iOS 8 Adoption Rate Reaches 68% - Apple
According to what the guys from Cupertino have recently posted on their Support page for developers, iOS 8 is now installed on 68% of active devices. Such a figure shows that over the last month, the number of iOS 8 users has grown 5%. As to the reasons for such growth, they include immense popularity of Apple’s iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus as well as strong smartphone and tablet sales during the holiday period of 2014.
Since launching in September alongside the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, iOS 8 has seen its adoption rate grow to 68 percent of compatible iOS devices, according to new numbers posted on the Apple Developer Support page.
Over the longer term, installation numbers are up 5 percentage points over the past month and up 12 percentage points in the past two months.
Despite the high iOS 8 adoption rate, there are still many people who continue to utilize iOS 7 or even older versions of Apple’s mobile operating system. In particular, 29% of iPhone and iPad owners haven’t yet upgraded from iOS 7 and as many as 4% use devices running iOS 6 or lower.
