New iOS 6.1 hits 22 percent adoption in just 36 hours
Because Apple lets users upgrade to the latest version of iOS on all compatible devices on the day its released, the adoption rate is naturally higher than on Android -- where carriers generally decide when or if a given device will receive updates on a model-by-model basis, and have a natural incentive to limit the upgradability of a device. Even so, reports that iOS 6.1 -- released on Monday -- is already installed on more than 22 percent of all compatible iOS devices represents the fastest uptake of a system update ever.
