A new report just released by ad network and data analytics firm Chitika says that Apple’s iOS 6 has already been adopted by 15% of eligible iPhone, iPod touch and iPad users, just 24 hours after the operating system’s release. The over-the-air nature of the update no doubt helped with that rate of adoption. Chitika also notes that the rate is much higher than Google experienced with its Jelly Bean update, which was on only 1.5% of devices after two full months.
The quick adoption curve was a likely outcome, given that Apple experienced massive increases in web traffic alongside the release. Another comparison point: iOS 5 took around five days to account for just over 20 percent of overall iOS traffic on Chitika’s network.
Update: Turns out Chitika’s not the only one seeing these results, as Chartboost independently arrived at the same results.
