iOS 7 has Been Installed on 71% of iOS Devices in Just 27 Days
We’ve been watching, as iOS 7 has quickly become the most popular iOS firmware version for iOS device users. New statistics from Mixpixel share that 71% of the world’s iOS devices are now running iOS 7 as of 27 days after the initial release last month.
Notably, this is a new record for Apple. Fortune notes that Apple's last major update for iOS, iOS 6, reached 61% of iOS devices last year, 30 days after its release. Not only has iOS 7 been installed on more iOS devices than iOS 6 was, but it did so in a shorter amount of time.
The other 29% of iOS device users can be broken down even further. 25.34% of iOS device users are running iOS 6, while 3.66% of iOS device users are running a version of iOS firmware older than iOS 6. These 29% of iOS device users are what make up those that refuse to update to iOS 7, those that can't update because their devices aren't supported by iOS 7, those that are waiting for iOS 7 to become more stable, and those that don't want to lose their jailbreaks.
With all of the new features, and the new appearance of iOS 7, it's not very surprising that these numbers have come to be a reality. The upgrade is very tempting for users, offering a breath of fresh air in both design and functionality.

Jailbreak maybe lead to the end. If no jailbreak, I am not gonna use iPhone for sure

I never upgraded my iDevices to it. Want to keep them how they are. I will experience iOS 7 when my iPhone 5s arrives on Thursday and when I buy the next iPad.

iPhone 4s on 6.1.3, iPhone 5s on 7.0.2. Best of both worlds .

Wow..probably the largest/fastest adoption rate yet. I would think its because this is the first iOS release to have a new look and feel. All the others were patches and tweaks...thus the quick JB's. Im willing to wait for a quality untethered JB :]

And 2% (I may be wrong) are waiting for a jailbreak

That other 29%—disgruntled iPhone 4 users and jailbreakers.

Ios 7 - not me
EVEN after JAILBREAK. The only way I would update to IOS 7 is when my themes will run on it with my Icons. Seriously, the new homescreen looks like Kmart designed it!

If you don't like iOS 7 then don't use it. But whatever happens please stop ******** about the freaking OS. Before it came out their were droves of people whining about how they hated it, how they'd rather go to an Android device rather than suffer the hideousness of iOS 7, blah blah blah.
If you hate it go and become a developer for Apple, pitch your idea for a new OS, and see what happens. If you're not willing to do that shut the _ _ _ K up.

Agreed. It's not as bad as everyone thinks. Personal preference but still. Animations. The new look. Coming from a person who hated all the little firmware updates to nothing that really changed, it really is a new phone

Everyone I know has it but they hate it...

I only updated because one of the apps I updated disabled my ability to make phone calls and it couldn't be undone even after uninstalling the app, bunch of BS...
