iOS 8’s adoption right out of the door has been a bit slow. However it seems that as more users start to resign themselves to the fact that they’ll have to upgrade to get all the latest features, plus with more users getting the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, it was only natural for iOS 8’s adoption rate to climb.
Well for those who are wondering how iOS 8 is doing at the moment, they will be pleased to learn that it has finally crossed that 80% mark. To be more specific, iOS 8 is sitting at an adoption rate of 81% which is a pretty decent jump from last month where it was sitting at 75%. Based on the rate iOS 8 is being adopted by users, we wouldn’t be surprised if it manages to hit the 90% mark or beyond ahead of iOS 9’s release which should be in the later part of the year.
Like we said before iOS 8 was a bit slow to be adopted out of the door compared to iOS 7. This is because the changes made in iOS 8 weren’t as drastic compared to that of iOS 7. Not to mention many users of older iOS devices found that upgrading to iOS 8 slowed their devices down significantly.
There was also the issue of jailbreaking as at that time, a jailbreak for iOS 8 was not available yet, which is why many jailbreak users were holding off on it. That being said we have to wonder what iOS 9’s adoption will be like, and more importantly what will it bring to the table?
