Wow, 7GB!!!  I have a feeling that I will wait to utilize this until I get my new phone.  Many of the apps are not very compatible with iOS8.  I have seen a few apps that I have on my phone over the past two or three days say that they are updated to handle this.

My wifi lagging issue appears to be completely gone. Threads are loading fast again and my messages aren't taking forever to send. Kudos to Apple.

 

Hopefully it stays working correctly

 

Edit: haha, even though it m getting a new phone in 1 day.

If anyone (with iPhone 5s Model A1453 or A1533) is having trouble downloading the IPSW from Apple, I have it on my Google Drive which should yield better download speeds, I can share it with you if you would like. You can either PM me or reply to this post with an email you want it shared to. If you don't have these devices, you can request the version you want and I will upload it for you. Just wanted to throw it out there if anyone is having problems. :)

Downloading now through itunes for my ip5.  Total download size is 1.67gb.  I've read that if you do OTA, the files are MUCH MUCH larger.

 

Wifi at my clients office is horribly slow.   :(   "74 minutes remaining."

People on reddit say the GM has the exact same build number as the public release...they didn't make any changes?

The GM is the final version. Anything else that comes up that needs to be fixed will be done through 8.X.X (which we already know will happen to enable some features like continuity).

There are some differences in the iOS 8 GM and the one released today. For example the shazam feature in Siri doesn't work on the GM build for some reason. And some apps seem to be "unhappy" with GM but happy with today's version.

 

-Just tried again and I stand corrected. It does seem to be working. I read on Technobuffalo that it wasn't working and it didn't work the other day for me.

Why didn't the Beta conversation get changed to iOS8 Released and a new topic get created for the Yosemite beta?

Because they were a shared thread from the beginning.

I wish Sprint would make a statement on it.  T-Mobile supports it now, while Verizon and AT&T will sometime in 2015.

I just got the email from SwiftKey saying it was available. Downloaded and it is awesome. It's what I missed about my Android the most. The predictive keyboard from Apple was good but not this good.

Progress bar on the phone shows about half way through - but it has not moved for a solid 3 minutes.

My iPhone 5S is laggy in the Messages app and sometimes when switching between apps. Hope it's just an initial release thing and it will be fixed with an update. It's a 5S FFS, not a 4S. So far the OS seems like a marginal update (more of iOS 7.2 or Jelly Bean 4.2 in Android parlance), when new apps take better advantage of the new features hopefully it will be better. I may end up doing a DFU restore of iOS 8 rather than a wireless upgrade-in-place; that may resolve the lagginess I'm feeling.

 

Swype makes it difficult to switch to the Emoji keyboard. Disappointing. Probably will disable it. Too bad the App Store doesn't do refunds.

I don't like how the camera app only shows the most recent pictures. The rest you have to either do an search or go to thing were it shows you the day or year or location to see all pictures.

ios 8 is so encrypted that Apple couldn't turn over user data even if presented with a warrant from law enforcement.

 

http://gizmodo.com/apple-wont-turn-over-your-phones-data-to-police-if-your-1636197341?utm_source=dlvr.it&utm_medium=twitter

That is on device data. Icloud is still fair game to law enforcement. Still a good thing.

      iPhone XS and XS Max are Apple's newest flagship phones, and the successors to Apple's 2017 iPhone X. They have the new A12 Bionic chip, improved cameras and faster FaceID, and come in a beautiful Gold Stainless Steel finish in addition to the Silver & Space Gray options. They are available in the same 5.8" Super Retina display as with the X, and the bigger 6.5" Super Retina. They are available in 64GB, 256GB, and 512GB configurations.
      Apple added Dual SIM technology to the 2018 iPhone's, with one physical SIM, and one eSIM. (eSIM feature not currently supported by Sprint, but is said to be coming later). These phones also feature IP68 water-resistance (iPhone X was IP67) which gives you protection in water for up to 30 minutes in up to 2m of water.

      Sprint 4G Rollout Updates
      Thursday, January 26, 2012 - 12:01 AM MST
       
      Many of us enjoy the freedom that rooting or jailbreaking our phones gives. Adding custom ROMs, removing “bloatware” or Carrier IQ, and adding additional controls are just the start. We knowingly take the risk that that we may turn our phone into a brick, and our warranty will likely not cover repair or replacement. But will we knowingly commit a criminal act to unlock our phones?
      Apple has claimed that jailbreaking the iPhone was in conflict with copyright laws. Given the amount of time they spent locking down iOS, it’s no surprise they oppose it. In July 2010, the U.S. Copyright Office eventually decided that jailbreaking and rooting was not a violation of the Digital Millenium Copyright Act (DMCA), as long as it was not done with the intent of circumventing copyright. However, this decision was not permanent. If it is allowed to expire next month, jailbreaking and rooting could be considered breach of the DMCA.
      Development websites like XDA started out with the public perception that they were underground gatherings of hackers and pirates. Since the U.S. Copyright Office published the finding that jailbreaking and rooting was not illegal, those development websites have become widely popular and have largely changed the public's perception. Even Steve Kondik, aka “Cyanogen”, creator of the widely popular Android ROM CyanogenMod was hired by Samsung.
      Due to the liberties that millions of us enjoy about to be removed due to the sunseting DCMA, the Electronic Frontier Foundation has begun a campaign to keep our phones free. They are undertaking a campaign to convince the U.S. Copyright Office that we should have the right to unlock not only our smartphones, but our tablets and video game consoles. They have a petition that they will send to the U.S. Copyright Office, and they are asking for Concrete examples of legal uses of jailbreaking that “will help show the Copyright Office why they should renew and expand the exemptions for jailbreaking.”

      Sprint 4G Rollout Updates
      Friday, February 3, 2012 - 2:00 PM MST
       
      The iPhone is something many people see as a status symbol. Many who have never owned one, long for their upgrade date so they can go out and buy the "exclusive" iPhone that they have been denied access to for years. Even some who had the iPhone, and then switched carriers, long to repurchase another. Yes, the iPhone is a well made smartphone with access to a loaded app store, and has many desirable features. But is it really better than Windows Phone, Blackberry or Android models?
      When Apple entered into a contract with AT&T, they remanufactured the RAZR craze and how the artificial scarcity of the device created such huge demand. The RAZR was a good device, and you may argue it was well ahead of other phones at the time of its release, but the other manufacturers caught up quickly. Apple used a similar strategy and it has paid off immensely. The iPhone is now available on the top 3 carriers in the U.S., but is still seen as a status symbol in many circles. As if only a few people have access to it. One could make a strong argument that the Samsung Galaxy SII is a superior smartphone, but still many customers line up to get the iPhone instead, because their inner hoarder says they NEED it, and the products perceived coolness and limited availability only add to the whole experience.
      The concept of artificial scarcity is simple. You take a product that is plentifully available to manufacture in mass, but limit distribution to a limited time, limited area, or in the case of the iPhone, limited retail outlets.
      The strategy has worked perfect for Disney. Why let your movies make the gradual descent to the $3.99 Wal-Mart bargain bin? Just keep "taking them out of the vault" and offering them at full price for a few months every couple years and people pull their credit cards out to pay $17.99 for an 85 year old movie and thank Disney for "allowing" them the opportunity to purchase Snow White. Oh, and you get to be a part of a limited privileged club.
      Another notable example is McDonald's McRib. If it was on the menu full time, many people either wouldn't bother going to McDonalds or would order something else, but artificial scarcity commands us to rush in to McDonalds and get several McRibs at a time because we won't have another chance at it for another year. What do we end up with, besides a belly ache and a reason why we don't normally eat at McDonalds?
      We should be immune to this form of advertising by now, as we are constantly inundated with limited time availability and special edition products all around us. However it is still alive and well here on Planet Earth, because it still works. Big time.
      Can Apple keep the air of exclusivity over its iPhone as it continues to broaden its distribution? Or will smartphone buyers move on to other devices? Only time will tell. But many doubt that Apple will play its hand as well in an era post Steve Jobs.

    • The last time I did that on my S10+ and I went back into that menu, the toggles had been reset to their default positions automatically.
    • Jumping off of my previous issue with VoLTE with Verizon customers. It seems like Sprint to Sprint HD voice works fine both for incoming and outgoing calls but with Verizon users, it won't activate unless I call the person. Incoming calls from Verizon sound horrible.
    • That would involve another lengthy merger proposal with the FCC and DOJ.   Another 2 years wasted.   A possible new administration...  IDK.... don't like that idea.    Who's going to teach them  how to run a network?   (LOL)... please don't say ....    
    • A solution to what exactly?  anti-competitive?  Well when it is to buy or not to buy, the only answer is not to buy. I guess the judge is considering Dish's prospective. Will they get the job done.  I think, with deadlines so near, and them owning spectrum for so long, we have to look at intent.  So far, with the lack of building anything, that shows pretty solid intent right there.  As soon as the carriers get spectrum, they toss that stuff up on towers asap. Look how much has been deployed for B66, B71, B14. Look how much 5G is already deployed.  Dish, in the last year before deadlines annouced 1, maybe 1.5billion for an IoT network.    I was actually kinda thinking about this. Dish needs to be willing to buy Sprint's entire network. Sprint essentially stays as is, minus spectrum licenses and postpaid customers.
