Apple released their latest software update for iOS yesterday, and it caused a rather huge stir in the iPhone user community. Even Apple itself has been having issues.
The highly promoted new health service "HealthKit" has already been pulled
from the update due to rather severe bugs, and this certainly isn't the first time that an iOS update has caused users to vent their frustration at Apple. Every iteration of the platform that holds iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad together has had "teething problems". But now, users say, it's getting out of hand.
The iOS 8 can be as large as 5.8GB, depending on your device, and most users don't have that kind of space to spare on their phone. This has resulted in mass deletion of photos, videos and music in order to get the new update installed on their device successfully. Apple should know by now that these things cause major outcry from the public, causing the trend "iOS 8" to sit above "Scottish Referendum" on Twitter's trending lists.
Most media outlets, including us here at PopWrapped, recommend waiting a few days, and freeing up some space, before updating your device to iOS 8, in order to avoid any issues that could result in a loss of data. If you don't want to delete anything from your phone, you can always update via iTunes, as this doesn't require the update file to be downloaded to your device's storage. Additionally, if you do update via the settings on your device, the space taken up by the file will be freed up once the update is complete, so make sure to keep a copy of anything you delete.
Are you having problems with iOS 8? Let us know!
