“Adoption of Apple’s iOS 6 continues to trend upwards, with touch-friendly website conversion provider Onswipe seeing more users flocking to the newly-released platform, despite its apparent shortcomings,” Darrell Etherington reports for Tech Crunch.
“Based on a sample of 100,000 users coming through Onswipe’s partner sites Friday morning, the company is seeing 59.43% of iPhone traffic from iOS 6 devices, and 41.3% of iPad traffic coming from those who’ve upgraded to the latest version,” Etherington reports. “Compare that to numbers for iOS 5, which saw adoption numbers suggesting 38 percent of iPhones were on iOS 5 four full weeks after its release. That was an impressive enough adoption curve, especially compared to the competition, but the key difference between the two – iOS 6 being pushed as an over-the-air update where iOS 5 required plugging in physically to iTunes – seems to be making a big impact on the speed of installation.”
Etherington reports, “The speed with which Apple can get users onto a new platform is a huge selling factor for iOS in terms of attracting and keeping high-quality developers.”
