The chart (above) shows a 45.9% adoption rate for iOS 7, while iOS 7.1 showed an adoption rate of 28.27% on all active devices for the first four days.
It should be noted that iOS 7 was a radical update, with numerous changes that attracted upgraders.
“iOS 7.1 and 7.0 had a similar growth curve on the first few hours,” says Onswipe analyst Jason Baptiste, who put the figures together for CoM. “iOS 7.1 did give 7.0 a good run for its money in terms of adoption.”
“We’ve seen a 2.36x boost in iOS 7.1 adoption over the past 48 hours to over 28%,” said Baptiste. “… Many people feel this software is like giving them a ‘brand new phone,’ hence the desire for many to upgrade.”
Onswipes figures are based on analysis of global iOS traffic from approximately 3 million devices.
