iDownload Blog reports today that new figures from Apple’s App Store Distribution support page show that 68% of iOS devices are now running iOS 8. This represents an increase of 4% from the last figures published on December 22 last year.
Correspondingly, the iOS 7 adoption rate has fallen by 3%, and is now at just 29% of the install base. Even earlier versions of iOS are at 4%.
As iDownload Blog points out, the numbers quoted by Apple actually come to 101%, so someone at the company has got their figures a little wrong, but the general impression is correct, however!
Analytics company Mixpanel has also published very similar figures to Apple’s own data, saying that iOS 8 adoption is now at 69.93% of iOS devices, iO7 at 27.86%, and earlier version at 2.21%. The slight difference in Mixpanel’s and Apple’s figures is most likely due to the fact that Mixpanel’s data is in real time and Apple’s figures are from one day previous.
