Apple today updated its iOS adoption numbers, as measured by usage of its App Store and presented on the support page for developers. iOS 7 has now hit the 85 percent mark while iOS 6 has slipped to 12 percent.

It appears Apple is currently including iOS 7.1 in the iOS 7 category, so unfortunately we don’t have official numbers on how the latest version of the company’s mobile operating system is being adopted. Apple first reported iOS numbers based on App Store usage on December 1, 2013, when 74 percent of users were on iOS 7, 22 percent were on iOS 6, and 4 percent were on earlier versions.
