Submission + - Most Apple users avoiding iOS 6 upgrade ( 2

Velcroman1 writes: More than 100 million users have upgraded to the new iOS 6, the software powering the company’s iGizmos, Apple said last week. But according to analysts at data research firm Strategy Analytics, 173 million iPhone users, 85 million iPad users, and 25 million iPod touch users are eligible for the upgrade — -- 283 million in all. Which means 183 million have said “no thanks.” Consumers may be skipping the upgrade for a range of reasons, explained Ross Rubin, principal analyst with Reticle Research. “They could be in contract for a phone that can't update to iOS 6 or have a model that can't take advantage of some key features and therefore choose to hold off,” he told “Or they could have heard of the problems with the Maps application and choose to hold off until it improves.”
