Since iOS 12 was launched last September, the initial pickup was generally quick, especially compared to the previous year with iOS 11. This was mainly down to the focus on basic improvements for performance and stability, whereas iOS 10 and iOS 11 were much more buggy, in comparison.

Now, this week Apple has now published new numbers, mainly aimed at its developers detailing the current adoption rate for devices running iOS 12.

In the report, Apple has outlined that out of all the devices listed above, 80% of them are now running iOS 12, the latest version of the OS. Just 12% are using iOS 11 and 8% are on iOS 10 or earlier.
