iOS 7 now running on 74% of iPhones and iPads

Apple has confirmed that 74 per cent of all iPhone and iPad devices are now running iOS 7, up 10 per cent since October.

With the initial iOS 7 update having been rolled out in the days leading up to the iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C back in September, Apple has confirmed that a little over two months later, almost three quarters of iPhone and iPad users accessing the App Store have already updated to the iOS 7software.

Confirmed via an updated graph on the company’s developer website, Apple has revealed that the dramatically refreshed iOS 7 is now by far the majority software of choice for all iPhone and iPad users. Earlier this week Google revealed that just 1.1 per cent of Android devices were running the latest Android 4.4 KitKat OS.

Speaking during the company’s iPad launch in October which saw the iPad Air and iPad mini 2 both enter the realms of reality, Apple CEO Tim Cook described iOS 7 as “some of Apple’s best work” and, confirming the then 64 per cent install base, stated “customers agree, they love the bold new redesign.”

Introducing a range of new features and functions, iOS 7 marks the biggest refresh to Apple’s mobile operating system since the original iPhone was launched.

Designed by Apple guru Jonny Ive, iOS 7 has seen the company adopt a colourful, refined appearance, with new camera features such as filers and photo collections, a refreshed notifications bar and new control centre all stealing the show.

Earlier this week much loved messaging service What’sApp was given an iOS 7 themed makeover, with the refreshed giving the app a more minimalist feel.
