Windows 10 Creators Update Market Share Almost At 66%

Speaking of the word, the Fall Creators Update for Windows 10 is almost upon us next month, and no better time to take a look at what kind of an impact the Creators Update has had on the ecosystem.

Advertising network AdDuplex has released its newest tracking statistics for Windows devices, monitoring worldwide usage across its network across one 24-hour period, which in this particular case is August 22, 2017.

And it shows a considerable increase for the Creators Update, compared to last month.

The latest data shows that the Creators Update is now installed on almost two-thirds of Windows 10 PCs, which should be pleasing news for all involved. The update began rolling out in April for desktops, laptops as well as 2-in-1s, tablets, and other devices.

It now sits at 65.6% compared to the 50.1% in July, which itself was a solid jump from figures of 35.7% that were recorded in June.

In terms of PC manufacturers that are leading the way here, MSI is in pole position with 80% of its machines running the Creators Update. Dell comes second with 72%, while this newest version of Windows 10 is installed on 71% of Microsoft Surface devices.

Speaking of Surface affairs, the Surface Pro 4 is still the most widely used Microsoft device around, with no less than 43.6% of all Surfaces currently in use being this model. The new Surface Laptop rose from a share of 0.6% to 1.4% this month.

But what’s interesting is that the Surface Studio all-in-one desktop has not made much of an impact, dropping to a statistically insignificant 0.0%. from 0.2% in July.
