Multiple Data Sources Suggesting iOS 7 Adoption Rates Well Ahead of iOS 6




36 percent of active iOS devices are already using iOS 7 according to information published by Mixpanel, a mobile analytics firm.

Apple has frequently touted the rapid adoption of new operating system upgrades as a significant strength of its mobile operating system, ensuring that developers who adopt new APIs and features like iCloud or Passbook will see a large market for their wares.

For comparison, ad network Chitika currently estimates iOS 7 adoption at just 18 percent, showing the serious variances in estimating iOS upgrade patterns. After the iOS 6 launch, Chitika estimated iOS 6 adoption at 15 percent 24 hours after release. iOS 5 took five days to reach 20 percent adoption.

iOS 5 added over-the-air updates, allowing customers to upgrade their iOS operating system without needing to plug it into a computer first. This means iOS 6 and iOS 7 upgrades were easier to perform than the jump from iOS 4 to iOS 5.

For one more data point, 44% of visits from iOS devices to MacRumors yesterday were from devices running iOS 7.

Will the issue with less battery life in iOS 7 become a bigger problem for folks? I wonder if people will claim the phone (especially the iPhone 5) isn't lasting the amount of time that was advertised when they originally purchased it. On one hand one could say 'it's your fault you got the new iOS', on the other hand people could say that a new Apple iOS shouldn't substantially decrease the battery life from what was originally advertised for their product.

Note to companies: adding features increases adoption rate.

Or IronicComments.com because I've seen a lot of those lately.

I wouldn't be surprised if a large number of those people would revert back to iOS 6. iOS 7 feels rushed, it's great in some ways, but horrible in other ways.

Edit: Some people don't agree with my comment. I'll make a thread about the flaws in iOS 7's design some day - just for you!

I haven't noticed anything. As weird as it sounds, it feels like my phone's battery has improved day by day. Almost as if iOS 7 has built in battery management, that adapts to your usage and location patterns. Try doing a clean restore.

It's crazy to see the scale of software updates these days. Hundreds of millions of users across the planet upgraded in the past 18 hours...

I'm not surprised! Global internet utilisation was 113% above normal shortly after release! And is still 93% above normal! http://www.akamai.com/html/technology/dataviz1.html

That's just amazing, the scale and speed.

I noticed my iPhone was pestering me this morning with a request to update to 7 (I'll wait till a point release or two come out - played with 7 on my iPad yesterday).

As others have pointed out internet traffic yesterday was double the normal amount...

Excellent point, there's alot more non-negative buzz around this update.

More people are on iOS 7 after 1 day than people are on the latest android since its release.

If anything, I thought iOS 6 felt rushed, and pretty much everybody had the same view when iOS 6 was released. If you really remember back, people have been having the same complaints over and over. It's just that with a new UI, such a stark difference makes people's complaints more noticeable.

In my humble opinion, iOS 7 is the most polished mobile OS Apple have ever released. It sings on a retina display, and dropping 3GS support has really enabled them to make something that looks really forward thinking.

Please feel free to archive this comment -- but go forward a year or two from now, very few who use iOS 7 would go back to iOS 6 without shaking their head.

Me neither .. In fact my ipad mini's battery is actually better and my wife's Iphone 5 is a tad better .. Even the mail app seems to be downloading emails faster. In iOS 6 , one very annoying message saying the email hasn't been downloaded from the server occurred to almost every email .. Im continually impressed with iOS 7 right now and airdrop is to die for .. One thing I would say is that it seems a little sluggish on my iPad mini .. Hoping for a fix

After a week of using iOS 7, I've just downgraded to 6.1.4 (fortunately Apple still signs it, I thought I was already out of time).
I like a lot of things about iOS 7, I really do... but somehow, I don't know why, something's missing... the pleasent, cozy, relaxing feel that I always loved about Apple products. I really miss this feeling, and now that I downgraded, it felt like entering my old beloved home. I'm not saying that I am going to stick with it forever. But right now I might hold off for at least another few iOS 7 updates, to see if anything changes.

I haven't experienced less battery life. It seems to be a tad better actually. I was at 100% before leaving home this morning and now I'm at 58% mid day.
