Microsoft Windows 10 Is Not Upgraded To The Latest Version By More Than 50 Percent of Its Users

  • The latest version of Windows 10 is not the most used version of the said operating system.
  • Comparing the version 1903 of Windows 10 with the version 1909 of Windows 10.
  • Increased usage of older versions of the said operating system being recorded in the last month.
  • People using even older versions of the operating system.

The latest version of Windows 10 rolled out in the November 2019 update. This may be the latest version of the operating system being discussed but we can’t refer this update to be the most used version of Windows 10. This is because nearly 50% of the users who started using Windows 10 have not updated their systems to the latest version. They are still using a one-year-old version of Windows 10.

AdDuplex provided statistics about the number of people using a specific version of Windows 10. The platform refers to the version 1903 of Windows 10 to be the number one version of the said operating system. This version rolled in the May 2019 update. According to AdDuplex, 50.7% of the personal computers that are running Windows OS are powered by the version 1903 of Windows 10.

Windows 10 is adding improvements to its latest version every month. With improvements being made every month, there is still not a confirmation that the version 1909 will be able to take over the most used version 1903 of Windows 10. But this might happen after a new version is released out.

Microsoft’s upcoming version of Windows 10 is the version 2004. It is expected that the new version will be shipped most likely in April or May of this year. Data from AdDuplex hows that the version 1909 of Windows 10 is growing at a stable speed from the past few months. We can say that more time is needed for version 1909 to overcome version 1903 of Windows 10.

AdDuplex also recorded that the number of people using all the versions of the said operating system has been increased in the last month. This might be an impact of the coronavirus outbreak. COVID-19 outbreak has forced global lockdowns and the people staying at home might have started using their old PCs. People might be using their old PCs which were not used regularly, hence they were not kept updated.

There are still many people using even older versions of Windows 10. The version 1809 of Windows which was released in the October 2018 update operates 11.4% of all the devices which operate on Windows 10. The said update came out with a lot of bugs and the company pulled it after some time of its release as there was a bug in it which was causing data loss. The version 1809 is said to be the buggiest of all versions.

5.5% of all the devices operating on Windows 10 use the version 1803 which was released out in the April 2018 update of this operating system while 2.2% are still sticking to the creators’ update or even older versions of Windows 10.
