Ahead of the iOS 16 release, a new report has claimed that tech giant Apple's iOS 15 is now installed on 89 per cent of iPhones introduced in the last four years, while 10 per cent continue to run iOS 14.

According to MacRumors, the tech giant updated its iOS 15 installation numbers for the first time in five months, giving us a clearer picture of just how many devices are running the latest update nine months after it launched.
