Last week wasn't too good for iOS 11 and only one-quarter of Apple users had installed the latest version of the operating system on their devices. However, the numbers have gone up exponentially and nearly 38 percent of Apple users are now using iOS 11.
The adoption rate of the latest OS is still far behind iOS 10 which also turned out to be the fastest adopted iOS version ever. In two weeks iOS 10 installations had crossed a mark of 48 percent which leaves iOS 11 lagging behind with 10 percent adoption rate.
Analysts believe that the slow adoption rate is the result of the delay in the release of major features that include Apple Pay and iCloud storage for iMessages. Moreover, the initial release had a few bugs that caused minor yet noticeable problems in the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus including the crackling sound from the earpiece when users were on call.
Later iOS 11 updates fixed the issue but it certainly left several Apple users skeptical about it which is most probably hurting the downloads. The installation for iOS 11 is increasing gradually by replacing iOS 10 however the latter still acquires 54.82 percent of devices. Nearly 6.69 percent of Apple devices still run an older version of the iOS.
The latest iOS 11 introduces several new features to Apple devices which includes an all-new control center, an updated Apple Store, and an improved Siri. Other changes include searchable handwriting feature, new keyboard features and an all new app switcher.
