iOS 6 criticism doesn’t deter users
Since iOS 6 became available we’ve been keeping readers informed with plenty of news about it, and although most of the pre-release publicity about the new OS was very positive, on release there has been some harsh criticism about the upgrade. Many feel that the new iOS is a bit of a mess, so you might imagine that on hearing all of this widely reported news, many people would be put off downloading iOS 6, choosing instead to stick with iOS 5.
However, it seems that all the criticism hasn’t deterred users from upgrading to it, in fact far from it. In fact as more negative news has come out the adoption rate by iPhone, iPad and iPod touch users has still risen quickly. Released analysis shows that after the first two days of iOS 6 being released, the adoption rate was up to 20% from a 5% adoption rate after day one, and this proves that iOS 6 is being taken up more than twice as quickly as iOS 5 was over the same period.
Do the figures above reflect your own experience? Have you been deterred from downloading iOS 6 because of all the criticism, or did you update quickly regardless? Are your initial impressions of the latest operating system positive or negative? Let us know with your comments.
