Apple on Thursday answered a question that many people have wondered: How is the adoption of iOS 7 going? According to data on Apple’s Web site, I’d say pretty well.
First show at Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference in June, iOS 7 was released to the public in September. As of December 1, 2013, iOS 7 is on 74% of Apple devices. Considering Apple has hundreds of millions of iOS devices around the world, that is a significant achievement.
The information also shows that 22% of users are still using iOS 6, with only 4% of users on older versions of iOS.
Meanwhile, Google’s latest release of Android, codenamed KitKat, only has 1.1 percent of active Android devices. In fact, Android’s new release is doing so poorly, the older version of the operating system is actually gaining in popularity among Android users.
