iOS 7 Reaches Highest Adoption Rate Yet. Now Reflecting 78%.

Despite the software initially being criticized for its clean lines, translucent layers and other ‘major’ visual changes, the latest information from Apple now suggests iOS 7 is growing in popularity among the company’s consumer base.

The company published official adoption figures for the mobile OS to its Developer Center, on Tuesday, showing the adoption rate of the software for the seven day period ending on December 29, 2013.

The chart showed that most of Apple’s installed mobile base are already running the latest version of iOS, with 18-percent still rocking it out on the software’s previous iteration – iOS 6, and a measly 4-percent of users running versions prior to that.

Shortly after the software’s public release, in September, you may remember we reported that adoption rates for the software had just about reached 30-percent. In a little less than 6-months, Apple has collectively convinced more than 75-percent of its current installed base to take the jump and try iOS 7‘s radically new look, and features, for themselves.

We consider that impressive.
