    Just seeing if this is universal to iOS 8 or if it's an issue with the NAND memory on the 128gb devices. I have both the 6 and 6+ 128gb, and both tend to freeze for several seconds when I try to delete an app. Both on 8.1. Thanks!

    I was just coming here to ask about the same issue, found your thread after searching.

    Same thing is happening to me on a (you guessed it) 128GB 6+. Don't know if the 128GB NAND is the problem or not - would be really interested to hear if any 64GB-ers are having the same problem.

    Basically just like OP described: if you go into wiggle-mode on your home screen and hit the x on an app, it takes anywhere from 5 to 10 seconds before the "Are you sure?" alert pops up. Pretty annoying, especially if you are wanting to go through and delete several apps in succession.

    Edit: If it's relevant at all, I have 124 apps installed. At first I thought the large number of apps was to blame, but I'm not sure.

    Edit 2: I just asked a friend if he had a delay on his 64GB 6 when trying to delete apps, and he said a little. Then we compared. His takes around 5 seconds before the alert came up. Mine took about FIFTEEN seconds. And he has 177 apps installed.

    Edit 3: I just asked another friend to try it on his 128GB 6+. His confirmation alert appeared instantaneous. He only has 75 apps installed, though.

    Thanks for your reply Wermy. I only have about 20-30 apps installed on my device, so I don't think number of apps is necessarily the culprit. I need to break out my other devices and see if they have issues as well. It's a really annoying bug if you like to test out apps and delete them!

    I got *really* annoyed at this problem this weekend as I was trying to delete some games I don't play much and that sort of thing. So I did a restore and set it up as a new phone, and the problem went away completely (when I first got my 6+ I restored from a backup).

    pdaholic: did you happen to do a restore from backup when you set up your phone?

    Never mind, it's back. :(

    Downloaded an app to try out earlier, went to delete it, and it took a good 20 seconds or so for the deletion confirmation alert to pop up.

    Yep, restore didn't help. My iPod touch on iOS 8 is doing the same, so I don't think its related to the specific device. This morning I went to delete some tested apps, and strangely, the first deleted immediately, but the second required a long pause! I'm wondering if 8.1.1 may fix, but I'm not updating yet as I plan to jailbreak. Annoying bug!

    Well that's actually encouraging. If your iPod Touch is doing it as well it probably isn't related to the type of NAND. I was worrying it would be a sign of trouble to come further down the road for my device. Hopefully not. :)

    Just chiming in. I have a 64GB 6+ and do not have this issue.

    I just upgraded to 8.1.1... So far so good. Hopefully that was one of the fixes. :)

    I hope Wermy! Like I say though, I'm probably holding off on upgrading because of the jailbreak. I've actually got a "delete" folder and fill it up to delete a bunch of apps at once, haha!
