After just two weeks of its release, 60% of iPhones in U.S. and Canada have already been updated to iOS 6, Apple’s latest operating system, according to updated numbers released today by advertising and analytics firm Chitika (via CNET).
With over half of iPhone owners in North America running iOS 6 on their handsets, iPad users trail at 45% and iPod users at 39%, suggests the report. Previously, the firm reported that merely 24 hours after iOS 6 was released, 15% of iOS users had already updated to the newest OS.
“Overall, this data points to Apple doing an outstanding job of keeping their user base up-to-date with the latest OS,” Chitika said in a blog post.
“By comparison, Google’s latest data shows only 22 percent of its users being on its two most recent versions of Android.”
Apple released iOS 6 to the general public on September 19th with over 200 new features including brand new Maps app, enhanced Siri functionality such as more information about movies, restaurants, and sports scores, deep Facebook integration and more.
The update can be installed on iPhone 3GS and newer, the iPod Touch 4th generation and newer, and the iPad 2 and third-generation iPad models.
