    Anyone using a third party keyboard with 8.1? I am still having issues with it. Example: I re-enabled Swiftkey and it only pops up sporadically. Even in the messages app, half the time, I get Swiftkey and the other half, I get the stock keyboard. And then just now, I got a text on my screen while I was in another app and I tried to quick reply and no keyboard popped up at all. I had that issue with the previous iOS 8 versions as well. I've disabled all my third party keyboards for now and will stick with stock until they've addressed the bugs.
    I'm using Swype, and on 8.0.2 I only had the keyboard disappear on me once. So far since updating to 8.1 yesterday morning it's been fine, but even on 8.0 & 8.0.2 I was fortunate to not have any issues with it.

    I tried SwiftKey but didn't like it that's why I stuck with Swype.....and honestly I use Swype for most of my messaging but I go back to the native Apple keyboard as well because I do still enjoy using it too

    So far battery life is not as good as iOS 8.0.2, but everything else is working GREAT.

    Still having BT issues I think I am going to do a restore when I get a free minute or 1000
    I did a clean restore and my BT has been flawless. Even with Audible where ice always had issues.

    My battery on my 6+ is still going strong. I skipped 8.0.2 & went straight to 8.1 OTA, if that makes a difference. Only issue I'm having is I've been getting the dreaded "Unable to Download" pop up today. It only happened a couple times but I'm hoping it doesn't become constant.

    With Handoff make sure both devices are on the same wifi network and Bluetooth is toggled on for both devices as well. I could t figure out why mine wasn't working either but then I read an article about it and once I enabled Bluetooth it started working.
    My Bluetooth won't connect to my iPhone from the Mac. I called Apple technical care and they couldn't fix this matter. So disappointing

    You don't have to your phone connected to your computer via Bluetooth. It just needs to be turned on for both devices.

    I get that a bit. It's annoying, but I still enjoy SwiftKey. I have 4 keyboards, including the stock and emoji. It does get touchy.

    Anyone experiencing iCloud password login requests when replying to an email in the native mail app? Only been happening since I have upgraded to iOS 8.1. Very weird occurrence.

    I get it periodically sometimes when waking the phone not necessarily in Mail. But that's been since 8.0 for me.

    My phone updated on its own today and the voice command option (which I rely on fairly often) changed in that it now shows a blue screen instead of a clear screen, and it says, "Voice Control". It also changed in that it fails to recognize anything I say at all. I used to be actually impressed with the voice recognition function, using it to search for things on the web (mostly music) and call/text people by name (e.g. "Text Sheila, 'I'm at home'"). It now responds to literally everything I say with one of the following:
    -"You must enable FaceTime to make video calls"
    -"Genius not available"
    -*it starts playing that U2 song that's on my phone now for some reason*

    Also, I don't know if this is a coincidence, but it also takes at least twice as long for it show show up. What happened? This morning I asked it what a word meant, and it started playing music. lmao

    I'd seriously do a restore. I'd be completely overwhelmed at that point. Set up device as new perhaps?

    Forget the Genius Bar, you need to bury it 10' deep inside a secret tomb.


    Just kidding, sorta! Good luck getting it fixed, sounds like a total do-over.

    Go for it. iOS 8.1 is solid, and I recommend you set up your new iPhone 6 as new. Yes, it's an inconvenience, but the benefits, in my opinion, outweigh the inconvenience. 😉
    I originally set up my 6 from backup with no issues. i'm convinced setting up as new doesn't do anything but create more work.

    Just noticed a bug. My phone is showing the AirPlay button on control center even thought I am not connected to anything but my cellular network. Wifi and Bluetooth are turned off. When I open it, I get two iPhone selections. It's weird.

    If you use the predictive keyboard, you should not need shortcuts as much. I can enter the first 3 letters of my email address and the entire address shows up in the middle word spot. All you need do is enter whatever several times and the predictive keyboard remembers it. SwiftKey does a great job of that. The stock keyboard may too, but I use SwiftKey for the dark keyboard.

    Just thought of a "nice to have" addition. It's a little cumbersome to be using quick reply and have to reach all the way to the top of the screen to send.

    Having a "send" option on the keyboard would be handy.
