Adoption rates for new operating systems are always a good measure of success, and if the iOS 7 adoption rate is anything to go by, Apple’s latest mobile OS is certainly a success. In spite of all the “issues” that have been attributed to iOS 7 – from excessive battery drain (it’s an iPhone guys!) to feeling dizzy thanks to parallax – Apple users seem to have jumped on iOS 7 quickly.
Mixpanel, a mobile analytical firm, has estimated that the iOS 7 adoption range is anywhere from 88 to 90 percent. These figures were obtained using Mixpanel’s real-time adoption stat tracker, which also monitor’s Android’s figures.
More recent reports reflect a lower figure – 85 percent, but that’s still not bad, is it? Here’s a visual breakdown of which iOS version Apple mobile users are on.
So how is Android faring in this regard? According to the stats, Android is lagging – way behind, with only 8 percent of devices running on KitKat (4.4) or higher. Not that this concerns any of us, right?
