iOS 7 is popular to say the least… despite the initial criticisms of Apple’s new mobile operating system everyone I have talked to so far who have updated in my close circle of friends and family is loving the new design.
Just how good?
Well consider this. Google’s latest version of JellyBean for Android devices is currently at 8.5% in over a month. iOS 7 almost beat that by 5 times in 24 hours.
As you can see in Mixpanel’s live data chart above, iOS 7 has been adopted by 37.47% at the time of this writing. According to CultOfMac “they measure this data from the over 1,420 businesses that hire them to track actions in mobile apps and websites, including iOS versions”
Apple always seems to have much higher adoption rates with iOS than Google’s mobile operating system Android and this is likely due to Apple’s own approach to hardware and software integration. Another element that could come into play as well is the fact that more devices run Android.
Apple will of course also release official numbers of the adoption rate at some point, so we will keep you posted.
