    I am running iOS 8 on my iPad Air. Runs great and have not encountered any problems at all. Wifi is always on and fast, apps work fine.

    I love it.:)

    Same here. Runs beautifully on my iPhone 5. In fact, I was at a Apple reseller the other day and they had an iPhone 5 on display running iOS6. Did a quick speed test and iOS8 simply blew iOS6 away. I didn't know animations on iOS6 were so slow!

    iOS8 is way slower on the iPhone 5 than iOS6 was. What are you talking about?

    Happy with ios 8 & apple

    I have iOS 8 on my iPhone 6 and iPad 4. Both work fine, no issues. I am happy and like the new features compared to iOS 7.
    This thread won't get nearly the number of responses as the complaint threads. People love to hate on MacRumors.

    I absolutely love it, I've found it to be responsive and enjoyable to use. The complaints are from people who seem to never be happy with anything. I'm sure that they're the same people who complained about iOS 7 being unstable and ugly and iOS 6 being unstable and dated looking.

    That's an incredibly arrogant way of painting everyone with the same brush. There are those who are happy with it and those who aren't (either for legitimate reasons or not).

    Absolutely correct. And I bet they will complain about iOS 9 as well....

    And iOS 10, and iOS 11... and yet they'll keep buying Apple products instead of putting their money where their mouth is and buying something that they won't complain about.

    But hey, no need for me to add to the negativity. Point is, there are indeed plenty of people out there that are happy with iOS 8, and that number should grow as Apple continues fixing bugs.

    I'm not absolutely sure all of the complainers are really Apple users....

    'Competition' is perhaps losing a lot of money by 'sponsoring' the constant whiners and moaners on here.. Instead if they spent that money on improving their products, it would benefit consumers a lot more....

    ----------

    Thank you OP for starting a positive thread, amongst a lot of 'cesspool' floating around on these forums...

    By the way, 2 iPhone 5s's, 2 iPhones 5c's, 1 phone 5, 1 iPad air, iPad 2, are all working smoothly on iOS 8, in my house...

    iPad 2 needed 8.1.1 to sort out the safari loading issues and some stutters. But since the update 8.1.1., iPad 2 is working like a champ again..

    I have not used apple pay since the first week it came out. I don't eat McDonald's and I refuse to go to Walgreens. Guess I could eat panera or subway everyday but then I would get sick salads. Other than that I'm not going out of my way to find NFC readers so I just stopped looking

    Some folk wouldn't know "Positive" if it kicked them in the rear end, then pulled funny faces when they turned around. :rolleyes:

    Agree with OP! I don't seem to see any of the supposed issues that others constantly complain about, ...and I don't think it's arrogant to point out the fact that a lot of wingers are the very same that complain about previous iOS' either! Rather, I think it's prudent to realise that some folk are paid by the competition to complain and create imaginary issues within a community.

    Nice Post! Keep at it Apple.

    Trust me I'm positive. Have not said a single thing bad about ios8 or Yosemite. And I'm in love with my 6 plus.

    It is a bit frustrating that I can't use apple pay as much as I would like. It's not apples fault but my point was it works great but it sucks it's not used everywhere yet.

    Installed 8.1.1 on my iPad Mini 2 and now it's running great... as it did with 8.1, and 8.0, and 7.1.2... and so on! No complaints. :D

    The only arrogance I've seen on here is from the people who complain. They're so ignorant and insolent. They cannot believe that people actually enjoy something the proclaim to hate.

    Same here, OP. iOS 8 was running flawlessly on my iPhone 5 (my sister uses it now) and no issues on my iPhone 6 either.

    Absolutely agree, but if I'd say something like that, I would be banned again.

    Yes the 'powers to be' at MR sometimes work in mysterious ways...

    I am surprised you got banned, as usually you are trying your best to help others and occasionally 'spar' with serial whiners and moaners..

    I guess helping others and being generally positive about issues on here, doesn't generate enough visits to the site...

    8.1 running smoothly on my iphone5 and iPad Air, stutters a bit on my i pad4, and does this strange thing on startup ... After the apple symbol the screen goes completely black, as though it is dead, for about 10 seconds, then comes on as normal. Also happens on a friend's ipad4. But doesn't happen on my iPad air.

    So, 2 questions: does this happen on yr ipad4? And, are you running 8.1 or 8.1.1?

    I haven't updated to the latter yet because there have been so many negative posts about wifi, bluetooth problems.
