Apple "Looking at the stats for all our apps (we have 4 universal apps with almost 3 million downloads) and for all versions after a month gives an interesting picture." Close to 70% is on iOS 6 already. In the meantime, Sony just announced it's going to leave loads of users in the cold by not upgrading their phones to Jelly Bean. Those that do have an update in the pipeline will have to wait until next year.

There are rumors swirling that Google is partnering with LG, HTC, Samsung and Sony are about to unleash new nexus smart phones. I think the idea is to push stock android on more devices that can be updated more frequently than what the manufacturers can do right now.

Also, with that being said, I think the IOS 6 numbers are expected to be low as people hold off on the upgrade until they know maps is okay. I navigated with a friend using ios 6 maps last weekend. It worked fine. I imagine it would for any non major city goer who doesn't need public transportation routing, if they're still in a populated area.


The maps have been ok... but it is not very good at finding things by topic. If you have an address you will probably be ok. However, It did tell my friend that his destination was an onramp in florida... but he was close enough that he got where he was going in the end.

I miss the the public transportation maps... the modules I have tried are not as good as Googles. You can get walking instructions out of apples maps... but the UI did not make it obvious at first.
