    Newbie here. Lon story short , I stupidly sold my 5C about a month ago, got an LG G2 and it was awful. I missed iOS dearly. I will NEVER use android again. What an awful OS. Anyways, I plan on purchasing a 5S off contract in March with my tax return but in the mean time my niece was kind enough to let me have her iPhone 5. Should I install iOS 8.1.2? iOS 8.1 worked flawlessly on my 5C and from what I understand , they are both essentially the same phone under the hood so would it be ok to update it on the 5? I really enjoyed the quickened of sending pictures on the update as well as a few other things but I've heard a few horror stories of iOS 8.1.2 on the iPhone 5's so I don't wanna mess up the phone or anything.

    Please any advice would be much appreciated !! Thanks so much

    It should be fine. I haven't really heard of problems with iOS 8 on the 5. Some people report problems with the 4S.

    Go for it. The latest version of iOS worked fine on my iPhone 5, 5S and works well on my 6 Plus.

    Go for it. The update fixes a bunch of bugs. Especially the one that was preventing iTunes users from purchasing ringtones from the iTunes app.

    That's the only bug 8.1.2 fixes.
