First off, congrats to our very own Vic Icasas for setting a new personal record for 21K in the Rexona Run yesterday.
And since we’re on the topic of records, it appears the iPhone 5 isn’t the only hit over at Apple. According to TechCrunch and mobile analytics company Apsalar, iOS 6 crushed any record set by any of its predecessors, setting a new bar in iOS adoption with a stellar 20% adoption rate in day 2 after its release.
20% may not seem much, but that’s a jaw dropping 122% improvement from iOS 5.
Of course, the situation with iOS 6 is completely different compared to way back when iOS 5 hit the scene. Back then, hooking up your iOS device to your Mac or PC was mandatory in order to upgrade to a new iOS release. Now, thanks to iOS 5, you can freely upgrade over-the-air, which is prolly one of the main reasons for the high adoption rate.
That said, without interest, there would be no high adoption rate to speak of also. So it’s really a mix of both.
What I’m really curious to find out, though, is the satisfaction rate. There’s no report on this yet, but there are a lot of gripes and groans on Apple’s Google Maps substitute, their own Maps app powered by TomTom Navigation. But yeah, Maps is just one aspect of iOS 6, and for some, like me, an under-performing Maps app isn’t enough to give iOS 6 the thumbs down. That’s my two cents on the whole Maps issue.
And with that, let’s turn the mic to you guys – how are you liking iOS 6 so far?
