iOS 7 is now on 85% of devices connected to the App Store, according to new numbers posted on Apple's App Store developer support page. The numbers come five months after the operating system's original release, and just two weeks after the release iOS 7.1, which was the first major update to iOS 7 with added visual tweaks, CarPlay support, and Touch ID enhancements.
The increasing adoption rate of iOS 7 has also led to a drop in iOS 6 usage, with the older operating system now installed on just 12 percent of devices. Three percent of devices also continue to use even older versions of iOS. In early December, iOS 7 usage was at 74 percent, jumping to 78 percent later in December and then to 80 percent in late January.
Apple's data, which comes directly from the App Store, represents the most definite iOS 7 adoption information for developers.
