Here's how many iPhones and iPads are running iOS 17 and iPadOS 17

Vlad, 12 June 2024

Apple unveiled iOS 18 and iPadOS 18 yesterday, but they're only going to be released to the masses sometime this fall (before that you can look forward to a public beta program commencing next month).

In the meantime, iOS 17 and iPadOS 17 are still where it's at, so you may have been wondering how many iPhones and iPads are currently running what are still the latest versions of the OSes. While we can't give you exact numbers of devices, we can now give you percentages thanks to Apple releasing the numbers valid as of June 9.

Here's how many iPhones and iPads are running iOS 17 and iPadOS 17

So, 77% of all active iPhones are running iOS 17, which is less than the 81% of iPhones that were running iOS 16 as of May 30 last year. 68% of all active iPads are running iPadOS 17, and that is also lower than the 71% number valid for iPadOS 16 in May of last year.

When it comes to devices introduced in the last four years, 86% of those iPhones and 77% of those iPads were on iOS 17 / iPadOS 17 as of June 9. So clearly the last generation of OS releases hasn't quite been as successful for Apple, adoption-wise, compared to the previous ones. Now it's time for the AI-infused iOS 18 and iPadOS 18 to shine - we'll tell you how they did around this time next year.

Still doesn't excuse the fact that the latest android version dont reach a lot of capable devices. Only the current samsung and pixel phones get 7 years of os updates, many are still at 4 some even at 3 years of os updates.

Meanwhile none of the ROMs support 100% functionality, they come with no guarantee against bugs and when something inevitably fails, you're left with a brick that has all your data. And don't even get me started on trusting some "maint...
