A few days before in a blog post, “Microsoft has announced that Windows 10 April 2018 Update has already reached 250 million devices, and interestingly, the April 2018 update has achieved the same mark in less than half the time it took the Fall Creators Update. And now The latest AdDuplex report ( June 2018 ) shows that the April 2018 Update has been rolled out to over 78 percent of Windows 10 PCs out in the world. And the company claims that more than 3/4 of Windows 10 users are running the April 2018 update in June. That makes this rollout the fastest ever in the history of Windows 10.
For comparison, the April 2018 Update was at 50 percent coverage in AdDuplex’s May report. The Fall Creators Update took twice as long to hit that mark after its release. And Now it touchs 78.1% Mark As for other feature updates, the Fall Creators Update now stands at 15.7 percent coverage, while the Creators Update is at 2.4 percent. The Anniversary Update, meanwhile, is currently at 2.5 percent, while Windows 10 versions 1511 and 1507 come in at 0.8 percent and 0.4 percent, respectively.
The Latest AdDuplex report also notes that Microsoft’s Surface models have also upgraded to the newest version of Windows 10 operating system. The devices of HP and Dell are leading in terms of the market share.
As the Report says: “The leaders (HP and Dell) have gained a little market share while some others in the top-10 have lost a bit. MSI and Samsung have swapped places at #8 and #9 respectively,” the company said.
The list of top-10 PC vendors remains almost unchanged since the last time we looked at it in March. The leaders (HP and Dell) have gained a little market share (HP is still number one, with 27.45 percent of all Windows 10 PCs out in the wild. They are followed by Dell (18.45 percent), Lenovo (12.3), ASUS (8.06), and Acer (7.99).) while some others in the top-10 have lost a bit. MSI and Samsung have swapped places at #8 and #9 respectively.
Note: the report is based on a data collected from around 5,000 Windows Store apps powered by AdDuplex’s SDK.
For them who don’t aware about AdDuplex, this is the largest cross-promotion network for Windows apps, and the firm empowers developers and publishers to promote their apps for free by helping each other.
