iOS 8 Adoption Rate Isn’t As Big As Past Versions

It’s been almost three weeks since Apple first released iOS 8. Since then, fewer have updated to the newest iOS version compared to past releases. Through its 19 days since its release, the iOS 8 adoption rate stands at 37.45 percent. Over the same period of time, adoption rates for iOS 7 and iOS 6 stood at 57.98 percent and 57.37 percent. At the same time, 52.8 percent of users still remain on iOS 7, compared to the 37.4 percent who are using iOS 8. The reason for the slow iOS 8 adoption rate is unknown, although one can guess. It could do with the issues users have experience when updating to iOS 8.0.1 or 8.0.2 with Touch ID not working, iPhone 6 users not having service when updating or random resets of deceives while using an app along with other issues. Its rumored that iOS 8.1 could launch in the coming weeks, hopefully with the update all of iOS 8’s problems will be fixed.
