    Is anyone else having this issue?
    Images on apps are not loading, safari pages don't load either.

    I also have not have had any problems with the wireless connection besides not registering wireless signal in places where previously it would at least get one bar. But aside from that everything is fine.

    I'm having the same issues, wifi is still connected but safari comes to a stand still, just sits there loading a page, all other devices have no issue like this on our 156mb connection, I had this issue in beta 5 also and went back to iOS 7 because of this on my 5s.

    Was it difficult for you to downgrade?

    No I just plugged 5s in in recovery mode and iTunes downloaded iOS 7 and restored it, not tried with GM though yet.

    What do you mean by being stuck with the GM? Just restore using iTunes without holding the option key and it would download and restore using the public release of 7.1.2 :cool:

    Thanks!
    Is my iCloud backup safe or will I lose my data?

    If you upgrade to 8 and backup your phone to iCloud then you won't be able to restore it if you return to 7. So if I were you I would make sure to disable iCloud backup before/after upgrading to 8. Hope it helps.

    My iPad air has this issue. Safari suddenly stops and doesn't load my page.

    Temp Fix:
    Swipe up, disable/enable wifi and it'll start working.

    I had this issue with my rmini back with the betas.
