    Default Will you download ios 8 today? If released

    Just wondering how many of you will be installing iOS 8 today if possible, or would you rather wait until all the creases have been ironed out? Thanks

    If possible, yes. I don't have a developer account though, so chances are I won't be able to.

    What to expect: If it does come out - it will be a developer only thing...and there won't be any back-door like there was in the past... but, we could always find out otherwise...

    I'm still trying to decide weather or not to install the iOS 8 betas... But I know for sure that I'll be installing the GM version when that releases.

    Do you think they will be staying with the overall like of iOS 7 or issue a brand new look again for iOS 8?

    It would be a bad situation if they overhauled the UI this early and there's really nothing wrong with the look of it now other than the parallax from hell.

    No, I would not install it today unless it was the GM or public release version. Also, since I plan on getting the next iPhone version, I prefer to use iOS 8 on it....

    Changes will likely be subtle - and in the form of refining things... there won't be anything like the differences between iOS6 and iOS7.

    I have a developer account so probably yes. (And I'm willing to deal with an instability in having a beta on my daily driver)

    In the past if you have downloaded another iOS before release with your developer account, have you ever found your iphone to be unusable?

    I have and no I've never had the phone be unusable just unstable with some re springs and some apps stop working like if they were using an API no linger available in the new iOS version. And just some general quirkiness.

    If you do, just be sure not to leave bad reviews in the App Store for apps that aren't working. It would be almost impossible for you to know whether the problem related to you running a beta or an unrelated problem with the app. By all means though, contact the developer and let them know.

    I continue to be amazed and this whole feeding frenzy. As I understand it, the purpose of what Apple calls “developer previews” and “developer beta” is to allow developers to begin tweaking and testing their apps to take advantage the new features and to test for compatibility. It was my understanding that it is NOT an “early adopter” option for people who have no reason to have it. And to see that some are looking into purchasing a developers account JUST to get the beta release baffles me beyond words.
