As of Thursday, iOS 12 has been loaded on 50 percent of all iOS devices, which includes iPhones and iPads, according to Apple's App Store Distribution page. Apple iOS 11 is still powering 39 percent of all active iOS devices while earlier versions are found on 11 percent of active devices.
Apple senior vice president of software engineering Craig Federighi said of iOS 12 at a developers conference earlier this year the new system offers "detailed information and tools" to help users and parents keep tabs on device use. It is worth pointing out that the four-year timespan metric is something fresh from the iPhone maker and is mainly aimed to show the popularly of the latest iOS version among all the devices that are available on its compatibility list.

As a point of interest, iOS 11 adoption reached 65% about four months after its release.
Yeah, you laugh, but emoji are one of the biggest update drivers, because people are people, and those aren't coming until iOS 12.1, a little later this fall. With iOS 12, which launched on September 17, it took about half as long - or just under 25 days - to hit the same milestone. Overall, the rate of Android adoption has seemingly gotten better in recent years, but it still pales in comparison to a new iOS release. Users say that Apple contacted them and asked them to provide their device logs to Apple Engineers after installing a baseband logger to track cellular connection.
With this year's iOS update, Apple focused on stability and performance improvements rather than introducing a whole slew of new features. The slow spread of Android maybe due to the large number of devices present in the market.
