On Apple’s developer support page for the app store, the company has posted that 52 percent of iPhones visiting the App Store have iOS 8 installed.

The graph also shows that iOS 7 now resides on 43 percent of phones hitting the App Store as of October 27. The last five percent is everything else.

iOS 8 adoption numbers had seemed to have stalled after the initial launch. Jon Gruber and others believe that has to do with the size of the OS (which was a whopping 5GB) being the largest roadblock to upgrading.
