According to the figures, iOS 11’s adoption is currently sitting at 59%, which is much higher when you compare it to Android’s latest release. However as far as previous iOS releases are concerned, it is still lower, which some are saying is due to how in recent years Apple has been letting some pretty bad software bugs slip past, thus discouraging users from upgrading.

However Apple’s marketing chief Phil Schiller has attributed the recent spate of software bugs to a “bad week”, according to an interview with The Telegraph (via 9to5Mac) in which he was quoted as saying, “We just had a bad week. A couple of things happened, that’s all. The team is going to audit the systems and look carefully at the process and do some soul-searching, and do everything that they can to keep this from happening again.”

For those wondering, when iOS 11 was released, it was quickly discovered that the latest software release came with some bugs that should never really have been there in the first place, such as autocorrect bugs that happened not just once, but twice. There was also an issue with the Calculator app, a recently-discovered HomeKit vulnerability, and also a “root” bug in macOS that allowed users to log into a Mac computer without the need for a password.

To Apple’s credit many of these bugs were fixed quickly upon their discovery, but like we said, some of them should never have existed in the first place, like autocorrect and the Calculator which have been part of iOS ever since its inception.
