iOS 9 adoption rate at 12% after 24 hours, lags behind iOS 7

NEW DELHI: It looks like iOS 9, the latest version of Apple's mobile operating system is being embraced by eligible users at a pace comparable to that of iOS 8 although the initial rates were slightly lesser.

According to analytics company Mixpanel, iOS 9 crossed 12% adoption rate after one day of its launch. Although the figure is slightly less compared to the adoption rate of iOS 8 which had recorded 16% adoption rate, Mixpanel says the pattern is similar. However, it lags behind iOS 7 which had clocked a 20% adoption rate in the first 24 hours.

It's worth pointing out though that iOS 7 was a major release bringing a complete visual overhaul and new features. Also, Apple's servers have been facing issues with a large number of users trying to update to iOS 9.

It's also not clear if a large number of users are still to get the update prompt. Apple has done its bit by reducing the free space required for the update to 1.3GB.
