Apple released iOS 11, the latest version of its mobile software, last Tuesday, and within a week, adoption has hit 25-percent.

The numbers come courtesy of analytics company Mixpanel. In comparison with past iOS updates, iOS 10 hit 34-percent of devices within one week of its release, indicating iOS 11 is lagging behind somewhat.

With iOS 11 numbers growing, devices running iOS 10 has dropped to 68-percent, down from the peak of 92-percent right before iOS 11 was pushed out. Older versions of iOS are at 6-percent.

One week after launch, and Apple has already pushed out an iOS 11.0.1 update with bug fixes and performance improvements.

iOS 11’s numbers look even more impressive stacked up next to Android. The adoption rate for Android has always been low and Android Oreo follows suit. Even though Android O began its slow and scattered release back in August, it still isn’t listed on the Android Developer site. The newest version listed, Android Nougat, is only installed in 15.8-percent of devices even though it was released over a year ago.

Android 6.0 Marshmallow is still the top installed version of Android at 32.3-percent.

If you own an iPhone and haven’t update to iOS 11, it has a ton of new features like customizable Control Center and ARKit, along with a complete redesign for the iPad interface. You can check out our guide here to take advantage of all the new features.
