CUPERTINO, Calif. — Apple’s iOS operating system for iPhones, iPads and iPod Touches, grabbed more than 60 percent of the mobile/tablet traffic in October.

According to findings by Net Applications, iOS accounted for 61.64 percent of mobile web traffic last month, which was up from nearly 55 percent in September and 44 percent in October of 2010.

Android came in second place with almost 19 percent of mobile web traffic, most of which came from smartphones rather than tablets.

The release of iOS 5 and the iPhone 4S in October were two events that caused a spike of Internet traffic in several countries.
