Upgrades to Apple's iOS 6 have increased by 29 per cent after Google Maps were made available on the operating system, it has been claimed.

Mobile advertising service MoPub said that adoption of iOS 6 increased by around 13 per cent last week, but there was a bigger increase at the weekend.

MoPub monitors 12,000 iOS apps and said that the percentage of users running those apps on iOS 6 increased by 29 per cent in the five days after Google released Google Maps for iPhone, the Telegraph reports.

According to the paper, Google had provided the default maps application for Apple's iPhone since the device first went on sale in 2007.

However, the release of iOS 6 in September saw Apple replace Google Maps with its own maps app.

But Apple Maps was quickly revealed to be unreliable, filled with errors and omissions.
