4S here, I've faced three bugs before which so far only one has been fixed:

Banners now go away like they did in iOS 7.

They haven't fixed the bug where Siri automatically turns on location services even though I set them off for her.

Also, I'm still not getting the verification code for iCloud keychain (it turns off by itself).

I still have iOS 8.0.1 working on iPad 4 and iPhone 5 and have no plans to downgrade. Being not a "hardcore" iOS user, it works just fine for me so far. Wifi has improved.

Did an iOS 8.0 clean install and updated 8.0.1 OTA.

I noticed that the 3rd party keyboards don't always go back to Apple keyboard by itself anymore. But still can't use those keyboards on quick reply from the lock screen.

Tried for a couple days to get 7.1.2 or whatever it was reinstalled on my 5c after a ton of issues popped up after going to 8.0 without success. New patch came out for 8.0.1, installed and still the same old crap. Wifi is horrendous. Apps are pretty much non existent due to no updates apparently for any app and constantly crashing. Messages take quite a while to go through and don't get me started on trying to send pics and such. All this even after a complete fresh install starting from scratch, a few network resets, etc...

Most horrid iOS I've had the displeasure of running. 7.0 was never this bad. I could give a flying f about some HealthKit app I'll never use. Just fix the actual iOS first, jeebus.

And it's plausible some users aren't experiencing any issues enough to notice. Friend of mine told me her 5c is running perfectly. Yet a few others are having as rough time as I am. YMMV.

I have it on my iPad 2, still getting crashes all over the place.

I have an email and when I select a particular portion of the text in order to copy/paste it, it makes my iPad reboot 100% of the time. Trouble is, I don't want to send the email to Apple for them to look at because it's a holiday booking confirmation and has lots of personal information.

I put 8.0.1 on my iPhone 5S and iPad mini (non-retina).

No issue with the mobile network or touch-id on my phone, luckily.

I didn't seem to be affected by any slow-wifi issues so the only bug I wanted fixed was the one related to uploading images via Safari. And that has been fixed.

Edit to add: Some people fixed slow Safari issues by turning off "Preload Top Hit" which I always have turned off anyway.

For those who think they don't have "bugs", you make me laugh. Bugs exist, you just don't what they are know they are there.
Any chance you could list the bugs for us and give us all an idea of when we can expect to encounter them? This nonsense reminds me of Rumsfeld's hilarious; "Unknown, unknowns"

I doubt Apple care.

There's an entire thread dedicated to it and the botched ios 8.0.1 updated fixes a list of known bugs. That's validity.

This is what iOS 8.0.1 was SUPPOSE to fix;

- Fixes a bug so HealthKit apps can now be made available on the App Store
- Addresses an issue where 3rd party keyboards could become deselected when a user enters their passcode
- Fixes an issue that prevented some apps from accessing photos from the Photo Library
- Improves the reliability of the Reachability feature on the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus
- Fixes an issue that could cause unexpected cellular data usage when receiving SMS/MMS messages
- Better support of Ask To Buy for Family Sharing for In-App Purchases
- Fixes an issue where ringtones were sometimes not restored from iCloud backups
- Fixes a bug that prevented uploading photos and videos from Safari

Now in iOS 8.0.1 the known bugs known are;

1. Breaks cellular service on iPhone 6, iPhone 6+ and some iPhone 5/s
2. Breaks Touch-ID on iPhone 6, iPhone 6+ and some iPhone 5/s

Bug exist, whether you experience them or not is another story. Proof they exist is in Apple's updates to iOS.
