iOS Version Stats

This page presents data showing how quickly users are adopting new versions of iOS. The data below is taken from the user base of my Audiobooks apps. This data may not apply to your application’s user demographics but should give a good general sense of where users are these days.

Audiobooks


This data reflects the active unique users each day across all devices. Since they are usage based the number can go up and down, this is just natural variation caused by the active subset of users each day.

NB: On January 26, 2015 I dropped support for iOS versions below 7.0, as a result the data for older versions is not as representative of actual usage.
