All I keep reading about are music-related features that I don't give a stuff about. Have any of the bugs in the o/s been fixed? Is Safari any good on data-heavy websites yet? Have the Springboard crashes stopped? Do the Calendar reminders stay on the screen until you clear them, rather than disappearing without any user interaction 75% of the time? Etc...

I experienced a bug with there being a delay between pressing the home button and the screen turning on. Reverted to 8.3.

I'm keeping an eye out for anything fixed or different aside from the music part of it. So far the few calendar notifications I received have stayed until I did something about them (as should be the case), but that issue with them quickly disappearing on their own only affected me about 25% of the time before. I've also only had only a couple of very occasional restrings in previous iOS 8 versions, so hard to say if anything about that has changed so far. Safari seems to be about the same before, again, so far and based on the sites I use, which rarely gave me reload or other issues before.

Bluetooth connectivity is a big one for me. iPhone6 has some dreadful moments stuttering with playing an audiobook to a speaker in my car whilst also connected to my watch and the car BT system (stupid thing won't play audio through the car only voice calls). iPad has trouble keeping a connection to my ultrathin keyboard. I returned one last week to amazon and I'm giving this one a few days before it goes back. I've upgraded the iPad to 8.4 and the situation appears to have improved a little. The keyboard still goes to sleep but at least it hasn't done so in the middle of my typing - yet. Early days but I intend to really hammer it during work tomorrow.
