iOS 8 problems? List them here....

Hi...

If you encountered problems with iOS 8, please post about it here.
Others may have tips to resolve the issue/s.
And we can also see if Apple's latest update is yay or nay...

Please do not use this thread to b*tch about the icons or features you miss or dislike - this is about ACTUAL bugs, glitches etc....

Thanks

Any trolly nonsense will be deleted ;)

Apparently, iPad 2 and iPhone 4S owners should wait for an uPdate for iOS 8... those 2 oldies aren't coping well with iOS 8 according to Arstechnica and BGR http://bgr.com/2014/09/17/iphone-4s-and-ipad-2-ios-8-update/

Haven't really used iOS 8 much yet, waiting on my iPhone 6 to be delivered today then I'll get proper hands on with it.

But I have noticed something that annoys me slightly. When I unlock my 5S with Touch ID the top right quarter of the screen goes blue as the animation fades into the home screen. It's only for a fraction of a second and most might not even register it, but I have a quick eye lol Anyone else having this same issue? Might be a non-issue really, maybe a future update will get rid of it.

I'm using it on the old (lol) iPhone 5. Haven't noticed anything like that.
Only problem was that Twitter app crashed when accessing the photo album. But today's Twitter update fixed that.

Now and again I have the feeling scrolling through long lists leads to minute jitter... but I'm not sure. I cannot reproduce it on purpose

Have you tried reducing animations?

Oh you... :p

Hey, they changed the encryption and informed law enforcement that they can no longer comply to assist in accessing devices that are password protected.... Sounds great, but I reckon now LE will just break in without asking?!

I've got annoying noise whenever I go onto the Music folder... Ah wait! It's that U2 Virus everyone's been talking about!

Facebook freezes sometimes while typing. Not able to go back to iMessage conversation when receiving a text notification, you can reply but not return to thread.

Have you updated the FB app? I think they have a new version that is iOS 8 compatible - Twitter's old version crashed also...

I'm seeing the same thing, but not every time.

I notice even the updated Twitter app has some issues. Gallery preview to pick a photo to upload takes a few seconds to generate thumbs, and that on an iPhone 5 with just a hundred or so photos...
A number of apps that have swipe/gesture based UIs are struggling. Snapseed, e.g. - the bottom bar is often unresponsive. But those apps haven't been updated yet.

I haven't noticed any issues with iOS 8 itself. But it seems app developers have to put some more than the usual work into it.

When calling voicemail or conference call lines when you need to enter a passcode the phone does not transmit the numbers (tones) entered. You will hear error that zero is an invalid passcode.

iphone 5, iOS 8.0.2
Issues:-
1. Cannot view received call list
2. iPhone show varying percentage of battery left on multiple reboot
3. iPhone switches off automatically after 80% of battery left.

Any solution would be a great help....!!!

Scrolling in photo albums takes ages now on my iPad 3 with iOS 8.2.

Before iOS 8 I could scroll very quickly.

I have about 500 albums and Aplles suggest restoring the device which seems a drastic and pie in the sky solution.

Any other sensible suggestions will be appreciated.
Thanks

Yes Yep, I had problems too with syncing photos to an iPhone or two... Photos were arranged in totally random albums they didn't belong in. Folders just ripped from a Mac...
Restore didn't help 'me'...
Considering that iOS 8.1 will address the photo app, I'd wait how well they fix it.
In the meantine you could use MyRoll - it's a free gallery app. It orders all your photos in Chronological order. It's fast and as far as I can tell, it's correctly lining up the photos by date taken. Drawback: when you edit photos, it takes a while for the gallery to refresh. But if you're in a rush, you find the newly edited pics in the native Photos app under recently added....

iPad mini non retina, since update I get issues on Internet, not sure if it is wifi related or app related but sometimes type and the app will catch up eventually and websites do not load until I stop and refresh the page again.
