I have a UITextField which inside a UITableCell in a xib file TableView dequeue the cell, try editing the text field on iOS 7, it work fine.
When I tested the app in iOS 8, it crash the app and throw the exception below when touching (focus) on the textfield :

Code:
-[__NSCFString objectAtIndex:]: unrecognized selector sent to instance 0x7faacacbf110

1.The custom cell not override any UITableViewCell method and implement any method. The textfield just a UITextField, not override anything.
2.The textfield work fine when enable Secure Text Entry
3.Tried load from storyboard, add new text field into View Controller programmatically, but not work.

Tessted:

iOS 7.1 (Simulator)
iOS 8.1.3 (iPhone 5 , Simulator)
iOS 8.3 beta (Simulator)

Is the text field at the same memory location as the error message? Looks like you might be sending the wrong selector if that is the memory location of the text field or you are sending it to the wrong object.

Edit: Hint, are you using objectAtIndex for your text field?

I think you need to show more of the stack trace for the crash. I can't tell if the crash is in your code or in UIKit code.

OK, that's certainly odd. There doesn't seem to be any of your code in the stack trace.

Are you using ARC?

Why are you using a nib file and not a storyboard? If you do use a storyboard you should create the cell in the storyboard, not programatically.

Do you have an IBOutlet for the textfield? Can you show that?

This kind of error can be caused by a memory management error where an object is released before it should be and its memory location is filled with another object. However that is unlikely to occur if the app uses ARC.

You say you created a new View Controller, not a table view controller, and added a UITextField and it didn't work. Did you set the delegate property of the text field? How did you add the text field?

Looks like you are grabbing the wrong object to focus your text field. Have you looked at objectAtIndex for your target action of focus?

I also have same problem..
.. delete the app from your device or simulator and do a fresh install.
My case, It works~
