    Hello is it just me or has bin the green icons (Imessage, Whatsapp, Phone) a brighter green colour
    iMessage and Phone apps look the same to me. Don't use WhatsApp? though.
    I have to agree with Karen. I don’t see any difference. (I also do not use WhatsApp.)

    It must have been server slamming, but my iPad took forever to download. My iPhone updated in less than 10 minutes start to finish. The iPad took about 45 minutes just to download.

    Updated my iPad2 via a "restore" through iTunes (my "Other" had gotten too large, a restore is the only way to clear it). I am not noticing any change of performance. Doing exactly the same with my iPhone 5 now. Waited until now so I don't get any phone call interruptions, this is my only phone.

    Is it a must to backup then restore as new then restore backup? Find it troublesome to setup new again. Will old backup 8.12 files work on 8.13?

    Or just click update?

    I just updated my 5s to iOS 8.1.3 OTA. So far so good. Spotlight bug is gone.

    I've done Carrier Update OTA and via iTunes... just depends on how/when it presents itself... and they're a good idea to do as discussed in that other thread on the topic you've posted on...
    Um yeah... Found that thread after I asked. I just never came across it before over the 5 years I'd been with AT&T.
    After I did the OTA I got a pop up while playing music on my Mac stating there was one so I just went to About on my iPhone and did it.

    I did the "restore" route for a specific reason unrelated to the update (too-large "other" category usage of storage). I was merely waiting for an OS update to kill two birds with one stone, as the restore will also update the OS. If you're not having that issue or anything else that a restore is the usual fix, then you can just click update.

    I'm hoping the sporadic issue of being unable to open Control Center from the lock screen has been fixed but only time will tell.
    I've never seen that on my iPhone 5 nor iPad 2.

    After updating to 8.1.3, iTunes informed me I had carrier update. Big Red iPhone 6.
    Mine too. I thought that was odd, because I had just updated the carrier settings the other day. Unless the update wiped it?

    That's the size of the update. He wants to know how much free space on the device is required. I'd assume it's still 5GB until someone can confirm otherwise.
    5 GIGABYTES of free space needed? Since when? I've done OTA updates for x.y.z releases with just under 1GB free. The only times I've needed to free more than 1GB was iOS 6.x.y to iOS 7.

    It's 2.05 GB through iTunes for a Plus in case anyone is wondering. Doing it as I type this. Darn VPN slowing my internet down.

    Same thing here, although you got lucky with just a 45 minute download. Yesterday afternoon (4pm ish) mine took over an hour, but once it was done it loaded fast onto the iPad. Right after it was done I hooked mine and then hubby's phone up, and a total of 10/15 minutes overall and they were both done. Very weird !

    So far everything is fine as expected.

    Is a "restore as new" necessary after updating?

    No, as long as your device is ruining fine or if you feel like "cleaning up" the install you just did.

    If you do wind up with little issues, you can do a back up, then restore as new and then reload your back up.

    So far it's been good to me. It's certainly helped the weird lag I used to get when using Swype.

    I can't complain. Yet.

    Very strange, as as I said, I only needed more than 1GB free for a major-version update. My iPhone is only a 16GB model (with iOS8 that leaves me with only about 12GB of user storage), for me to have more than 1.5 GB free at any time is an oddity.

    Just started this updated and I am hoping this fixes me losing my signal every five effing minutes.

    My 6 never did it til 8.1.2 and since that update I lose signal constantly. If I don't leave wifi on, which I never normally do, I won't have any sort of lifeline.

    If it doesn't fix it, I guess I'll be heading in to the Apple Store

    Update went fine for me. I didn't notice my phone responding quicker but I did see that Swift Key isn't as buggy as it once was. I was hoping there would be a fix for the volume problem with my LG HBS-750 bluetooth headset but alas, it's still the same.

    The update made the screen rotation a lot smoother and the battery life seems better as well on my plus
