Data from Apple shows that as on December 4, 2017, 59 percent of iOS devices out there accessing the App Store regularly were running iOS 11. 33 percent of devices still remained on iOS 10 while other older versions of the OS was found to be running on another 8 percent of devices.
Compared to previous data from Apple which was released on November 6, iOS 11 market share has increased from 52 percent to 59 percent in a month. Considering that iOS 11 was first released to the public in late September that is still an awfully slow adoption rate by Apple’s standard. Its likely that many iPhone and iPad owners are holding out on installing iOS 11 on their devices due to various performance issues and bugs being reported with the OS. Recently, a bug in iOS 11.1 led to iPhones and iPads of thousands of owners entering into a respring/reboot loop which led Apple to release iOS 11.2 to the public on a weekend.
Since the release of iOS 11 in late September, Apple has rolled out a number of updates for the OS to fix various bugs and improve its overall stability. However, the OS does not seem to be as stable as previous versions of iOS with major bugs being discovered almost every other week. The recent iOS 11.2 update does pack a number of bug fixes that should help improve the overall stability of the OS but that’s something only time will tell.
