Fall Creators Update installed on over 5 percent of Windows 10 PCs, AdDuplex says

The latest monthly report on the Windows ecosystem from AdDuplex has arrived, giving us our first peek at how the Fall Creators Update rollout is going. Though the update has only been out for a week, AdDuplex reports that the Fall Creators Update is already installed on 5.3 percent of Windows 10 PCs. Though it's only based off of a week of data, the firm says the rollout is off to a "more aggressive start" than its predecessor.

As for the previous release, the Creators Update is now installed on 74.6 percent of Windows 10 PCs. That's just barely higher than the 72.5 percent coverage AdDuplex reported for the Creators Update a month ago. That's not too surprising given the that the Creators Update rollout had been slower than its predecessor, the Anniversary Update. For comparison's sake, the Anniversary Update claimed a 92 percent share of the pie when the Creators Update was released in April.

AdDuplex also provides an interesting look at the Fall Creators Update's spread among Microsoft's own Surface devices. As a whole, the rollout among Surface machines is ahead of the average, with Surface Book and Surface Pro claiming the top spots at around 20 percent coverage.

Keep in mind that AdDuplex's numbers are based on a sampling of 5,000 Windows Store apps that use its SDK. Real world figures most likely differ, but AdDuplex's reports are handy for tracking trends. The numbers for the October report were gathered on October 24. For more, including a final look at the landscape of mobile Windows OS versions, check out AdDuplex's full report.
