    Ever since upgrading to iOS 8.x, downloading large binaries from the App Store after my iPad (gen 3) has been running for a few hours causes the iPad to freeze and eventually reboot. After reboot, it is able to download the binary that caused the reboot w/o a problem.

    Symptoms appear like a memory leak. Was hoping iOS 9 would fix, but it hasn't. I have about 6GB free and the big binaries range between 150-500MB.

    Any ideas of how to work around this?

    Download things in iTunes and sync to the iPad... I've not seen the issue you're reporting on my iPad 3rd Gen.

    I had an iPad 2 and have not experienced this issue. You can do what Keith says and it should work.

    Have you tried a reset by holding down both the power and home buttons until the Apple logo appears? A reset like this seems to sort out a multitude of low-level software problems.

    There is definitely something unique with my configuration, didn't encounter the problem until iOS 8.

    Very rarely connect/sync to iTunes so I'd really like to solve issue. I have rarely seen the freeze (iOS 8 only) using some other apps, but its not repeatable like the AppStore crash is.

    Is there any way to tell if I'm running low on free RAM and iOS is unable to free up enough memory?

    I've done the hard reset (power & home), numerous times in the past for this issue. Doesn't help.
