    Hi guys. I bought an iPhone 6 plus (I came from a 4s) an I'm loving it. The screen is awesome. However it came with iOS 8.0.2, so you think I should upgrade it to the latest version? Did the battery got better or worse?

    Thank you.

    Update. It's definitely better for me and seems a solid update overall.

    Believe me when I say 8.1.1 is the best bet so far.

    8.0.1 broke cellular network and Touch ID for many users.

    8.1 was okay but had many bugs and choppy animations.

    8.1.1 fixed many things and sped up my iPhone 6 and so far no problems.

    Need feedback from something else? :)

    I only got my 6+ 48hrs ago and immediately updated to 8.1.1, therefore I only have iOS7 to compare it to.
    I have experienced several crashes, Facebook almost every time I open it (probably nothing to do with iOS8) but browsing in landscape mode has a ton of bugs. I can't click links and Safari regularly crashes. I have also had my homescreen completely freeze in portrait mode a couple of times. I haven't had it long enough to come across any other nasty bugs yet...

    New iPhone 6+, update?

    I think I'm sticking with this one because everything is working fine.

    Thank you for your help anyway.

    If you want to use the old version then that's fine, but 8.1.1 has performance and bug fixes.

    8.0.2 is really not something to stick with. I would definitely update.

    Exactly. It doesn't even include Apple Pay. There's really no reason to stick at that OS. All 8.1.1 did (other than Apple Pay in 8.1) was include a few performance fixes for older devices, improve 3rd party keyboard functionality, attempted to fix wifi issues, and a few other bug fixes.

    8.0.2 seems like so long ago, lol. Just got my son an iPad Mini 3 and it shipped with 8.1, which shocked me a bit. Updated it to 8.1.1 and the wifi still blows. :mad:

    OP, just go ahead and update that 6+. There isn't any reason not to.
