    I'm noticing that apps are taking forever to download on my iPhone 6. Anyone else having that issue? I downloaded the speed test app, but it's not really helping me as I have no idea what the numbers actually mean. Anyone have any insight?

    Well what numbers are you getting from SpeedTest? Are you on a wifi network? LTE? 3G? If downloads are the issue, you want to look at the downlink speed. But latency could also be slowing things up. Also remember that app downloads have several steps, one is the actual download, then it has to decompress and install the app. Plus, there's just a ton of people downloading right now (everyone who wants iOS 8 for older phones as well).
