According to reports, 24 percent of iPhone users adopted the updated software in less than one day. Around 20 percent iPad owners installed iOS 6.1 within 20 hours. The iOS 5 adoption rate was comparatively slower with 44 percent of users updating to the software in one week.

The adoption rate figures come from OnSwipe (via TechCrunch), which gathered data from over 13 million iOS users. OnSwipe further reveals that adoption of iOS 6.1 rose quickly, from 11.35 percent within the first 24 hours, to 16.92 percent on Jan. 31 morning, and up to 21.81 percent as of 3 PM ET on Jan.31.

iOS 6.1 is compatible with iPhone 5, iPhone 4S, iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPad (third- and fourth-generation), iPad mini, iPad 2, and iPod touch (fourth- and fifth-generation); however, some features of the iOS 6.1 may not be available on all iDevices.

The update brings 4G LTE capabilities to 36 additional iPhone carriers and 23 additional iPad carriers, and the option to book cinema tickets in the US using Siri. The update also brings improvements to Apple Maps and an all new lock screen music controls.

The swift adoption rate within 36 hours of release indicates the warm reception iOS 6.1 has received. We will have to wait and see how quickly other iDevice owners start updating their devices to the latest iOS 6.1.

If you have an iDevice, have you received the iOS 6.1 update?
