The new update also improved iOS 7 performance on iPhone 4 by providing more stability and accessibility improvements.
There are still 11 percent devices that are running iOS 6 and 3 percent devices that are running earlier versions of iOS. The new stats were displayed on Apple’s site in order to gear up towards the annual World Wide Developers Conference that is scheduled to be held in June.
