Apple's App Store Usage Numbers Put iOS 7 Adoption at 80%

Following approximately four-and-a-half months of availability, iOS 7 is now installed on 80 percent of devices connected to the App Store, according to the newest numbers posted on Apple's App Store support page for developers.

As iOS 7 adoption numbers grow, iOS 6 usage continues to drop, and the older operating system is now installed on just 17 percent of devices. Three percent of devices also continue use even older versions of iOS.

In early December, iOS 7 usage was at 74 percent, jumping to 78 percent later in December, while iOS 6 usage first declined to 22 percent and then to 18 percent.

Apple's data, which comes directly from the App Store, represents the most accurate iOS 7 adoption information for developers.

I just wonder how many people are actually happy with their upgrade. Anyone I've met who likes it can never give me specifics, which makes me think they either don't use their devices much, or ignore the inconveniences and horrible look of the OS in general.

It's only your opinion that it looks horrible. I personally love the new look!

I really like iOS 7, as soon as 7.1 hits I think it'll be a fantastic mobile OS.

Numbers like this are a complete joke.

My ipod touch 2nd gen gets used every single day. Apple intentionally cut off support at version 4. Since it can no longer update or download apps etc, it "disappears" off the charts, and doesn't get counted in the 20%.

There are millions, if not tens of millions of devices like this, massively under-representing the "not 7" models in use.

The numbers don't say how many wish they never did.

I wish I could go back. This is the buggiest release yet.

My IMAP email is still broken :(

I agree the colors are awful. I'm glad they will be toning them done on the next release.
