I installed it a few days ago on my 5s. There have been a few glitches I have noticed in certain apps, but those apps haven't been updated yet for 8.0 so that is to be expected. The performance is as good or better than when I was running 7.1.2. A few times the phone has "resprung" when I was using Safari. Battery life seems to be about the same. Your experience might differ depending on what apps you run.New to the iphone world but i was wondering if it is safe to install ios 8 GM on my 5s? I am not a developer btw.
Do you have a download link that doesn't require a dev account? TIAThanks for all the replies, and i also haven't heard anyones iPhones crashing so I probably will download and install iOS 8. My only concern is that some people are stating that it is the final build update for developers.. And some stating it isn't. A little bit confused but i will still install it and and give feedback.
It's safe, but extremely buggy. I wouldn't recommend it.
Seems fine on iPhone 5 here.thumbs down on the iphone 5. way too many bugs from voicemails to control center to app performance. No thanks try again, Apple.
No more or less safe really.Unless you're getting it from Apple, it's probably not "safe."
