MacRumors notes that the new milestone is a 3% increase from the iOS 7 installation numbers of 87% back in April.

As you might expect, while iOS 7 continues on the upward trend, iOS 6 installation rates have dropped, albeit only slightly, falling from 11% in April, down to 9% in July. Earlier versions of the mobile OS accounted for a mere 2% of all devices.
