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.
