Apple has updated its App Store support pages for developers with a new graphic showing iOS 7 at 90% adoption, according to the company’s data on devices accessing the App Store.

iOS 8 is just around the corner, but it seems some iOS users are still only just making the jump from iOS 6.x software to iOS 7.x software. The increase to 90% adoption represents a 3% jump from a previous report a few months ago where iOS 7 adoption was pegged at 87%.

Here is the graphic from Apple’s developer pages:

As revealed at WWDC in June, the new version of iOS brings with it a number of new features and improvements such as new Health app, improved Spotlight functionality, interactive notifications, new messaging capabilities, app extensibility, and continuity features between iOS and OS X on the Mac.
