iOS 8 Adoption April 27 2015Apple’s newest distribution numbers show that 81 % of iOS devices are now running iOS 8 or later, a lot less compared to one week after the launch of the Apple Watch. 17 % of devices used to access the App Store proceed to run iOS 7 and the remaining 2 % are running an earlier software application version.

iOS 8 adoption rose 2 percent levels considering that Apple shared its last distribution numbers earlier this month, with the Apple Watch launch last Friday likely adding to the marginal boost. Apple Watch should be coupleded with an iPhone 5 or later on running iOS 8.2 or newer.

According to mobile analytics firm Mixpanel, roughly 91 % of devices were running iOS 7 right now in 2013, meaning that iOS 8 adoption proceeds to be slower, likely because of a vast array of factors including software program bugs and excessive storage room needed to install updates.
