Apple’s iOS 8 has been available for almost three weeks, and it would appear that the adoption of Apple’s latest mobile operating system is slowing down.
Just a week after Apple iOS 8 was released, adoption of the new mobile OS had reached 46 percent, and Apple has now updated it App Store support page for developers with its latest figures.
The latest figures now show that iOS 8 adoption has reached 47 percent, this is an increase of just 1 percent in the last two weeks, and the slower adoption rates could be down to the various issues that have been reported with iOS 8.
When Apple iOS 8 was launched, there were various bugs reported, one was to do with Apple’s HealthKit, which lead to all HealthKit apps being pulled from the app store.
Apple then released iOS 8.0.1, this brought some new issues, with users reporting problems with TouchID and also cellular service, the update was quickly pulled by Apple.
The company then released iOS 8.0.2 which fixed the previous issues, but with all these problems appearing in iOS 8 and iOS, this has probably contributed to the slow down in people updating to iOS 8.
We are expecting Apple iOS 8.1 to be released later this month, it is expected to launch with the new iPad Air 2 and also the iPad Mini 3.
