The operating system iOS 11 is installed on 76% of Apple’s smartphones, tablets and players. Compared with the data for January, the indicator grew by 11%. Another 19% of devices work on iOS 10, and only 5% – on older versions.
It is noted that regular iOS updates with the addition of new features (Apple Pay Cash, support for a more powerful wireless charging by 7.5 W) help attract the audience.
At the same time, at the end of last year, an unpleasant moment emerged: the iPhone with worn-out batteries was slowed down programmatically, so that the smartphone did not shut down under heavy load or in severe frost. Apple had to include information about the battery status in iOS 11.3.
Android statistics are not so rosy. Android 8 Oreo was found only in 4.6% of devices. A large proportion of gadgets continue to work on old Nougat (30.8%), Marshmallow (26%) and Lollipop (22.9%).
