According to a new report by Chitika Insights, nearly 40% of iPhones are currently running iOS 5. Apple released its latest mobile operating system to the public on October 12th, and users are continuing to install the new OS at a rapid pace.
Nearly one month has now passed since the release, and iOS 5 can be found on 38% of iPhones, 30% of iPads, and only 12% of iPod touch devices.
Chitika Insights measured traffic on iOS devices between October 22nd and October 28th to determine user adoption.
Almost 80% of iPod touch devices are still on iOS 4, while the iPhone is naturally showing the fastest adoption of iOS 5. The iPhone’s higher percentage can also be attributed to strong sales for the iPhone 4S that ships with iOS 5 pre-installed. The numbers also say something about how people use the iPhone and iPad as their primary devices, while the iPod touch is generally used more for leisure.
