Constructive Crittercism says iOS 8.1 adoption spiking higher


iOS 8 and 8.1’s overall crash rate is dropping while adoption of Apple’s latest OS is rising in what is a good sign for the captains of crunch.

With Apple’s iOS 8 adoption being slower than that of iOS 7 in the same time frame according to Apple’s own stats, iOS 8.x has finally moved past the 50% spot to 52%, as of October 27, 2014.

While those are Apple’s own stats, mobile applicable performance management company Crittercism has provided some of its own.

The company has shared its most recent iOS crash and adoption data, sating that, “most notably, adoption has spiked recently to 23.4%, jumping approximately 3-4% each day since last Wednesday, October 22.”

They also share that, overall, “iOS 8 performance has improved slightly in the past few days, with a current crash rate of 2.7%.

“However overall, iOS 8 is still lagging behind 8.1, which currently has a crash rate of 2.23%”.

Below is a table with data organised by date.
The data shared is based on Crittercism’s 1 billion users worldwide.
