Furthermore, the current iOS version powers 90 percent of all active smartphones throughout the world.
At this year’s WWDC, Apple launched iOS 14, which includes a slew of customization tools, widget support, and the contentious App Tracking Transparency feature. With a recent update, Apple also unveiled the subscription model for its Podcast app as well as support for Hi-Res Lossless music on Apple Music.
According to Apple’s most current data, just 10% of iPhone customers with iPhones introduced in the last four years are running earlier iOS versions. Among them, 8% are running iOS 13 on their smartphones, while 2% are operating iOS 12 or prior versions.
When it comes to iPadOS, the situation is very similar. According to Apple’s data, 91 percent of iPad users with an iPad model introduced within the previous four years are running iPadOS 14. However, 8 percent of customers are on iPadOS 13, while 1 percent are still using previous OS versions.
Meanwhile, Apple’s WWDC 21 begins on June 7th (tomorrow). The firm will reveal the next-generation iOS version during this virtual event, which will include new features such as auto-reply in iMessage, food tracking in Apple Health, interactive widgets, and Always-on-Display, among others.
