarrassing.

    I love Apple. But the company is so worrisome nowadays.

    I only went to iOS 11 for the features Apple spent half their WWDC keynote on... you know, P2P Apple Pay Payments, iCloud Sync iMessages, and Single Sign On TV Provider functionality.

    You can imagine how excited I am to have installed iOS 11. LOL 0 for 3. Guess Apple figures since they teased it in June then went crickets, they needed something to distract people at launch...

    Guess that's all it takes to distract today's Apple customer.... or at least the customer Apple is trying to appeal to. I suppose this is what happens when you get a conference room full of 50-somethings and white board "what are kids into these days?" and design your feature set around that.

    iOS 11 has been the best OS upgrade I've ever installed. I absolutely love it. No joke

    Now they started pushing a popup for the upgrade, I bet many people will be annoyed and will eventually give in.

    Pretty much par for the course when it comes to essentially any major new version release.

    Hard for Apple to strongarm their developers into re-writing their apps for 64 bit when only half the base has updated. Just another Apple ploy to force behavior on its users.
