iOS 12 now installed on 46% of active devices

According to data from Mixpanel, iOS 12 is now installed on more than 46% of active iPhones, iPads and iPod touch devices. It took iOS 11 a month to reach this milestone; iOS 12 has achieved it in under twenty days.


iOS 12 was installed on 46.25 percent of devices, while iOS 11 was installed on 46.57 percent of devices. 7.18 percent of devices continue to run an older version of iOS.

Mixpanel statistics — which are based on a combination of web and mobile app analytics — typically report higher percentages than Apple’s statistics which derive active iOS versions based on App Store usage. However, Apple is yet to update its official stats to include a timeframe after iOS 12 was released (Apple’s chart was last updated on September 3rd, reporting iOS 11 topped 85% adoption). Last year, Apple’s official numbers did not cross the 50% mark for iOS 11 until November.
