Tim Cook is getting ready to introduce the latest version of iOS, and he just announced that the company has sold over 600 million iOS devices since the first iPhone launched back in 2007. Of course, that trails the 900 million Android activations that Google announced back at I/O in May. But Cook says the sales numbers aren't as important to him as customer satisfaction rates — and noted that iOS devices have won nine consecutive JD Power awards. As for the iOS 6 adoption rate, a whopping 93 percent of iOS devices run the most recent version of Apple's mobile OS, and Cook took the time to point out how Android lags far beyond that.
