iOS 7 was only released to the iPhone app developer community a few weeks back but already Apple’s newest software platform is taking the mobile market by storm. According to analytics firm OnSwipe, Apple is seeing impressive user adoption numbers. 0.28 percent of all visits to their mobile-optimized sites came from iPads running iOS 7 while 0.77 percent came from iPhone’s running the newest software.
These numbers may seem small but demonstrate that iOS 7 is achieving significantly faster user adoption than iOS 6 did when it was released. The CEO of OnSwipe was quoted by TechCrunch saying, “Developers are around twice as excited about iOS 7 as they were about iOS 6, and that they’re spending more time getting ready for the big changes coming in the new version of Apple’s mobile OS in order to have everything nice and tidy for the consumer launch coming this fall.”
iOS 7 is the most anticipated software release since Apple launched the first version of the iPhone back in 2007. The new mobile operating system has been made available for use by accredited iOS developers during the “beta”, pre-release phase. As a San Diego iPhone app developer its easy to see why coders and designers are quickly moving to adopt iOS 7 and upgrade existing apps. The new operating systems unlocks advanced features that will add value to the user experience and leverage device attributes not available before. iOS 7 will likely be adopted faster and by more users than any other software in history.
