AdDuplex Windows Device Statistics Report – April 2017

  1. 1. AdDuplex Windows Device Statistics Report – April 2017 April 24th, 2017 Compiled by Alan Mendelevich
  2. 2. Windows Device Statistics Report With Windows 10 1703 shipping to PCs and now phones, we dedicate this issue of the AdDuplex Windows device statistics report to Creators Update. 2 April 24th, AdDuplex
  3. 3. Data Source This report is based on data collected from around 5,000 Windows Store apps running AdDuplex SDK v.2 (and higher). The raw data analyzed was collected over the day of April 24th, 2017 (UTC time) unless otherwise stated. We have made every attempt to consolidate different reported phone model names under their canonical retail model names, but it is possible that some of the rare model name variations were not accounted for. AdDuplex is the largest cross-promotion network for Windows Store apps and games empowering developers and publishers to promote their apps for free by helping each other. AdDuplex was established in January 2011 in Vilnius, Lithuania. As of April 2017, more than 10,000 apps actively use AdDuplex to gain more visibility.
  4. 4. Windows 10 Desktop OS Versions April 24th, AdDuplex Close to two weeks since release, almost 10% of Windows 10 PCs are now running Creators Update (v.1703). It isn’t easy to compare the velocity with Anniversary Update (due to release timing), but it seems to be more or less similar. So, we can assume that Microsoft is rolling out the update with caution as they did the last time. 4 Windows 10 1.8% Windows 10 1511 6.0% Windows 10 1607 82.1% Windows 10 1703 9.8% Windows 10 RS3 (Insiders) 0.4%
  5. 5. Creators Update by Manufacturer (PC) April 24th, AdDuplex An interesting slice is to look at the update propagation by PC manufacturer. Not surprisingly the most rapid CU ramp up is happening on Microsoft’s own hardware with more than 20% already running CU or newer. The only other brand with comparable CU share is MSI. The rest are at 10% or lower. 5 0% 10% 20% 30% 40% 50% 60% 70% 80% 90% 100% HP LENOVO Dell ASUS Acer TOSHIBA Microsoft Samsung MSI Sony Pre CU CU RS3 Insider
  6. 6. Creators Update on Surface Hardware April 24th, AdDuplex If we take a look just the Surface hardware we will see that, not surprisingly, Creators Update is going up to the current lineup* first – close to 30% of Surface Books are running CU and close to a quarter of Surface Pro 4s. * We didn’t include Surface Studio in this chart as the absolute numbers are just too low to produce any statistically meaningful results. 6 14.4% 6.8% 15.2% 12.4% 24.1% 29.3% Surface Pro Surface Pro 2 Surface Pro 3 Surface 3 Surface Pro 4 Surface Book
  7. 7. Windows 10 Mobile Phones April 24th, AdDuplex It’s been a couple of months since we looked at the Windows 10 Mobile device usage. Not much is happening there, but as Creators Update is rolling out and not all of the phones are going to get it, it’s only natural to take a snapshot of the situation for the history. 4 out of 10 top phones aren‘t getting the official Creators Update and this is pretty much echoed through the long tail of the chart… 7 MICROSOFT Lumia 640 13.3% MICROSOFT Lumia 550 11.7% MICROSOFT Lumia 535 11.6% MICROSOFT Lumia 650 11.4% MICROSOFT Lumia 640 XL 11.3% MICROSOFT Lumia 950 7.7% MICROSOFT Lumia 950 XL 4.8% NOKIA Lumia 930 4.3% NOKIA Lumia 730 3.5% MICROSOFT Lumia 540 3.0% Other 17.4%
  8. 8. Mobile Creators Update Eligibility April 24th, AdDuplex … 60% of the phones running Windows 10 on the market are getting Creators Update and the remaining close to 40% will be left behind. 8 Getting CU 60.8% Not getting CU 39.2%
  9. 9. Windows 10 Mobile OS Versions April 24th, AdDuplex Overall, despite this data coming from a day before Mobile CU rollout, close to 7% of Windows Mobile devices are already running the Creators Update build. Combined with Insiders running post-CU builds this makes more than 10% on CU or later. 9 W10M 1511 5.3% W10M 1607 84.1% W10M 1703 6.7% Feature2 (Insiders) 3.9%
