It took iOS 9 less than a day to reach 12% adoption

It took the latest version of Android several months to reach 12% adoption, but iOS 9 was able to do it in less than a day. Analytics firm Mixpane claims that iOS 9’s adoption rate is even faster than its predecessor’s, which CEO Suhail Doshi believes could be due to the fact that iOS 9 was the first version of Apple’s mobile operating system to have a consumer beta, which means people had plenty of time to familiarize themselves with the changes, not to mention that the update was much smaller than last year’s iOS 8 update. 

According to analytics firm Mixpanel, iOS 9 is making its way into the mainstream with the quickness, even though there were some early download troubles for some. The company tells us that iOS 9 is nearing 12 percent adoption less than 24 hours after it was released into the wild, which is faster growth than iOS 8, says Mixpanel’s CEO Suhail Doshi. I suspect that some of this had to do with the first-time consumer beta getting people familiar with the new features and in tune to the release schedule. Here’s what Doshi had to say, including how iOS compares to Android adoption: “iOS 9 has received 12% adoption in the last 24 hours and is being adopted similar to iOS 8 last year. This kind of adoption took Android’s latest operating system, Lollipop, in comparison 5 months to achieve. One huge advantage Apple got right this year over last year was that the update is much smaller than last year (3.5x smaller) — Apple has empathy for its users who have nearly maxed out the space on their phones. However, one issue for it being substantially slow compared to iOS 7 is that servers are having trouble keeping up right now as people update.”
