In a little over 24 hours, the iOS 9 adoption rate has passed the 15% mark, according to analytics firm Mixpanel.

The iOS 9 adoption rate is similar to iOS 8 but is far faster than Android has managed with their latest OS, Lollipop.

“iOS 9 has received 12% adoption in the last 24 hours and is being adopted similar to iOS 8 last year. This kind of adoption took Android’s latest operating system, Lollipop, in comparison five months to achieve. One huge advantage Apple got right this year over last year was that the update is much smaller than last year – 3.5 times smaller,” says Mixpanel’s CEO, Suhail Doshi.

In the last hour, as we’ve been writing this, the adoption rate has moved from 15.09% to 16.22% according to Mixpanel’s data.

    Maybe if iOS 9 didn’t stop my iPhone 6 Plus from booting I’d adopt it. Back to iOS 8 for now.
