Apple Says iOS 8 Is Now Installed on 60% of iOS Devices

Apple updated its App Store Distribution Data for developers on Wednesday, to show that 60% of iOS devices are now running iOS 8. That number is up from 55% of devices when Apple last updated the figure earlier this month.

Apple collected the adoption numbers by way of App Store visits on November 24. Even though adoption of iOS 8 has lagged behind the previous version – iOS 7 – Apple’s adoption numbers for the latest version of its mobile operating system still look great when compared to competitor Android’s numbers.

Apple hit the 60% adoption rate milestone in a little over 60 days since its release, while Android’s KitKat release took 313 days to reach an installed base of 25%. (Android’s fragmented device market, with numerous manufacturers, models, and versions, all lead to Android’s lagging adoption rate for new versions.)
