Apple's iOS 7 Accounts for 52% of iOS Web Share Just One Week After Its Launch
The latest version of iOS appears to be off to a strong start with iOS 7 now accounting for more than half of iOS web traffic across North America based on a recent study. The latest figures from Chitikaís online advertising network are pointing to 52% of traffic from devices running iOS in the United States and Canada now coming from iPhones, iPads and iPods on iOS 7.This is a 20% leap in the five days since the firmís last report.
Before the launch of iOS 7 last week, beta builds of the new operating system accounted for less than 1% of North American distribution on iPhones. Since its official debut, iOS users have readily installed the update resulting in a massive influx. This time around, the police also encouraged users to install the update as it touts strengthened security features.
The install growth for the new mobile operating system has outpaced that of its predecessor, iOS 6, which took roughly three days to pass the 30% mark. By February of this year, that figure had grown to 83%, which iOS 7 is on its way of surpassing.
For those of you who didnít know, Appleís latest iOS can run on iPhones all the way back to the three-year-old iPhone 4 though neither the iPhone 4 nor the iPhone 4S support all of the new features found in iOS 7. It also runs on the fifth-generation iPod Touch and on the iPad lineup dating back to the iPad 2.
