iOS 7.1 gets 17.9% adoption rate after three days
You might recall that Apple pushed out iOS 7.0.6 to close a security gap that could have allowed hackers to read email and other communication that was supposed to be encrypted. According to the data from Chitika, the number of iOS 7.0.6 users still doubles the number of iDevice users sporting iOS 7.1. The iOS 7.0.6 update had a 13.3% adoption rate just 48 hours after its release.
Apple's Car Play, formerly known as iOS in the Car, is part of the iOS 7.1 release, as is a number of bug fixes and new capabilities for Siri and the calendar. The newest build of iOS can be installed on the Apple iPhone 4 and higher, and the Apple iPad 2 and higher.
Apple's latest iOS build is found on 17.9% of North American iOS web traffic

Exactly. You took the words from my keyboard.

Report: Apple users install routine update that finally fixes long standing bugs with 64 bit safari and such.
Sheesh, if it really is so good, why not post HTC One, motox, sg4 4.4.x adaption rates?

Screw that. 7.0.6 with my JailBreak, and all updates blocked. Bad enough I have to deal with this toy phone, they're not taking away my JB too!

Then don't update. apparently you have a choice.

Yeah no kidding, hence me writing "all updates blocked." There's a Cydia tweak for it.

Wait until iOS 8 comes out then what? Why even get a phone known for it's updates. Just forget about jailbreaking and try to enjoy what Apple gives you.

Do you JailBreak?
If you did, you'd understand why I don't want to give it up. Though I complain about the small screen, the truth is that a jailbroken iPhone is one of the best devices in the world. I can customize it, widget it, and get a bunch of free stuff, like movies that are in theaters.
(I have an LG G2 as well, so I'm not just being a Fanboy, for the record)

Well offcourse,when you consider the unyfied platform that ios is.There is basicily no different hardware to be updated. But,you have to admire apple strategy,their devices have been on of the longest that are supported.My ipad 2 is rockin ios 7.1 and it works like a charm,and i expect to receive even ios 8.And the frikin device is from 2011.Unfortunately i can't say the same for my nexus 4,my worry is that it won't reach the next version of android considering how galaxy nexus turned out.
P.S. i'm talking about official updates not custom roms.

7.1 is a major update as 7.0 is laggy as f**k

They shortened the animations. It wasn't lag to begin with.
