IPhone 6 Popularity Skyrockets, IOS 8 Adoption Is Sluggish

How poor were the problems with iOS 8.0.1? Perhaps as poor as the iOS 5 rollout, when many people downloaded the hefty 800Mega Bytes (MB) update only to find out it won't install (failing with an unhelpful "error 3200"). And they had to utilize an updated iTunes to create things even more frustrating.

iOS 6 and 7 reached 50% adoption in a small over a week after they launched. Meanwhile iOS 8 is staying closer to the iOS 5 trajectory and is currently under 40% nearly three weeks after its introduction. Of course, the iOS 8.0.1 problems saw many people hrecent off on updating but 8.0.2 has fixed that. Maybe people decided to wait a bit more in case recent problems are revealed.

The adoption of the recent iPhones is very polarizing. One the one hand the iPhone 6 shot up, crossing the 2% imprint in just five days, while previous models took as long as twenty days. On the other hand the gigantic iPhone 6 Plus is

staying close to iPhone 5c adoption rates. Of course, the 5.5" iPhone is suffering from availability issues, which undoubtedly contribute to the sluggish sales.

Of course, those are relative numbers and there are more iPhones out there now than when the iPhone 5c launched. Still, it shows that Apple users have limits on how much of a classy screen bump they'll tolerate.
