    All,

    I am new to IOS and can't for some kind of reference manual(How to) for IOS 8. What I do get is outlines of what is new to IOS. I am unable to find anything on how to use (features and all) IOS 8 for beginners. When I look for IOS 7 I get outlines of differences from IOS 6.

    Any recommendations?

    Thanks,
    A.B.

    I got so burnt by IOS7 that I decided to only upgrade my iTouch at first. And so far, I am very pleasantly surprised. I like it a lot and I will upgrade my iPad Air.

    There's already a bunch of articles on iMore that can tell you about the features of iOS 8 and a quick walk through.

    I have noticed a bump in battery life as well. Hopefully it's not a temporary thing.

    LOL at the ios predictive text lines, when I wrote "temporary" it predicted "restraining order" - something I've NEVER typed. Hahahahaha

    It does bug me how apple added 4 more auto install apps you can't delete. IPhones don't have carrier bloatware like android does but they're starting to get apple bloatware

    Just stick them in a folder with the others. Not much you can do with them if you don’t want to use them.

    I gotta admit, there are some really nice new features, but the OS feels pretty much the same (which is not a complaint, believe me, I was totally satisfied with iOS 7). I'm a little surprised at how many settings were reset when iOS 8 finally installed though...things you'd normally need to turn off if you WANTED it off were set to off by default (OS transparency for instance).

    All of my keyboard shortcuts have been deleted. Has anyone had the same issue?

    I second that plus apps like iBooks I won't use that feel as bloat wear to me. I come from Android and boat wear really annoyed me on some devices.
    I only have a 8gb phone and was not amused to see I missed about 700mb after installing IOS 8, but did a clean install later (setup as new) and restored my backup and I gained some space.

    i like it ok so far, i'm really peeved that they removed raise to speak for siri so i won't be using siri anymore unless they bring it back but other than that it's pretty good so far.
