    Ok, so my problem since I've upgraded to ios 8 is that app store updates on my iphone 5 are very very slow, or not at all. When I try to update an app, whether on wifi or 4g the wheel starts rotating and it continues with no result. Usually I force-quit the app store. Same thing when I try to download a previously purchased app...I haven't tried purchasing a new app.

    I end up just going to itunes to sync and update. I also get the issue of the app store badge still showing even when all apps are updated.

    It's also very slow for me... Same with iTunes Match which is extremely slow (I'm currently with the support to clear up my queue)...

    I guess it has to do with the sales of the iPhone 6, the multiple apps updates, the iOS updates... This must eat through their bandwidth and servers like crazy...
