A company that monitors app performance for major app makers, says that 80% of iOS users are likely to switch to iOS 7 by December. With developers a lock to follow suit, older versions of their apps are likely to be neglected.
So says Crittercism, a company which handles app performance management for many major app makers, including LinkedIn, Netflix, and Pinterest.
As iOS developers focus energy and resources on building the new version of their apps, they are less likely to update old versions to fix performance issues.
That means older versions of iOS apps are crashing more often. Between January and August, Crittercism found that crash rates on iOS 6 and iOS 6.0.1 went up dramatically -- by 85% and 74% respectively.
