According to App Store distribution metrics provided by Apple, the adoption rate of iOS 8 by iPhone, iPad and iPod touch users has stalled, climbing only 1 percent in the weeks since launch. iOS 8 adoption currently sits at 47 percent, up from 46 percent reported on September 21. In contrast, iOS 7 grew steadily, climbing to 58 percent in one week and reaching 74 percent in just a few months.
Though iOS 8 offers notable improvements such as notification widgets and third-party keyboards, iOS device owners may be choosing to pass on the update due to compatibility issues with their handset. iOS 8 dropped support for the iPhone 4 and reportedly performs sluggishly on the iPhone 4s. The large install files required for the iOS 8 update also may have thwarted owners who wanted to use iOS 8, but lacked the available space to proceed with the install.
