According to a new report, OS X Yosemite‘s adoption rate has been far better than previous versions of OS X.
According to web analytics firm Chitika, the interest level for Yosemite from developers is quite high, and the adoption rate of the new software is pacing quite nicely for Apple. In fact, it looks like it is outpacing Mavericks by a large margin. Chitika measured OS X ad impressions from the United States and Canada, between June 2 and July 2, and saw a sharp increase from systems running OS X Yosemite following its preview availability. Yosemite, in that time frame, rose to roughly 0.15% of total Mac OS X web traffic. When compared to OS X Mavericks, it took that particular version to reach 0.05% of total Mac OS X web traffic in 30 days.
There shouldn’t be any surprise that Chitika suggests the rise in adoption could very well be due to the new features, and new look, of OS X Yosemite. Specifically, the new features that allow Mac users to work with their iOS-based devices in a seamless fashion, with Continuity and Handoff.
