    That’s pretty cool, but the adoption rate almost seems to have come to a halt. Any idea as to why this has happened ? 57% (60% now) is nice but considering this is Apple we are talking about, I really thought they would be at 75%-80% by now, especially considering the iOS 9.0 update is only 1.3 GB…

    If you have a 5s or 5c don’t update! Ever since iOS 9 my phones have been glitchy and not working right. Wifi doesn’t connect as well, Siri comes on w/e I hit the home button and runs like crap overall. They always do this each year. If you don’t update to new phone they screw you w their new iOS #. Next time I’ll just stay on the old one…48% of ppl got it right still at least.
