Here’s how Chitika came up with the following graph below, which includes Canadian and U.S. traffic:
To quantify this study, Chitika Insights took a sample of millions of mobile ad impressions coming out of the Chitika Ad network ranging from September 19th to September 20th 2012. The growth rate of iOS 6 was then compared to total iOS Web usage using a time series to illustrate the rate of adoption of the new OS.
In the past 24 hours, approximately 43% of our visitors are using iOS 6 according to Google Analytics.
Chitika notes the fast level of iOS 6 adoption is something Android’s Jelly Bean failed to achieve, as it only was able to muster up a 1.5% adoption rate–in two months. Now that’s fragmentation when older devices can’t even install the latest operating system, whereas a three year old iPhone 3GS still can get iOS 6.
