Apple's iOS 7 was released on September 18, and just over a month later, the company is already seeing the updated operating system running on two thirds of its mobile devices. That means there's big interest in the latest iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch operating system, which translates into better standardization across the iOS platform and less consumer support issues -- two things Google's Android OS can't boast.
