iOS 12 is larger than iOS 11 already

Only after a few weeks after the release of iOS 12, it has more users than iOS 11. iOS 12 is larger than iOS 11. Why is that? Usually with every new version of iOS an old iPhone get ditched from being able to update to the new iOS version. But not this time. The new iOS 12 is supported by all devices that are supported by iOS 11.

iOS 12 is supported by five-year-old iPhones

The oldest iPhone that supports iOS 12 is the iPhone 5S. That is a five-year-old phone released in 2013. Originally delivered with iOS 7. All iPad mini since iPad mini 2 can update to iOS 12. iPad since 5th generation and all iPad Air and iPad Pro can update to iOS 12. If you have iPod Touch you need the 6th generation to update to the latest iOS.

As a comparison to Android, only about 30% of the Android users are using Android 8 which has been out for over a year. This is probably because it is up to each phone manufacturer to roll out new Android versions. And for iPhone, there is only Apple releasing new operating systems.
