Apple broke the silence: iOS 15 lost to iOS 14 and iOS 13

For the first time in a long time, Apple released data on how popular the iOS 15 operating system is. The results show that among iPhones released over the past four years, the current share of iOS 15 is 72%, and iOS 14 is 26%. The remaining 2% are still using older versions of the system.

If we take into account all smartphones, then the share of iOS 15 installations is 63%, iOS 14 currently has 30%, and the remaining 7% prefer older versions. The share of iPadOS 15 is even lower: 57% for tablets released in the last four years and 49% for all devices.

Apple broke the silence: iOS 15 lost to iOS 14 and iOS 13

In terms of distribution, iOS 15 is significantly ahead of Android 12, but inferior to iOS 13 and iOS 14. In December 2020, the iOS 14 operating system was installed on 81% of devices, and in January 2020, the share of iOS 13 was 77%.

Apple is taking steps to increase the share of iOS 15. Early on, iOS 15 was an optional update, meaning users could stay on iOS 14 and receive security updates. However, now that Apple has stopped iOS 14 security updates, users can only get bug fixes and new features by updating to iOS 15.

Yesterday, it was confirmed that the iPhone 14 Pro will get round and oval cutouts.

39 Xiaomi Redmi and Poco phone models will receive MIUI

Xiaomi was supposed to unveil the MIUI 14 firmware and Xiaomi 13 and Xiaomi 13 Pro flagship phones today, but the event was canceled due to the death of former Chinese President Jiang Zemin. However, a detailed list of innovations and changes implemented in MIUI 14 has already been published on the Web. Usually, such a list is shown to the user when installing a fresh firmware. So what’s new in MIUI 14?

Personalization options have been expanded: new widgets and “super icons” will appear, something like a Tamagotchi (animated image of a plant or pet) can now be installed on the home screen, and applications that are used most often will be highlighted in folders on the home screen.

In MIUI 14, you can click on any text in the gallery image, highlighting it in this way, and translate it into one of 8 languages. There will also be “live subtitles” in the system. The Mi Smart Hub app will be radically updated – it will work faster and get support for more devices. MIUI 14 will allow you to forward incoming calls to a tablet, and if the phone is connected to a TV and text input is required, then this can all be done on a smartphone.

MIUI 14 will bring family-focused services. It will be possible to create a group of up to 8 people with different restrictions for each and share content in the group. “Family services” will allow you to set a common album as a screensaver on TV, exchange data on the physical condition and vital signs of all members of the group. Child accounts have a range of parental controls, from limiting screen time to using apps only from the safe zone.

In MIUI 14, the Xiao AI proprietary voice assistant will be greatly improved: it can be used as a scanner, translator, spam call filter, etc.

Xiaomi has already talked about a number of other innovations in MIUI 14: the firmware file itself will become smaller, applications will take up less memory, and almost all pre-installed programs (with the exception of the eight main ones) can be deleted.

True, not all OnePlus phones will be updated for so long. The new policy will only affect “certain models”, and these will most likely be flagships. And the very first contender is OnePlus 11.

OnePlus also confirmed the release of OxygenOS 13.1 firmware in the first half of 2023. The emphasis will be on safety. Also, the company is already working on OxygenOS 14, but there are no details about it yet: it’s too early to talk about the firmware, which will be released in October-November next year.

Elon Musk again postponed the introduction of paid verification on

The updated Twitter Blue subscription may not appear on iOS even after it is resumed. The reason is simple – Elon Musk does not want to pay 30% commission on each transaction to Apple. Considering that on iOS all payments go through Apple in one way or another, this mechanism cannot be bypassed yet.

It is noteworthy that during the first launch, it was possible to buy a subscription only from the iOS version of Twitter. As for the restart, it has been postponed for the time being. At the same time, the subscription will receive other changes. For example, the price will not be $7.99, but exactly $8. Verification by phone number will also be required.

Note that the original plan was to restart the subscription on Tuesday, November 29, but Musk changed plans at the last moment.

And earlier, Elon Musk invited a well-known hacker of the iPhone and PlayStation consoles to Twitter. His task was to improve the search engine in the social network. At the same time, the hacker and developer got a job in the most junior position and only for a while.

Also, the billionaire has previously criticized Apple for high commissions when buying applications. However, Google is no better off.
