Windows 10 October 2018 Update witnesses a slight growth in user adoption

Microsoft’s Windows 10 October 2018 Update roll-out was no less than a mess, and as result users didn’t bother to update to the latest version. Fixing several bugs didn’t help either. Windows 10 April 2018 Update is still in the top position.

However, according to the AdDuplex report for the month of April, the Windows 10 October 2018 Update witnessed slight growth in user adoption, it added almost 3 percent to its share, making the second most used version of Windows 10 with 29.3 percent share. As I said earlier, the Windows 10 October still sits on top with 63.2 percent share, down from 66.3 percent last month.

Surprisingly, the market share of Creators Update and combined with other versions witnessed an increase of 1 percent, while the usage share of Fall Creators Update went down to 3.3 percent.

It is expected that the April 2018 Update will be in the top position for another month or so and it’s the Windows 10 May 2019 Update who is probably to beat the number, assuming a smooth roll-out for the May 2019 Update.

It is worth noting that AdDuplex report is based on data collected from around 5,000 Windows Store apps running AdDuplex SDK v.2, and therefore, you should always take these numbers with a grain of salt.
