Here’s a break-up of the iOS6 adoption rate
Platform conversion provider Onswipe’s monitoring up till now have seen an approximate 60% of users have migrated from iPhone, 41.43% from iPad users and an average of 44.58% from both.
iOS6 maps surely led Apple CEO Tim Cook apologize to their customers but the adoption rate has not ceased still. Platform conversion provider Onswipe’s monitoring up till now have seen an approximate 60% of users have migrated from iPhone, 41.43% from iPad users and an average of 44.58% from both. These figures have accumulated just over a week and look promising enough.
The adoption rate is much faster compared to when the iOS5 was released. iOS5 saw only a 38% adoption rate during the initial four weeks of its launch. But then there’s a reason for that. iOS6 was pushed through an OTA update unlike iOS5 which had to be manually installed and required plug-in to iTunes.
Darrel Etherington happened to interview Onswipe CEO Jason Baptiste and this is what Baptiste had to say.
“iOS 6 has photo posting, where you can upload photos and videos from the phone, so now web apps, if they implement that camera feature, publishers know users can take advantage of it immediately,” And for us, they did something in iOS 6 that made Safari a lot better, it’s noticeable, so we know that 41 percent of iPad users are seeing a better experience, that’s great after one week.”
Apart from maps, no other operating system failure has been reported yet. You Tube exclusion too aren’t bothering users much. Apple forums have all maps complaints piled over and nothing else. Well, Cupertino is anyways working on resolving that and Tim Cook’s letter might have come as a major relief for users.
