“The majority of iOS device owners have upgraded to the latest version of the operating system, according to a new report from third-party analysts Localytics,” David Nield reports for Digital Trends.
“The final public version of Apple’s mobile OS was pushed out to the world almost exactly a month ago on September 16,” Nield reports. “Localytics says the figure stands at 55 percent, with adoption rates faster than those for iOS 8 but still way behind iOS 7. In the last two weeks, the analytics firm says, adoption has slowed significantly — perhaps indicating that a lot of users are waiting for the early bugs to get ironed out.”
Nield reports, “Localytics, which studied data from around 50 million iOS devices to come up with its figures, says adoption has been slowest in China, where only 36 percent of users have upgraded. Germany is top of the pile, with 64 percent of users in that country installing the new software (the figure for the U.S. stands at 57 percent).”
