iOS 15 It was released on September 20, 2021. It can be installed by users of all iPhones launched since 2015, but many do not.
Every third iPhone user is using a version older than iOS 15
An apple published New piece of stats about adapting the latest version of your system. They show that iOS 15 / iPhoneOS 15 is installed on:
- 63 percent of all iPhones
- 72 percent iPhones released in the last 4 years;
- 49 percent of all iPads
- 57 percent iPads were released in the last 4 years.
This data is frankly frightening. More than a third of users have not decided to update the system within 4 months, despite the fact that the vast majority of them have such an option.
It is worth noting that in early 2021, Apple revealed that the number of active iPhones exceeded one billion. This means that there are more than 300 million out of date devices in the world.
Why are users not updating their iPhones?
There could be many reasons for this.
There are still many used smartphones that were released by 2015 and did not get the update. Therefore, the percentage of updates for devices released in the past four years is higher (although it is still less than ¾).
many   – & hairsp; Especially the least technical & hairsp; – & hairsp; People simply don’t care about the system version and ignore the update messages.
The problem could also be… slow memory. To update from iOS 14 to 15, you need at least 5GB of free space, not everyone can manage that much. As of 2021, Apple only offers a reasonable 128GB of memory in the cheapest models, and the market was previously flooded with 32 and 64GB variants.
Developing countries (such as India) are also likely to underestimate the statistics, as network infrastructure leaves much to be desired. Just downloading a few gigabytes of data to update can be a challenge out there.
It’s worth updating iPhones
Every subsequent version of iOS & hairsp; – & hairsp; Except for the new features & hairsp; – & hairsp; It also brings important patches to increase data security. Even if only for this reason, the programming was always up to date.
In addition, the update support for many years is one of the main iPhone prices that determine their prices. It is a pity not to use something for which you paid a lot of money.
