Wired says iOS 8.x is Apple’s buggiest iPhone and iPad update ever.
WIRED saw similar bugs on the iPhone 6 Plus. Other reviewers pronounced it Apple’s buggiest release yet, and Apple pundit John Gruber wrote “it seems like Apple’s software teams can’t keep up with the pace of the hardware teams” before talking more about getting stuck in an endless reboot cycle.
Is that an inherent danger is being an early adopter?
Data from app performance monitor Crittercism showed iOS 8’s crash rate was 60 percent higher than iOS 7 during their respective first months on handsets.
I waited a couple of months before getting an iPhone 6 Plus. iOS 8.x has never crashed, but a few older apps that had not been updated did. A recent flurry of app updates seems to have minimized it as an issue. Now it just works.
