Apple adds two-factor authentication to iTunes.

It’s been 24 hours since Apple dropped the official release of iOS 9, and the adoption rate of this new operating system is a little more than 12 percent, according to Mixpanel, a third-party mobile analytics firm.According to analytics firm Mixpanel, iOS 9 is making its way into the mainstream with the quickness, even though there were some early download troubles for some. I suspect that some of this had to do with the first-time consumer beta getting people familiar with the new features and in tune to the release schedule. iOS 9 has received 12% adoption in the last 24 hours and is being adopted similar to iOS 8 last year. Apple has been steadily adding support for two-factor authentication to its software and services, updating iMessage and FaceTime with the enhanced verification in February, after introducing it to iCloud websites and apps in July last year.

One huge advantage Apple got right this year over last year was that the update is much smaller than last year (3.5x smaller) — Apple has empathy for its users who have nearly maxed out the space on their phones. Apple originally added two-factor verification to Apple IDs in 2013, but as shown by the “Celebgate” leaks last year, in which nude photos were reportedly taken from iCloud accounts, not all iPhone, iPad, and Mac users had enabled the security feature. In retrospect, iOS 7’s drastic shift to flat design was not such a turn off after all, and it will probably remain Apple’s fastest-groining mobile OS.
