My girlfriend has a iphone 4 and she still hasn't updated her phone. I guess it just depends on the person. If people's idevices are working fine, i doubt they really care about a software update. My boss on the other updated his iphone 4 the day ios 5 came out, then ordered his iphone 4s. So it just depends on the person.
You make a good point LLeCompte... I mean I'm the kind of guy who can't be bothered to update once a month... Though updates are good for keeping your phone secure and for the new features that usually come with these updates... It doesn't matter if it's the iPhone or the iPad, updates are updates...
The same graph could somewhat apply to users of non-Apple devices. I mean the world of Apple is pretty big but there is a sizeable ecosystem out there just waiting to be tapped.

iPod users don't care as long as it still works lol. There really isn't a point in updating it when all they use it for is music and games.
still on ios4 here. but i jailbroke so i already have most of the added features (plus some beast others not in ios5). I don't feel like nuking my phone (app wise) to not really upgrade.
now if i didnt jailbreak, then i'd be all over it.

I have an iPod as well as an iPad 2, I haven't bitten the bullet yet either. It just takes too long to update iOS devices especially when you take into acct the sync and backup process before hand, and the syncing afterwards. I haven't found a real need to go through with the hassle yet.

"It took me a long , long time before I decide to upgrade to Sp1 on Vista, and I don't feel compelled to upgrade to Sp2. When it comes to the OS, I think its common that people feel vulnerable into upgrading cause you always, always anticipate that something bad might happen along the way and risk losing everything. So I would fall in the category of the remaining 62%, unless its super vital to do so."
