I mainly use my 5th gen iPod (32GB) to surf the web, listen to music and play some light games. Most of the app I use are competible with iOS 6, although some of them are "legacy version" of these apps as developers have dropped support for iOS 6. I also enjoy using it as my secondary camera when I don't want to carry my Canon 60D. It currently runs iOS 6.1.3 (with a non-official SSL bug patch). I received an email from Apple suggesting me to upgrade to iOS 8 and the continuity stuff - mainly Handoff and AirDrop are tempting as I have several other Macs (which dual-boot Mavericks and Yosemite) The problem is I heard a lot of people complaining about iOS 8 performs terribly on their iPod touch. I think iOS 6 runs blazingly fast now and I don't want to lose that performance. But I hear people restoring it as new think it runs pretty fast. I don't mind restoring as new and re-setup everything. So should I upgrade or hold on? And if the performance is worse, do you personally think new features are worth it?
