为什么更新iOS 8的人越来越少

JP Mangalindan 2014年10月09日

在9月17日iOS8发布后不到一周,苹果曾宣称,用户下载更新率达到46%。但是截至本周,这一数字仅增加了1%。这与去年同期iOS 7发布时70%的下载率形成了鲜明对比。

    苹果(Apple)设备用户下载最新移动操作系统iOS 8的速度正在放缓,明显不敌前几个版本,这显示出对于新系统首发时出现的程序漏洞,用户似乎仍然心有余悸。

    周二,科技巨头苹果公司在其开发者网站上发布了一组最新数据。数据显示,自iOS 8操作系统于9月17日高调发布以来,所有的苹果移动设备中仅有47%已在运行新版系统。这与去年iOS 7发布时的盛况形成了鲜明对比——根据数据分析服务商Mixpanel的统计,同样是在发布后两周半的时间里内,iOS 7的用户下载率达到了70%。

    用户对苹果最新移动操作系统反应谨慎,原因很可能出在iOS 8的漏洞重重上。在名为iOS 8.0.1的小幅更新版本推出后,很多用户反映,更新后通话和网络功能受到影响,苹果的指纹识别技术Touch ID也无法使用,这使得iOS 8.0.1一下子处于风口浪尖。苹果对此迅速作出反应,立刻从应用商店下架了新版系统,并修复了漏洞,在一天半之后发布了修订版供用户下载。

    新版系统的问题对苹果而言无疑是一次沉重的打击,该公司本欲借新款智能手机iPhone 6 和 iPhone 6 Plus发布之际,向用户隆重推出这款新的操作系统,没想到最后却演变成了一场公关危机。

    显然,早期升级用户所遇到的问题让相当一部分的iOS用户顾虑重重,不敢贸然更新从苹果提供的数据中不难看出这一点:新版系统发布后不到一周,苹果就曾宣称,所有的iPhone、iPad和 iPod设备中,运行iOS 8系统的用户比例占到46%。但是截至本周,这一数字仅增加了1%。(财富中文网)

    Apple device owners are slower to download iOS 8, the latest mobile software update, than previous updates, indicating that they may be scared off by a buggy and embarrassing launch.

    On Tuesday, the tech giant revealed new data on its developer support web site indicating that 47% of all Apple mobile devices currently run iOS 8, which was released on Sept. 17 to much fanfare. That’s compared with iOS 7, which was downloaded by 70% of user during the same two and a half week period last year according to the data analytics service Mixpanel.

    The likely reason behind slower adoption of Apple’s latest mobile software has to do with iOS 8 itself. A small, incremental software update to iOS 8, dubbed iOS 8.0.1, quickly made headlines after many users complained that it disabled cell and data service, as well as Apple’s fingerprint-recognition technology, Touch ID. Apple quickly pulled the update from its app store, fixed the bug and made it publicly available a day-and-a-half later.

    The problems with the update marked a major stumble for Apple, which had hoped to showcase the new operating system while selling the latest versions of its smartphone, the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. Instead, it turned into a public relations nightmare.

    It’s clear a significant number of iOS users remain wary about suffering the same kind of glitches that some early adopters did. Case in point: Less than a week after its release, Apple reported that iOS 8 was running on 46% of all iPhones, iPads and iPods. But as of this week, that figure saw a mere 1% uptick.
