After a slow start, Apple customers are beginning to adopt the company’s new iOS 8 platform in larger numbers.

Screenshot 2014-09-23 17.00.27The US company updated its App Store Distribution page today to show that nearly half (46 percent) of users who visited the Apple Store on September 21 were using the week-old operating system.

A number of third party tracking sites found that the early numbers of iOS 8 installs were lower than that of iOS 7 at the same stage last year.
