At its October event, Apple compared its adoption rate of its latest mobile OS to Android's, noting that iOS 8 was installed on 48 percent of devices in just 26 days compared to Android's adoption rate of KitKat, which was present on about a quarter of devices; the difference was that it took Android nearly a whole year to get to the 25 percent mark.
