    Done with MacRumors, the trolls have won
    It's working perfect for me- the smoothest my iPhone 6 has ever been.

    How is it for you?

    Haven't updated yet. Don't want to because of the new music app. But I probably will end up updating… :(

    Running perfectly for me while doing all my typical iphone tasks thus far, plus AppleMusic streaming ALL day. I'd recommend it to anyone. You can tell it must be working well for everyone because when an update comes out and causes any type of problem at all for anyone then the MR forums would going crazy talking about it.

    So far about the same as iOS 8.3 (where I didn't really run into many issues).

    It's running perfectly for me as well. Updated phone and iPad. No issues, at least not yet!

    Delay between pressing home button and screen lighting up on iPad Air 2.

    All seems well on iPhone 6

    My iPhone 5 is running as smoothly as it ever has on 8.4. I'll post an update tomorrow on the battery life.

    That's it. No more downloading iOS updates using iTunes. When I connected my iPhone 6 to my computer running iTunes 12.1.2, I did get a request for an update--sized at 1.84 GB! :eek: All that just to install 220 MB of code on my iPhone 6. :rolleyes:

    iTunes always downloads the full OS.

    You always get the full install file when using iTunes (rather than just the delta update when using OTA).

    I was getting lots of lag after using the music app. I even tried a fresh restore with default settings. Lag came back, so I downgraded to 8.3 while they're still signing it.

    So far so good on iOS 8.4 running on my iPhone 5s and iPad Air 2. I do tend to do factory resets after updates. Usually cleans up unnecessary files left behind. Thank Apple for inventing their back up and restore system :)

    Very good, my 6 plus feels a lot faster. Battery life seems a little better as well.

    I really like Apple Music. I tried Spotify but didn't like it.
    I like Apple Music's integration.

    Only downsides I've experienced in 8.4
    1. Apple Music stream made my iPhone6 get very warm.(within 10-15mins streaming)
    2. Just like 8.3 or even worse battery life. (8.2 or earlier had awesome battery life)

    Apple music crashed within a minute of me first using it. Not a great first impression. No other problems but I doubt it will cause me to convert from Spotify.

    Yep, this for me too from my experience so far. Wish the poll had some sort of option between "very well" top spot and "pretty well". Tho I have no idea what you'd call it, lol. I went with "pretty well" because I don't have "no issues" yet I do think it is working "very well" for me!

    So far battery life is about the same on 8.4 as 8.3. Overall I'm satisfied with the update.

    Pretty good here. Battery about the same as 8.3, maybe slightly better. Still running off my first charge since updating, however I have 44% left and usage is at almost 7 hours 50 minutes. Animations seem a little smoother. Not as much stutter. Stoked overall

    Any Verizon people noticing a difference in LTE speeds with the new update included in iOS 8.4?
