The number of devices updating to iOS 8 has slowed, according to figures from Apple revealing that the proportion of iPhones and iPads on the new OS is now at 47 percent, a rise of just one percent.
There was a huge rush to iOS 8 when it was first released, with 46 percent of iPhone and iPad owners updating to the new version of the platform.
However, since then there have been numerous problems with the software. Apple was forced to pull the first update after it blocked phones from making calls. It has since issued a new update, iOS 8.0.2, to address this and other problems.
Despite this, it seems that many users on iOS 7 are reluctant to update, perhaps put off by these issues or unconvinced that there are many new features worth updating for.
Meanwhile, the number of devices left on older versions of the platform is now at just six percent. This will no doubt include some iPhone 4 owners put off moving to iOS 7 by numerous reports in 2013 warning that it slowed down these devices.
Despite teething problems, iOS 8 does have some key enterprise features including improved password security, S/MIME features and VIP threads, support for Microsoft Exchange out-of-office replies and OS X Continuity.
Continuity offers a variety of synchronisation features, one of the most useful being the ability to AirDrop files between the iOS and Mac OS devices.
IOS 8 also adds HealthKit and HomeKit services. HealthKit can track calorie intake and exercise routines, while HomeKit is an Internet of Things-focused service designed to let users control household devices using their iPhone.
