AdDuplex report for May 2018.

This month we observe the results of the first month since Windows 10 April 2018 Update release.

Windows 10 PC OS Versions Worldwide

April 2018 Update managed to reach 50% of Windows 10 PCs in just one month.

Windows 10 PC OS Version History

With 50% market share in just one month 1803 (aka April 2018 Update) is the fastest spreading Windows 10 update by far. It took Fall Creators Update twice as long to cross the 50% line, and Creators Update was under 50% for about 3 months.

Note: we don't have the data for the initial rollout of the first update to Windows 10 (1511, also known as Threshold 2). So it's a straight line from 0 to the first data point we have on August 22nd, 2016.

April 2018 Update by OEM

1803 share by OEM varies quite heavily. MSI, Microsoft, and Dell (as usual) are leading the way, while Acer and Toshiba are notably behind the global average.

1803 by Surface Model

Newer Surface models are beating the global average, when it comes to April 2018, while older ones are lagging behind.

Surface Laptop is a notable exception with only 37.3%. Another thing to note, in previous releases, Surface Pro 3 was often behind the other Surface Pro models but in this case, it is leading the pack.

Note: we've omitted Surface Studio in this report as total numbers are just too small for any meaningful interpretation.
