iOS 8.0.2 update problems reported by some


When iOS 8 released to the general public earlier this month there was plenty to say about the many improvements and new features on offer. However, Apple has been going through the mill following various issues that arose, and then again with the iOS 8.0.1 update. Now to exacerbate things further, iOS 8.0.2 problems are being reported by some users.

Very quickly after iOS 8 arrived for device owners we began to receive comments and emails from readers about various issues, and looking at social media and forums soon revealed that many more were facing difficulties with the update. Apple then released iOS 8.01 with fixes but this made things worse as it caused Touch ID and calling issues for the iPhone 6, leading to Apple promptly pulling the update.

Apple promised another update to fix things and iOS 8.02 duly arrived two days ago. It appears to have fixed various problems for some device users, for example yesterday we told how it has resolved the lagging problems noted by iPhone 4S users. However, other users are now reporting various glitches following the update.

iOS 8.0.2 update problems

A look at Apple’s Support Communities forum reveals plenty of threads regarding different issues. For instance one person says, “I updated my iPhone 6 to iOS 8.0.2 and everything was working fine, for a few hours, then I began to lose connectivity with phone calls and text messages (Non iMessage). I thought iOS 8.0.2 was supposed to fix the connectivity issue.” Another user says, “After updating to ios 8.0.2 have problems with my cellular reception on iphone 5s no service appears every few minutes…. does anyone know what to do?”

Yet another commenter has noticed a problem with Wi-Fi saying, “Once I updated my iPhone 6 plus and iPad air on iOS 8.0.2 I started having lots of issues with wifi. On my iPad air once in a while internet speed becomes zero or really slow. And my iPhone … have to reboot it to fix once. So basically Only reboot fixes the problems on iPhone and ipad.” Another device owner says, “On the iPhone 5s the same problem after update 8.0.2. Wifi very slow.”

There are also comments from iPad and iPad mini owners who are having difficulties following updating to iOS 8.0.2, and other issues too regarding Bluetooth, Safari, random crashes and more. As millions of iOS device users have updated their devices it’s virtually inevitable that there will be some glitches, and it’s difficult to ascertain whether the above problems are widespread or more isolated incidents. Therefore it would be interesting to hear from readers about this.

Have you updated your iPhone or iPad to iOS 8.0.2, and if so have you noticed any problems with your device? It would be good if you could let us know the nature of the issue and the device you are using when you send us your comments.

    Running iOS 8.0.2 on iPad Air WiFi + Verizon 4G. WiFi at home (using Verizon DSL line) OK for first few hours, then about half the time too slow to use (download speeds in 0.00 to 0.2 range). Resetting network on iPad and rebooting, rebooting modem: no difference. Followed online advice to turn off WiFi networking (under Settings/Privacy/Location Services/System Services) and reboot: WiFi download speed returned to 4.5 Mbps at least for time being. Don’t know yet if it will last.

    Running iOS 8.0.2 on iPhone 6, the device is unable to maintain the wi-fi connection, it doesn’t even reconnnect itself untill the wifi network is manually selected again. I run iOS 8.0 GM on iPhone 5 and had no such issue whatsoever. Is it the software issue or device then?? Or is it jus iOS 8.0.2 issue in connection to iPhone 6. Looks like the shine is quickly wearing off

  3. Simon J Miller says:

    IOS8.02 on ipad2. Ipad2 was the best thng ever, until two days ago. The bug to fix the bugs which was supposed to fix the bugs didn’t fix the bugs so much as unleashed a virulent plague of gremlins. So utterly frustrating, nothing works as intended to. Lag, crashes, unexpected activity. Safari is as random as an algorithm designed on acid. If only there was a way to go back to the moment before I decided to put an axe through it……… Apple. Disappointing. It wasn’t broken. It is now. If I could sue I would.

  4. Kasper says:

    Please somebody help with this

  6. Dave Wu says:

    I had to get a new phone because updating to 8.02 gave me this flashing red screen and wouldn’t turn on. Good thing for applecare, they gave me a brand new 6

  7. Ant991 says:

    No Service on iPhone 5s after update!! Apple, you really are just useless! surely you have an engineer that can test this before releasing it to your millions of customers!!!

  8. John Hodgson says:

    Am having wifi connectivity problems on IPad Air which is updated to iOS 8.02. Works for a while after reboot then slows down and stops. I have a router which has both 2.4 ghz and 5 ghz channels – 5ghz doesn’t work at all. hope Apple fix this soon as the IPad is just a useless brick at the moment.

  9. Rachel says:

    Updated to iOS 8.02 after having problem with my phone freezing on the initial update, the phone would freeze and then close the app. I now have problems with anything other than calls or Wifi. Wifi seems to be fine but as soon as I loose it my phone won’t recieve texts at all, iMessages or connect to safari. Iv reset the network settings twice but it doesn’t do anything other that loose my wifi password

  10. Jackies says:

    Updated my IPad mini and now having terrible problems trying to open any of the apps, or Safari…won’t connect to the internet through Wi-Fi…battery doesn’t seem to last as long and I have to keep rebooting…very frustrating!

  11. Aaron L says:

    updated my iphone 5 to the ios8.0.2 and now all my Imessages are being sent as email. I tried resting the network setting, no avail. anyone have the same issue?

  12. Allan says:

    I updated my IPad yesterday to 8.0.2 and now having issues. There is no “x” icon to close apps. You have to shrink the display or an “x” to appear and then are taken to recently viewed apps. Alos Ipad speed slows down from time to time.

  13. anonymous says:

    i tried to update my ipad mini in the last couple of days and when it reaches on terms and conditions and hit agree, it just froze. i switched it off and tried again, but it does the same thing. very frustrating

  14. Ramit says:

    I have Upgraded ios8 to ios 8.0.2 on my iphone5 . After that my wifi is unable to connect. I really don’t understand are we paying for iphone to avail these kinda services. I have already tried resetting my network setting many times. Can anyone please suggest how to connect with wifi. And can anyone please wake up apple guys. Reply awaiting.

  15. Breeze says:

    I just recently updated to iOS 8.0.2 and now I have no internet connectivity whatsoever on my iphone 6, not really tripping about it though, its brand new software, and there are going to be problems, like anything else, but I do miss my internet!!!

  16. Inke says:

    I have updated my iPhone 4S and now I cannot change any settings. When I chose the ‘settings’ button
    the settings choices flash up but then the screen reverts to the previous screen. Other applications and
    settings seem to work. Any suggestions for how to fix this?

  17. Shirley says:

    Updated my iPad mini to iOS 8.02, now I can’t get any connection to the internet via WIFI. What should I do ? Extremely frustrated as its the only thing I use the iPad for !!!!

  18. Neal says:

    iPhone 5s was working great until iOS8 was installed… then 8.02 still having problems with wifi and 4G connectivity. Besides that, battery is draining like mad, rotation doesn’t work for certain videos/games, and camera doesn’t know which way is up. Please help me.

  19. Neal says:

    Anyone know when they will come out with the fixes or new iOS8.03 addressing issues with non iPhone 6 owners? or is this Apple’s way of making everyone buy an iPhone 6?! We want COMPENSATION!!!

  20. Karate Blanc says:

    Went to charge my iPad Air, was perfectly fine up until it forced update. After the update it would only show the charger with an arrow pointing to a red itunes logo, Tried the restore as it asked for and it gives me an error every time. Tried just about every fix but there is no way to fix it. I now have a 700ish $ doorstop.

  21. Neil Norman says:

    Upgraded my IPhone 4s to 8.0.2 (foolishly) Camera does now not work. A bit worried because not many other people mention this problem so are Apple working on it?

    1. William Pitt says:

      Thanks for posting that. I wanted to upgrade to 0.2, but the install freezes when I press ACCEPT, (conditions). I was doing a search when I saw your comment. I will wait for iOS8.0.3, which I think may be out today, given all the issues with 0.1, and 0.2. Though, as 0.1 was a disaster, and 0.2, fixed some issues, while creating others, I would rather wait 48 hours, and get an update, that is trouble-free.

  22. Heidi says:

    Yeah, wifi problems and random freezes on the iPad air and on Facebook the screen just suddenly disappears only to go back to the home screen and reappear! Same on my iPhone 4. I guess another update might be needed. Wish I could have just stuck with the previous one.

  23. Mel says:

    I have a an iPad mini, and it wants to do the 8.0.2 update. But it says it needs 4.9gb of space. I would have to delete virtually everything on my iPad mini just to get the update. If I did this would I get that space back afterwords? If not, how am I meant to manage with roughly 1gb of space for EVERYTHING on my iPad??? I hope the next update is not as much space or my iPad mini is toast!

  24. David says:

    I have an iPad Air. Wifi is very slow and the device is very slow after update. I tried to downgrade to a usable iOS 7.1.2 but Apple is now blocking it. Someone needs to start a class action lawsuit against Apple. This is unacceptable!

  25. L says:

    Updated my iPad mini with iOS 8, then again with 8.0.2 & wished I never had as still slower than before. Touch screen ignores what you want to do eg. Scrolling or x-ing off pics on ebay, everything delayed etc.
    iOS 8 Update Automatically opened up 5gb icloud space which I wasn’t using before!
    It’s a very shrewd way to use up your existing memory to try sell you more!
    In the future, I’m going to investigate before I just click update 🙉

  26. R.M says:

    I originally updated to iOS 8 on my iPhone 5s 64gb and had immediate problems with no bad signal and phone drop outs. I skipped the iOs 8.01 as other people were reporting the same problem. As soon as i upgraded to iOS8.02 it won’t let me back up all my data from my computer. There is over 50gb. It shows up as backed up on my macbook pro. I then reset the phone back to factory settings and started from scratch. My old back up is there, it starts to sync the trusted computers back up then when it’s finished syncing nothing has transferred over to my phone except for contacts. All messages, all notes are not there. Have tried it several times with a complete wipe of the phone and restart and still no luck.

  27. Updated my Iphone 5C with IOS8 on friday… what a nightmare. Lost all connection with my phone, cannot receive calls make calls, sms’s even whatsapp messages not working. Now my wifi insn’t able to connect so at the moment i have a pretty pink paper weight, just about as much good my phone is for at present… sooooooo not happy!!!

  28. Madhu Mathur says:

    I have been having random crashes on my iPad Air after upgrading to ios8.0.2 a couple of days back. My iPhone can no longer upload pics to facebook – I use Fb on safari as I do not like the app. I am told that there is a problem with loading pics to safari from the phone and they are trying to work it out.

  29. Sahid says:

    I taught updating ios 8.0.2 will fix the wifi. After update it, still having same issues on wifi. Can be connected but it very slow connection. Please remove any unused apps from this patch like podcast, health, tips and ibooks. Instead install this apps in our devices, you guys should just add into appstore instead. Maybe this apps cause any glitch or bugs to our wifi connection.

  30. Lee Parker says:

    Updated both iPhone 5 and iPad Air with iOS 8.01. Problems with celluar wifi and also screen becoming unresponsive. Where I couldn’t slide to unlock and only a reset would resolve. Another 1.5gb update for iPhone being the 8.02 and still celluar and wifi struggles. Slow, cuts out. And after going to settings sometimes it asking for wifi passwords that were normally saved.
    I’m hoping these issues are fixed soon, as I’m looking to order the iPhone 6.
    A total of 3gb for iPhone and 4gb for iPad updates is ridiculous especially when nothing works as it should.

  31. iManIOS says:

    Apple needs to open ios 7.1.2 if they’re not going to fix all these problems… If they feel that all of this is going to make ppl buy their newer product they have it all Wrong. this just makes me an a lot of ppl think that this is the END of APPLE. My I5 is Slow, Gets hot when charging, Apps Crash, Battery drain from 75% to 34 In sec.

  32. rosali says:

    further to my comment below, the freezing and other problems such as screen shooting off and loads of trash coming on the screen, this is not due to lack of memory as I have plenty of memory on my ipad.

  33. Chris says:

    iPhone 6’s wifi not working at all after updating to 8.02. Same issue for iPhone 5, it’s affecting every device. Cel data is also incredibly slow, I don’t understand why the issues are not being reported widely, people have been complaining for 3 days now, about 8.02.

  34. Moe says:

    Updated iPad 2 to iOS8.0.2. It was a disaster. I keep losing cellular connection (iPad shows “No Service”, even though I am 100 m from a cell station), wifi connection comes and go, touch screen became non-responsive at times, cannot sign in after switching iPad off (have to dock it so the log on screen shows up and I can input my passcode), synchronization often fails, App Store icon keeps showing updates outstanding, even after updating an application, and the device became very sluggish. My iPad is virtually unusable. I was going to replace my iPad 2 this year, but after this experience, I will not be getting another Apple product. What is going on with Apple anyway?

  35. Gaëtan Daviau says:

    I downloaded the latest update on my Ipad Air (IOS 8.0.2) and I was unable to open my Focus magazine in the Apple kiosk. Sometimes the speed of my internet is low. Can you help me to recover my Focus magazine ?

  36. Brad says:

    I’ve got a number of issues. iPad freezes, iPhone 5 freezes too. Both devices run very slowly when they do work. On my iPhone 6 (yes, I have two iPhones, one personal, one for work), keyboard doesn’t work for some of my group text messages. Internet is considerably slower on all devices.

  37. Jt says:

    Iphone 4 s issues, freeze up. Can’t copy and paste, and when working, it keep the paste you did the day before. Evertime i goto a site, I have to hit auto fill password and name to get to my account, and if I goto another page and go back I have to again do the auto refill–pain In the ass… Did I mention it freezes up!!!!

  38. Rick Bronstein says:

    I have an iPad Air, upgraded to 8.0.2, and screen rotation isn’t working. I am stuck in portrait mode, useless with my keyboard. Maybe I have other problems, just haven’t discovered them yet.

  39. pw01 says:

    iPhone 5s – since the ios8 update i have been unable to send/receive iMessages. All my messages go out & come in as txt/sms now. the iOS 8.0.2 didn’t fix it either. I’ve done the reset network routine, etc, no luck. Maybe this is a sign that its time to bail on the whole Apple thing?

  40. Shawn says:

    My family all have iPhone 5S and I also have iPad and a MacBook Aire. We are unable to send or receive messages and my iPad keeps crashing since the new iOS 8.02 update

  41. Installed 8.02 on iPad Air, and Safari is soooooo slow now. Sometimes I can speed it up (if I’ve clicked on a link) by pressing the link a second time. However, if I’ve entered a URL, it can take very significantly longer than it did prior to the install. A reboot will sometimes speed things up, but that speed up only lasts for a very short time. I haven’t used my iPhone 5C enough since I installed 8.02 to be able to report any issues with Safari.

  42. Diane says:

    I installed the latest 8.0 cause the other one kept gliving and blanking out when playing games, it was suppose to fix the bugs but I can’t underline my notes now with out it underlining everything, I’m fed up, if this keep up and it isn’t fixed, that will be it for me and NO MOR APPLE, it is making my iPad a piece of junk

  43. Al says:

    iOS 8.02 is an improvement 8.00 on my iPad mini retina, but still looses wifi connection on a regular basis. The only way I get this thing to work is to keep rebooting. Come on Apple wake up and get your finger out, I’m getting a little tired of poor service. These things aren’t cheap you know!,
    Perhaps it’s time to ditch Apple and head down a different route.

  44. Martin says:

    I installed iOS 8.0.2 on my iPad mini. I have problem with internet. iPad is connected to wifi, but download speed is zero. Also every app is much slower after update from 7.1.2. This update is the worst of every update before.

  45. LMERJ says:

    Installed IOS8.02 on iPad 2 today hoping it would fix the No Signal message I had after IOS 8.0 and 8.01, it is worse, I had no connectivity, WiFi or other. Resetting the network settings helped with WiFi, but I still have no phone line service.

  46. andrew says:

    I am having nothing but problems on my iPhone 6 since updating to 8.0.2. The phone randomly resets every few hours. I get the blue screen of death, the red screen of death and of course the black apple of death. all my iMessages and texts are now gone, my contacts are all deleted, 3 of 4 email accounts deleted, apps corrupted… this is by far the worst update. If I didn’t know better I would think I was dealing with Microsoft and Windows..

  47. Dennis says:

    Updated to iOS 8.0.2 and now having serious conectivity issues with my ipad air. Internet connection is either very slow or fails altogether. When the Google home page eventually loads I have to wait for a couple of minutes before the curser appears before I can even type in my search query. Never had any problems before this update. Apple only seems to be concerned with theie new iPhone 6 (for obvious marketing reasons) and in the meantime my iPad Air is quite useless, so what are you doing about it Apple?

    1. Mn says:

      Upgrading my iPhone 5s to IOS8, my phone had trouble maintaining a stable WiFi connection. 8.0.2 is no better, and every time my phone drops its WiFi connection, I start getting billed for 4G minutes.

  48. Deborshi Deb says:

    I am using ipad Air and Updated to 8.0.2 from 7.1.2…It happens almost all the time, my wifi doesn’t work. It connects fine, but the device doesn’t in or out any data resulting itself disconnected from the internet. I have to forget the network and reconnect almost all the time. Another thing is with the Multi gestures, sometimes it doesn’t recognize the gestures and I have to reboot the device to make it work. It is pretty embarrassing for such a sophisticated device and waiting for the fixes

  49. Cortney says:

    After 8.02 update, iPhone 4S problems: phone and internet service connectivity goes in and out by the seconds; no sound in QuickTime video player; phone is freezing- not processing input.

  50. Vanessa Eugine says:

    Ever since I’ve updated my iPhone 4s, I’ve gone through so many problems. I’ve lost a lot of my pictures because my phone decided to do factory reset everything without my selecting to do so. Then when I updated to 8.0.2, my phone went frozen to white screen with the display of sound.

    I’ve experienced way too many problems with iPhones, I’m definitely moving on and going with androids once my plan is done.

  51. Anne McLeod says:

    Since the ios8 update my ipad air only works for a few minutes on wifi and then stops! the wheels at the top keep spinning but no connection. I have tried all the suggestions to sort it like renew network settings,turn off wifi networking and renew lease and obviously rebooting. Everything gives a short term fix for about 10 mins. My iphone 5 and an old ipad 2 work fine since update. This makes my ipad air useless!

  52. SMH says:

    I’m using an iPod touch 5th gen. Three updates ago my camera wouldn’t work. Then after 801 my camera worked again. Now with 802 my camera has stopped working again! At least I don’t have to worry about calling anyone, I actually use a galaxy s4 for that. However my husband is loyal to appl, but has refused to install the latest updates. He wi. Be getting an iPhone 6 this winter.

  53. Trish says:

    Rubbish connectivity on my ipad2 since the latest update, wish I hadn’t bothered. S L O W to load everything and screen often goes black. Come on Apple, we are trying to remain loyal but this is very poor….

  54. Jasmine says:

    I updated to the iOS 8.02 on my iPhone 4s and now I can’t connect to my home wifi… I love Apple but I love my wifi more. Please make an update that will actually fix this and NOT cause more issues.

  55. Amber says:

    I just updated to iOS 8.0.2 and facebook app crashes every time I open it. I’m nervous there are more problems to come since I just started using it and this big issue is already apparent.

  56. Jules says:

    Updated the iOS8 – facebook app crashed, then following day ipad froze. Does not respond to touch so cannot do anything. Waiting for battery to run out and hoping that ipad will reboot when re charging. Not what i expect from Apple!

  57. Jon says:

    I have an iPad 2 16GB, a iPhone 6 16GB and 2 iPhone 5c’s in my household and i updated them all to 8.02. The only issue I have noticed on any of these is that Bluetooth wont connect to anything using the older Bluetooth codecs. Other than that I love the new changes 🙂 No issues with WiFi or any of the other problems experienced below.

  58. Rebex says:

    I updated, I wish i had not. Apps that used to play a bunch of selected songs serially would now finish one song, move on to the next and stop. I have to hit play every time for for these apps to play the next song.

  59. Rebex says:

    Also, even though i had auto screen lock after 1min set in my previous ios, when i used to be on maps the screen would not lock until i have reached my destination. Now, the screen sleeps after 1 min while running map. While i am driving it is not possible to unlock screen every minute. so before i use maps i have to change my auto sleep setting every time and change back when i am not using maps.

  60. Help says:

    I have an iPad Air and had no problems until I updated it to 8.0. Since then I get email ok, but the iPad times out when searching the internet. It says that my wifi is connected. (BTW, my MacBook Pro has no problems connecting to our wifi. My iPhone 5s also has no problems with wifi, but I have not yet updated the software to 8.0.). I have since updated my iPad to 8.0.2 and continue to have problems with the wifi. I have to turn the iPad off and then on so that the Internet will connect to our wifi. I have to do this repeatedly throughout the day. Also, the iPad periodically crashes for no reason.

  61. thebigez says:

    Just updated my iPad Air to 8.0.2 now mail, Safari and iBooks flash on for a second and then jump back to the home screen. I also lost my calendar icon – it just shows a white box. What a POS. How can the most popular apps on iPad now work after upgrade?

  62. ezrider714 says:

    IPhone 4S updated to 8.0 now can’t connect to app store or icloud… wifi issues with Apps such as Facebook, YouTube, Weather Channel,etc can not connect or slow as molasses Turning off wifi and using Sprint 3G is faster but doesn’t solve the connectivity issues… Is this justa ploy from Apple to force everyone to ditch their 4S phones? Help someone…..

  63. James says:

    I have a iPad mini retina, and wifi is so inconsistent it’s too frustrating to use. My old iPad 2 has no problems at all to verify my router is not at fault. Hope Apple get this sorted FAST!!!

  64. Gertee says:

    iPad mini (NON retina) installed ios8.02 update and NOTHING works on it.
    completely FROZE during update and stayed that way, forced shut down; deleted most Apps.
    the couple i use a lot I left—-they crash, they might start, but then will crash without warning wihtn a few minutes.
    I will not install this on my iPhone 5 had enough probelsm after update to 8.
    Very frustrating.
    At work but will be calling Apple later. Had to call them after 8 update since my iPhone 5 wouldn’t work.

  65. Eric says:

    I uploaded to iOS 8.0.2 and it crashed during installation. When the phone restarted, it instructed me to connect to my computer and forced me to do a factory reset. In other words, I lost everything. Thanks Apple.

  66. Sam says:

    I updated to .02 and now my phone will not make outgoing calls from my contacts. I have to manually punch in the numbers for it to work and of course I have no numbers memorized! Texting seems to work okay…

  67. Rob says:

    Ipad2 here and it worked fine on 7 but them I went and updated. 8.0.2 is like having a virus, safari locking up, black screens etc. I keep expecting a pop-up to appear telling me that my tablet is locked and the only way to fix it is to pay Apple £50.

    Seriously Apple I use your products all the time as does my whole family but if this is customer service then maybe not from now on. Or at least let us swap back to 7 while you fix your broken product.

  68. Cicada11 says:

    I uploaded ios 8.0.2 on my iPhone 6 128 GB today due to problems with Bluetooth talking to my ReSound Linx hearing aids to hopefully fix the problem. It sounds like the Bluetooth looses connection to the hearing aids and turns them off for about 1 1/2 minutes, then they come back on and I can hear again. I understand there are problems with Bluetooth and cars using the phone. I believe this Bluetooth problem is causing my hearing aid problem as my hearing aids connect to the iPhone via Bluetooth and the ReSound Smart App. I tried the reset fix, Settings>General>Reset>Reset All Settings as some have suggested but that did not resolve this issue either. I can’t believe Apple is not talking about this ios 8.0.2 Bluetooth problem. This affects my everyday life in that I cannot hear when the Bluetooth drops.Try working with your hearing dropping every few minutes! If Apple wants in the Health field, I suggest they take their QA a little bit more serious than they are at present. Whomever was responsible for testing ios 8, 8.0.1 & 8.0.2 should be fired! This is causing more trouble than anyone can imagine. I understand the car – Bluetooth problem but think about the fact that if every time the Bluetooth drops, you can’t hear.My job could be in jeopardy. I posted the problem to Apple Support and they will not even have the decency to respond with even a “we are sorry.” How long do I have to go without being able to hear before Apple responds??????

  69. Jay says:

    I have the latest iPad and the connectivity with AirPort Extreme (6 months old, updated) is very spotty. Often will not connect, when it does it drops connection. Have closed all apps, reset the iPad and loaded latest 8.02 and still the same. This is first time I have been disappointed in Apple. Is there anyway to go back to iOS 7 until this blows over?

  70. JZ says:

    I have spent the last 4 hours updating/backing up iPad mini – suddenly, screen has gone black and there is absolutely no way to revive this unit. For the record, it was actively being used 5 hours ago…WTF apple? I thought this was the reason we left other tech companies behind and chose apple for the ease of use, NOT FOR THE FRUSTRATION IT HAS CAUSED US…oh, and by the way, one of our apple iPhone 5S units was inoperable for 2 days following the update.

  71. Cwilliamsaz says:

    I have an iPad 3 w/retina (wi-fi/cellular) which worked perfectly fine before the upgrade. Now my cellular connection is terrible. It takes forever to surf the web, check my emails or watch anything on the iPad. I use my iPad for work and this makes it impossible to conduct business while on the road. I have reset my iPad and have tried all of the other tricks to no avail.

  72. Aimee dassonvi says:

    I have a iPhone 5s never been dropped etc. updated to iOS 8 it lagged then to iOS 8.0.2 a few days ago. This morning my cellular completly stopped working, well this morning I noticed when I wasent at home with wifi. This is outrageous how can Apple keep messing up. I am tired of two updates being a total fail.

  73. Ella Stacpool says:

    Safari on iPhone 5 constantly stalls and freezes when loading. Also shuts itself down randomly with no rhyme not reason. Very perplexing! Also seems to hate it when a link has to open in a new tab.

  74. JetQueen says:

    I have an iPhone 4S & an iPad 2. I updated to iOS8, then iOS8.0.2. I’ve had NOTHING but serious problems with both devices … The same problems on both, but much worse on my iPad. The screen freezes for several mins. Apps close & open by themselves. Apps close w/out warning. Email sticks & won’t operate at all. Can’t text on either device half the time. Lost numerous picture albums. The list goes on & on! Plus, my iPad battery was plugged in for 12 hrs last nite & was only charged 32% this morning! All of this is just unconscionable to me. Apple has made millions & billions off the consumers. WHY can’t they EVER get an update to work correctly? Surely they have the money & resources to hire good enough IT people to create software that actually WORKS! I am outraged by all of this! And so are all my friends & family who are experiencing the same problems. The last update of iOS8.0.2 was 2 days ago … The problems are now worse than before … And not a single word from Apple! That speaks volumes!

  75. Nancy says:

    Since I updated my I pad a few days ag I have had nothing but problems staying connected. What can i do can I go back to the old one or delete this new update?

  76. LBourgeois says:

    I downloaded IOS 8.0.2 and now my iPad keeps freezing up. How can I fix this problem? I never had this problem before with any of the other updates. It’s very frustrating….please help!!!

  77. mr Dunefield says:

    After 8.0.2 update, whatsapp behaves strangely, it keeps trying to connect, and after a connection is finally made, going into chat it immediately returns to the home screen. The update also messed up my photo album. I tried the network reset and the reboot, but to no avail. HELP

  78. Mags says:

    Updated to 8.0.2 and have completely lost cellular service. I’ve tried to follow some recommended steps, but nothing works. So now I have a tiny iPad instead of a phone. Nice.

  79. Iris says:

    I have updated to 8.0.2 but i still have problems updating my apps. Couldn’t update at all. Tried rebooting, restarting but also can’t help it. I do not wish to reset all setting. Anyone can help?

  80. Ben 91 says:

    I have both Ipad 2 and Ipad 4
    Both is very slow stoppning after update 8.02
    Never benen so before. Then ads flashing keyboard stops shortly.
    Must fix or go back, never had problem in earlyer ver..

  81. george says:

    I have an I Phone 4s and am trying to download the facebook app and after putting in my itunes password it start to download and then just disappears . I can download any other app. Any suggestions?

  82. Mike McAuley says:

    Awful. My Air is almost unusable. Wifi is agonizingly slow and it is probe to freezing up and lagging behind on input. I am highly disappointed in Apple.

  83. Kraus says:

    I have an iPhone5 64g, and I have never had any problems with it ever…, until iOS 8.0 & 8.02 came along:

    1) My phone shuts off randomly a few times an hour, or it just shows me the apple logo for 5-10min.
    2) My battery levels drop massive %s at random.
    3) Apps crashing that have never crashed before.
    4) I have only seen 100% battery life once since iOS 8 was downloaded.
    5) I’m asked for my iCloud password constantly, even after typing it in multiple times.

    1. Kraus says:

      New Today!!:

      1) Voicemail shows indication, but I can’t listen to any of them.
      2) Phone shuts off when lightly shaken
      3) Phone can only be Turned ON with charger.

  84. chevyrell says:

    My ipad 2 reboots every 10 minutes no matter what I’m doing. It makes me want to cry:( I don’t know what else to do. Wish I never would’ve done the stupid update!!

  85. Ashley G. says:

    I updated to iOS 8 last week on my iPad 2.. And I want to cry. I wish I never did it. IF the apps are running they are running extremely slow. The apps that do work keep crashing. The new keyboard is horrible. In most text boxes and I can’t see what I’m typing at least 80% of the time. And no, you can’t move the page to where you can see it. This is seriously the worst update I’ve ever done.

    1. Ashley G. says:

      Sorry I forgot to mention that I did the iOS 8 update and then did the iOS 8.0.2 and it didn’t do anything at all. I’d give anything to have iOS 7 again..

  86. ahatfl says:

    check and see if you IPad 2 did what mine did and opened every app on it……..no wonder it was running so slow……..finally had to flip all the apps off one at a time

  87. Rob says:

    I run a iPhone 5s 64 gb. It’s been a great phone until i updated it to iOS 8. Loss of signal, phone drop outs plus a variety of other issues. I was looking forward to the iOs 8.01 which was luckily pulled out of the system before i could upgrade it to that. Then along comes iOs 8.02. I back up 55 gb of data from my phone to iTunes. Reset my phone to factory settings and do a full restore from my iTunes . Half my contacts are restored. All my messages and previous data are not restored. iTunes on my macbook pro shows that my previous back up is still there, but during my phone restore my iTunes goes from 55 gb that is backed up to 5 gb. My phone is now missing all my previous messages and data and i have 50 gb free available. I have tried it several times to no avail. The previous back up and all data is still there on my iTunes but i have no way of transferring it to my phone. Spoke to apple, spoke to genius and all they tell me is to do a factory reset and restore which i have done. I only hope they can come up with a solution asap as nothing seems to work and i need my phone restored.

  88. Nicholas R says:

    Since updating my iPad Air to ios8 my wifi connection has been severely affected. Whether visiting websites or viewing streaming video, for example iPlayer or videos on the Ted app, the signal fails. A full reboot remedies the problem, but only for a minute or two before the signal fails again. Having paid a premium for an Apple product in the belief that such issues were very unlikely to arise, I feel cheated!

  89. vikram thapa says:

    my iphone 5 restart itself after updating ios8. and also it have problem in charging.. can i know the real cause.. is the software responsible for the cause or it that a hardware problem.. i have done all the possible ways of sotwtware, but still the problem is same.

  90. Jay says:

    Since update to IOS8, Ipad2 is barely usable. Extremely slow and laggy, and wifi frequently dropping. I should have known better and not bothered with the update.

  91. Marion webb says:

    Loaded IOS8.2 and using my IPad is a pain. It has slowed down to almost stopping. Takes ages to get into an ap and Facebook, well forget it, no pictures until a minute as passed. How can I get rid of 8.02 – I want my fast IPad Air as it was before….fast

  92. ssss says:

    update my iphone 5 ios8, then, often got no internet connection while my 3g and wifi working fine. and I’ve update to ios 8.0.1 – 8.0.2 but still not solve the probs..

  93. wacup8 says:

    well I have an Ipad 2 and nothing wrong happened.Now i noticed the Curser color settings really don’t work anymore,and the wifi goes down-but good the update made my ipad faster instead. But also some terrible glitches happened. Like the backround turning BLACK and games quitting me off and safari images taking 3-5 minuites. Also that’s all!Hopefully next update you can fix the rest!

  94. Disgruntled Apple Owner says:

    Updated to 8.02 and it has slowed my IPad 2 “significantly” to the point of not wanting to use it. Also, many times it just goes blank and closes the browser or app and returns to Home page….what’s the deal here Apple?? The old IOS 6 worked better than any of the last 2 updates – plus it took way less memory. Guess it’s time to punt on Apple and get back to Microsoft and Android products.

  95. ashok says:

    I have an iPhone5 16gb, and I have never had any problems with it ever…, until iOS 8.0.2 came along:

    1) My phone shuts off randomly a few times an hour, or it just shows me the apple logo for 5-10min.
    2) My battery levels drop massive %s at random.
    3) Apps crashing that have never crashed before.
    4) I have only seen 100% battery life once since iOS 8 was downloaded.
    Please suggest me

  96. Billy says:

    I have no sound thru my surround sound stereo hdmi ever since I updated to 8.2 using my iPhone 5 my iPhone 5s my iPhone 4s or my iPad air. Worked fine with Bluetooth before I updated

  97. movillate says:

    I just updated my iPhone 5 to 8.0.2 and I´m experiencing some trouble with whatsapp. sometimes it won´t open a chat, instead it throws me back to home screen. Others, while in a chat it won´t send the message and kick me out to home screen.

  98. Carol says:

    my iPad air has locked up and just have the iTunes and a lead picture on the screen, it won’t shut down and I tried to do a reset and it hasnt worked, connected it to my mac and did a total reset, went through it for 30 minutes and then ….. nothing its still locked on the iTunes picture screen I wish I hadn’t bothered now, with the 8.0 update it would not hold the internet connection it would just keep dropping it every time it connected, now with the 8.0.2 it has totally locked up – I want to cry it has all my presentations on some training I am doing this week aaarrgggghhhhhhhh

  99. Junior8296 says:

    My iPhone 4S can call anyone with mobile network but as I check fro the software update for IOS 8.0.2 I updated my phone (before my phone can make calls) but now their seems to be problems with my phones when there were no service on my phone the whole time when I’m outside. It’s annoying. Even I’m in open space of the sky it still didn’t work. Wish Apple could have fixed it.

    I think Apple should make another fix on my IPhone 4S not making calls by having IOS 8.0.3. I needed it with calls.
    To solve my problem is to download 3inTouch on the App Store by using 3G (luckily I done that first before updating) and I can call and message with Wifi. That solved half of my problem. Wish Apple could make another update by my phone.

  100. inmyhive says:

    my ipad mini is stuck/frozen with the plug and itunes icon. Apple support tried to walk me thru the issue via phone, but as it turns out I will need to go to the Genius Bar (an hour +20 mins away) to fix this, pissed is an understatement.

  101. Sam says:

    I have had a frequent problem moving incoming email in the Mail app on my iPad since I loaded IOS 8. The “move” operation in the “Edit” function on the side bar does nothing. I have to move the individual file from within the message. The 8.0.2 update has not fixed it.

  102. Bamboozleman says:

    My iPad has lost connectivity despite downloading 8.02.
    I have to switch off and on to restore cellular function but after 30 mins it is gone again
    Screen still freezes and so much slower – bring back IOS 7

  103. Doris says:

    I have upgraded my ipad2 to iOS 8.02 and now it won’t let me pinch the screen half the time to close apps and it won’t let me connect to an interactive whiteboard with a dongle. Very annoying, as I normally use it as a teaching tool, which is now impossible.

  104. Baldur2630 says:

    Since 8.0.2, my iPad just freezes at random intervals, usually half way through writing a message. Since the IOS 8 update, my iPad is just about unusable. It’s so bad now that if there isn’t a fix in the next week, I’m going to bin it and move to Android. IOS 8 SUCKS. BIG TIME!!!

  105. Jayne says:

    IOS has rendered my iPad 2 virtually useless. Constantly freezing. This handful of words has taken more than10 minutes to type. Less than impressed right now!!!!

  106. Diane Worsham Woodcock says:

    Wish I had never updated to 8.0.2 on my ipad2. Constant problems with being “kicked” out of games, and sometimes completely closing them down. Facebook will not scroll smoothly. Lagging keyboard. Very disappointed.

  107. Sara says:

    Super frustrated with this update. Unfortunately, I was forced to update to 8.0.2 when I got my new iPad Air on Saturday. It was the only way I could import my previous cloud backup. Now, I have multiple apps that don’t work at all, and when I try and run updates from the app store, everything just hangs. I’m hoping I can make the updates work by connecting to iTunes, but I’m not holding my breath…

  108. Kim says:

    I have had major issues with my iPad 2 since updating to 8.0.2. – the screen freezing up, programs closing repeatedly, lag time when typing text. I use the iPad for documentation on my home health job and I can tell you I am about ready to throw the thing out my car window! I wish I had never installed this update.

  109. Meme says:

    I updated my iPad 2 to 8.0.2. My email crashes and is impossible to open, screen freezing, very slow internet, random apps popping up at random times. I’m sorry I ever did this update!!! I can’t afford a new ipad, which is what I need now. Thank you Apple for ruining my perfectly good ipad.

  110. Stifler06340 says:

    Worst update yet. Everyone is complaining. I updated mine by accident. Now the screen jumps all over the place! If I hold my finger down, the screen will jump around in half circles and scroll up to some other place on its own. If I try pinching a pic on a site forget it. It looks possessed and have to do it 5x. If playing the words game and you try to move a letter it skips around. This phone is almost useless and wasn’t doing his on 7.1.2. Need a fast bug fix! Even typing letters on here is making another letter press instead of the one I am pushing.

  111. Stacy says:

    My iPad keeps freezing and I can’t log on to some of sites. What’s the use of upgrades if there going to make our devices not function properly.

  112. susane53 says:

    iBooks keeps crashing on my iPad 4, approximately every 5-6 minutes. The only way to avoid this is to put ipad in airplane mode which is a pain.

  113. Jason says:

    My iPhone 5 using Sprint has been searching for service since I got off the plane. It looks like putting your phone into Airplane Mode is still a bug with 8.0.2. Also, it appears that since I upgraded to 8.0.2, my phone hasn’t done an auto backup!

    So, I am about to lose 2 days worth of emails and work!

  114. commenter says:

    I should never have updated to iOS 8.02 – crashed during update and now having to do a recover/restore through iTunes. This whole release has been a joke.

  115. Debbie says:

    iPhone5 updated to iOS 8.02 and it worked fine at first. Now I just keep dropping calls. Never had this problem before. Ugh. Frustrating. It is kinda making me rethink upgrading to the 6 plus as I have been planning. Not excited anymore. Rather turned off!

  116. Amish Bhutani says:

    i too updated iphone 5s, with 8.0.2 and i feel like throwing it away! cellular drop outs! no signals.
    hanging. no response from the phone.
    not able to even downgrade to ios7.

  117. Steve says:

    Iphone 5, updated to IOS 8.0.2. When making or receiving a phone call, the touch screen flickers on and off and it won’t let me push any of the buttons. Very annoying. Wish I could go back to 7.x

  118. Sam says:

    Since updating to the iOS 8.0.2 email crashing loosing days of mail, Bluetooth won’t connect to Vehical anymore . So disappointed. Phone doing random things.

  119. Taner says:

    I have iPhone 5, since I have upgraded to ios 8.0.2 (never updated to ios 8 beforehand) whatsApp works in a funny way, connection is problem, if I manage to open the app it doesn’t let me see any chats, instead it goes back to main screen, some other apps behaving strangely, for instance local traffic app looses the map details, the weather app things that i am located in Barbados…

  120. CZ says:

    Have been having many problems with text delivery and dropped calls since update my iphone 6s and my ipad 2 to OS 8. Now the OS 8.02 “fix” freezes up on terms and conditions as will not progress beyond that. Come on Apple!!!!

  121. Veronica J says:

    I have an Apple iPhone 4S, what a mistake to upgrade to the IOS 8! My phone is so slow and crashes, its unbearable. I since upgraded to the the 8.0.2, a little better but now I can connect to my BlueAnt S4 Speakerphone I use in the car. I sometimes have difficulty making a call as it is slow and there a delay in connectivity. I wished I was able to downgrade before Apple pulled the iOS 7.1.2 out. I have tried restore phone and reset networking but still the same.

  122. Borlosky says:

    man what happened?!? iOS 8 is the vista of iOS… copy/paste broken, slow/unresponsive apps, random crashes. OS itself freezing. horrible lag when typing, imessages not being sent or received randomly…. i thought apple products were “just supposed to work”….

  123. Bob from Cincy says:

    I “upgraded” my iPad 2 from iOS6 to iOS8. Mistake! It has crashed many times on “normal” apps like Safari & Facebook. It’s slow at best. AND, for the first time EVER, it just bricked to the apple logo screen.
    Not to mention the cartoonish appearance. (Are IOS & WIN8 using the same box of crayons?)

  124. XMZ250 says:

    My iPad Air has also experiencing a lot of issues. Apps loading slow, apps freezing, apps crashing, itunes rejecting me to log in, random unable to download pop-ups, wifi performance issues.

  125. Sue says:

    My iPad air wifi keeps crashing not able to AirPlay, FaceTime disconnects and have done all the usual rebooting and still not fixed. Help cos I’m just about to give my iPad up and buy another tablet!!!!

  126. wingsoptional says:

    On iPad mini, slow and unresponsive. Typing lags. My icons that I had saved on my home page for various sites now display a blank icon. Apps hanging.

  127. April Rain says:

    I updated my iPhone 5S and now it flashes from a blue screen to the apple logo and back again repeatedly! I wish I hadn’t updated! Anyone else having this problem and how do I fix it?

      1. April Rain says:

        Yes! I took it to the Apple Store and they had to restore it basically to factory settings but it worked! My phone is good and no glitches yet

  128. Dissapointed user says:

    After updating Apple gets stuck waiting for the apps to reload, after 2 days i gave up and wanted to go back to the manufacture settings knowing I would lose everything on the Ipad, Rather sorry to say that that wasn’t working either… I’m thinking of going to a apple store and let them do the job!

  129. Sachin says:

    I am not able to update any apps or download any new apps on Iphone5s with ios 8.0.2
    tried multiple wireless networks and my 4G cellular network – nothing works

  130. Michael says:

    My daughter just updated her ipad with the ios8.0.2 update and her screen has gone blank. No more ipad, I am having mixed emotions: 1) Another piece of apple technology has crapped itself in my house meaning I have received poor value for money for my Apple purchase (though I am getting use to this and It will never happen again. Thankyou SAMSUNG) 2) She finally has come out of her room and begun integrating back into the family. None the less I would like the ipad to be working. So hopefully the boffins at apple will get their fingers out and let us know what the hell is going on with their inferior products that that are spewing onto the market.

  131. mm2424 says:

    I am having continuous “No Service: connectivity since 8.0.2 on my iPad2 . Works OK with wifi. I have plenty of data left on my Telstra prepaid 3G and have tried reboots and also reset Network Settings. No worries prior to “upgrading” to 8.0.2.

  132. litosh says:

    iphone 4s freezes on lock screen when getting incoming call most of the time, apps crush extremely often, especially when selecting pics from the camera roll. Frustrating!!!

  133. Luke Curtis says:

    Since upgrading my 5S the internet connectivity is very poor, dropping down from 3G to GPRS and E frequently, if I turn airplane mode on then off again I will get 3G for a minute or so then I will lose it again.

    This is in areas where I know I have had perfect reception previously.

    1. Nitin says:

      I’m facing the exact same issue. . Also the unlock screenfreezes every other time. . Which has become even more annoying. . Iphone5 on 8.0.2 all Internet connections have become slow. . Worst ever upgrade. ..

  134. Tinkbaby says:

    Have ipad 2 and it is now constantly freezing, is very slow and I have issues trying to play any streamed video. I also can’t figure out how to delete and clean up the open pages as I did before. Going crazy!

  135. Eugene says:

    Updated new iPhone 6 and iPad 2 to 8.02. Noticed slow page loading, sometimes black screens on both for different periods of time after reboots or at random intervals. Previously used apps crash (jump back to mainscreen) and have to be reopened.

  136. Vicky says:

    I updated my iPhone 5S and the Bluetooth connection to car audio system has been badly effected. The volume is so low I can barely hear the music. It is unusable in the car

  137. John says:

    I uploaded 8.02 to my ipad2 I wish I hadn’t it freezes runs slow flickers it’s just not the same, I wish I had just left the red 1 in the settings icon it was fine before, really annoying sort it out Apple !!!

  138. Siddharth Gautam says:

    my 4s sucks camera hangs screen blank nd freezees help meeeeeeplzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

  139. disgruntled iPhone user! says:

    iPhone 5c iOS 8.0.2, lost service, got it back for 5 days now stuck on searching, cant restore via iTunes as it freezes up, done restore via handset and now wont activate! Phone is only 3 weeks old! Might have to swap for a Samsung S5 or similar!

  140. Maureen says:

    Wish I never updated Iphone5c and ipad. Wifi extremely slow. Can’t sendpics thru messaging.problems group texts messages not delivered. Hate it.

  141. Unkle Travlin Al says:

    When I click on some Whatsapp messages, I am automatically kicked out of the app (iPhone5, 8.0.2). Any idea how to fix this issue?

    Also I see people talking of “forcing close” of apps and reopening – might seem like a silly question, but how do I do this? – thought it would be a simple question with a simple answer, but cannot find the answer anywhere.

    1. John says:

      Force close on the iPad or iPhoneis hold both together Home button and off button. You may lose network settings so be sure you haveyour wifi passwor/id

  142. glenn says:

    I updated my iPhone 4 to ios 8. As soon as this occurred I could no longer connect to our exchange server, despite my android and windows devices being able to. When ios 8.2 arrived I updated, but it still has fixed the problem, despite the phone acknowledging everything is OK

  143. paul says:

    I’ve updated my iphone 5 to ios 8.0.2 and the problem was on the touch screen. It has delayed reaction and sometimes not working. Also when you touch the screen there are some application opening even though you are not touching it. Also the assistive touch is very hard to operate.

  144. gina says:

    the battery takes ages to charge on 5s and then it uses it up very quickly. I used to be able to go the whole day on a night’s charging but now it won’t last half a day

  145. MR says:

    Yeah I am experiencing problems! My husband has been out of town for a week on a job and cannot even facetime me, call half the time or text me! Lets see, I will call him and go straight to voicemail and the same will happen with him. He will try to text me, but the text won’t go through. I will text him and only half of the them go through. Additionally it has eaten ALL of his data storage, and now the phone company is shutting off his access to his phone. Question: How can you use ALL your data in less than a week when you hardly use your phone? I only just found out the problem is from the update, because I was trying to download pictures from my phone to my desktop, but can’t. Sooooo yeah, I am not happy!

  146. AM says:

    Since the update, my iPad screen continually freezes and won’t respond to touch, and the auto-rotate only works intermittently. Not happy. When will they fix this???

  147. bejay says:

    after updating my ipad (retina display) i started having issues with the screen becoming unresponsive in several apps. highly annoying. apple wont let me contact support, because im a couple weeks over the warranty.

  148. tick says:

    screen blanks out, lost all my names from my phone contact list, facebook keeps crashing – I have an iphone 5s with ios 8.0.2 HELP HOW DO I GO BACK TO PREVIOUS VERSIONS 8.0.2 is rubbish

  149. Nma says:

    iOS 802 update–Updated my iPad, now I can’t read any of my books, I go into ibooks and I am kicked out, upto anywhere from 60 seconds to 3 minutes later. I can not even hold the iBooks symbol and x it and red own load it anymore, as that actually fixed it one time before. Please someone fix it, new books from some of the series have been released I’m holding of only a little longer before kindle gets more business, HHHH EEEE LLLL PPPP, PLEASE.

  150. John says:

    IOS 8.02 iPhone 4s freezes at Agree Terms and Conditions. Can I revert or just wait until o.3?

    Installed on iPad OK just a few touch sensitive issues but pretty OK so far.

  151. Mike says:

    Just horrible! Apple is on the way down after Jobs, very sad! My iPhone 4S constantly lags, crashes and freezes up after 8.0.2. I will soon give up on Apple.

  152. Debleath says:

    Wifi keeps disconnecting since upgrade to 8.0.2. While thing actually crashed once but came back to me thankfully after leaving off overnight?? Ipad is also freezing on safari?

  153. Mohamed Mosa'ad says:

    I had iOS 8 on my iPad air so I started to update to iOS 8.02 and suddenly appeared the white screen with apple logo and after one or two minutes it started to restart automatically with a blue pop up screen. and I tried to restore it using itunes it does the same problem.

  154. Linda says:

    Ever since the update to 8.0.2 I have trouble with touch screen. Try to close app with four fingers, the screen does not respond. If I wait about 10 minutes after picking up ipad it seems to work until I set it down for awhile. Very annoying. Ar the coming out with another update to fix the latest update fix problems

  155. skd19 says:

    My Bluetooth in my car drops the call after 60 seconds every single time since the 8.0.2 update. I have a 5S. I tried rebooting the phone and it still drops the call. Actually drops is the wrong word. The Bluetooth just drops out. The call is still alive but I have to switch it to speaker phone to continue talking. But every single time I try in my car it drops out at 60 seconds.

  156. Frank Wheby says:

    Upgraded to 8.0.2, and now battery drains like crazy. Gone in less than 1 hour of use of Camera+. Apple shop here in Chiang Mai Thailand says “Tough sxxt”. Maybe Android phone is next for me.

  157. Eddie says:

    After Upgrading to iOS 8.0.2 on iPhone 5, can now no longer pair the phone with my MacBookPro retina running OSX 10.9.5. Must be software related as same phone will Pair with my older Mac Pro running OSX 10.9.5 so apple has left a hole in their bluetooth sw somewhere. Hope an update is released to one of the platforms soon.

  158. DNA says:

    Geez. I just had to refresh about 5 times to try to bring up this page. Since 8.02 links in Safari just don’t load half the time and I have to touch the link again and again to load. This is worse than Windows. Apps that have browsers freeze also. I pad Air 128 GB here and I’ve got terrible browsing performance. I use the Internet a lot. Games seem to be ok but games where Internet is required sometimes are not performing as well. I thought I would never be able to post this. It tried to come back to this page after logging on to Twitter but the page just stayed blank and I had to keep refreshing to get back here.

    1. Mark says:

      Have same problems with links in Safari on ipad mini retina. Most time they are completly unresponsive. I figured out that i need to slide page up and down when faced with dead links issue. This usually makes link respond in nirmal way…. Anyway, to bo forced to work out DIY solution to this problem is a damn nonsense! Apple sucks! They made me believe their products “just work”! Won’t be fooled again by Cupertino heads. Time to have a look at LG and Samsung products…

    I did do a check on my internet speed and it’s about 14 mbits so ive got plenty fast connection. Way fast enough for a simple browser to load.

    IOS 8.2 update on my IP5s and for the first time in my entire Apple phones that I’ve experience a Blue screen and I have to keep restoring my phone so i can use it then few hours later bam! blue screen again and the cycle repeats…

  161. Dawn says:

    Downloaded iOS 8 on my iPad 4 with retina screen and emails completely stopped. Reset my account and seemed to rectify but very slow and so downloaded iOS 8.02 – disaster! Very slow wifi, and emails have once again ceased! Touchscreen issues too. Also Safari keeps freezing, the emails in separate files, including insurance, Amazon etc etc have disappeared and I am a very unhappy customer. Am seriously considering going back to an Android – had none of these issues with it. Apple have a lot to answer for as their goods are not cheap!!!

  162. DNA says:

    I just decided to order a HTC One M8. I looked at both iPhone 6’s and honestly what’s new or innovative? Having had so much trouble with their 8.02 I’m glad I made the decision. I wonder if this bad update is made to coincide with the new ipad release which of course will work perfectly.

    The problem with Apple is ios. When it works it’s great but if they release a bad ios then waiting for a fix is frustrating. My iPad Air worked great until the latest iOS 8 now it stalls, stutters and freezes and opening a lot of programs makes things crash.

  163. DNA says:

    I’m having touchscreen issues also on 8.02 where the touch is not responding when I tap on a link in Google for instance in Safari. For me the main problem is Safari not loading pages and not responding to touch. Some apps freeze a lot and I guess that’s because they’re not yet compatible with ios 8.02. But safari shouldn’t be so bad as I need to use it to browse and I post a lot. Getting here again today I got a blank page and had to refresh.

  164. Alex Martell says:

    With iOS 8.0.2 my iPad 2’s keyboard seems to have a life of it’s own now, tapping randomly, even facetiming people from my work contacts randomly. Pretty embarrassing. What a mistake upgrading from iOS 6

  165. Angie says:

    After completing the update on my 4s, the phone continuously locks up. It poets down when the battery percentage gets below 30 and social media is a nightmare. I never had any of these problems before the update! I wish I could just remove the update!!! Ha, had to redo this post….. Phone shut down AGAIN…Grrrrr!

  166. bernard joseph titco says:

    i updated my iphone 4s to 8.0.2 after a few hours i unable to open my wifi… i already done all the troubleshooting but to no avail… i think the last resort is to downgrade to a lower version… any thoughts on this?

  167. hl says:

    After i upgrade my phone i can’t open it.. The logo starts to pop out but then afterthe screen turns to blue and the logo will pop out again..

  168. Priscilla Jones says:

    I have an iPad air which has worked perfectly for the past 5 months I’ve owned it until…. iOS 8 and iOS 8.0.2 now I get the Blue Screen of Death, blue screen flashes for a quick second then my iPad shuts down and reboots itself. Also sometimes when I’ve serached in Safari and click on a link nothing happens. I rang Apple, they have no idea, and couldn’t help me.

  169. Jackie Gill says:

    I have an ipad air bought 10 months ago. Upgraded to 8.0.2 and had blue screen crashes, lagging when touching screen and then it died. Was able to get it on to itunes and open it and it appeared to be working ok after a 5 hour restore and back up. Reported this to Apple Friday 3 October and had a complaint number. Then this morning (Monday 6 October) tried to open it as usual (didn’t turn it off last night as usual) and nothing – no logo -nothing after two button restart attempt, nothing after one button turn off attempt and to make it worse it will not connect to itunes. It has died! I have an old iphone 3gs (which I still use) and an ipad 1 which I replaced with ipad air as it was getting old. Never had problems with these two devices. Was thinking of getting an iphone 6 to replace the 3gs, but thinking differently now – this ipad I rely on as I own a hotel, am miles away from and iphone reseller and have an elderley dementia parent living with me so am not attached to pc during the day and can’t just nip out to drive to a reseller. What a fiasco that a company can be arrogant enough to run a piece of equipment from afar and cause such mayhem – surely this is against the Sale of Goods Act – as my ipad air is not fit for purpose!!!! I have left my number with Apple and asked them to ring me as it took two plus hours to get them on Friday!!

  170. Ann says:

    Have a 5 that worked perfectly until I upgraded to 8.0.2 I now have calls dropping out, I get a sound not unlike a single key being used (they are turned off) randomly throughout any conversation I am able to achieve. It has dropped out looking the phone in no ware land, it has crashed the families internet connection and I could go on. We have reloaded the complete operating system to no avail. As a house which is currently totally mac we are now considering ditching apple and going android. They not only seem to work, but do so at less cost than Apple. You have 5 days Apple or we start by ditching the families 9 iPhones for androids and the pads will be next followed by a wide arrange of air, powerbooks and then the real big boys used for graphics.

  171. karlycam says:

    After updating to iOS 8.0.2 I have been having problems with network reception on my ipad. It keeps saying ‘No Service’. Once I reboot or reset the device it receives coverage for about 20 minutes or so and then reverts back to ‘No Service’ again. Highly frustrating.

  172. Katie Katie says:

    I have an iPhone 5s and iPad mini both updated to iOS 8 .0 .2. Since this upgrade, my calls constantly drop out on my iPhone, I cannot watch any streaming video on either device, or stream any music.even when connected to Wi-Fi, still doesn’t work. It is extremely frustrating.

  173. Sam says:

    I’ve got an iPhone 4S 16GB, running on 8.0.2 – phone stays warm and battery drains within a few hours. I’ve tried restoring and updating using iTunes as well as turning off Backgroud-App refresh and location services. Nothing has worked so I will be downgrading to 7.1.2 this evening!

  174. Katie Katie says:

    My iPhone 4s was also upgraded and won’t recharge at all. I actually thought it was just my phone, but now I’m wondering if it is actually from the update judging by the other comments here.

  175. sucker says:

    I had to use an old iPhone 4s for various reasons, and to download the majority of the apps I used to use, I had to update it to iOS 8. BIG MISTAKE. The phone keeps randomly restarting, which is pretty shitty. I mean it’s 80%, then your phone suddenly switches off. You think it was the battery problem. Think again, cause it took a whole hour later (60 minutes, which is 3600 seconds {that is pretty sucky}). Apple should have thought of using other iDevices, and then choosing which runs smoothly. They talk about awesome experience, we talk about sucky experience.

  176. Kirsten says:

    I have an IPhone 4s when I tried to do the ios8.0.2 my phone has completely crashed. Now when I try to open my phone it tells me to plug into ITunes, when I do that it says my phone needs to be restored. I hit restore and it says my phone is not recognized. WTF

  177. Thomas says:

    I have an iPhone 5S and updated to 8.0.2. – after the update I can no longer open open the camera from the locked home screen. The camera shuts down in black after a second. My camera works fine however when I log on.

  178. henry says:

    After updating my iPad it’s slowed right down pretty much all my apps and some wont update or work without a re-boot, complete and utter rubbish what are these people being paid to churn out dross like this! What a farce.

  179. Dajo says:

    Sorry if someone sees this post in a different thread; Just want to get some additional exposure.. Who knows, maybe someone from Apple will take note..

    The glitchy, unresponsive, slow and outright crashes are something you would expect in a less superior product. I paid what I consider a premium because of the perceived integrity of the company and quality of their products. I am not going to go as far to say Apple ***** and so do their products; but they have to to a better job of acknowledging problems and providing recourse. Right now, it “feels” like they don’t care about existing customers. I am not sure of the exact #’s, but I believe products like the Ipad2 represent a significant population of their existing Ipad product base.

    So what is my specific rant; If Apple is going to take a long time, or worst, NOT fix the problems introduced in IOS 8 for IPAD 2, give us the option of going back to IOS 7. I would say most everyone was extremely happy with their product running under that OS and would migrate back in a heartbeat. By blocking this option, it feels like Apple is saying that the only recourse is to live with crappy performance, wait forever without any real news, or throw away your Ipad 2 and buy a newer model. Right now this is 100% completely unacceptable, and I, as will thousands of others, will watch how this unfolds when we do buy new products. Most technology products only have short, finite lifespan and I would think it is at very least very important to Apple to retain customer base in a highly competitive marketplace. I’m done…

    1. yankee505 says:

      had similar problem with ipad3 after IOS 8 download – and did flwg: Settings – General – Reset – and then
      “Reset network setting” – and it worked – and I was able to use auto-wifi again…….
      Dont worry – ONLY networking will be reset.
      worth a try…..

      1. bernard joseph titco says:

        I already did that 10x already it doesn’t work i already did factory reset still not working… i think the only way is to downgrade…

        1. yankee505 says:

          sorry to hear that – maybe problems are a bit different with 4s. Understsnd your frustration and do not understand either why appl does not permit going back with a ” system restore ” like with MS Windows.
          Or do you know how to downgrade – is it possible?

          1. bernard joseph titco says:

            Yes there is a way… however i’m still figuring it out… here in the Philippines its possible however it will by a trial and error basis or i need to go to a celphone shop to have them do it… its not jailbreaking the phone its more of still using itunes but instead of updating it you can chose the later version…

  180. Another disappointment! says:

    I’m reaching out to forums to see if others are experiencing the same problems as I am with iPhone 6 on 8.0.2. With my original iPhone 6 (before O had it swapped out) I was experiencing touchscreen problems such as 1) When writing an email and backspacing (x on bottom), the phone sent the email when my finger was nowhere near the send (on top right corner) button; 2) During a text message, the keyboard would press random letters without my finger being near those letters; 3) When trying to open mail which would be located on the bottom of the screen, it would open another app located on top of screen and MANY other problems with touchscreen!

    I had my iPhone swapped out to a new iPhone 6 from Apple and I’m still experiencing the same problem. I paid so much money for a phone with a software that isn’t working properly. I’ve been told by the reps at the Genius bar to wait for the iOS 8.1 to fix the bugs, but that update may not even fix the problems! Apple released 8.0.2 to fix bugs seen with iOS 8.0 but I’ve just been having worse problems.

    I’ve restored and have set as new 3 times and still having the problem. Now frustrated hope in this will be resolved soon because paying so much money for an iPhone that doesn’t work properly is not worth it. I don’t know what else to do because Apple will not give me a refund nor will they swap it out again. BS.

    Are others experiencing anything similar?

  181. samar says:

    After downloading 8.0.2 on my iPhone 5, many of my apps such as What’s App will not open. Is anyone else having this problem, too? Any suggested solutions? I’m getting curious about buying a non-Apple phone later this year. This problem, layered on top of other Apple related issues – like moving my itunes music from my PC to my MAC which I still haven’t resolved, is making me question why Apple pretends it’s so great.

  183. Jackie says:

    I have updated to ios8.2 a few days ago on my iPhone 5. When I go onto the camera app it sometimes freezes and doesn’t let me view pics taken when I touch pictures at the bottom left hand side. It’s so frustrating and there’s nothing I can do.

  184. Ron says:

    A friend and I both bought an IPAD 3 with 4G at the same time. I upgraded mine to IOS 8 and now I have no cellular connection but his is still OS 6 and works fine. Tried all resets and reloads every combination of switching on and off…NO joy

  185. stever says:

    I downloaded 8.0.2 on my iPad 2. Didn’t notice anything for a day or two then suddenly it would not go beyond the apple logo on startup. After pushing the power and home buttons (frantically) in various combinations it would open, take a picture and go black again. Yeah I grew up in the 60’s but this is no joke. Eventually Jobs from his lofty perch would open it up and I could continue on. What I found when I did get in was a sluggish machine, freezing apps, and several unusual events like automatically and uncontrollably scrolling to the top of a web page. I tried resetting several times to no success and finally did a restore through iTunes. This helped solve most of the problems except the startup bug. To get around this I put it to sleep although when I charge it shuts down and I have to go through the button pushing/ picture taking routine again. Come on Apple, pull your collective heads out and fix this mess.

  186. Ellie says:

    I updated my iPad 2 with 8.02 and it is totally frozen now. It just shows that I should plug into iTunes, but that is it! It won’t do anything! Have forcefully turned it off and it still comes on showing the same! Have plugged it in to charge and still nothing. If another update comes up how can I download that when I cannot do anything at all with it.! Really annoyed this has happened.

  187. Gary Lee Strange says:

    I have had my I pad air not even 2 weeks when I first had it on ios7.1 all was working fine I downloaded iOS.8.02 and the problems began with wifi when I use the u tube app wifi dropping all the time and same with netflex so frustrating so at the moment video is out the question Facebook and other apps seem ok for now I hope thay bring a fix for this soon anyone also having these problems

    1. Annanearl says:

      As you can see my ip5 has discovered the folly of trusting Apple. (This block is supposed to be part of the first message)
      At first all is well, then my music player skips through all 800 songs then stops without playing a single track.
      Along with this the usual Wifi slugs and that bloody annoying lack of battery control. Oh, and my ipad goes into to sleep despite having a app running.
      Still could be worse…….nope……probably not.

  188. Soyaemu says:

    Since upgraded my iPhone 5s to ios8.0.2 I have got lots of issues !!
    Cannot send or recieve texts or make or recieve calls phone overheating battery running flat too quick !! And a pop up asking for my password all the time, and back light dimming all the time not receiving emails the list is endless!!!! Even tried a reset but that hasn’t worked.

  189. atravelrat says:

    Since I updated
    my ipad to ios8.0.2, I have had issues with the keyboard appearing randomly and not being able to close it without connecting to my bluetooth keyboard. Also, constant requests to connect to icloud. New update required more space, so had to delete items in order to make room for it. Everything runs much slower now. Wish I hadn’t updated.

  190. Barrowjohn says:

    Just recently joined the apple community and bought the apple ipad air and so far- very disappointed. Updated to ios 8.0.2 Keeps losing wifi connection, !!! runs slow. Tried everything- reset router, etc. I’m on BT broadband with their very latest hub and have had no issues with any other device in household apart from this heap of junk. Typing this on an old trusty laptop as the ipad is switched off in frustration (and probably would lose connection again). Thinking of taking it back for refund.

    1. Gary Lee Strange says:

      Mine the same john and I’m also on bt with the new hub all my other devices are working fine it’s got too be the ios8.0.2 I hope thay bring a fix for it soon I’m so frustrated its un usable

      1. Gary Lee Strange says:

        Update John I got too the bottom of it it’s because the pad air is connected too 5ghz on you bt home Hub go too your hub settings and change the name and password on the 5ghz network and your I pad will auto connect too 2.4 ghz network boom all fixed ios8 does not like 5ghz if you need help add my Facebook gary lee strange I will help you I hope you all find this helpfull so far so good not lost connection once happy days 5 days of he’ll

  191. Allastair says:

    I updated my iPhone 5 to iOS 8.0.2 a couple of days ago. The first problem I ran into was when trying to update it. My phone glitched and had to be recovered before updating. Now, two days later, my phone started glitching while trying to turn off my hotspot and the screen started freezing, so I turned off the screen. Now it won’t turn back on and the only button that seems to work is the “Silent/Vibrate” switch on the side. I was also able to plug in my headphones and start listening to my music, but any time I try to do anything with Siri, she says, “I’m sorry, I can’t help you with anything right now. Please try again later.” And after the one Pandora song I was already listening to ended, no more music would load. This leads me to believe my connection has been interrupted as well.

  192. Jaquie says:

    I just updated my iPhone 5S to 8.0.2 and about half of my apps keep crashing. I’ve tried restarting my phone, and that made some of the apps work, but others still crash. Any advice?

  193. Prakash says:

    Hi, I have an iPhone 5S , I upgraded to ios8.0.2. And since then the messaging app doesn’t open at all. I also noticed that the battery runs out faster. Also, under settings -> cellular-> there used to be a selector between 2G and 3G which is missing. Here in Mumbai (India) none of the operators have an efficient 3G coverage hence I used to have my phone in 2G mode and switched to 3G as and when required. Now it stays on 3G all the time which causes call drops and network loss because of weak coverage and the battery also drains faster because of low network and constant 3G. Hence the 2G & 3G toggle is definitely required. It will solve call drops and weak network coverage.

  194. Bonart says:

    Updated my iPad2 to iOS8 and lost my 3G service from Vodafone. Error states no service. Confirmed the data works fine on the sim. A reboot of the iPad works for a few hours then the no service error returns. Waited a few days and updated to IOS8.02 but the error remains.

  195. CB says:

    I just updated my iPad to 8.0.2 and nothing works anymore. I can’t open ANY apps. When I click on an app the screen goes black and the only thing you can see is the green battery image. My iPad is now totally useless and I have no way to do my homework. Great.

  196. Freya's Grandad says:

    I am trying to update an iPad 3 to iOS 8.0.2. using iTunes rather than via wi-fi because this requires more space on the iPad than exists. The update downloads OK but will not INSTALL because a message states that the back up is corrupt and it should be deleted and to try again. The iOS 8.0.2. back up is not in the iPad so cannot be deleted.

  197. Hatingapple says:

    iPad 2 wifi only > hdmi to tv not working and very slow wifi ANGRY FACE . USE MY IPAD FOR PRESENTATIONS AT WORK AND THIS HAS CAUSED ME SO MUCH TROUBLE !!!!!!!!!

  198. Pilot says:

    I have an Ipad 2 with Foreflight installed, which I use most of the time to monitor filight info
    and file flight planes.After installing IOS8.02 I can no longer connect to AT&T All I see is “No signal”
    After spending $870.00 for the Ipad2 and $140 for the Flight service I think apple owes me ! The
    device is useless in its present condition. Bad news for a lots of Pilots.and other users.

  199. Ricardo says:

    I regret upgrading to 8.0.2, the iPad is a lot slower despite having plenty of GBs free and BBC iPlayer, which worked absolutely fine before, now keeps showing ‘download failed’ every time I use 5G or 2G to download programmes to watch later. Even copy, cut, paste doesn’t work properly anymore. I so want to go back to IOS 7. Anyone know how to do this or if it is possible.

  200. falfieldkid says:

    From my iphone 4s II have always been able to watch anything on my tv that I can watch on my iphone, such as tv or my pic/videos, was verygood to show family items. massive regret Ihave version 8.0.2 as now it says not supported, what a backward step for me, that was 90% of how I used the iphone 4s.
    connected to hdmi via cabl, not anymore thanks Apple for ruining my phone.!

  201. Alindley says:

    New iPhone 6, trying to add new music to an existing playlist.
    While “now playing” is in use, there is no way of completing the task of adding new music to an existing playlist. Something that should be relatively easy, just ain’t working! Don’t know where to go from here!!

  202. Mocuishe says:

    I am done with my AIR i cant even watch youtube anymore. These so called state of the art os are bs. Amazon prime moves dont work. Yet everything on my phone works flawless. I am tempted to switch over to android. I am tired of complaining and reseting my device!

  203. Cunninghamsgirl says:

    I am so frustrated with my iPhone 5s right now!!!! I never had a problem with any of my iPhones like this before, always loved them and I should of NEVER did this iOS 8.2 upgrade!!! I can’t hear any sounds for anything but when i have an in coming call, I could have 20% left of the battery and it just shuts off and I can’t turn it back on until I connect it, my battery doesn’t last a whole day anymore, I have apps that won’t work anymore!!! So FRUSTRATING I just want my phone back to normal!!!

  204. T says:

    I just updated today and group texts were delayed I just received 30 texts all at once that were sent hours ago. Wish there was a go back to previous version button 😃

  205. Simon says:

    I have iPad mini and since ios8 it’s been a complete disaster. ios8 ver 2 has made it almost unusable!
    Wifi is now really useless. Just drops out more often than not. Safari has issues too. It’s slow and crashes. Netflix barely runs. Takes maybe ten times to connect. I have followed all the suggestions to rectify the various issues and have reloaded the apps. Total rubbish!

  206. Paul says:

    I have a 5s and since the 8.0.2 update I’ve had issues with Facebook just closing down while I’m using it. I also can’t get the screen to rotate when I’m using Safari. I’ve tried selecting end then unselecting the screen lock, which at best fixes the problem for a minute or two. Lastly, my phone has lots if issues on my home wifi since the update. If I turn it off my phone speeds up until I turn it back on. This is an intermittent problem and my home wifi is set up using Comcast and one of their DOCSIS 3 modems with a built-in wireless router.

  207. UsedToLoveApple says:

    I think the time has come for me to leave Apple, since installing 8.0.2 my iPad 2 is now pretty much useless, I wouldn’t have updated it but of course Apple forces us to update by not letting us have any new apps etc without the latest IOS.

    I was due to upgrade this year to the latest iPad, and was looking forward to it, but now I just feel el like Apple is forcing me to do this, so I think it’s time for me to look elsewhere, hopefully a lot of others will do the same and Apple will see their profits drop, they don’t deserve our loyalty with the way they treat owners of older devices.

    I also have an iPhone 5 which luckily I haven’t updated, but I guess that will be pretty much useless too soon as I won’t be able to install new apps, or update current ones, then it will be time to switch to an android device.

  208. Mandeep says:

    Since installing iOS 8.0.2 my iPad air randomly reboots itself with a blue screen. I have tried reset but it hasn’t helped. It was fine with iOS 7. Any ideas?

  209. Hannah says:

    I downloaded the iOS 8.02 on my iPad mini, but if I want to download something I need my password right? Well, my password isn’t working and they keep saying it is incorrect. I also know that I am putting in the right password. Anyone know why this is happening?

  210. Leslie says:

    Since 8.02 my internet has come to a snails pace on iPad. Also cloud will not transfer Notes between devices. I use this a lot,not happy. Facebook now blacks out. Several friends have same issues. Wish I had not updated.

  211. Trevor Morgan says:

    Since updating to OS 8 I have experienced eratic behaviour from Safari. My usual search engine is Google ( not using their app). When trying to key in my search string, after the first character, the keyboard disappears. It will return when I tap into the search box, and allow me to complete my search string.
    Also, when using the back arrows in Google when I reach the Google home window it is blank, and I have to hit the refresh icon.
    My problems seem to revolve around Google, so is this an Apple /Google brainfart or am I experiencing a late life crisis?

  212. not a happy chap says:

    My ipad 2 has bin destroyed since upgradin to ios 8 its slow crashes wont even turn on at the min I’ve upgraded to all the different ios8s but still no look u ring them up still no help! !!

  213. Marci says:

    Updated ipad 2 to ios 8.0.2. The ipad now rejects the four digit passcode needed to reopen. I know the passcode is correct but because I’ve tried to re-enter it a number of times ipad keeps disabling for a period of time. C’mon Apple, I’m not the only one with a useless device b/c of this ios 8 DOWNgrade. You did it you should fix it!

  214. Rex Hunter says:

    Since I upgraded two IPad 3s and two iPhone 5s to ios 8.02, most of the YouTube videos and videos from other sites will not load or run on any other of these devices. There does not appear to be a problem with my wireless router or wifi otherwise because one laptop running Windows 7 runs these same videos without any difficulty. I have plenty of bandwidth (around 30 mbps) and there is no difference regardless of how many devices are connected. It also occurs at my office and with the wifi connection there also where I have no problem with the same Windows 7 laptop. I am disappointed with Apple and their response to this problem, thus far. FYI, I am located in the USA; in case that is important to anyone tracking this problem.

  215. T says:

    AGH!!! This is frustrating!!! Still delayed group texts. My phone keeps freezing up n acting crazy. Can’t answer calls 1/2 the time. Keep having to turn it off n on just to get it to work. App are messing up saying no connection the screen just goes black on some apps. I ordered the iphone6 which will b here soon but if this is the operating system on it might have to trade it for something different! I loved my phone but not so much at the moment 😕 please fix the update, I really don’t want an android!

  216. Steveo says:

    I am so angry at apples latest control techniques! My HDMI cable that I used for 2 years to connect my Apple iPad to the TV, no longer works! This is since the latest update ios8, I am due a new iPad and I was interested in the iPhone 6, I have had enough of their constant changing things to suit their own greed , I will now be looking at other more custermer satisfactory directed brands, I will not buy anything else with the apple brand on it.

    APPLE you are going to be the losers ! Stop pissing customers off !!

    A very dissatisfied customer

  217. M says:

    IPad mini with retina battery draining. Charged all night so I began with 100% and with 2 hours of total use (plain old Internet surfing) I’m down to 18%. My screen brightness is set to about 40%. This is UGLY and will never buy another Apple item.

  218. Patt says:

    Cannot install latest update on my Ipad because it takes up too much room. Will not remove what I already have on my Ipad because there is no sense in having the Ipad if cannot get what I want and enjoy! But, now most of my programs will not work right anyway so………will look into a different company! Too bad, did really like Apple…….

  219. Lisa EriksonRiggs says:

    I’ve tried downloading the 8.0.2 update to my iPad 3 a few times. It freezes at the “Agree” screen and never progresses any further. Also, most of my app icons have been replaced with a generic pattern.

    1. Lisa EriksonRiggs says:

      Today, I received notification that version 8.1 is available, but am having the same exact issue when I try to download – it freezes at the “Agree” screen once again. Ridiculous!

    Since installing IOS 8.0.2 on iPhone the calendar on the phone dose not sync with newly added events. Is occurs both if the new event is created on the PC or if it is created on the iPhone doesn’t sync back to the PC calendar. Very frustrating.

  221. Mgtjoker says:

    It sucks and now I can’t revert to 7. This is bs. Apple dropped the ball on this. I haven’t been able to use my iPad for 3 days. START SIGNING OFF ON 7.1.2 AGAIN SO I CAN USE MY IPAD!

  222. Steve Steven says:

    iPhone 5; iOS 8.0.2. google map is freezing, calendar within the notification center doesn’t update the meetings, sometimes I can not go back from the phone menu when I push the home button, high power consumption

  223. n.raman nambiar says:

    apple ipad when updated to ios 8.02 iam facing problem , the ipad battery not charging, when connected to power battery logo as ell apple logo comes .even when pressed the control buttons ipad not working what is remidy for this

  224. Gez Ball says:

    Wi fi issues on updating to ios8 and then the ios8.0.2 update apple support sent me to touchwood store and replaced my ipad air where they reloade ios8.0.2 they assured me it would be fine,nope, same issue. Replaced ipad again and kept ios7.1.2 no problems! To a man they all insisted they had not heard of any issue regarding connectivity on ios8…. Someone is not telling the truth!

  225. Amanda says:

    My iPad two keeps losing connection with my provider (no service is displayed ). I only get it back by turning my iPad off and then on again. Really frustrating as I have to do this up to five times a day.

  226. LK says:

    On My Ipad3 8.0.2 gets to 2% left on updating and crashes ipad- there’s enough room on the ipad too… not sure what
    the problem is, I have even looked on the interwebs!

  227. ttg says:

    Camera freezes up at times in 8.0.2. Nothing you can press or click will fix it. I have to totally reset my iphone 5C to fix the problem. I try to remember to totally close programs when I am finished, so I don’t think this is the problem.

  228. Ron says:

    Ios8.02 will not airplay (mirror) to appletv anymore from ipad2. Also looses ability to do gestures without clicking settings gestures on/off/on. Really sick of the apple updates fouling up what was working.

  229. Dee says:

    Updated my phone a few days again and everything was fine. Then slowly I started noticing the glitches. Everytime I tried to do anything on my phone the iCloud sign in box would pop up, prompting me for my password. I tried to enter it, even though I was already signed in but before I could the same box would pop up again. This box popped up once every few seconds and after a while I just put my phone down. Now when I press the home button all I see is a blurred version of my wallpaper, kinda how it looks when you make a phone call. It’s been like that for an hour now….

  230. frustrated says:

    updated my ipad 2 this morning to ios 8.02 and the screen went blank then showed the itunes connection logo. when I tried to connect it ti Itunes it said it needed recovery. if I do this it will delete all my data and my games progress any suggestion?

    1. CheesecakeMelanie says:

      this happened to me. i tried to recover it on my mothers and my aunts computer but no luck for me i guess. and i do think it will deletr everything

  231. Winnie says:

    After update my new iPad to iOS 8.0.2. My iPad becomes lag. Touch on everything will wait for second to proceed. Just feel everything not sensitive anymore. I hate that feeling. Pls recover back as before. Touch everything more sensitive please!

  232. Lisa Durkin says:

    My ipad 2 hasn’t worked properly since ios8 & ios 8.2. I’ve had no 3G at all – its says ‘no service/ I am a social media consultant so my ipad is crucial to me! I booked in to Apple genius clinic at the Trafford Centre (manchester) on Monday 13 Oct. Apple replaced my Ipad 2 for free – said even though its out of warranty as its a software issue I have consumer rights. They replaced like for like – with another Ipad 2 & told me to upload ios8 again – as my new ipad has a 90 day warranty & they will fix if I have any problems. I was delighted at this point. I updated the new ipad2 to ios 8.2 & have had loads of problems trying to restore my saved back up – only 10 of my apps downloaded. 3G was working ok until today… so after 3 days I have the same problem on my replacement ipad ‘No Service’ – not happy, so i will be booking in to the Apple store AGAIN!

  233. Joanne says:

    My IPad mini seems to be working OK, except it is randomly stopping after a track when I am listening to my ITunes library. It won’t let me press the play button and after a few minutes it seems to correct itself. Really really annoying!

  234. Simon says:

    iPhone6 now completely bricked by updating from factory shipped ios8.0 to ios8.0.2 (via iTunes)
    Unable to restore phone: Apple suport blaming anti-virus software.
    Not good. Not good at all.

  235. Bernie says:

    I haven’t discovered any issues with my iPhone 5s since the upgrade to IOS 8.0.2, but I do have an issue with the mentality of Apple. They arbitrarily change the behavior of features that I use. The camera application is one of them. I finally located all of my pictures, but the format of how they have been reorganized makes it impossible for me to locate what I am looking for. Has Apple ever considered adding features as an OPTION instead of making that decision for you.
    Adding programs to my phone during the update is another issue. I have a JUNK folder for all of those unwanted and unused applications. Apple has ensured that you can’t delete them. They apparently know what you want better than the actual users do.

  236. palmettogurl says:

    I have a iphone 5s and an ipad mini since the ios 8.0.2 upgrade I’m experiencing wi-fi and texts problems on both of them. Today I’m only receiving texts on the ipad mini and not my iphone all of a sudden

  237. Carol says:

    I tried to update my ipad to iOS 8.0.2 via wifi but cannot due to insufficient storage space. I was going to plug into itunes and do the update from there…but after reading all of these posts…I’m afraid to do it !
    Whats the deal…should I or shouldn’t I

  238. Totallypissed says:

    Since I updated my iPad, I have experiences apps not operating and now I don’t have a full screen when searching the web. This is very frustrating.

  239. Jenny says:

    Ever since updating to 8.0 and 8.0.2, group messages only send as text messages when all of the users have iphones. The only way I have been able to fix it is to delete the entire conversation and start a new one. Easy fix, but annoying and disappointing to lose the message history. I also cannot fully complete a backup into iCloud saying that I have ran out of storage space. That can’t be the case since I have less on my phone now before the update. (removed pictures, apps I wasn’t using, etc.).

  240. Noah says:

    I have an iphone 4s and tried to download ios 8.0.2 and when i got to the apple loading screen it has downloaded about 95% so far but has been stuck there for about 4 hours now, ive looked all around google for anyone with the same problems but none seem to be popping up, If anyone has a possible solution it would be greatly appreciated.

  241. leslie Buntin says:

    I have an iPad mini and since the update to ios8.0.2 Safari is extremely slow, I can’t copy and paste more than one item. I have to switch off to clear the copy memory before I can copy the next item. Facebook takes ages to load and crashes often. Google also takes a long time to load, I have done a full system restore but it hasn’t made any difference. I’m considering getting a new iPad but not the mini. I also have an iPad 5 who’s battery is draining very quickly. When once it would last a whole day, it’s battery is low by t time and I really only use it for phoning (not much) and only about 20 mins a day on Internet. All in all very disappointed and frustrated as I feel like I have a defective iPad. What does Apple plan on doing??

  242. Bwa says:

    Iphone 6 connection continuously bounces from LTE to 3G and then no service. I seriously can’t keep a solid connection for more than 15 seconds. And my iPad mini user interface now lags horribly. If I wanted all these software problems I would have went with android.

  243. Paul says:

    I have experience my I phone 5 upgrade to ios 8.0.2 and was unable to sync and backup on the I tune since Sept. Can any one advice How should I resolve the problem.

  244. Someone who cares says:

    The sound on my iPad mini has been horribly effed up after updating to iOS 8.0.2. Like, there’s this sort of staticky-crashing sound before and after the end of every sound (e.g. a message, the sound of a screenshot, whenever I play songs). It’s actually hard to describe, but it sounds horrible because at first I thought it was just overly loud, but then when I tried to play songs on speaker the sound is really garbled and you almost can’t understand it. WTF Apple 🙁

  245. Nij says:

    IPhone 6/iOS 8.02 issues:
    Mobile connectivity often disappears – need to reboot phone.
    Safari ‘add to home screen’ icons come and go: either the correct ones or the default.

  246. Ranjan Maloo says:

    After upgrading iphone 5s to ios 8.0.2, phone hangs frequently. I then have to reboot to get it going. There was no such problem before upgrading. I think i have only upgraded my headaches and now envy others who have not yet. The Apple story book is looking a bit dogeared and tattered now.

  247. Dawn says:

    So far I’m not having any issues like those detailed below, my phone appears to be working at all times. However, and it seems a silly thing having read all the other issues, why can’t I ‘get rid’ of the red number telling me I have apps to update when I’ve updated the damn things. This frustrated me so much last week I logged onto Apples help system and a very nice lady basically talked me through taking my phone back to factory settings and re-installing everything (well nearly everything, took me a further 3 days to re-install my ringtones)…… it did work and got rid of the red number but I sure won’t be doing that each time I update apps. Can’t believe that Apple can’t get their own phones sorted…

  248. TKD says:


  249. Janss5 says:

    Am an Ipad2 owner, upgraded a few days ago to IOS8.0.2 and my iPad now freezes, I can’t delete email without having them return to the inbox as unread and accumulating. Have had as many so several hundred in the box. Can’t use safari easily it freezes or closes. The power doesn’t hold after its charged. Cannot easily access apps; they freeze or close. I am VERY unhappy and wNt to know what Apple is going to do. I am not in UK; in Boston, MA US.

  250. jaise says:

    I’m on an iPad 4th generation. Never had a problem until the update….now every app crashes and just returns to the home screen. My email app freezes…driving me mad. I can’t watch a film as it will just cut off mid way through and return to the home screen again…

  251. Apple says:

    Randomly unable select an email to delete or open since IOS 8. Very very slow internet , no response to selections. I use the IPad because it was free. Guarantee there will be a Windows tablet when this breaks(or I throw it in the trash!)

  252. 4S says:

    My Iphone 4S since the newest update freezes and lags all the time. The keyboard is slow, FB works once in a blue moon, when it does after a few minutes it begins to lag, then freeze then the screen goes black. The wifi works half the time, spotify works half the time. 3G is not recognized. Got this stupid update right after my power button has ceased to work, not been too happy with it

  253. Sarah A says:

    I have the iPhone 5s after I downloaded 8.2 my phones been out of whack. It crashes out, it’s super super slow even with wifi, the calibration is off, and it wiggs out when it’s on the charger. I can’t even message much lately because if I try to type a “A” it will type a “G” or something. These problems need to be fixed cause it’s hard to even use my phone anymore.

  254. ping says:

    Bought a new iPhone 6 worked fine for 2 days. Then started receiving messages saying “no cellular data connection” Ive checked with my user and there are no outages, I have gone through all the trouble shooting steps with my cellular provider and that has not helped. Ive done a soft and hard reset that didn’t fix it. Ive turned on air plane mode and taken it off that didn’t help. Ive tried resetting the network settings and that didn’t help either. The message comes and goes as it pleases along with the data connection. My service will be full 3G and ill get the message even with full LTE I get the message. This is really frustrating paid a lot of money for this “top of the line phone” and it won’t even stay connected to the data network. Please find solution.

  255. CanadaCindy says:

    Yup. Not happy. Updated to iOS 8.0.2 on my iPad 2. Now not able to sync iPad iTunes with PC Windows laptop iTunes 11 (the latest on October 17th). I want to sync the music I’ve downloaded to the iPad onto the PC for backup purposes primarily. Grrrrrr.

  256. Kat says:

    ipad was v slow after the upgrade (a week ago) and now Safari not working at all and some apps won’t load. It seems to be failing more as time goes on. Lots of problems but, please, suggestions on how to fix it??

  257. Peter Forster says:

    Hi. since the ios 8 updates my iphone 4s it has become not a pleasant thing to own any more, the auto brightness was the first thing i noticed, just does not work, and if you click it on/off it just dims in an instant, beleive me ive tried in different light situations etc , then when i use my battery doctor to delete junk files numerous times it tells me @ no junk files to delete@ impossible, before this update, i cleaned it every day and got at least 65mb of junk to clean everyday?.. battery life is down big time.. the phone will randomly beep for no reason, these are the exact same problems with my girlfriends iphone 4s also..? so it can not be a problem with the phone , they were working perfectly fine until the update, come on apple restore your reputation for being the best, ? why are you taking so long to correct these bugs? surely these should be tried and tested first.
    please if any one else has the same problems leave a comment.
    infact ive done two resets on both phones an nothing changed .. not a happy customer..;-(

  258. Saana says:

    I have too updated my iPhone 5 to iOS 8.02 and have started experiencing problems with sending text messages???😁😁 come on Apple sort it please!!!!

    if any1 knows of something which can make it work Again!

  259. Ron says:

    I’m using iPhone 4s and update to iOS 8 caused lagging of sound on speakerphone and handsfree. After clicking play in music player the music does play for several minutes, and then I have no sound for some reason

  260. Tim says:

    iPhone5s currently on 8.02. Phone will hard crash while not in use. Attempts to restore via iTunes fails with 4005 error. I took it into the Genius Bar at the Apple Store in downtown San Francisco. The tech was able to restore it and suggested to restore as a new phone. She confirmed problem did appear to be software related. Two days later the phone again has bricked and will not restore locally. I’m taking it back in, but extremely frustrating.

  261. veronikagrier says:

    My ipad 3 currently with 8.02. My non bought songs all got deleted and half of the songs that i even bought, i can’t listen to because it won’t let me

  262. CheesecakeMelanie says:

    i was getting the ios 8.2 update and right when it was done it just like shut gown on me. I held down the power button and then an itunes icon appeared with a charger and ive tried to restore it on 2 computers but it wouldnt help

  263. Dre says:

    I have a problem with my speaker/mic combination. At random, I am not able to make a call…hereby I mean that I am able to make the actual call, but I cannot hear anything, and the other side doesn’t hear me as well. As said, this seams to be a at random phenomenon (and sometimes after using the camera app)…..very very very annoying…..

    I have an iPhone6, 128 Gb, 8.0.2

  264. Wilsonje19 says:

    I have a iPhone 6 plus since I updated to ISO 8.0.2 my screen when I’m in Facebook or Internet keeps bouncing up and down it goes down to half screen then back to full

  265. Fuad Bashua says:

    i noticed my iphone 5s screen gos blank immediately after call. i sold the iphone 5s i was using initially bcos i thought it was faulty. until i got another one and still experiencing the same problem.

  266. Steve Webb says:

    Since upgrading to IOS 8.0.2 my iPad has become distinctly slower in almost every function. I have also noticed in genera settings (about) that my ipad is always loading songs, video and photos. I do not know what it is doing or do I know if it is related to the speed problem. Is any one else experiencing this and have you worked out any solutions

    1. Hooj says:

      Hi Steve,

      This could be down to apps refreshing in the background when connected to wifi. Try heading to Settings > General > Background App Refresh and toggling this to ‘off’.

      Not sure if this will help with the speed issue but should stop the constant downloading and certainly worth a try. You can toggle by specific apps if you find there are some that you would prefer to retain this functionality.

      Hope this helps and good luck!

  267. Kay says:

    Ever since I upgraded to IOS 8.0.2 on my Iphone 5S, my apps keeps canceling out which can be annoying but what is annoys me the most is that the Wifi cancels out on its own. Sometimes i would be on fb or on Buzzfeed and I don’t notice that the Wifi canceled out.

  268. Natalia says:

    My buttons are glitching! The home button works fine but if I want to increase the volume the volume icon stays on screen unless I lock my phone. I also cannot restart it, if I hold on to the power button all that happens is my phone will lock, no matter how long I press down.

  269. Shay-Lee says:

    I am wanting to update my software to the latest, but it won’t show the install button due to it says I don’t have enough storage on my phone! I changed my storage to bigger amount so I could up at and now have 20gb. I have rest my phone and tried to delete things and it still won’t come up with install button and still saying I don’t have enough storage when I have heaps!

    Can someone please explain or help me fix this problem and no how I can get to update the software!?

    Would be appreciated a lot thank you!
    Contact by this or my email laylahopegym9@live.com.au

    1. John T says:

      “Changed storage to bigger amount” “have 20Gb”
      Is that iCloud storage? You probably don’t have enough physical storage on your device itself. I’m running into this with my iPad Mini Retina with 16 GB and about 5GB free. Apparently you can bypass this if you connect to a computer with iTunes and run update, instead of running update wirelessly.

      Of course, from the reading here, you are still dealing with iOS 8 and that MIGHT be a problem in and of itself. I think I’ll wait a while to update!!!

  270. rekampam says:

    Similar problems as others, but mostly noting that nothing is smooth or quick anymore. Scrolling ALL apps (Apple on-board apps and 3-rd party apps) is very jerky since the 8.0 & subsequent updates. Try scrolling through photos or a lot of text for examples. Apps closing suddenly on theirs own. Everything, including switching between apps or even closing apps down, takes a second or seconds longer per function.

  271. Stupid update says:

    After updating to ios8 on my iPad air and YouTube half the screen dosnt show up and disconnecting Happends lag issues and YouTube is my.main problem I’ve looked my my cousins iPad Air it’s exactly the same as mine and the same bug and my games the keyboard glitches SO ANNOYING!!!!

  272. Hanhnibal says:

    Upgraded (or should I say downgraded?) my iPad2 to ios 8.02. Now I have no sound in aps such as games or in texting. Any suggestions? I feel like Apple has damaged my iPad with their $#%^% “upgrade”!

  273. exterminar . says:

    I upgraded my iPhone 5s to the iOS 8.02 and since then I have not been able to update my apps. I also have not been able to launch Twitter.

  274. Frustrated Apple user says:

    I updated my iPad air to iOS 8.0.2. Since then, there are random reboots; I have trouble connecting to safari; I can’t play safari facebook videos or load comments or share links. Sometimes facebook (safari) only loads a few posts, leaving the rest of the page blank. Some apps suddenly close. Until this latest update, my iPad air (only a few months old) was working perfectly. Now it is so slow that it’s frustrating to use.

  275. Rosie says:

    Since updating my iPad, even though I did a back up, it has lost all my passwords for logging into various accounts, all photostream has disappeared, many apps do not work. I really wish I had not updated. It has got to the stage where I cannot face the hassle of using my iPad now. No pleasure in it at all

  276. Ira says:

    ForeFlight, email, Safari, and various other apps shutdown and sometimes 4 or 5 times to get them running again. Cellular and WiFi speed very erratic. Crappy update.

  277. HattieBoo says:

    I updated my iphone 4s to iOS 8.0.2 and now i cant facetime my boyfriend who is currently living 300 miles away. He did the update a couple of days after me and now phone crashes when i facetime. Also apps are shutting down whenever they feel like it. Should have never done the update. This happened when i updated my 4 ti the iOS7…. Apple..

  278. s says:

    I updated to IOS 8.0.2 and now its a black screen with a charger and an arrow pointing to the itunes logo. Its not updating when im on itunes on my computer

  279. ramaesshanr says:

    I get Blue screen of death every now and then, irrespective of the application. I Updated and reset the device several times, no difference. It is unreliable and doing any purchase or bank transaction is risky. I have iPad mini retina 2

  280. Victoria Thornburg says:

    On my ipad2 since I updated to ios 8.0.2 my sound is all terrible, even when I put in headphones. The sound is very distorted and crackly.

  281. Mrs Nemo says:

    Iphone 5S, once update with ios 8.0.2 apps open for a second but close straight away, even the app store wont load and i’m connected to the internet. no issues with calls just my apps…..that I know of.

  282. JJ says:

    Iphone 4S, ios 8.0.2, text message sound not working but only vibrating. All other sounds are just fine and working as before. Tried to change to other from list and reboot but no help.

  283. John says:

    iPad 3 32GB. Since I downloaded 8.0.2, I have problems in photos with raw files as the photos will not scroll. I have to edit them, turn them into jpegs and then all seems ok. I have problems with form filling in Safari, my iPad now gets very hot and I get frequent crashes with my favourite apps.Other than that, it’s really good!!! 😉

  284. Cherry May says:

    iphone 5, after the update my assistive touch hangs/freezes then 2 days ago my screen started to have flickering/glitches. i did soft reset, hard reset but didnt fixed the problem. i even went to cellphone shop and they did screen alignment but didnt help either .. camera and everything is fine .. just the screen is blurry and it flickers ..

  285. Caroline says:

    My iPad is useless since uploading IOS 8. I’ve tried everything…. Now I have to swipe my husband’s iPad. Apple… You should be ashamed of yourselves.

  286. Allen says:

    iPhone 4s. On a visit to a friend’s house – he had just purchased a used 4s and asked me to help him set it up. That part was easy!! The iPhone suggested an update was available so we clicked on “update” and off it went, downloading 8.0.2. After several hours the phone was updated to the latest version but – NO SOUND from the internal speaker. Tried everything – the usual mute button, cleaned the charging port and head phone socket but it was working OK before the update.

    Tried a full reset – nope!! No joy!!

    I tried “downgrading” the IOS to 7.1.2 but I guess Apple had turned off the signing as I got the dreaded 1394 error.

    Come on Apple you either need to fix the 8.0.2 errors or allow people to downgrade to something that WORKED!! It shouldn’t be necessary to “Jailbreak” a phone to make your products actually work as they should.

  287. jd says:

    When I open safari using google as my search engine, my keyboard disappears after I try to start typing. Also, when I close an app, there is a lag in the app closing. Its like it goes into slow motion to close.

  288. Ss says:

    Wifi connectivity is horrible. My whatsapp takes ages to load. The Settings on the phone hangs a lot. But really been having the worst issues with Internet connectivity.

  289. laurel says:

    I e noticed my camera doesn’t work correctly. I get a mirrored like image when I shoot. It also goes to a square frame. Rotating does not solve it. I use my banking app to deposit cheques and the camera won’t work well within it. It’s NOT the app, it’s the camera

  290. Jerry says:

    Updated this morning on iPad II with cellular modem and T-Mobile service. WiFi still works but cellular only shows “No Service” in Texas and Florida locations, so far.

  291. R says:

    Internet connection on wifi has become terrible.. I’m on my own house next to the router and it has difficulty picking up the signal and keeping it. I am burning through my data because i think I’m on wifi only to find out it my phone lost connectivity. I know it is not a router issue because my computers work fine and don’t drop signal at all. I didn’t have any problems with this issue with my iPhone 4 before I upgraded to newest model. Apple needs to fix this quick.

    1. H says:

      To fix burning through data shut off your LTE/4G off in settings so once you disconnect you’ll know and you won’t see your bill shoot through the roof.

  292. Ronin says:

    My internet just stops working. Emails, iMessages all will not come through. The only thing that fixes it is a hard reset. Sometimes it happens when connected to wifi and other times not. I’ve noticed it happens when I haven’t used the phone for a bit like when I sleep or at work. I thought it was maybe a network issue but clearly this IOS 8 has got many issues. It’s a bummer.

  293. tam says:

    The internet wont connect on ipad air without doing a hard reset after update. Occurs after it has been sitting unused for awhile. Also keep getting message that mail can’t be downloaded – then it will eventually download.

  294. vana says:

    Ipad4: It looks like the ipad is broken. Copy/paste does not work, freezing while writing emails and deleting the draft when ir restores. Shutting down ipad completely and turning it on again does not help. These problems start after the iOS was updated.

  295. Me says:

    Ipad 2 has become really slow and crashes a lot now I’ve updated. When I am typing this the leters are ccoming up in groups about 10 seconds after I actually tap them. I don’t know if this is to do with the update but soon after I update,netflix started denying my password. Whether this is iOS 8 or a netflix update for iOS 8 I don’t know, but I do know it is really annoying. The crashes!

  296. amy says:

    after updating my ipad it turned off and when I turned it back on it shows the apple logo and then tuens straight to the iTunes logo and says I have to plug it in. once I did nothing happened and my computer hasn’t recognised the ipad even though this is the computer I always use when transferring pictures etc. I need my ipad, it has a lot of information that I want and need. I am now googling different wat ys of correcting this. its sucks really thst im spending this much time on a simple update.

  297. tianna says:

    my iphone 4s is glitching and it wont let me slide my lockscreen to type in my password does any body know how to fix this problem i tried turning it off but it wont turn off

  298. Valerie says:

    Since updating to 8.0.2, my iPhone 6 plus will not accept or send group text messages. Even for other iPhone users. Extremely frustrating. Not impressed with the update. At all.

  299. Adje says:

    Since update my IPad keeps losing 3G connection and sometimes it even says SIM card missing, I have to keep resetting network connections which is a pain. Also Safari is very slow and using keyboard shortcuts locks IPad up.

  300. Chopsy says:

    After a recent update my keyboard disappers after one key character is typed on ipad. Have to touch keyboard again. Very frustrating. Last update of two mins ago has not fixed this.

  301. skittle girl says:

    I have update my iPad on the 20th Oct 14, having lost camera roll on the previous update, now it keeps stopping when reading the paper or email or looking up on google, sometimes the print jumps around. Please Apple get it right.

  302. OMG! this may be the nail! I have had it. Update started, never finished…. i have been without a phone for almost 24 hours (only phone). I have spent all last night and this morning trying to erase EVERYTHING and still no luck…. I have no money, time or patience for this anymore. I am reclaiming my wallet, and my time on this JUNK… time for dust off those old phones with no fancy apps! Iphone 7 will probably come with hands that will slap me as it takes my last dollar! and Apple… This is not acceptable. Why would you roll out updates YOU KNOW HAS PROBLEMS? Rolling the dice with my livelihood shows me…. you do not deserve to be #1 anymore!

    I updated to ios 8 and suddenly ALL my imessages disappeared. Poof…gone. I was unable to restore them from icloud or iTunes. I am frantic, as those text messages were pertinent in an upcoming court case…I even paid to download the iPhone recovery advertised on this page and it was a joke. The only thing it downloaded to my computer was current text messages, photos, etc. This defeats the purpose…Why would I need to RECOVER the things I already have? DO NOT spend your money on this software. If any one has any additional advice, please let me know. Thank you!!!

    We upgraded my wife’s iPad Mini to the new iOS8 as soon as it became available, within 24 hours it destroyed the hard drive. The nearest Apple store charged us £162 to replace it with a like for like device. We would like to seek compensation as clearly Apple are at fault for releasing a faulty OS that needs constant bug fixes etc and one that overwhelmed the device so not fit for purpose! – any ideas?

      1. Sonic62 says:

        The iPad Mini was stuck showing the Apple symbol, the Apple store staff tried to reboot from a laptop but to no avail then diagnosed a hardware fault. There only option is a replacement, they know they are culpable as it’s no co-incidence it happened days after a new OS had just been released. The iPad was 21 months old so out of warranty. Faced with a dead iPad and a holiday due in days there was no way of arguing further and impossible to get an engineers report so we had to pay for an exchange unit at a fixed price of £162 there and then. If Apple were not culpable then why would they not say we had to buy a new one at just over £500. Under the UK Sale of Goods Act 1979 the iPad “is not fit for purpose” as it didn’t last 6 years, Apple now have the dead iPad and I can’t get an engineers report so how could I take on Apple – I am wondering if anyone else has got Apple to admit the iOS8 caused the hardware problem which killed it.

    1. Shamerica says:

      Same here with my iphone 4s! I was in the process of updating it when it just stopped and started saying “No Signal” at the top! I started the update process again in an attempt to regain signal then it powered off and now won’t go pass the “connect to itunes” screen! I can’t restore it because itunes does not recognize it! PLEASE HELP I NEED MY PHONE!

        I have the same problem. I updated my iPhone 5 to the 8.1 update and I am stuck in a loop. I try to turn my phone on, I see the white screen and the black apple. This screen stays up for usually about 10 seconds, and then it shuts off.

        I went on the 24/7 chat support with Apple and they actually helped me go though the Restore process (even when my iTunes could not recognize the iPhone). However my phone shut off halfway through the restoring process. Although the tech said this may be normal to shut off during the process, my phone is still not working.

        Made an appointment with the Genius Bar in two days, I am hoping I do not need to pay over $100 to get it fixed or I will be VERY disappointed. I had very similar problems updating to iOS 8 as well.

    Had my iPad 2 for 18 months fantastic, not a single problem. Upgraded to 8.02 and have been to Apple Shop 5 times in 3 weeks with one problem after another. Have to go yet again as IPad very slow and keeps jumping. I am so disappointed as I really loved it and told everyone it was the best piece of kit anyone could own.

  308. Thor-Erik Korsmo says:

    Can´t activate/deactivate calls to my iPad. On my iPad the Settings > Facetime > iPhone Cellular Calls is just not there!?
    iPhone5 and iPad2 on same Wi-Fi and both wit iOS 8.1

  309. Chris Bishop says:

    Ironically, the IOS 8.0 upgrade was working without a hitch, but when I updated to 8.2 the wifi button on my iPhone 4S turned grey, all resets failing to recover it. Now I have a new iPad air, 1 month old, upgraded to 8.2, which drops the airplay function at least twice an hour when connected to Apple TV when connected to my iMac, a problem never encountered previously when my iPhone actually worked with it. Of course, when I contacted the apple experts online, they blamed my faulty hardware, with no admission to guilt regarding the update.

  310. Billie Jo says:

    I have updated my 5c with the 8.0.2 and now I have a few problems… I have several updates listed and when I try to do so, it says you may not at this time??? My service is not as strong as before and when I’m on sites it will boot me off just like that??? What can I do to get things back to normal???!!

  311. Dzl Powad says:

    My iPad air is now as good as an android😓
    Apple, you owe me 10000 pounds worth of free iTunes vouchers
    Slow wifi, blank safari, rapid battery life fail.
    Bluetooth link keeps crashing.
    I run a 3GS and iPad air on vodafone uk and a 5s on three.
    I also run a iPhone 5 for my partner.
    I have been with you since day one pretty much and this is how you treat me!

  312. Kathy Severance Marson says:

    I just updated to 8.0.2 and changing from one app to another is sluggish. Also I cannot cut and paste. When I can cut and paste it is random. Sometimes I can and then I cannot. It’s wierd.

  313. Sheryl Pardo Cantor says:

    My ipad 3 keeps on restarting while im playing games.. I tried restoring but still same issue.. No changes..can apple still can fix this? I called apple store but they say we will try to restore again..

  314. Lea says:

    I have been trying to update my iPhone 5s but the screen went white and sometimes a blue screen flashes. I’ve plugged it to iTunes and it says that an error occurred. Its been with a white screen for the past 6 hours and I don’t know what to do 🙁

  315. Alison says:

    Ever since upgrading my iPad mini to iOS8 I have experienced problems with my iPad staying connected to wifi. I have updated the software each time the new iOS versions have been released since then and the problem is still not resolved. I can’t keep connected to Netflix and am now having problems with Amazon love film. I wish I had never bothered upgrading to the first iOS8 as had no problems before at all.

  316. Jeanne Eberle says:

    I’m starting to really hate Apple!!. What the F are they doing there?!?! Every single time ?I download a fix-starts another problem that’s new. I thought you were all geniuses there but it’s pretty evident now-and that’s not so !!
    Now ?I gave no clicking sound with my keyboard when I was trying to get rid of the oroblem of not being able to click ” on” anything. Total frustration !! TOTAL!!

  317. Ad0rabl3w1f3y says:

    Genius has not worked for me since the update and when I look at the device through the computer it tells me things are on it but if I go to the same file on the ipod itself they do not exist.

  318. AnnoyedAppleUser says:

    Received nothing but problems since receiving this 6 Plus mobile. Thought latest update would fix problems but it has brought on new ones. I’m now unable to have the option to delete various threads within text messages. I go into a message, select which messages to delete only the trash bin symbol which should be on bottom left doesn’t appear. Only option it allows me to do is to delete the whole message. Whats wrong with you Apple, Samsung is seriously looking more appealing.

    My iPad 3 got thrown into a loop and I just updated it last night have never had this problem before in my life my iPad has always been good to me even after 2 years

    1. dekacamp says:

      Same thing happened to me….now I can’t even get it into Recovery Mode to restart….and will not open just keeps going back to the Apple symbol and then to the screen for passcode, Apple Screen, passcode screen….over and over and over.

  320. Willie Vickers says:

    I updated my IPad 2 now I can’t access any data or even use my I pad. It keeps crashing n it cycles through but it never completely loads. I can’t even use it now.

  321. deanna6363 says:

    I just updated my iPad 2 and now it won’t even open. All I get is a blank screen. When I held down the home button and the on button at the same time I get a blank white screen for a few seconds and then it all goes black.

  322. Sam says:

    When I connect my Apple Wireless Keyboard to my iPad and try to type on Pages, there’s alot of lag and the letters/key sometimes repeat when I only press them once – Running on an iPad 4, with iOS 8.1.

  323. Christina Tennant says:

    I’ve just updated my Iphone to IOS 8.02 and for some reason it isn’t allowing me to switch my wifi on, every time I press the wifi button it freezes and sends me back to the home page. Any ideas?

  324. kathi says:

    After an update to IOS8.02 I cannot switch on my wifi. The toggle appears to be stuck. didn’t really want to spend all Sunday trying to fix it. Get your act together Apple

  325. lel123 says:

    I have iphone 5s and updated and now if I take a picture and send it on imessage, then go to take another one the camera just displays a black screen! Took it to the shop and all I was told is it is probably a problem with the update and I will have to wait for the next update to fix it :o(

  326. nat says:

    I have a keep safe app and since the update it don’t let me use the app. It closes before I can unlock it. Now i cant see any of my pictures or get any off of it.

  327. oscar says:

    I updated my Iphone 4 to iOS 7.1.2 through my phone. I let it restart and all but now im having issues where it turns off and on and off and on continuously. Not once in a while but on after off after on after on. ive tried letting the battery drain but when the battery charges it does the same thing. ive tried the reboot technique but it shuts down and does the same thing all over.

  328. Catherine says:

    i updated my iphone 5s to the newest ios8 yesterday, its was working fine until this afternoon around 7 pm. the screen just froze , i cant slide to unocked ,or even answering phone calls, i try turning it off by using the lock button and the volume button press together at the same time. it switch off then turn back on , but still i could not use your touch screen.

  329. cookie says:

    I have mini iPad. Since the new upgrade my charging cord stop working. It was working before the new 8.0 upgrade series. I will never buy a iPhone too many issues. You buy a cord it says this accessories may not work…..Apple original cord is a piece of crap. It’s too short and the quality is horrible. I have never had issues with my Samsung cord. Really Apple stop ripping people off!

  330. Maresydoats says:

    So bad- esp my iPad. My 5S phone has never worked correctly since the 7 updates so I’m used to it. But I really rely on my iPad for business on the go, & it’s NOT going. Crashes, slow lagging typing, using Google I have to do all this maneuvering of the screen to be able to see what I’m typing in the search bar, & the absolute slowest page loading since my old colored Mac from the 90s, iI it just Apple that is so bad? B.c. I’ve been thinking of breaking up with them for good. It’s like a bad boyfriend- I keep asking, “why am I still with this company?”

  331. Junaid Fayyaz says:

    My phone has been updated on the latest 8.0.2. I backed up contacts from an iPhone 4 to my iTunes on my systems and restore them on my iPhone 5. Since then my phone keeps on restarting every three minutes and so. What is the solution to it? I’d appreciate the feedback from experts.

  332. Gussy Rikh says:

    Anyone have problems regarding shortcuts? Shortcuts I delete re-appear no matter how many times I delete them!! Clearing the cache does not work.
