    I still find iOS 8.3 has so many bugs on both my iPad Air 2 and iPhone 6 plus.

    Do you think iOS 8 will ever be bug free and as stable as iOS 7.1.2 was?

    Saying 7.1.2 was more stable than 8.3 is subjective, but iOS 8 is likely going to stay as is.

    8.3 has certainly gotten closer, and has been better than previous versions of iOS 8. We'll see what 8.4 brings.

    As far as I can see from the change log, ios 8.4 will bring no performance\stability improvements.

    Nope. 8.3 was probably as good as it gets.
    So if you're a 6+ owner, the whole year of ownership will have been fraught with problems.

    Don't think we've seen the final change log. Not to mention that not everything even gets covered in those.

    I'll be so happy to be proved wrong! I'm not satisfied at all about ios 8.3 on my iPad Air

    Ios 8.3 just destroys continuity on my iPad mini. And iOS 8.4 is now stable enough, even this is just the third beta.

    I find 8.4 beta quite stable actually.

    Ios 8.3 is really buggy. I don't think this would change much on iOS 8.4.
    We would better waiting for the upcoming iOS 9, rather than wishing iOS 8.4 could shake things a little bit.

    Yeah, I think iOS 8.4 will be the best it gets, and it apparently isn't any better than 8.3. iOS 8 will forever be known as the "iOS that sucked" because it will start and finish as a stuttery, quirky mess. It isn't so bad on iPhone, I can admit. But on A7 iPads, iOS 8 is a horror story.

    Don't think they will do much more work on 8.*** as they already have 9 in the works

    8.3 is stable for me on a 5s, except for SwiftKey which is buggy as heck. I blame SwiftKey because I have noticed they will release a version which is slightly better, then a later update which drives it backwards in terms of stability.

    Just downloaded and installed iOS 8.4 on my iPad Air and it sucks as before. No performance improvements at all. Works fine on iPhone 5S though.

    7.1.2 was buggy as heck, it just had different bugs to 8.3
    Neither iOS7 nor iOS8 is anything like the finished article. However, iOS7.1.2 was at least fluid and responsive. Plus Safari was a heck of a lot more competent and stable.

    iOS 9 the finish software should be a lot better.
