After two days of availability, Apple's iOS 6 operating system is now installed on approximately 15 percent of iOS devices, according to the online advertising network Chitika. On the findings the company said,
This level of adoption is a significant development and a testament to the vertical product structure Apple dedicated itself to, particularly when compared to Android's latest operating system which only saw a 1.5 per cent adoption rate within its first two months.
Of course this is a much easier thing to do when you make both the hardware and software for the device and have control over updates. The Android platform struggles with updating a large number of users due to carriers and manufacturers being involved in update procedures.
To reach its findings, Chitika took a sample of millions of mobile ad impressions on its network from 19 September to 20 September, and compared the iOS growth rate to the total iOS web usage.
Apple is also seeing fast adoption of its brand new iPhone 5 which was released today. The device had over two million pre-orders in the first 24 hours, breaking the previous record of one million set by the iPhone 4S.
