    They should be able to see the crash data in the Diagnostics and Usage. Mine is getting full again (after a Restore as New last weekend) with a few native and 3rd party app crashes being reported. Safari also lags and stutters for me infrequently, but it could be that I have too many tabs open at a time. Let's hope that Apple fixes whatever is causing these problems in 8.1.4? or 8.2.
    That's another thing. These issues could just be software related and maybe fixed with future updates. I may just cancel my appointment and see if the updates fix my issues. It's not like my phone is unusable. It's just annoying to have these issues when you spend so much on a product and when Apple has been so good in the past with smoothness.

    You don't "think" it's normal? lol!

    It's not normal at all! By any stretch of the word "normal". Your phone is having problems that 99.9999% of the users on this website aren't having. You have a defective device...and the reason you're getting the responses you are is because YOU of all people ended up with a defective iPhone...it just seems hilariously odd that you would be the one to end up with such a situation given your history of posts on this website.

    At any rate, hope you get your phone issue squared away...this is an incredible phone that runs circles around my old 5S.
    I don't know if I'm just unlucky or something or just crazy. But I don't know if the hardware itself is defective or if this is stuff that's going to be ironed out in 8.2 or whatever.

    Kid guess that it is a hardware issue. Because after getting my phone replaced, I have none of the issues that I had before. My phone runs super smoothly now. So I guess it wouldn't hurt to get a replacement just to rule out a hardware issue.

    No. I just think you're overstating and sensationalizing it based on your history.
    I totally agree - and that type of user is primarily why I've stopped coming to iMore forums and others. I don't have the patience anymore to deal with people like that.

    The 6+ was the first iPhone that I ever had any problem with. The first one I had was possessed by a dead pixel and such an imperfection is more than I could happily live with. Best Buy swapped it out and this one has been flawless and smooth. ...as I'd expect.

    I, too, have a 64 GB Space gray 6+. I've had mine for 11 days now. Mine works flawlessly! However, I do agree with you about third-party developers not utilizing landscape mode.

    Guess mines the only one acting up then, I don't know. Maybe I am blowing it out of proportion, I don't know. It's not like the phone doesn't work.

    I attribute a lot of safari crashes to some websites. If I'm looking up some information and it seems like it may have good info the site can be crappy. There are so many ads and just junk on the web these days.

    The thing is I don't even know if they'll switch it out or not. It's not issues I can replicate. Like I said, a lot of it is just apps freezing sometimes, the phone screen not always turning on when hitting the power, and scrolling issues and safari crashes. Also when typing on the keyboard the keys will sometimes not register types and when you hit a letter and the it floats above it sometimes will freeze for a few seconds.

    How about stop pondering whether they will or won't and take the thing there and see what happens? If they don't swap it out then just vent your frustrations to Apple.

    I would definitely take it in. The things that you are describing I would say are atypical to the performance I have experienced with my iOS devices. Like I had mentioned before, I took my last iPhone 6 Plus in due to the screen not being responsive and they swapped it out no problems. The new device that I have is perfect. No complaints.

    So I took it in yesterday. They did there usually diagnostics and said everything looked fine. They opened it up and said it didn't look like any internals were broken or disconnected. So they put it in DFU mode and they restored the software and firmware. Although it did plug it in my computer to restore just like he did, I didn't do DFU mode, so maybe that is better?

    I don't know. He took a lot of notes and he said that I should try it out and see if this worked. If not, then they'll know its a hardware issue and theyll look at it from a hardware aspect.

    So while I'm a bit disappointed I didn't get a hardware swap, it does seem like the phone is acting smoother than before. I'll keep an eye on it over the next week or so. I'm mainly just tired of driving out there and wasting gas, ha ha.

    I guess the important thing is if your phone performs better. But I'm sure if them doing a restore doesn't work, and problems persist, you will get a replacement.

    I also brought up the thing about the NAND flash issues the initial iPhones 6s had, but he said that it only effected 128gb models and since mine is a 64gb, it shouldn't be effected. Also, since I got my phone in January, I don't think my phone would have been part of that bad batch anyway, right?

    What was the issue with the 128 GB versions?

    A wonky nand flash that caused crashes and stuff. Apple did stop using this though, but they're were initial batch units that have that weird flash memory. My confusion though is if it was only in initial 128gb units or if it effected 64gb ones as well. And if my phone would even be in that batch if I got it in janueary?

    I wonder if the one I had was a part of that batch. All is good now though.
