As exciting as Apple’s newest operating system is, it is still hasn’t reached the fervor that it’s predecessor did at this early stage. The latest news, approximately two weeks after iOS 8 passed the halfway mark, is that the adoption rate has remained fairly steady, increasing by four percent.
I’ve noted in the past that two major factors in this slower adoption are partly due to a lack of full jailbreak support combined with the size of the download being too big. Earlier this week, Pangu released an untethered jailbreak for iPhone models all the way back to the 4s, plus all iPad devices and the iPod touch 5. Additionally, Pangu 1.1.0 includes Cydia, which is what many in the jailbreak community have been waiting for.
