AdDuplex has released its usual monthly report covering the usage distribution of WIndows 10 version across devices. The data is gathered from 5,000 apps on the Microsoft Store using the AdDuplux SDK v.2 or higher, and it includes about 100,000 PCs. The data was collected on April 29.
Looking at the usage distribution, we can see that the Windows 10 November 2019 Update, or version 1909, is keeping up its slow, but steady growth, and it’s now on 33.4% of Windows 10 PCs. The 5.2% increase is slightly higher than last month’s, and it pushes the latest version of Windows 10 past the one-third adoption rate. The overwhelming majority of users is still on the May 2019 Update, version 1903, but that has seen a 1.5% drop and is now on less than half of the PCs included in the survey.
Every previous version of Windows 10 seems to have dropped noticeably, with the October 2018 Update dropping below 10% and the April 2018 Update now under 5%. The number of PCs running Insider builds has seen a small increase, possibly due to Windows 10 version 2004 now being available in the Release Preview ring, nearing a public release.
The usage history doesn’t show much that’s new, and we can clearly observe that the adoption for Windows 10 version 1909 has kept a steady growth since it’s release. Most previous updates would see a rapid increase shortly after launch as feature updates were installed automatically, but that’s no longer the case.
Every now and then, these reports also cover hardware usage, but that’s not something we get this month. It’s not really clear when we can expect to see that again.
