Apple's App Store Data Shows iOS 7 Adoption Is Now At 78%

When Apple introduced iOS 7 with its new design, I told myself that I won't update my device to this totally new version that I don't know it at all. But to be honest after I've seen many new features and many reasons, I decided to update my device to meet this new iOS 7. It looks like that it is not only me who loved and adapted with iOS 7. According to Apple's App Store data, iOS 7 adoption reached 78%.

That’s a nice little jump up from earlier this month, when Apple noted that iOS 7 adoption had hit 74%. The move can be attributed to the success of the iPhone and iPad over the holiday season and [possibly] the just-released iOS 7 jailbreak…

Here’s the graphic from Apple’s developer page:
With every 3 out of 4 users (or I guess more than that) now running iOS 7, that presents a compelling case for developers to either update their current apps to support the new OS or to build for it exclusively, which we’ve been seeing a lot of lately.

Earlier this month, Apple told developers that starting February 1 of next year new apps and app updates submitted to the App Store will have to be built with the latest version of Xcode 5 and must be optimized for iOS 7. Otherwise they’ll be rejected.

So what do you think ? Do you prefer iOS 6 or iOS 7?
