Faster Adoption that iOS 11

iOS 12 has been adopted faster than its predecessor, which was beset by a number of difficulties.  In January 2018, iOS 11 was on 65% of devices, following its release in September 2017. It only reached 85% in early September 2018, shortly before Apple released iOS 12, which introduced a variety of new features. It hit 53% adoption around a month after its release.

Meanwhile, adoption of Windows 10, has finally overtaken Windows 7 as the most installed operating system in the world (via ComputerWorld). It is now on 45.5% of all PCs running Windows, almost three-and-a-half years after it was released.
