Most of the iPhones are running on iOS 6

iOS 6 running on Apple devices

Although the iOS 6 upgrade has faced a ton of ridicule from people who are disappointed with their Maps app to their WiFi connectivity problem, the iOS 6 update by Apple has been downloaded by at least 60% of iPhone owners already.

According to Chitika Insights, the majority of the iPhones are already running this newest version of the Apple operating system, while the iPad on the other hand has 45% of owners already downloading the latest update.

For the iPod Touch, only 39% are running on iOS 6. The first two versions of the device can’t be upgraded to iOS 6.

The iOS 6 update was rolled out by Apple a couple of weeks ago, and 24 hours after it became available 15% of the compatible devices are running on iOS 6.

Although the iOS 6 app has received its fair share of criticisms following the failure of their native Maps app, Tim Cook is trying to soothe the angry mob by making third party maps app available for download. The Apple CEO went as far as writing a letter to apologize for the failure.

Apple iOS 6 Maps app isn’t that bad, according to Steve Wozniak

If we ask Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak what his experience with the new Apple Maps app was, his answer would be is that it isn’t that big.

According to ZDnet Australia, Wozniak was quoted as saying, “I have been reading about the problems, and I don’t know if they are that severe.”

Though he admitted that there really is a problem with the current Maps app in the iOS 6 but he doesn’t think it is a cause for concern.

According to Wozniak, “I tried to navigate somewhere, and I couldn’t get to where I wanted to by voice (…) I don’t know yet about Maps – I’m a little worried about the navigation, but I’ve still got it covered with a bunch of other navigation apps.”

Well, if that’s the case, having additional maps really isn’t a problem. But I guess Woz does have a spare device, a Samsung Galaxy S III maybe?

The clamor behind Apple’s own Maps app have spread through the Web like wildfire. Even celebrities blamed the Maps app for getting them to work late.

Adult film actress Brooke Banner tweeted, “Dear iPhone, your new maps fu**ing suck! Once again you’ve made me late and sent me the wrong way. Get it the f**k together. Sincerely, BB.”
