Hi —, I don't have an Iphone, so could you explain to me please why you think it will take 6month-1year untill IOS users adept to IOS8 once it's released? With Android, once a new firmware is available, you get a notification, press update and that's it. Since everyone uses their phone daily, it shouldn't take more than a week, till everyone whose phone is eligible for the update has it. Since IOS8 is for Iphone 4GS and above, we should quickly see an overall upgrade rate of 75%
For android, every maker do not make an update for every devices right away, it can take months, even years in some cases.
And then the user has to update it manually, sure there is a notification, but that means the user has to bother doing it, it seems most of them just wont do it until they feel like it.
