iOS 7 Adoption Rate is Slower than iOS 6

Although the new and spanking iOS 7 saw a growth rate of 185% on a daily basis for the first week of its launch, it is nothing in comparison to the by now jaded iOS 6. When the iOS 6 came out in former times, it garnered a growth ratio of 264%. But why this discrepancy you might ask

The reason is obvious. The radically changed nature of the latest iOS along with the colorful reviews it got confused people regarding whether they ought to adopt it or not. It was more like an idea whose time had not yet come. If the average user had some trepidation concerning its usage, it was not his or her fault. The iOS 7 was a class apart and hence an alien entity. 

While there are many faddists who go for everything new on the face of the planet, most consumers take their time and exercise their choice more wisely. This seems to have been the phenomenon that occurred in case of the iOS 7. 

Though the iOS 7 is now installed on at least a quarter of the devices, its adoption rate is still lagging behind iOS 6. The science behind the statistics speaks for itself. Optimum change is always welcome. Too much too soon is often rejected out of hand by most people though.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
