Advertising network AdDuplex  released its latest tracking data for Windows PCs, showing that Anniversary Update version 1607 of Windows 10 now runs on 86.3% of PCs. Meanwhile, only 0.7% of Windows 10 PCs are running the latest preview builds on the Insider Program.

The sharp increase in Windows 10 Anniversary Update adoption since its launch in early August seems to be in step with Microsoft’s plan to roll out the Anniversary Update to all PCs in three months time, though it still falls slightly short of that goal.

AdDuplex came up with the stats after monitoring global Windows 10 usage across its network over a 24-hour capture period.

Windows 10 Mobile adoption still low

In addition to the key details on usage of Windows 10 PCs, AdDuplex also reports that 16% of active Windows Phones are running Windows 10 Mobile, a slight increase from 13.7% in October. Windows Phone 8.1, on the other hand, still runs on a whopping 77.1% of those devices, most of which are not eligible for the official Windows 10 Mobile upgrade.

The slow adoption of Windows 10 Mobile might have stemmed from Microsoft’s lack of effort to raise awareness of the update’s availability to users. For example, Microsoft pushed out the Upgrade Advisor app to let consumers know that Windows 10 Mobile is now up for grabs. Without a push notification for Windows phones or an email advisory, mobile users wouldn’t have found the impetus to make the switch to Windows 10 Mobile.

In terms of actual Windows 10 Mobile usage, nearly 82% of devices are running the latest Anniversary Update, while more than 10% are running the Creators Update preview builds as part of the Insider Program. The remaining 7.7% are still stuck on the Windows 10 Mobile edition released in November.
