As ZDNet recounts, it took roughly 50 days for half of Apple's install base to adopt iOS 11 past year.

iOS 12 was officially rolled out on September 17 and has since been adopted by more than 50% of the Apple devices so far becoming the fastest and popular iOS till date but with ChargeGate, WiFi, Bluetooth, and other errors, Apple rolled out a bug fix update i.e. iOS 12.0.1.

It is interesting to note that the adoption of iOS 11 reached 65% approximately four months after its release. In the current case, the company is reflecting the growth in the adoption of iOS 12 by the users of the iPhone 6 and later models. Activist investor Jana Partners and the California State Teachers' Retirement System (CalSTRS), which both have stakes in Apple, early this year called on the company to give parents more tools to ensure children are using its devices in ways that aren't hurting them.

While iOS 12 is running on 50% of the devices, iOS 11 takes the second place with 39% share of all the devices. It says 53 percent of devices introduced in the last four years have already switched to iOS 12. Apple needed to rapidly push out updates to address security imperfections and an irritating autocorrect issue inside long stretches of iOS 11's release.

IOS 12 has managed to outpace the adoption that its predecessor managed a year ago.

The App Store page, updated today, shows Apple has a new way of breaking down the iOS installation rate.

It also seems that iOS 12 stands a good chance of outpacing its predecessor, when compared to Apple's figures released in December 2017. On October 11, 2016, Apple iOS 10 was installed on 54 percent of active devices. The new version that has features such as Screen Time and Siri Shortcuts that have attracted a large number of existing Apple device users.
