    Crazy question. Had to reset my settings. Long story. Now my iMac on Yosemite isn't sending text messages from non iOS users or getting them. Am I missing something in settings on my phone

    Yeah, it worked well for several weeks, and just stopped. At one point, it came back for a couple of hours. Really frustrating. But it was something that we didn’t have before. Still, Apple will get it sorted out.

    while I am sorry you are having issues I feel so much better- I thought it was something I did when I reset the settings- thanks!

    Major lock screen bypass bug I think. If you have a passcode or Touch ID enabled, one can bypass them by simply activating Siri and ask her to give you directions to any specified address or place. It will then proceed to open the maps app and then begin navigation automatically. If you end the navigation and press the home button it will take you to the home screen without having to enter your pass code or Touch ID. Anyone else able to reproduce this? Also I noticed that maps navigation on the lock screen is cut off at the bottom.
    Do you have a 5s with your fingerprint to unlock?

    Does "Hey Siri" work for anyone? I did a thread search. It worked for some in Beta 5 but not working on GM for me.. never did.
    It works for me. You have to turn it on under settings, general, siri

    The wireless providers have EVERYTHING to to with allowing/not allowing hotspot connections. If your plan doesnt include hotspot tethering, it wont show up in settings, AFAIK.
    Then why did I have Hotspot option on iOS7 before and now I don't ??? nothing has changed but the iOS firmware.

    some carriers block this feature unless you have a certain plan from them. i know in Canada that's not the case but i've seen it in USA.

    'Hey Siri' works fine for me.

    That doesn't seem right. You should be able to say "hey Siri" when the phone is plugged in to activate Siri.

    I FOUND IT! Thanks

    TO CONFIGURE HOTSPOT:
    From Settings -> Cellular -> Cellular Data Network -> *Scroll down* PERSONAL HOTSPOT (add username and password).

    Since I had nothing better to do at work, I bit the bullet and installed the GM, restored from backup and got myself going 2 days in advance. After a soft reset, entering the passcode seems a bit delayed. Apart from that, I am not trying to find anymore bugs.

    Just 1 question though....will I be able to install 8.0.1 OTA or through iTunes only ?

    You'll have the OTA option.

    Open the weather app and see if it needs location services.

    Go to Settings > Privacy > Location Services > Weather > [ALWAYS]


    Then open the native weather app at least once.

    I had checked all that first which is what was frustrating me. Looked again and there it was.... Must have been opening the app and waiting a bit for it to populate. THANKS!

    Seeing how Apple took so many features out of the GM that were previously in the betas, does anyone here think that the build that's released tomorrow publicly will be different from what most of us are running in the GM?

    What features in the betas aren't in this GM, according to you?? Except Shazam not being integrated in Siri, I can't think of any

    iCloud photos is kinda wonky. I've had some photos just disappear after turning it on. The sms relay, which I understand about them waiting for Yosemite GM. Also it seems like it's not optimized fully when it comes to battery, at least for my devices (5s, rMini). Makes me kinda believe that 8.0.1 will roll out right after launch
