No it didn't, they both round to 48 percent, as far as whole numbers are concerned they're exactly the same at the moment.

Edit: Actually in the day view it has, but I'm not sure 50% is worth mentioning.

That link wont load for me for some reason, but do those figures count iphone 6/6+ seperate? Does it break it down to how many users of iPhone 5S and older that can support iOS 8 are using iOS 8?

How many of those adoptions of iOS8 are from people wanting to upgrade their hardware and iOS 8 is what you get with it?
Just total users. As of now, 48.17% are on iOS 8, 47.99% are on iOS 7, and the rest are on other.

I went to iOS 8 but wish I could go back to iOS 7.

Using safari on iOS 8 is a very frustrating experience.

I second that. It's annoying that tabs have to refresh so much. Even chrome doesn't do that as much. Also when chrome refreshes it loads them from cache, saving mobile data

I have two lines, one running 4.2.6 and although I can't jailbreak it, I like how buttery smooth this firmware is.

I'm so typical and average on all other life fronts, it's nice to be categorized in the less than 1% via Apple.

The adoption is purely inhibited by the large number of update. Many of us are not knowing that we can also update it via iTunes incase we don't want to delete the videos and images to free up the space.

I would like to see the numbers of people who want to go back to iOS 7 and cannot. Then redo the percentages. Bet it's more like 60 / 40 in 7s favour.

Even people buying the 6\6+ seem to want 7. lol

Why I pay no attention to these bogus adoption rates.

They were lingering around 25-30% until they stopped signing 7.

Or the people who want to go back to IOS 6 or IOS 5 or IOS 4. I can understand Apple does not want to be the Microsoft of mobile OS systems, which is why they stop signing old releases.

I haven't heard the IOS 8 adopters out in the real world wishing for IOS 7. Different circles I guess, which is why the adoption rates are an interesting metric.

My real word experience is that I adopted iOS 8, and I regret it every time I use my 5s. Even more so after I use my iPad 4 which is still cruising on 7.1.2

I guess those complaining on the forums are in "Mr. Roger's Land of Make Believe"

To be fair , i remember a lot of iOS 7 users wanting to go back to iOS 6 at this point last year. But i do think Apple should support the 2 most recent versions of iOS and let the user choose to go back while its still supported if they wish.

Not make believe, maybe in the vocal complaining minority. I love my 5s on IOS 8 and my iPad 2 is faster on 8.0.2 then 7.1.2.

So yeah, different strokes for different folks.

I know this may be completely unrelated in some way, but have any of you guys running the latest iOS received error messages when attempting to send an iMessage to someone?

My girlfriend updated her phone but I'm still running 7.1.2 Now when she attempts to send me an iMessage, she receiving errors. However, I'm still able to text her with no problem.

Is there some sort of compatibility issue between the two? And if so, why would Apple force me to upgrade?

I receive iMessages from friends on 7.1.2. There is no compatibility issue between the two. You may want to log out of imessage then log back in and check the locations that you can receive immesages at.

Did you do your updates via iTunes or OTA?

I also have the 5s and an iPad 2 and have been loathing the thought of even trying to update for fear my device performance is going to feel like I downloaded a new "molasses" app that makes everything operate in slow motion.

I wonder if new iPhone 6 users skew the update numbers. While adoption rate is climbing, it could be just because there are more and more iPhone 6 users everyday. It seems most people that didn't update to iOS 8 initially don't really have plans to (mostly due to the fact that the OTA will not install for most people since it requires so much space).
