more than a quarter of Apple mobile devices have already been updated to iOS 14

Five days after Apple released updates to its mobile platforms, more than 26% of active iPhones, iPads and iPod Touch are already running iOS 14 or iPad OS 14, according to mobile market research firm Mixpanel.

According to Mixpanel, the adoption rate of iOS 14 is faster than that of iOS 13. The previous version of the operating system was installed on only 20 percent of Apple mobile devices a week after release. Widgets on desktops are named as one of the main features that push users to update. Also in demand were such features as “picture in picture” and the ability to install third-party browsers and email clients as programs used by default.

Mixpanel collects distribution statistics for iOS versions based on usage of websites and apps using its Analytics SDK. Therefore, these data are not perfectly accurate, although they usually differ from the official Apple figures within the margin of error. The Californian tech giant itself usually publishes the first data on the distribution of its platforms a month after their full-scale launch.
