iOS 15 adoption still trails iOS 14 two weeks after release

0 8

This year’s version of iOS fell out of the gates when early users discovered a few major bugs. Maybe that’s why so many users are hesitant to update their iPhones to iOS 15. Two weeks after release, the adoption is far behind what iOS 14 managed at the same time last year.

Mixpanel’s previous analysis only showed data for the first two days – 8.59% of users installed the new operating system. Now the company states 22.22% adoption rate before October 5, 2021. By comparison, iOS 14 was already installed on 14.68% of the devices in the first two days and 41.97% after two weeks.

Keep in mind, though, that Mixpanel collected data using its mobile SDK analysis and counts the site and app visits by users with iOS 15. So their stats may be a little skewed. Still, last year’s statistics were compiled in the same way and were pretty close to the actual numbers.

In any case, even if there is a statistical discrepancy, it will far from offset the difference in adoption rate between iOS 14 and iOS 15. It is clear that iPhone owners are a little hesitant to move on, at least for now. Apple has already addressed most of the issues that occurred with iOS 15, so things need to be addressed once they are fixed with iOS 15.1 and subsequent updates.
