Home » Anniversary Update runs on 76.6% of Windows 10 computers

The Windows 10 Anniversary Update OS is becoming more and more popular among PC owners. In September, Windows 10 version 1607 had a 34.5% market, but in October this OS version currently runs on 76.6% of Windows 10 computers.

According to the latest AdDuplex statistics, the Anniversary Update OS dominates all Windows 10 versions, and its market share has more than doubled over the last month. The second most popular Windows 10 OS is version 1511.

This market share growth should encourage developers to focus more on Microsoft’s latest OS and start taking advantage of the new features.

Speaking of the Anniversary Update, many Windows 7 users now fear that Microsoft is planning to resume its upgrade strategy soon. The company recently re-released its KB2952664 update, and the majority of Windows 7 users consider this update is actually Microsoft’s snooper patch. Time will tell whether users’ allegations are true or not.

The same AdDuplex reports reveals that Lenovo is now the second most popular Windows 10 PC manufacturer, with a 11.6% market share. Last month, Lenovo held the third place, while Dell was second with a 12.2% market share. HP remains the most popular PC manufacturer among Windows 10 users, with a market share of 21.9% down from 22.3%.

As far Windows phones are concerned, the Anniversary Update’s domination is even clearer, with a 84.9% market share. HP’s latest Windows 10 phone, the Elite x3 isn’t as popular as expected. Lumia 550 and Lumia 535 remain the most popular Windows phones, while HP Elite x3 lands on position 36. The Elite x3 will become more popular in the future, but it’s highly unlikely that it outperforms Lumia 550 and Lumia 535.
