1) Are there still any concern trolls left saying they (and everyone they know) is refusing to update to iOS 7?
2) I'd wager that remaining ?10% is from almost entirely from perfectly, but older devices that aren't able to be upgraded the 7th generation of iOS.

I'm happy with iOS 6 on my iPhone 5. Works great, just like the day I got it.
The look isn't really all that different. It took me a couple of days to get used to it, and the new features are definitely worth it. The holdouts are a tiny minority, and soon they'll be even further left behind, when iOS 8 comes out.

Look at this damn mess. How many percent are on the latest 4.2, I can't make it out exactly from this chart, but it looks like 4 or 5 percent. How ridiculous.

KitKat is a .x release. If you look at version 4.x or higher, the adoption rate is pretty high at just over 85%.
Hi, I am probably one of those trolls that do not hail iOS7. Things under hood are great and iOS8 is fantastic but interface is horrid for me. And what it did with iPhone 4 is disaster. Waiting and waiting so many times to move on. Hope iOS 8 on 4s wont be that same experience.
I saw how people unfamiliar with iOS were not able to unlock iOS 7 screen something unthinkable on iOS 6. Several GUI tweaks and updates of iOS 7 speak for itself.
And not sure it is just iOS 7 problem, but I had to restore iPhone several times because iOS 7 can not simply restart iPhone that is filled up. It just fall in rebooting cycle. It is far from perfection.
As of statistic. If it should be really showing user preferences and usage patterns there have to be ability to easily switch back to iOS 6 and if it would show separately hw that support it and old hw that do not.
And last, I think Apple crippled platform by using half the needed RAM on iPhones from 3G and up 5 and small batteries that could not feed more RAM. Look ant pools what people want most. Better battery life and often more RAM to data of background apps were kept when you swith back to them and not reloaded.
I lost several unfinished emails triggered from other apps just because I moved from that app to other and back.
And you may not be surprised I am sitting in work in front of Dell C2D PC that cost me 200 USD with LCD and PC table few years back running XP do everything I need. I would like to have mac here but it is not reasonable nor cost effective.
iPhone 4s & iPad 4G 128GB and happy being on iOS6 with both devices... that dip in iOS6 install base could be easily just shrinking overall share of iOS6 to total base as new devices come only with iOS7. In absolute figures iOS6 users didn't have any reason to move, no new features were added in iOS7, just bug and performance fixes. I'd be surprised if someone bothered to normalise those figures before releasing them - my guess is they didn't.
That being said, I'm waiting for iOS8 to arrive and then maybe jump ship, mostly due to Continuity, would love Airdrop too, but that won't work on iPhone 4s... but I despise flat UI from the bottom of my heart, I always liked Aqua-like interfaces. I agree that Forstall pushed the leather design too far, but I love the glass icon look and easy to spot buttons in apps.
One key reason is that the updates are free.
Yeah, you don’t comprehend anything here.
Same for Android. Any other ideas?
Could be, but isn’t, because that’s complete nonsense.
Keep your disgusting, pathetic lies to yourself.
The obvious has been stated numerous times in this thread, but yeah, it is because major OS X updates are free. Microsoft has not figured out yet that consumers do not expect to pay $120-200 for upgrading their operating system anymore.

another internet troll besotted with his own righteousness that has nothing substantial to say, but badmouth people who happen to have a different opinion... let me look for that 'report to moderators' button, hope it's not in iOS7 style
Yep, you certainly act like one. PEOPLE DON’T STAY ON IOS 6 BECAUSE THEY WANT TO.
If you had any substantiation for your claims, you would have posted it. I am calling out your lack of substantiation. Get over it or post it.
I’d love to see you prove that iOS 7 had no new features. That’s a riot, kid.
Continuity is new, Airdrop that actually works between Mac and iOS device is new.... but I'm happy with what I have. Why is it so difficult to comprehend that there are people who choose not to upgrade??
Because it’s 96% satisfaction. Kind of interesting that no other OS even comes close, don’t you think?
Thanks for the anecdote; it’s meaningless.
You feel incorrectly.
You weren’t. Shut up and go away.
So... WHAT bugs?
Yes, shut up and go away.
I did choose not to upgrade. You can argue yourself to death but I didn't see anything in iOS7 that would add functionality to what I use my devices for.
