Earlier on Monday we told you that iOS 6.0.1 will soon be making its way across the iOS ecosystem, bringing bug fixes to Apple's mobile device users. Which brings up a good question. After just one day, iOS 6 accounted for more than 15% of iOS device web traffic in the U.S. and Canada. So where does iOS 6 stand now, a mount after its release, in terms of adoption? According to the data generated by ad network Chikita and looked over by ts research arm, Chitika Insights, 60% of iDevices in the U.S. and Canada are now using the latest and greatest of Apple's mobile OS.

The adoption rate soared 10% higher since October 2nd, but has slowed down since. 'It is expected to soar higher again once Apple launches the Apple iPad mini, which will be introduced tomorrow. The 7.85 inch tablet will be loaded with iOS 6 which can only increase the rate. Chikita sees the rate moving up to the 70% level following the smaller tablet's release.

According to Chikita, iOS 5.1 still is found on a quarter of iOS devices in North America with 4% using iOS 5 and 9% still holding on to iOS 4.
