    There are so many glitches that I have to downgrade back to 7.1.2 on my 5S.
    Anyone else having this issue?

    I think you meant "iOS is unsable on my device."

    I upgraded my iPhone 5 - didn't do clean install or settings reset as I usually do and haven't had any issues (other than the LINE app crashing).

    Mine has been restoring from backup for 8 hours and killing the battery something awful.

    I can't seem to get continuity working for mail with my Mac either. It opens, spins, then the draft closes.

    I may have to do a re-install with x-code

    I performed a clean install and I found it somewhat buggy. It was mostly laggy. I'd tap on something and it would be delayed. Multitasking was delayed too. Downgrading to 7.1.2 right now. I'm hoping they tweak it before the 17th.

    Not me. Beta 5 gave me very little problems over the past few weeks, and haven't had any problems with the GM on my 5S.

    It's been fine on my iPhone 5 as far as performance and smoothness is concerned.

    I did an upgrade on my iPhone 5, running fine. Feels as fast as iOS 7 did.

    Everything running a lot smoother and less buggy than B5 for me.

    Working great here on m 5s and iPad 4. My battery was bad on my 5s but I reset all settings and it seems back to what it was on 7.1.2. I also did a dfu restore but j restored from an iCloud backup.

    I had some lag issues, but decided to do a clean install. It's my first clean install since 2010 and iOS 4.

    It resolved the issues, and also freed up a whole FIFTEEN GIGS of space. I don't know what was wasting all that room but that's a lot of cruft cleaned up!

    If you haven't done a clean install in a few years it can be worth the trouble of setting the phone up again. Give it a try.

    Completely stable for me on iPhone 5s and retina iPad mini, and I've been doing regular installs since the first beta.

    agreed. Had to go back to system 7. ;) Wednesday's download better be better cause there is no way this OS can be a daily driver in this state. :(

    You mean aside from a few other threads with people talking about this type of thing?

    No issues yet. Been working fine on my 5. Only apps that haven't been updated for iOS8 seems to be crashing.

    I just used mine, and was able to do stuff.

    I call shenanigans.

    iPhone 5 with GM here and no issues. Runs so much better than all of the betas.

    Cleaner, faster.

    Works fine!

    A few glitchy apps but that is to be expected.

    It's been mostly stable on my iPhone 5 though the settings app has crashed a few times, and Safari has froze also. Might try a clean install.

    Quite a bit of lag on my retina ipad mini. Music skips when switching apps or when initiating various events. So annoying.

    There are tons of graphical glitches and delays. I did a clean install.
    If you play a video in safari, and rotate it, the GUI will go insane. Try it.

    Sometimes when you send a text, the message bubble will be invisible for a split second.

    Pulling down notification center had a delay a lot of the time.

    Things crash left and right.
