I have an iPhone 5s and I'm afraid to download iOS 8.0.2... How is it? Are there any bugs left?
Don't do it.
My bugs have bugs on my 5s. Apple should be ashamed of this. I would wait.
If you value battery life......Do not download.
its fine..good god..
Its been safe since day 1
I'd probably be afraid of downloading 8.2 as well given that it's note even in its beta stage yet.
It will ruin your phone, your marriage and doom your immortal soul to HELL.
itd be interesting to see their users' reactions if started an alpha test program..hmm..
You know what I meant....
I have a 5c but my battery has improved somewhat after a few days of settling in
I don't see what all the fuss is about. There are bugs but there's nothing that's completely broken like it might be in a beta (that a lot of people on here run on their primary phone for months leading up to a release anyway).
Well, if it's about 8.0.2 then there are certainly a number of threads talking about it and people's experience with it (with most being positive, although of course some having some issues here and there, mostly still those remaining from 8.0).
LMAO we are currently on alpha program testing 8.0.2
8.1 will be beta
8.2 will be final
8.3 will be SP1
8.0.2 is not the massive bugfix iOS8 needs. Basically it's 8.0.1, which added the health app and made a few bugfixes, but without the bug in 8.0.1 that disabled some iPhone 6's.
8.0 works passably on my iPhone5, if I ignore the keyboard issues in the Messages app. Sometimes the keyboard doesn't appear, especially if I go to Messages immediately after unlocking the phone; other times, the keyboard is there and senses input, but the text box on the screen stays blank. Force-quitting and restarting the app fixes it (until the next time). Safari is slower than in iOS7, but not terribly so.
8.0 on my iPad Air was a sluggish blob, and Safari was really messed up from bugs and the UI changes. I reverted to iOS7 while Apple still allowed it.
So, if you really NEED the health app, then upgrade, I guess. Remember that some features in iOS8 aren't going to be turned on until Yosemite is released next month.
My iPhone 5S runs just fine with iOS 8.0.2; you should do it.
Not a single problem on my 5S and I've ran iOS 8 since day 1. Battery right now is 82% and has been off charge since 4:30 this morning with both wifi and Bluetooth on all day long.
That's not true though is it? 8.0.1 essentially broke 6/6 Plus models.
8.0.2 however on a 5s is perfectly fine so far (I've had it for a few days).
Worked fine for me since 8.0. 8.0.2 fixed the minor lagging I was getting, and any app crashes occurred with apps that already crashed frequently with iOS 7.1.2. No Safari issues, no noticeable changes in battery life, no wi-fi issues.
Before starting, make sure you have a full backup of your phone -- preferably a local one, especially if your internet service is not fast or you have data caps. I also prefer doing the update with a wired connection to iTunes. That way, you can let iTunes download the iOS update file in the background, and then do the installation when you're ready.
Another step that I usually take is to restore the phone to factory settings before installing the iOS update. This wipes the phone clean, and purges any junk data that might have piled up in your "Other" directory. After installing iOS, then I will restore the data, apps, and settings from the backup. Not as convenient, or fast, but it works for me.
This 8.0.2 is a bit of a punt in the dark really. It bricked my iPad Air, but the good news is I've got a new one on 7.1.1 and it works great. Going to stay
off any version of 8 until I'm sure wifi bugs/incompatibilities or whatever are
we'll and truly fixed.
My answer to you is in Clint's immortal words, 'are you feeling lucky today'!
If you do it, please let everybody know how it goes. LOL
Of course there are bugs. There are always bugs. There always will be.
On the other hand, my 4s and my iPad mini have been great on 8.0. One of my better upgrade experiences.
8.0.2 is running fine on my iPhone 6, iPhone 5, iPad Air and iPad rMini. Maybe they got it right this time.
Well, with practically any update you'll come across experiences like this for some people. But for the vast majority things go fine, short of some larger more general issue (like let's say one that was in iOS 8.0.1). So for the most part for most people they generally do "feel lucky" and end up "lucky" most of the time.
