Almost half of all iOS users are using the latest version of Apple’s mobile operating system, according to figures released by Cupertino on its App Store Distribution page.

The figures show that as of September 21, 46 percent of users had upgraded to iOS 8, slightly down from the 49 percent of users on iOS 7. A tiny minority (just 5 percent) of users are still using earlier firmware versions.

A massive 87% of iOS users are currently running some version of iOS 7 — according to the latest numbers revealed on Apple’s developer site.

Refreshing its iOS usage numbers on Monday, Apple measured usage of its most recent mobile OS for a seven‑day period ending April 6, 2014.

The figure is up from 85% at the end of March, and 83% one month ago, when Apple introduced iOS 7.1. This update added several new features such as CarPlay, and also tweaked iTunes Radio, the Touch ID fingerprint sensor, and Siri.
