On the other hand, for all iPhone models, iOS 14 adoption has reached 85%, while iOS 13 maintains the same 8% presence here, but there is more room for earlier versions, which total 7%.
The iPadOS 14 has a similarly positive adoption rate, with a presence in 91% of iPad models launched in the past four years.
