Apple released their iOS 6 OS last year, and the company is about to announce iOS 7 at their World Wide Developer Conference 2013, which kicks off in San Francisco next Monday.
Now according to a recent report by Chitikia, Apple’s iOS 6 is now on 92.7 percent of iPhones, they also revealed some information about the iPad, apparently 82.9 percent of iPads are running iOS 6.
The results point to iOS 6 penetration having largely leveled off. Overall, iPhone users are more likely to have updated to iOS 6 as compared to iPad users, with most of the difference being that a significantly higher percentage of iPad users are still running version 5. A possible reason for this difference may be that many of the most noteworthy new features in iOS 6 were geared more towards mobile usage (e.g. Facetime over mobile networks, turn-by-turn GPS). Earlier analyst estimates point to most tablets being solely WiFi-enabled, making some mobile-focused features useless on iPads.
We should have more details on Apple’s iOS 7 when it is officially announced next week.
