OS X Yosemite Adoption Rate Reaches 12.8% in First Six Days After Release
According to the latest report from Chitika, OS X Yosemite adoption rate is a bit higher than the adoption rate of OS X Mavericks last year. After six days of being available for public, the latest version of Apple's operating system for Macs was installed on 12.8% of computers in North America. In case you don't know, last year the adoption rate of OS X Mavericks was 12.4%.
Nevertheless, such a high adoption rate is not a surprising result. You see, ahead of the public launch this fall, the adoption rate of the latest OS X beta among the developers and beta testers was 33 times higher if compared to previous releases.
OS X Yosemite has such a high adoption rate as it can boast of deeper integration with iOS 8, noticeable design tweaks and other improvements.
While Mavericks focused heavily on under-the-hood updates that improved battery life and responsiveness, OS X Yosemite brought revamped apps, Continuity, Notification Center improvements, iCloud Drive, and more. Chitika also speculates that the OS's public beta may have positively impacted its adoption numbers.
To measure the adoption rate of the new OS X version in Nothern America, Chitika experts analyzed the web traffic data gathered during a period of time between October 16th to October 22th.
