    Default iOS 6 Sees 93% iPhone Distribution and 83% iPad Distribution Ahead of iOS 7 Reveal


    Although next week we’re all likely to see the introduction of the newest version of iOS, a new study finds that the current version of Apple’s mobile operating system is installed on more than 90% of all North American iPhones. Chitika Insights took a look at iOS version distribution ahead of next week’s Worldwide Developer Conference in San Francisco, finding that iOS 6 dominates both the iPhone and iPad with regard to North American mobile web traffic.

    Among the iPhones sampled in Chitika’s study, 92.7% were running some version of iOS 6. When it comes to iPads, 82.9% were running the latest version of the operating system. Within the remaining versions of iOS 5, iOS 5 was the most popular on iPhones with 5.5% traffic share. Apple’s iOS 4 had a 1.7% share, while iOS 3 had a 0.1%. Older versions fared a bit better on the iPad where iOS 5 held a 13.4% share. Versions 4 and 3 had 3.8 and 0.6% shares respectively.



    Chitika explains the relatively large continued presence of older iOS versions on the iPad as likely being an outgrowth of the feature upgrades brought to the operating system with iOS 6. The latest version added features such as FaceTime over cellular and turn-by-turn navigation, both of which are most useful on a device with a cellular connection.
    For those of you who might be wondering about the accuracy of the statistics, the company’s study was based on an analysis of approximately 300 million web page views in the United States and Canada in late May.

    Apple has remained largely quiet on what users can expect from iOS 7 though the company has confirmed that the mobile operating system will be shown off at WWDC 2013. Among the rumored features are a new, flat interface and a possible radio service. We’ll have to wait and see what’s true and what isn’t by being a little patient.

    That's what happens when a jailbreak works for a major release haha.

    iOS is just a great platform. Apple makes it so easy for the end user to update and stay current (if your not jailbroken).

    Just to clarify your statement for some android fans here, Apple makes it easy for jailbroken phones as well. Just hit Restore in iTunes and you'll be current. Obviously you won't be jailbroken anymore but Apple doesn't leave the jailbroken users stuck in the sense that if you are jailbroken, you can't update.

    On the other hand, Jelly Bean is only on 25% of all android phones.

    Apple just just makes it easy to restore. Doesn't matter if your jailbroken. My statement was more in regards to if your jailbroken and you restore the updating process (not restoring) is not as easy as the OTA updates. You have to wait for a jailbreak. And drowning on the exploit. You may have to restore.

    Apple has such a high success rate of idevices on ios6 because of the over the air update process. End user gets a notification to update and they press yes.
