A company that serves up advertisements for thousands of Apple mobile apps has seen a 29% jump in the number of devices running iOS 6 since the release of Google Maps for the iPhone.
As you may recall, iPhone users that updated their devices to the iOS 6 operating system in September were stuck with an Apple Maps app rather than Google Maps, which came with previous versions of the iOS. Many complained that Apple's map app was inferior to Google's, leading to an apology from Apple's CEO Tim Cook.
Because of the map fiasco, a number of iPhone users refused to upgrade to the iOS 6 and instead kept the older iOS 5 that had Google Maps as a pre-installed app.
Last week, Google released Google Maps for the iPhone, and that appears to have spurred those holding out to finally upgrade to iOS 6.
