Apple released the latest version of their mobile OS, Apple iOS 8 last Wednesday, and we previously heard that iOS 8 adoption was at around 20 percent.
Now Apple has released some official figures on Apple iOS 8 adoption on their App Store Distribution page, and iOS 8 adoption is now at 46 percent.
iOS 7 adoption is now at 49 percent, and earlier versions of iOS are at 5 percent, these figures would include the new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus smartphones that went on sale last week.
Apple reported sales of 10 million new iPhone handsets yesterday, this figure beat last years launch, and also included handsets that were pre-ordered.
We can expect iOS 8 adoption to increase significantly over the next few weeks, and we are expecting it to overtake iOS 7 usage some time this week.
Apple iOS 8 comes with a wide range of new features, plus a new design, and according to Apple this is their biggest mobile OS release to date.
The launch hasn’t gone without issues though, some users have reported less than impressive performance on the iPhone 4S, and there were also issues with Apple’s Healthkit.
Apple has to pull third party HealtKit applications from the app store, after a bug was discovered in HealthKit, the company has promised to fix the issue by the end of September.
