In San Francisco today, Apple shared some numbers throughout its keynote. Just five days after the iOS 7 release, 200 million gadgets ran brand-new os. It represents a 64 percent adoption rate to this day. ‘This blows away the various other men,’ Apple CEO Tim Cook stated on stage.

As constantly, this huge adoption rate is one of Apple’s major strengths. While numerous believed that iOS 7 might be confusing to iOS 6 individuals, the adoption rate is rather just like older iOS releases. Individuals can now update over air, carriers don’t have a say and numerous older iPhones and iPads work. All those crucials make the iOS adoption rate much faster than Android or Windows Phone adoption rates.

Apple introduced a brand-new function in iTunes both on the mobile devices and on computer systems, iTunes Radio. For this attribute alone, Apple touts 20 million listeners. While 20 million listeners is much less excellent than 200 million iOS 7 individual number, numerous of these individuals were already listening to music with Pandora. We’ve no idea whether those numbers are above or below Apple’s expectations. It’s a great start, but plainly insufficient to take on Pandora.

As a pointer, iTunes Radio isn’t readily available in every country where Apple sells iPhones. Only a portion of iPhone, iPad and iTunes individuals can make use of iTunes Radio. As content deals are difficult to sign, getting iTunes Radio into everyone’s hands will be next hard action for Apple.
