iOS 7 Adoption Rates Beating Android, Other iOS Versions

With the major changes in iOS 7, analysts expected the adoption rate for the operating system to be quite high. However, calling it "high" is a slight understatement, according to data collected from various agencies regarding iOS 7 adoption in the first 10 and 24 hours of its availability.

By looking at data put together by Chitika and MixPanel, it is easy to see that iOS 7 is on pace to become more prevalent than iOS 6 in just two days. This is based on Chitika's statistics suggesting that iOS 7 saw an adoption rate that was 3 percent higher on its first day than iOS 6.

iOS 7 Beating Android

Google's Android operating system has had a re-occurring problem when it comes to low adoption rates. This seems to stem from the fact that some Android devices simply do not receive updates in a timely manner but most current phones do receive Android updates within six months after a new version is released.

Even though most phones are able to update, Jelly Bean (the latest version of Android) is on a fewer Android devices than iOS 7 already is on iOS devices. This may not seem too amazing, until you realize that iOS 7 has only been out for one day whereas Android Jelly Bean was released 450 days ago.

Analytics provider MixPanel says that in the first 24 hours after iOS 7 was released, the new operating system accounted for 35 percent of all iOS devices in their analytics. If this trend continues -- which many analysts expect to see -- then iOS 7 will be on more iOS devices than iOS 6 in a matter of hours.

This is quite impressive considering that even after being out for more than a year, Android Jelly Bean is on just fifty-seven percent of all...
