It's clear with iOS 8, this is Tim Cook's Apple.

    iOS 8 a buggy, rushed out the door, mess. Crashes, freezes, features that used to work no longer do, unoptimized apps for the 6+, not many developers taking advantage of iOS 8 extensions (looking at you photo apps), iCloud Photo Library or Photostream wants to duplicate photos I want to edit in the "photos" area but not the "recently taken" area, Camera Roll (didn't developers know about this?), Family Sharing clearly doesn't work as expected, etc.

    This is the worse release ever for iOS and Apple.

    Unoptimised apps for the 6+? That's not Tim's fault!

    I agree, I've had the opposite experience. I love iOS 8 on my iPhone 5s and retina iPad mini.

    I too have the opposite experience. I have no idea what the OP is talking about.

    As for unoptimised apps that's not Tim or Apple's fault. Everytime there is a new hardware or OS release this happens and it takes time for most apps especially third party ones to be optimised. Most app developers probably didn't know the hardware specifications of the 6 and 6 Plus so will need some time to optimise for them. I realise iOS has been in beta for a while with devs having access to it but again it takes time to recode or what ever they do for the new OS as well as the new hardware.

    Not sure how much there is to LOVE about iOS 8 at this point. Extensions and quick reply are about it. Everything else has been pushed back to October. Honestly at this time its the most lackluster update ever , even more than iOS 6.

    I don't think I'm the only one experiencing stupid bugs which didn't exist during the last beta but are now present in the GM.

    One bug I have is that tapping a row in a few apps take me to a row with an offset of 1, i.e., the next row and not the one I actually tapped on.

    Don't think it's the app though, unless the app developers are at fault, and there's quite a few of them.

    I'm seeing a bunch of bugs with iOS8. I've usually waited before updating but I got this one right away and haven't happy with some of the issues.

    I have some minor bugs with iOS 8, but overall it's a great experience.
    Apple had problems with bugs and glitches during the Jobs era. Antennagate anyone?

    And Steve is dead, so move on!

    iOS 8 feels a little unfinished to me. But I seem to recall 7.0 was the same.

    It'll all be fine by 8.0.2 ;).

    I also love the third party keyboards, handoff and the Health app.

    Tell me. Have you reported a single bug in iOS 8 on Apple support bug reporting website?

    4. so you have submitted the request. and previous iOS's had hiccups too, why the rant. this is a better release than 7

    One - have had an issue with the keypad showing up looking sort of like a badly done pencil drawing. Shutting and opening it again resolves it.

    Aside from that, it's FAR better than in the past. My wife had the battery sapping thing, but steps taken in the past (disable auto updating, background app refresh, etc.) fixed it.

    Tim Cook's Apple? Really? Seems like whistful thinking. I mean, nothing about the iOS 8 rollout strikes me as any different than what happened under Jobs. Maybe you're too young to remember Scully or Amelio? Because there was a stark contrast in styles and practices when they ran Apple. Cook seems like a direct and logical extension of Jobs' philosophy. I'm very happy with how the company is being handled so far.

    Health app is broken till they release a fix third party keyboards lag when popping up. And handoff is .....meh.

    Not even once has a keyboard lagged on my iPhone 5S and I have been using Fleksy and SwiftKey a lot... though I have to agree with you on the fact that the Health app seems rushed out but I think the issues will be soon resolved and everything will work as intended. I also don't think this couldn't have happened under Steve Jobs' lead, he, like all of us, was not perfect and made more than one mistake in his life.

    well the way I look at it, countless apps will have been updated to iOS 8/ recompiled for 6 and 6 plus aswell and optimized, iOS 8.0.1 is probably out by then too fixing quirks, I love my 6

    Thirs party integration is broken with the health app, not the health app itself. I still use it for tracking steps and distance, so for me it's very useful already.

    I've had ZERO lag with any third party keyboards. And handoff is great actually. If you can't see the benefits of iOS 8, that's fine, but don't try to tell me not to like it.

    Giving a final verdict on a product with countless new features that's less a week old is clearly a good way to solidify your argument.

    I'm on the opposite side as well. iOS 8 has been relatively smooth sailing for me so far. Funny how people calling this the "worst" iOS release ever have forgotten about iOS 7.0 ("white screen of death" anyone?). Until 7.0.4, I had at least one app crash per day, with the "white screen of death" reset every few days. iOS 8.0 is far more stable than that.

    Since updating, I've yet to have a single Safari crash or random system reset, and the only apps that have crashed so far are ones that already crashed a lot under iOS 7.1.2. No noticeable change in battery life. Some occasional lagging, but that's minor stuff that Apple always cleans up in subsequent revisions.
