iOS 4 On Half of All iPhones One Month After Release

I wasn’t under the impression that iOS 4 had penetrated so much of the iPhone world already, but according to Chitika Research, iOS 4 is running on nearly half of all the iPhones currently in consumer’s hands. As of July 15th, ten percent of current iOS 4 users have updated to 4.0.1.

AppleInsider reports,

Of the other half of iPhone users running an earlier version of iOS, nearly 60% are running the latest 3.1.3 version predating iOS 4 (29.9 percent of all iPhone users). About 20 percent of all iPhone users have not updated their devices since at least last October, according to Chitka’s data. One percent are still using 2.0. No users still using 1.0 would be running apps, and therefore would be invisible in Chitika’s analytics.

If you guys haven’t updated yet, you might want to think about grabbing the new update. I hear it’s pretty great.
