  • 1 Out of 3 Eligible Devices Already Have iOS 5 Installed

    iOS 5 is already a very popular update for iDevice users.

    iOS 5 has countless new features, which you can read more about here, that are so appealing that it's causing millions of people to update their devices (even instead of having an untethered jailbreak). The mobile operating system by Apple has been so successful that, just 5 days after its launch, it's already running on 33% of all eligible iDevices around the world! iOS 5 has brought several of our dreams into reality that were once impossible without jailbreaking our devices and installing the third party tweaks that developers made to improve on iOS. While iOS 5 won't stop jailbreaking it will only enhance it, it sure does make a lot of people consider if jailbreaking is even worth the trouble anymore. With Notification Center replacing MobileNotifier, LockInfo, and CallBar, and numerous other features of iOS 5 kicking some of the most sought after tweaks in Cydia out of bounds, jailbreaking hasn't lost its touch, however it has been challenged.

    So back to the numbers. These numbers do not include the iPhone 4S, because it would be an unfair candidate to include in the numbers since it comes preinstalled with iOS 5. The idea behind counting these numbers is based solely on which devices have been updated to iOS 5. Here are the statistics from localytics:


    The numbers in devices that have been updated to run iOS 5, in case the picture above doesn't load, are as follows:
    • 36% of iPad 2's
    • 35% of iPhone 4's
    • 33% of original iPad's
    • 27% of iPhone 3GS's
    • 23% of iPod Touch 3G's
    • 17% of iPod Touch 4G's

    So, it appears that Apple has done something very right with iOS 5. Users are speaking out by downloading it at absurdly fast rates. Just 5 days... and 33% of the world's eligible iDevices are running it. Very impressive, Apple.

    Do you have an iDevice running iOS 5? If you do, share below!

      My iPhone 4 doesn't have an iPod app. They split it into Music and Videos in iOS 5.

      Yeah I have the same problem which sucks because I usually am on my motorcycle when this happens and it's kind of hard to just restart the music.

      Running it on iPhone 4, the music glitching is from album artwork, I can shuffle through fast until a song with artwork then it slows down/freezes up. ( the whole app runs slower altogether though)

      Notification center is cool, don't see how it replaces callbar either though? There will always be a point in jail breaking lol. I can't wait to see themes for the notification center, or maybe different voices for Siri etc.

      Apple is just taking ideas that cydia's had around for ages, their new iOS is nothing "revolutionary"

      Apple Should pay the lock info devs a small fee for discovering such a tweak months before them...or maybe android? Lol@ notification center running and looking exactly like lock info, with less options.

      Wish I was still at 4.3.3 ios5 doesn't seem like enough to steer off jailbreakers, can't wait for it to be untethered.

      Last Wed. I had to get my iPhone 4 32GB replaced and the refurbished one came with 4.3.5 but had been jailbroken before because it had 4.3.1, 4.3.2, 4.3.3, and 4.35 shsh on Cydia's server. I am staying on 4.3.3 until all of the app store and tweaks that I use are updated for 5.

      My mistake everyone. I confused callbar with a function of MobileNotifier.

      I updated to iOS 5 a day from when it came out and I'm already missing my jailbreak from 4.3.3. The problem is that I don't want to downgrade back either or do a tethered jailbreak for iOS 5.

      Devs should just sue apple for using tweaks they created, everyone else is.....
