One of the few snippets of news from today’s Apple earnings call was the latest adoption figure for iOS 7: by Apple’s reckoning, 80 percent of all iOS devices are now running the latest version of its mobile operating system. About 17 percent of devices remain on iOS 6, while only three percent are using an older version.
During Apple’s quarterly conference call for the first fiscal quarter of 2014, CFO Peter Oppenheimer revealed the company’s new iOS 7 has now been installed on 80 percent of compatible iOS devices like iPhones and iPads. With the 80 percent number, Apple’s most recent mobile operating system continues to dominate rival Android, the latest version of which — 4.4 “KitKat” — is only running on roughly 1.5 percent of compatible devices. In December, iOS 7 was reported to be installed on 78 percent of devices. Currently, devices able to update to iOS 7 include iPhone 5s, 5c, 5 4S and 4, and all iPads down to the iPad 2 and original iPad mini.
