    This never happened with iOS 7 or on iPhone 5s . I have a 6 plus. It gets stuck in a way that I have to exit it, open the multitasking and kill the task to get it back.

    Is this something to do with the higher capacity flash drive issue which is a part of a potential recall ?

    It has happened to me with iOS5 onwards...
    The freezing occurs whilst loading websites. The blue progress bar gets 1/4 way across and then just stops. Only killing the app completely clears the fault, until the next time.

    Gotta be in it to win it
    Could be wifi related on IOS 8 specific to the i6. I can remember slow loading pages but not safari hanging on a 5s.

    This happens to me quite a lot. I really do think it is IOS8, as this happens both on my iPad Air and iPad Air 2. The freeze or slow down (progress bar hits about 1/3 across) and it just sits there.

    It it freezes I can't scroll a page, or initiate a new link from that page.

    This happens on my home network, my work network, at two sandwich shops, and a coffee shop. So I can't blame the networks.

    The only common denominator here is IOSApe ;)

    Happens on my 16gb iPhone 6 plus

    I'll be composing a post and for no apparent reason it freezes.

    As you state the only way to recover is pull out of safari and kill the app which then also sometimes loses my work.

    It has to be in my opinion ios 8.

    Annoying as hell.

    It happened on iOS5, 6 and 7 too. The problem is RAM but you guys are noticing it more because each new iPhone and each new version of iOS is more demanding of the RAM.
    Only intensive users noticed it before, but now even occasional browsers are seeing it. Apple really stuffed it with the hardware this time. Future proof? The iPhone 6 was crippled out of the box.
