    I know it's in beta and people are reported it stable, but they said the same thing during iOS 8.0 and yet what we got on release as something different. How is iOS 8.1 really? Is it still a bag of hurt?

    I don't care about features at this point.

    iOS 8.1 will include a lot of bug fixes and I'm more than happy with that.

    Love this title. I agree. How many IOS X.X is awesome! Perfect! Super Stable! Bug Free! Safari is Snappier! Only to have it riddled with glitches, hiccups and bugs.

    8.1 installation will void your warranty, brick your phone, and bend your iPad.

    I also wonder why that poster is using Apple devices. If his posts/threads are any indication, he is miserable using the Apple platform. :eek:

    iOS 8.1 beta 2 has been fine for the most part on my iPhone 5. It hasn't resprung like it did with 8.0 for me.

    I guess I'm miserable since iOS 8. I mean, the screen doesn't rotate on the dime on the iPhone 6 Plus. The music skips when I switch to the music app. I get overlapping displays when switching from one app to another. Sharing extensions get reset to default.

    What I was I thinking? iOS 8 is perfect.

    I mean, heaven forbid I voice my opinion right?

    Of course it's far from perfect. And of course, anyone and everyone can post an opinion.

    But when a poster has nothing but negative posts, perhaps they are using the wrong products.

    Perhaps you will see improvement with 8.1

    People tend to use a feedback utility more often when they seek improvement on something than when something is all roses.

    I prefer those with issues to voice them (whether I agree or not) because that moves the needle more than not voicing them or merely switching to some other product does.

    Additionally many people voice their negative experiences because they DO like the product(s) and DO want them to be better. It's wholly optional to pay attention to them.

    Don't associate my negative with my dislike of the product. Don't be a negative Nancy. I complain because I care.

    Perhaps you've complained about this enough and should just see what happens?

    *dons flame retardant suit*

    For the record, my iPhone 6 is the bee's knees (iOS 8.0.2).

    Perhaps a satchel of hurt with a pinch of aches and a dash of pain.
    Otherwise, it should be amazingly flawless!

    I suspect Apple needs to know this release needs to be damn near perfect, given the heat they've been taking regarding software quality.

    Will it? Who knows the future. We'll see after it's released. As far as how the betas have been, there are various threads discussing that (although they aren't the final release, so there's that to account for as well).

    probably will depend on what you are using it on and how hard you are working that device

    The betas have been pretty good. I imagine the release version will be fine

    With iOS 8.1, Apple hasn't had time to dismantle the OS very much, breaking things (This also means there won't be huge improvements). As it's exactly 1 month later don't expect many differences, it's mostly just going to be bug fixes and held back features like Apple Pay.

    No; they've had a month to iron things out. The .0 releases are the ones with pain.

    Funny if Android released with the same bugs, the media wouldn't even pick up on the story, but Apple does and everything is "xxxx-gate, Apple's disastrous release" in the media, lol.

    But then again I guess it's not as big of a deal because the crowd at Google stores (Best Buy) will be about 10 deep instead of 1000 deep like Apple on launch day.

    As long as they can fix safari so it's not so damn slow to load pages I would be so happy.
