Apple is usually quick to point out great adoption rates amongst its users whenever a new update comes out. However, this time Apple may shy away from public comments as iOS 8 adoption has slowed down to a crawl.
According to the stats available directly from Apple, iOS 8 adoption currently stands a 47%, which is barely 1% more than it was a couple of weeks ago. If we look back at last years iOS 7 release we see that by this time the previous upgrade had already been installed on 60% of devices.
Of course, lest we forget and fanbois start pointing it out, Android’s own adoption rates are far from stellar, and 47% is hugely impressive compared to the 24% that KitKat is sporting. But in all fairness Android is a different beast with many more devices, form factors, models and carriers out there so a comparison between the two only gets us so far.
