Apple today announced that iOS 9 has seen the fastest adoption of any iOS version so far, with more than half of all iOS devices already running the newest version of the ‘world’s most advanced mobile operating system’.
“iOS 9 is also off to an amazing start, on pace to be downloaded by more users than any other software release in Apple’s history,” said Philip Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide marketing. iOS 9 was made available to iOS users last week, on the 17th. In comparison, iOS 8 hit 47% adoption rate only after three weeks and grew to 63% after two months.
Apple also confirmed that the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus will be available starting 8AM local time on Friday, September 25th at Apple’s retail stores. Both models will also be offered by all four major US carriers on the same day.
