AdDuplex has pushed out its latest monthly report, giving us a snapshot of certain aspects the Windows ecosystem for the month of June. With this month's report comes news that the Windows 10 Creators Update is now installed on 35.7 percent of all Windows 10 PCs. That's up from an even 18 percent coverage as of AdDuplex's last report in May.
The surge in Creators Update coverage has taken a chunk out of the Anniversary Update's install base, but the latter still dominates for now with a 58.3 percent share of all Windows 10 PCs. That is down from the Anniversary Update's 75 percent coverage in May, however.
On the Mobile side of things, the Creators Update takes the top spot, sporting an install base of 58.9 percent of Windows 10 Mobile devices. The Anniversary Update comes in at a 31.9 percent share, while Windows 10 Mobile version 1511 is installed on 4.6 percent of devices. AdDuplex also pegs Windows 10 Mobile devices running Insider builds at 4.6 percent.
Also included as part of the report is a very early look at how the Surface Pro and Surface Laptop are faring. So far, according to AdDuplex's numbers, the Surface Laptop makes up a 0.4 percent share of Surface Devices, while the new Surface Pro comes in at a slightly larger 2.2 percent share. Keep in mind that we're only 2 weeks out from the launch of both devices, so it's way too early to come to any conclusions from the data.
Again, the numbers are interesting to look at, but there's nothing too surprising about the pace of the Creators Update's spread yet. So far, as AdDuplex notes, the Creators Update is tracking at around the same pace as the Anniversary Update before it.
As always, it's worth noting that AdDuplex's numbers are based on data collected from a sample of 5,000 Windows Store apps that use the AdDuplex SDK. Actual figures likely differ, but AdDuplex's reports can be useful for tracking general trends from month to month. This month's number were collected throughout the day on June 26.
