iOS 15: only 8.5% of iPhones installed the update, down from iOS 14
iOS 15 is struggling to unleash the crowds. Two days after the start of its final rollout, the update was only installed by 8.5% of compatible iPhones in circulation around the world. Obviously, the latest version of iOS is less appealing to users than the iOS 14 update, which introduced a slew of expected new features, such as the famous widgets.
This Monday, September 20, 2021, Apple launched the deployment of the iOS 15 update on all compatible iPhones. The fifteenth iteration of iOS is more stingy in novelties that iOS 14. This year, the Cupertino giant was content to refine the interface inaugurated last year.
True to form, Apple announces big changes every two years. We will therefore have to wait until next year, and iOS 16, so that the operating system is entitled to more drastic changes. The group did add a few new features with iOS 15, however, like spatial audio on FaceTime, the SharePlay option, several improved do not disturb modes, and a revised photo app.
Are iPhone users shying away from the iOS 15 update?
The absence of major significant novelties results in a lack of interest in the iOS 15 update. According to a new report from Mixpanel, only 8.5% of compatible iPhone users installed the update as of Wednesday, September 22, 2021, two days after deployment.

Unsurprisingly, Apple has not yet shared official figures regarding the adoption of iOS 15. The Californian firm should not raise the subject for several months. Last year, Apple revealed iOS 14 adoption rate (85%) during WWDC, an annual developer conference, in June.
