iOS 10 is now on 87% of iOS devices, eleven months after its release

In June, at its Worldwide Developer Conference, Apple revealed that iOS 10 had reached 86% of its active mobile devices. Apple mocked Android during its announcement, pointing out that the newest major version of Google's operating system was on just 7% of devices, despite having been released last August, nearly a month before iOS 10.

Hours later, Google updated its official figures, stating that Android 7.0 and 7.1 were installed on 9.5% of active Android devices; that combined total rose further, to 11.5% in July.

Now, Apple has also provided an update on its iOS 10 progress. The Apple Developer site shows that iOS 10 is now installed on 87% of active iDevices, with 10% still on iOS 9. Around 3% of devices remain on older versions of the OS.

iOS 9 peaked at 88% before iOS 10 began rolling out last year. Apple recently released its fourth Developer Preview of iOS 11, the next major update to the OS, which will bring improvements to iMessage, Siri, Photos, Control Center, Maps, multitasking, Apple Pencil support, and more.
