Two weeks ago, Apple released the latest update of its mobile operating system, iOS 12 that promised to bring performance improvements. Though users faced couple bugs, however, the adoption rate does seem like better than last year's iOS 11. After two weeks the update was released to users, it's installed on 46.5% of devices, according to Mixpanel.


Mixpanel says that iOS 12 pre-successor, iOS 11, which has an adoption rate of 38 percent on devices two weeks after its launch, Back in 2016, iOS 10 was installed on 48.15 percent of devices within two weeks. Overall, iOS 12 have an adoption rate of 46.49%, whereas iOS 11 now powers only 46.42% of the devices, iOS 12 successfully overtook iOS 11 adoption rate.

Without a doubt, more and more people will be updating to iOS 12, as Apple said on WWDC 2018 that iOS 12 will bring significant speed improvements, especially on older devices like iPhone 5s or iPhone 6. For instance, swipe for the camera and bring up keyboard are 2 times faster, and share sheet could invoke instantly.

There are couple bugs in the iOS 12.1, but most of them will be addressed when iOS 12.1 released to public users because of the update is still in beta testing. Asides from that, iOS 12 brings popular features like Group Facetime, Digital Health tool called Screen Time, animated emoji called Memoji, Siri Shortcuts for creating custom voice commands, etc.

The latest data from file sharing company Egnyte shows that Apple iOS has dominated the mobile enterprise market. Though Apple's share of enterprise in desktops is low, the company has become the absolute leader in mobile business through the iPhone and iPad.

At present, Microsoft still maintains 91% market share in enterprise computers, and the remaining 9% is the macOS. In the mobile business, iOS's share reached 79%, and 60% of the business was done using the iPhone. The following are the most popular devices in the mobile enterprise: iPhone 7, iPhone 6s, iPad Air 2, iPhone 7 Plus, and iPhone 6.


Nevertheless, the iOS 11 is now installed on 85 percent of iOS devices, according to new statistics that was shared this week on its App Store support page for developers. That is up from 81 percent on May 31, indicates that the adoption has grown just 4 percentage points over the course of the three months, wow, that's disappointing.

While 10 percent of iPhones, iPads, and iPod touch devices continues to run iOS 10, still 5 percent of devices run a version of iOS earlier than iOS 10. The adoption rate for iOS 11 adoption is slower than iOS 10 adoption. However, with the fall event just a week from being held, iOS 11 will begins to lost its share, since Apple plans to release iOS 12 to all users.

Developer and iOS hacker CoolStar has released his Electra Jailbreak tool that's capable of jailbreaking all models of iPhone, iPad and iPod touch running iOS 11.0 all the way up to iOS 11.1.2. Even though the Electra Tool is available for download, but keep in mind that it is in beta and is intended for tweak developers and theme creators for now.

Like the LiberiOS jailbreak tool released last year, Electra doesn't install Cydia because it isn’t ready for iOS 11 devices just yet. As matter of fact, once if you have jailbroken your device you need to install tweaks and other stuff using SSH. Electra said to also excludes DPKG and APT, which are vital utilities that most jailbreakers rely on every day.


CoolStar says that Electra targets developers who want to begin updating their tweaks for iOS 11 ahead of the game. For everyday jailbreakers who don’t know what they are doing should stay away from using this tool. Cydia will be added with the public release if Saurik has updated Cydia for iOS 11.

As the Electra website points out, if you are a power user or a developer, you can install tweaks to your iOS device at /bootstrap/Library/SBInject using SSH, as for themes, it can be installed at /bootstrap/Library/Themes. Further of details about the jailbreak tool are available on the Electra Jailbreak’s website.

Apple has released iOS 11.2.2 for iPhone and iPad, it mark the ninth official update to the iOS 11 system. iOS 11.2.2 comes almost one month after the release of iOS 11.2.1, another minor update for Homekit issues. To download the update for free on OTA in the Settings --> General --> Software Update.

The company also issued a macOS High Sierra 10.13.2 supplemental update, which comes a little more than a month after the initial release of macOS High Sierra 10.13.2. Users can download it through using the Software Update function in the Mac App Store.


Both updates including fixes for the "Spectre" vulnerabilities that came to light last week. Spectre is a serious hardware-based vulnerabilities that take advantage of the speculative execution mechanism of a CPU, allowing hackers to gain access to sensitive information.

Because there's no hardware fix for Spectre, so Apple is addressed the flaw using Safari-based software workarounds. The Meltdown vulnerabilities were addressed in iOS 11.2, macOS 10.13.2, as well tvOS 11.2.
