Apple has revealed that 80 percent of all its devices are now using the iOS 7 operating system, less than six months since it was released to the market.
Apple revealed the numbers on a developer page with the latest stats (pictured) showing that four-fifths of all devices, including iPhones and iPads, are using the operating system.
This means there are now just 17 percent of users left on the older iOS 6 operating system and an even lower three percent on older versions of the platform.
The huge user base on the latest version of iOS underlines the success Apple has had in making sure the vast majority of devices in the market are updated to its newest system. This stands in stark contrast to Android, which is well known for widespread fragmentation.
But many users are not impressed with iOS 7, with numerous complaints pouring in from V3 readers, not least about the fact that iOS 7 has rendered many older iPhones almost unusable by drastically slowing down performance.
Apple has released several updates to iOS 7 since it was first launched to try and counter some of the major issues, and is no doubt busy preparing for its next overhaul to the platform in time for the next iPhone launch, expected in September.
Last week Apple won a major patent case against Samsung, relating to its autocorrect typing technology used on the iOS platform, as the company strives to protect the technology used in its popular system.
