iOS 8 is just around the corner and, if the iOS 7 figures are any indicator, it’s likely to find near-total adoption.
Apple just released the latest figures for its current-generation operating system, saying iOS 7 is running on a massive 90 percent of devices. iOS 6, meanwhile, stands at just 9 percent, while earlier versions of iOS represent a minuscule 2 percent combined. iOS 7 was launched 10 months ago in September 2013, making it the fastest-adopted mobile OS in history.
Last time we reported on Apple’s official figures back in April, 87 percent of users were running iOS 7, while 11 percent ran iOS 7 and 2 percent ran earlier versions.
Needless to say, this makes Android’s official adoption figures look absolutely pathetic — with a March report putting adoption of KitKat, the latest version of Google’s mobile OS, at just 2.5 percent.
