iOS 7 Adoption Rises to 78% Based on App Store Usage


Apple has revealed iOS 7 adoption has reached 78 percent, based on an updated chart on its Apple Store Distribution page. This measurement is based on a 7-day period ending December 29, 2013. The adoption rate is up 4 percent from 74 percent which was reported on December 1.


When iOS 7 was first released our unscientific poll noted 58.7% of you loved the new design, 13.9% hated it, 7.3% had not updated yet and 20% said to ask back in a week. To put things into perspective, the latest version of Android KitKat 4.4 is running on 1.1 percent of Android devices, according to Google’s last official developer statistics released on December 2.

Let us know below how you like iOS 7 now, approximately 3 months in.

    I say the Evadsion7 jailbreak is responsible for some people to switch to iOS7. While others will stay on iOS6 because there is now a jail break for 6.1.4 via ih8sn0w’s jailbreak.

    Yes, I love iOS 7, and would never go back to iOS 6. Just wish some app developers were faster in updating their apps. And I still don’t know why some big corporations don’t invest more money in their app development as some still don’t even support the taller iPhone 5/5c/5s. Sheesh, how embarrassing for them!!!

    Only because apple force downloads IOS 7 against customer wishes. This is hardly nice of Crapple! They should be charged BIGTIME for stealing customers limited storage and costly bandwidth.
