The rapid deployment of iOS 6

Apple has released another version of the iOS and again it amazes me how quickly the adoption rate of the OS is. You have to hand it to apple removing the carriers from the equation makes it so much easier to hand out new version of the OS without interference. I can’t claim this is a large sample size, but in the last 7 days, nearly 50% of the people who use my RainRadarAU have upgraded to iOS 6. That’s pretty impressive when you think about it.

Here is a pretty graph to show you what I mean:

As you can see at the start of the week nearly 90% were using 5.1.1 the latest iOS release. Then as iOS 6 was released on Wednesday night it quickly ramped up, to today where it’s nearly at 50%. Not bad for a phone that your parents can use 🙂

For those wondering the stats are generated using Splunk and the UserAgent strings on my web server where my app checks for new radars, the http queries are uniqued the best I can to only show one device per iOS Version.
