Fraser Speirs: We Need to Talk About iOS 8.

"We have seen problems with apps not being updated in a timely manner. We have seen issues with crashing, devices rebooting, rotation glitches, keyboards playing up, touch screens not responding. Indeed I'm typing this while babysitting the full restore of an iPad that one pupil "broke" - through no fault of their own - while updating to iOS 8."

There's been a bit more grumbling than usual about the quality of Apple's software recently. And I can't help but feel like things have changed for the worse. Random crashes, system instability, background processes crashing and having to reboot to fix things. I'm sure I've said it before, but I really think Apple is trying to move too fast. They are already light years ahead of their competition, it would be great if we could all just stop and take a breath of air and look around and enjoy what we've got for a little bit. A little break until the next great thing comes out.
