    Don't want a repeat of yesterday's 8.0.1 problems. Is it ok to upgrade to 8.0.2?
    Everyone that has - is it working ok? No issues?

    Kinda gunshy right now.......:eek:

    It is, but they didn't fix ANY of the stability issues overall. Notifications still get stuck, control center access on the lock screen of my 6 Plus is still hit and miss. The phone still freezes up if too many notifications come in at once. These problems should have been addressed.

    I'm sure that's all being worked on. They can work on multiple patches at a time since issues of varying priorities can be discovered at random intervals.

    I'm sure it's being worked on too, but I guess I'm still not used to iOS being an unstable mess when Apple used to be the blueprint for reliability and stability.

    I love what I saw someone in another thread post...

    Don't trust Apple QA, but if a few MacRumors readers say we are good, we should be good to go.

    A lot of truth to that! :)

    Just noticed iCloud photo library showed up for me, wasn't there in 8.0 or 8.0.1. Still marked as Beta.

    Yes.

    Why not read over the story on the front page, (with all the replies) instead of creating yet another thread on the same subject?

    Apps still update really weird too. This is an iOS 7 issue that's carried over.

    Apps will update without actually saying that they're updating. Only when you press the update button will you see the app updating in the App Store (but the update already started before that). The app shouldn't be accessible while updating, and it's a pretty consistent bug that I've seen on my 5s that will let you use an app while its updating. Then I noticed that if that happened the update doesn't complete. And sometimes apps even get stuck in update cycles where it will keep on "updating" and "updating" over and over until you restart or something because it never sticks. Mind you I started as new on my 6 Plus and I've experienced all these bugs on my 5s plus this current phone.

    Interesting, in a strange way. Haven't come across that on a few different iOS devices I deal with (like iPhone 5 and iPad Mini).

    IOS 8.0.2 - does it work ok?


    It's really annoying sometimes because you think an app finished updating when it really didn't. I really hope they can iron out the most of these bugs before iOS 8.1 which they typically drop in January or February.

    I just miss when they dropped stable software from the jump. Apple's quality control used to be impeccable. It was THE industry pinnacle, now it's expected for things to be rather buggy at first.

    Mind you I am a huge Apple fanboy, I am team Apple 100% of the way, but I will call a spade a spade when I see it.

    Updated my Verizon 6+ via iTunes on a Mac. Everything works fine.
