    Hello everyone,
    Have u guys updated your 5c to ios8 yet? How is the performance so far? My friend has a 4s and it's like he wants to chuck away his phone with ios8. Should i just update my 5c or wait for like 8.01 or 8.1?
    Thanks in advance.

    The 4s is a slower device. You should be fine with a 5c.

    I have installed Swift Key. There are times when the keyboard covers the area I'm trying to type in. I would have to move the screen up to make it visible again.

    I hate to say, but after 24 hours use I honestly feel my 5c is slower and laggy. Also getting a lot of stutter when scrolling which I never used to experience.

    Can't afford to factory reset unless there's a way to do that and reinstate all my text messages without restoring from backup. Anyone?

    Been using it for 15 hours and it feels absolutely fantastic. No lags! I chose to update using iTunes. And yes, when my phone alerted me for the update, the ota size was only 932 mb but since I updated using iTunes, it used over 2.5 GBs so just be patient if that happens in your case.
    No complaints so far!
    Good luck! 😊

    Scrolling in which app? Safari, messages or any other? Working great at my end. Updated using iTunes.

    All that I've used where I didn't notice it before. Facebook, safari, messages, WhatsApp, pretty much anything. Will have to try a factory reset but trying to find a way to do that and be able to restore all my texts, anyone know a way?

    Well what I did was setup as new device then realize the key I needed was in the password app I was asked for to import the password app data.. Stupidly before updating my device I hadn't noted this down. This meant I then reset the device again only then selecting restore from an iCloud backup this restored my texts etc. I don't know if the first wipe followed by the restore made any beneficial difference over doing a straight restore at the start?

    I went to update on release day, Wednesday, but it said it would take 3 hours on my Mac. I cancelled and by that evening I received notification that iOS 8 was downloaded on my 5C and ready to install. I got up Thursday morning at 5:30 am and did the OTA in about 10, maybe 15 mins and it was complete. Running smoothly with no complaints here☺

    Just did the hubbys 5C last night as well.... So far he hasn't said a peep lol

    Same experience for me. When the new iOS is released, there is a huge demand on Apple's servers. Downloads, especially one this size (I think it was 964 mb) can take a long time. I've found it easier to just let it download on its own in the background when on WiFi.

    Thanks.

    I updated my iPhone 5 on release day via iTunes and setup as new, my battery life seemed much less considering I had a new battery put in at the Apple Store last month, and was getting almost double on ios 7.1.2.. BUT I think it may be due to the problems being reported under diagnostics and usage, they happen every 15 mins or so!!! And I have checked like 10 or so friends iphones and they ALL have the same diagnostic errors, that HAS to be using alot of battery to create those book reports, yesterday 9/19 I restored back to 7.1.2, yes apple is still signing, and will wait until ios 8.0.1 comes out.. Anyone else getting hundreds of these errors in there diagnostics?

    In iOS 8 you can find these if you go into setting, then to privacy, then scroll all the way down to diagnostics.. every phone I have checked so far is having this problem, and I talked to a senior rep in IOS at Applecare and he said it was a known problem they were working on
