Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) has been very active with its new device reveals and even a new operating system. With the iPhone 5, iOS 6, and now reported reveals of an IPad Mini, a new MacBook Air (and perhaps a new iPad?), Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) has seen much fanfare and enthusiasm in its products – even if the sock price hasn’t followed suit.
The latest report that at least gives a signal of the popularity of Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) products, as Chitika did a quick survey of “millions of mobile ad impressions” over a 30-day period in the U.S. and Canada – from September 19, the iOS 6 launch date, to October 19 – and found that the new OS has been adopted very quickly, though the trend is slowing down. The research showed that iOS adoption was very fast in the first days, as iOS 6 showed a 15-percent share of all iOS web traffic in the first 24 hours of availability, 25 percent after two days and 50 percent in two weeks. Currently, a full 60 percent of all iOS Web traffic comes from devices running the iOS 6 system – which not only includes the iPhone 5 but also any older devices that have been upgraded by Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) users.
While the trend has slowed, the trajectory remains positive, which is something that many app developers have been watching, some before they make the jump into developing apps for a new OS without knowing if it would take hold. Now that it seems to have taken hold, there is a sense that Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) will soon be dramatically increasing its app library for users as more and more Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL0 fans decide to adopt the new OS onto their devices – or even purchase native devices like the new iPhone or the iPad Mini – which may give a boost to the adoption trend in the coming weeks.
Of course, as these developers get their apps online and available for the new OS, it would be a natural expectation that Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) would continue to see revenue growth with the new devices and the new OS gaining widespread acceptance. That would certainly led to widespread acceptance of Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) success by investors like billionaire fund manager Leon Cooperman of Omega Advisors.
