It is abundantly obvious that almost no one else is experiencing kernel panics in iOS 8, so you should probably call a AppleCare for technical assistance, I'm sure they will be very excited to help you.
That would not happen. Apple does not support downgrading software on iOS to previous versions.Did that and AppleCare has not offered any help other than asking me to temporarily downgrade to 7.1.2 (They are aware of the reboot issue)
There's no need to replace a device for software issues. You'd restore the new device from your backup and the same exact issue would come back.We don't have Apple Stores in my country, yet. So we do not get world class service Apple is known for. Even if they take my iPad in, I will get replacement only after 10 days.
There are many millions of iOS 8 users. There will be posts about kernel panics no matter what. But because the posts are so few, and so scattered and rare, it shows that it's not a problem with the iOS 8 software, it's some app, some website, or some other sort of issue unique to your device.By the way, even one of my friend's iPad Air had a kernel panic and rebooted itself. He said it happened after 2 days of heavy Safari use. I am pretty sure that sooner, many people will find out that this is a real problem.
There are few isolated posts about spontaneous reboot on this forum as well. Just that they have not received enough attention.
Mine reboots after 1-2 days with kernel panic.
Everything works fine on mine, except...
If I'm connected to 5GHz WiFi, it kind of loses the connection. It doesn't actually disconnect, but the speed drops to zero. If it's a 2.4GHz connection, there's no problem.
I have both at home and at work and it happens at both places.
