In one of the fastest expansion of operating system, the most recent roundup of Apple App Store measurement of December 01, 2013 concluded that the latest iOS is currently running on 74% of the iPads and iPhones, while 22% and 4% of the rest of the iDevices are respectively run on iOS6 or versions earlier than that.
However, the reason behind some of the Apple devices to be still running on the older operating systems were, their technology cannot uphold the latest OS and cannot be upgraded either; as a result, even the original iPad is still running the iOS5. Similarly, the iPhones marketed prior to iPhone 4 also cannot embrace the iOS7 due to the same technological limitations.
But even without one third of the Apple devices left without the latest version of iOS, the operating system had been quick in getting installed in more than 50% of iPads and iPhones within the first week of its release on September this year. The overhaul, which is the biggest of its kind since the introduction of App Store in 2008; the enthusiasm amongst the iPhone users might be credited to the significant change in design of the latest OS.
