With the Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) WWDC event on the horizon, many are beginning to wonder what Cupertino is going to talk about the most. While some are hoping for news related to the next generation iPhone or iPad, others know that there is a better chance of details related to iOS 7.
With the new operating system coming soon, we thought it would be a good idea to dig up some information on how the current iOS is performing.
We didn’t have to look any further than Chitika Insights for this data. The company recently took a closer look at “overall iOS distribution through an analysis of millions of online ad impressions generated from May 21st through May 28th, 2013.”
The goal of this data is to show just how popular Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) iOS 6 really is, when compared to previous versions of the operating system.
Here is some of the information from the report:
“The results point to iOS 6 penetration having largely leveled off. Overall, iPhone users are more likely to have updated to iOS 6 as compared to iPad users, with most of the difference being that a significantly higher percentage of iPad users are still running version 5. A possible reason for this difference may be that many of the most noteworthy new features in iOS 6 were geared more towards mobile usage (e.g. Facetime over mobile networks, turn-by-turn GPS).”
While penetration may have leveled off, with 92.7 percent using Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) iOS 6 on their iPhone, as opposed to a previous version, adoption was never an issue for Cupertino.
This is something that Chitika touches on in greater depth, saying the following:
“Regardless of the reason for the disparity, the data bolsters the idea that iPhone users tend to be serial updaters. At nearly 93%, North American iPhone owners are almost all running the most recent iOS version in some form. Chitika Insights will examine how this behavior translates to the upcoming release of iOS 7.”
It will be interesting to see what the next generation Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) iOS has to offer. Along with this, only time will tell if as many people upgrade to iOS 7.
