Phil Schiller: There Are 300 Million iOS 6 Users
According to Apple’s SVP of Worldwide Marketing Phil Schiller, there are around 300 million iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch devices that are running on the iOS 6 operating system. iOS 6 was released only 5 months ago. This is a 100 million increase over the last 3 months.
“iOS 6 is the world’s most advanced mobile operating system, and with nearly 300 million iPhone, iPad and iPod touch devices on iOS 6 in just five months, it may be the most popular new version of an OS in history,” stated Schiller. Around 500 million iOS devices have been sold, which means that around 60% of them are on iOS 6.
Last week Apple said that they have around 250 million iCloud users. Around 75 million iOS devices were sold in Q1 2013, which came bundled with iOS 6. In the first week of availability, over 100 million Apple devices were upgraded to iOS 6.
