Apple released iOS 6.1 yesterday, adding LTE to around 36 additional iPhone carriers and 23 additional iPad carriers around the world. If you’re wondering how many iPhone, iPad, and iPod users downloaded iOS 6 since its launch in July, Apple has some numbers for you. Via press release, Apple says that nearly 300 million iDevices have been upgraded to iOS 6. Apple’s Senior Vice President of Worldwide Marketing, Philip Schiller, confirmed the milestone today saying, “iOS 6 is the world’s most advanced mobile operating system, and with nearly 300 million iPhone, iPad and iPod touch devices on iOS 6 in just five months, it may be the most popular new version of an OS in history.” Schiller adds, “iOS 6.1 brings LTE support to more markets around the world, so even more users can enjoy ultrafast Safari browsing, FaceTime video calls, iCloud services, and iTunes and App Store downloads.” Well done Apple.
