iOS 9 breaks records with 50% adoption in just 5 days


iOS 9 has only been out since last Wednesday, but already it’s smashing records — being named the fastest case of iOS adoption in history, with more than 50 percent of devices already using iOS 9.

The super-speedy adoption for iOS 9 is even more impressive considering the problematic time many users had downloading it. Large numbers reported receiving “Software Update Failed” error messages after Apple’s servers were overwhelmed by demand.

OS 9 is already on pace to be downloaded by more users than any other software release in Apple’s history, marketing chief Phil Schiller said in a press release. The company’s figures are based on access to the App Store as of Saturday, Sept. 19.
