The latest version of Apple’s operating system was installed on a sixth of compatible iDevices within 24 hours of it becoming available, an analysis company claims.
According to Chikita Insights, which based its findings on ad impressions on sites it monitors, the new iOS version of Apple’s software was downloaded to around to 15 per cent of kits capable of running it. That’s the iPhone 4S, the iPhone 4 and the ageing 3GS, as well as the iPad 2 and the new, third-gen Apple slate.
The rapid and, Apple Maps farrago aside, relatively incident-free adoption of the new iteration of iOS stands in marked contrast to the fragmentation problems that affect Android and the comparatively slow adoption of new software handed down from on high by Google.
Figures from the search giant revealed that some two months after the up-to-the-minute Jelly Bean version of Android emerged blinking into the sunshine it is still only on 1.5 per cent of phones powered by Google’s OS.
