Active device percentage must be what...90...95%?
What the hell are you talking about, all the older Apple products cant run iOS 6. Iphone, iphone 3g ipad 1, all the older gen products. Its talking about 300 million iOS devices that are on iOS 6 so 300 million of those devices are compatible with iOS 6

Because when I updated to iOS 5 from iOS 4, it got slower, less responsive. I assumed that iOS 6 would be slower again.

Why would ppl regret it? Google Maps is on iOS 6 if people have a problem with Apple maps. For me Apple Maps has worked great so far so

My iPhone 4 is running iOS 6. It has Apple Maps and Google Maps. I use Google Maps for navigation because Maps in iOS 6 on an iPhone 4 can't do turn-by-turn, but I use Apple Maps for everything else because it's better.

Aside from having turn-by-turn, it's worse, but turn-by-turn is what matters.

Sigh...I'm aware the older devices can't run iOS6...

The article CLEARLY states that 300 million is "roughly 60 percent of all iOS devices ever sold". That means that Apple has sold 500 million iOS devices (300/500 = 60%...try to keep up), including devices that are incapable of running iOS6.

Therefore my question was, before you butchered it...how many actively used devices that are running iOS6. Yes, that 500 million number includes devices that can't run iOS6, but a lot of those devices sold are now in the trash or being unused.

People can recycle if they want to.

None if folks bother to recycle their equipment. Apple stores gladly accept old hardware for recycling. You can google your local waste management utility/vendor to look at their computer recycling schedules.

A little personal responsibility can go a long way.

Ridiculous to compare iOS 6 to the latest versions of android. Are people not aware that ICS and above were specifically designed for tablets (the much smaller market for android) and not phones (the much larger market)? Not quite the same comparison. Nice try though. Only very recently has ICS made it to the other side.

iOS 7 needs to be ground breaking, Apple's updates are really getting stale. They are offering virtually nothing of interest in the iOS updates "200 features" that no one will ever notice, use or care about. Really other than some color changes from iOS 5, I hardly even notice the new features. They are offering the same tired old camera/processor updates year after year..while letting other devices suffer slow deaths (iPod Classic).

If Apple wants to take their devices to the next level, bring on a FILE SYSTEM. Unfortunately its not the way Apple works, they'll intentionally short one device to make it a selling point in another..as such file systems are apparently a Mac only thing.

As an App developer myself I haven't seen what it so hard? Just because the default project settings are something doesn't mean you must use them. I find it just as easy as developing for other platforms and supporting "older" OS's.

To me it's a lot easier than developing a program for the PC that must support a ton of different hardware, resolutions, OS's and more. And people say that iOS is getting fragmented? Developers have always dealt with fragmentation and always will.

It's cool.

I could've made it more obvious by adding something along the lines of "Indeed! My iPhone currently features 68% iOS 6, 4% iOS 5, and 28% 'Other' " and then even more obvious by adding "/sarcasm" at the end of the post.

But it's alright. I'm familiar with stress so I can at least partially relate.

Hi,
I wasn't referring to starting a new project, I was talking about supporting older ones. And if you think having to change a bunch of compiler settings manually is not that difficult (after scouring the web for the magic settings), then good for you. I find it a bit of a pain in the arse. It was much easier before xcode 4. Then again, having IB separate was a big pain too! :-)

People wanted 4g which was missing on some carriers kind of a no brainer why it was downloaded so fast.

Maps still suck
