 iOS 7 Adoption Rockets Toward 60%, Android Cowers Shamefully [u]

There are hundreds of millions of iPhones, iPads and iPod touches in use and, almost as one, iThing owners are installing iOS 7. Apple released their latest mobile operating system opus on Wednesday and, by Thursday afternoon, iOS 7 adoption was surging toward 40 60 percent of the installed base [u] as of Monday afternoon (EST).

Web metrics and analytics firm Mixpanel has published an online iOS 7 adoption widget. By Tuesday evening, it showed adoption was nearing 30 percent and, as of Wednesday afternoon, iOS 7 adoption had surged past 36 percent and was heading inexorably toward 40 percent.

[u] As of this Monday afternoon update, iOS 7 adoption is approaching 60 percent of the installed base.

For what it’s worth, Apple pegged iOS 7 adoption on Monday morning at over 200 million users.

And, just before the release of iOS 7, 93 percent of iThings were running iOS 6, so you see where this is going — Apple’s perpetually satisfied users will adopt the new OS giving developers a clear (and massive) target audience.

That’s a good thing, a very good thing™.

iOS 7 Adoption vs Android

For what it’s worth, Adroid JellyBean (v4.1) shipped well over a year ago and its share of the overall Android pie is still well under 50 percent. That said, adoption of the most recent version of JellyBean, v4.2.x, hasn’t yet hit 10 percent.

Hmm, toss in the fact that the iOS App Store delivers 2.3 times more revenue on fewer downloads and now who are you going to develop for?

That said, iOS 7 adoption will DID easily surpass 50 percent this weekend and, sometime around Christmas, it will be in the 80 to 90 percent range, just like last year and iOS 6.

Apple’s got this shtuff down to a science…

What’s your take?

    Hmm, toss in the fact that Android has a 79% market share vs iOS’s 13% and programming for Android versions 4.0 and above are nearly identical. Who are you going to develop for?

    Lot’s of frustrated Android fan! Why?????

  • observer1959

    Just use whichever phone and OS you like. It really doesn’t matter if someone likes Android and others prefer the better option, iOS.

    Yes sure 79% but not all of those users use Apps they didn’t even know what is Apps, they bought phone because of Android(name) and not because of Phone plus ecosystem ;)

    Sounds like a butt hurt Fandroid.

    You misspelled Apple. It’s A-p-p-l-e not A-n-d-r-o-i-d.

    People buy Apple simply because of the name. They don’t understand that they can do more things simpler and cheaper with pretty much every non-Apple product. They think oh, look how pretty and shiny it is and hang on every word an Apple spokesman says even when they claim that something is new and innovative even though it’s actually been around for some time in other products and is in fact only new to Apple.

    The iSheep goes baah…

    Don’t pee yourself little fantard, I’ve got more up votes you do!

    I’ll tell you kid why more and more people prefer Apple products, let me ask you a question first do you ever own an Apple product? I doubt that.

    Second Apple is not in a cheap business, those are junk product (do your own search with this )

    I spell it correctly kid, so you want to tell that Apple copied Android? you made me laugh, without Apple you only got multi keyboard and not multi touch screen.

    If I’ll ask you what great in Android no doubt you shout and say
    1. Widgets
    2. Customization

    and nothing else, I’m an Android user kid.

    All my relatives you dont know tech buy and android smartphone because its cheaper. They dont really care about apps even setup a wifi for that matter.

    Many people buy smartphone but dont know 90% of it. On the other hand Apple users in general have data plan and download and use apps… which explains why the revenue stream is in apple not android even though there are more android phones. Plus the fact that only 3-4 days iOS7 adoption is 40%? That tells you they have internet and they can use their Phone and internet together. You may call them iSheep but they are consumers nevertheless. Problem with AdroidSheep is that they are not even customers hence development for Adroid is not so good compare to iOS.
