    iOS 8 been test on my 5S and it's sluggish it's not worth installing until a .01 version so I've downgraded it. It's always crashing.

    Since I'm 19 hours ahead of y'all, I'll assume I'll be getting it on the 18th of September?

    even though Apple says the new iOS every year are compatible with a lot of other devices, if it will run more smoothly on newer devices. I can't afford to get the iPhone plus since I'm in contract

    Just don't update until you get multiple feedback from here and other places if it worries you that much. It runs fine on my 5S and it isn't "sluggish." The 4S and 5S are two completely different powered devices. The 5S is ridiculously over powered.

    Not at all. I’ve been running the beta software since beta 1 on a 4S and a 5S. Didn’t notice any specific sluggishness on the 4S, and certainly not on the 5S.

    Is GM available to download on any device or do I need a UDID first?

    GM release does not require UDID authorization/activation. Just get it and go.

    You just need to be a dev to get the code from Apple. Or ...

    Is it accurate to say that IOS 8 although available to i4s, i5, i5s and i5c comes in a slightly different version tailored to each device? Would the same version that is installed on an i4s be the same version that's installed on an i6? Seems they would be configured slightly differently to be compatible to each hardware set.

    You have to download the version for your specific device. I'm running iOS 8 gm and I had to download the one for iPhone 5 a1428. There was also a version for a1429 which is cdma from my understanding. It will all be detected by iTunes and you will get the right version automatically once the public version is released in a couple days.

    That's what I thought so for someone to say iOS8 would run sluggishly on an older model phone isn't entirely true because each version is tailored to each devices capabilities.

    Gonna try to hold out a few days, never do tho ... I always end up reading about it upon 6pm release and then get to work the following day and give in and download!! Got a 5c and don't want to be stuck with a battery life complaint for a year.. Every update gets complaints of this however I've been ok all the while fingers crossed

    Will it be 6pm UK time again?

    It may still run sluggishly. But yes, there are device specific versions of iOS for each device. There are even variations of iOS 8 for iPhone 5S, depending on the actual model number.

    Good info. Didn't realize there were different model #'s for the same device. How do you find your model #?

    Take your case off, flip it over and read the coding on the back. Typically the model number is on the right end of the top line - at least for iPhone 5/5S.

    Couldn't wait till tomorrow, I just had to put GM. And so far so good on 5c. Love predictive tipping smilies are little more ... shining..
    Overall don't se much of a difference over ios7. Battery still the same..
    So far my biggest "don't understand it quite" is the wifi calling. Now is it something like viber call or is it just replace cell signal with wifi?
    With viber call I mean free of charge even in roaming or is it just swapping better signal and still us your free minutes, credit and ctr..

    For me it's not the six. I would like to have it , but it's not a Great Leap Forward,just a larger screen and sharper image. For me it's ios8. This will be a big step forward. I will wait until the accessories that I use ,catch up. IPro lenses, Olloclip, and Snappgrip etc.
