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.

You "long" for Apple to publish data? Seriously? Apple usually does provide an update at their events. iOS 6 has been available for 30 days. They have an event in a little more than 3 days. Your LONGING shall soon be satiated in all likelihood.

Apple does not provide iOS version shares on the global market. They only publish partial numbers (e.g. US market only) when it suits their presentation.

Apple has nothing comparable to the Google Android Dashboard.

Apple does provide worldwide OS upgrade data.

Apple doesn't need a dashboard to inform developers what small sliver of a % of potential users may or may not be able to use their apps. iOS developers KNOW that within days of release 50%+ of the entire population of active iOS users will be using the latest software.
