Apple today announced it has sold a record-breaking nine million new iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c models, just three days after the launch of the new iPhones on September 20. In addition, more than 200 million iOS devices are now running the completely redesigned iOS 7, making it the fastest software upgrade in history.

Impressive.

This is inaccurate. If you want an update that is tied to the latest version of iOS you obviously have to update. However Apple just changed the way the store works so it will now let you choose the last compatible version so now you still have access to a 100k worth of apps even if you don't upgrade.

In my defense, it was third party information; I thought that was obvious. I sold my iPhone before iOS 7 was released and was going by what my sister said.

However Apple just changed the way the store works


That's a bit ambiguous; did they "just change it" in the past day or so, or did they change it with the release of iOS 7? If the former, then it's quite possible my sis did encounter a situation where she wasn't allowed to download an app without taking the update first, and my anecdote has merit. If the latter, then it's possible she just assumed she had to update the OS first. I'll have to ask her next time I see her.
