Apples latest iOS 13 software update might have been filled with bugs upon its release, but that hasn’t stopped users from adopting it. According to reports from Apple, over 50% of people using iPhones have updated their devices, only 26 days after the launch of the software.

In a blog post aimed at developers, Apple claims that 55% of all iPhones released in the last four years are running the latest iOS 13 software. 38% of iPhones are running iOS 12, and the remaining 7% of devices are running an earlier version of iOS.

Apple also provided the adoption rate of the newly released PadOS, however, these figures are lower than the adoption rate of iOS 13 because iPadOS was released a week after iOS 13 was launched. Apple reports that 33% of all iPads are running iPadOS, followed by 51% of iPads running iOS 12, and the final 16% of iPads are using earlier releases.

Apple is currently testing a beta version of iOS 13.2, which will include brand new emojis, fixing certain issues with the software and performance, and  other changes. Apple has already released iOS 13.1 through to iOS 13.1.3. Each update included a variety of bug fixes and performance improvements after being heavily criticized after releasing the initial bug-filled iOS 13 update.

In case you haven’t update your software yet, here is a list of the iPhone models compatible with the latest iOS 13:

  • iPhone 6S and 6S Plus
  • iPhone SE
  • iPhone 7 and 7 Plus
  • iPhone 8 and 8 Plus
  • iPhone X
  • iPhone XS, XS Max and XR
  • iPhone 11, 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max

Note that the iPod touch 7th generation also supports iOS 13.
