iOS 7 is Now Running on 90% of Apple iDevices

Apple has updated its developers page, shedding more light on the adoption of its iOS 7 operating system released last fall. According to the latest numbers, iOS 7 is running on 90% of compatible iOS devices less than a year after its release, which is impressive.

If there’s one thing I really like about Apple, it’s their software updates. Whenever there’s a new version of iOS, it’s rolled out for every compatible device in the wild, and you don’t have to wait for carrier certifications, or anything else, for that matter. Android updates to go through a lengthy certification process from OEMs and carriers, taking months to roll out. And in the end, they don’t even reach all devices globally.

Anyway, coming back to the point, iOS 7 is running on 90% of iPhone, iPad and iPod touch devices, while iOS 6 is running on 9%. Previous iterations make up the remaining 2%, or thereabouts. That chart seems to have some rounding issues.

Apple recently showed off iOS 8 at WWDC 2014, and the new operating system is expected to hit devices later this fall, possibly alongside the new iPhone 6.
