iOS 9 adoption reaches 70% just ten weeks after launch

Apple’s dashboard for app developers was updated today with fresh new statistics pertaining to the rate of iOS 9 adoption. As derived from logs of iOS devices that have accessed the App Store on November 30, 2015, the various iOS 9 versions are now found on seven out of each ten devices in the wild. By comparison, just two weeks ago iOS 9 adoption stood at the 67 percent mark.
Just last month, iOS 9 had reached 66 percent of compatible iPhones, iPads, and iPod touches, and now it’s at 70 percent. Meanwhile, iOS 8’s share has dropped from 25 percent to 22 percent, while earlier versions have seen their share drop from 9 percent to 8 percent.

iOS 9 adoption had slowed somewhat around a month after launch, and that was blamed on early bugs and performance issues. But it was boosted again when Apple rolled out iOS 9.1 on October 21, with Live Photos improvements, lots of fixes, and most importantly, 150 new emoji.

Apple is already testing iOS 9.2 with registered developers and public testers ahead of its debut. The latest beta brings a whole host Safari improvements, including support for third-party Action Extensions — as well as NumberSync for AT&T customers.
