Apple's iOS 8 Is Brimming With Bugs

Apple's latest major update to its mobile operating system was released to the public last week, and people have put the new iOS 8 software through its paces over the weekend.

Unfortunately, judging by the outcries from users on Twitter, iOS 8 is still far from polished. Many complain that the software is currently full of bugs that still need to be worked out.

iPhone and iPad owners that updated to iOS 8 are complaining about issues with third-party keyboards, Apple's own native keyboard, iMessage glitches, multitasking gestures, frequent crashes of the Settings app, laggy notifications, and overall sluggishness.

Other problems include reported issues with the Notification Center, the Twitter app, formatting issues with dialogue boxes, intermittent WiFi, and issues with the audio from various music apps layering on top of each other.

There is no word yet on when Apple is planning on updating iOS 8 to fix these issues.

When iOS 7 was released last year on Sept. 18, Apple quickly followed up with its iOS 7.0.1 update only a day later, and iOS 7.0.2 a week after that.

It's been five days since Apple launched iOS 8, however, and with a majority of complaints focusing on bugs rather than the aesthetics and look of the operating system (as was the case with iOS 7's introduction), it's likely Apple will push out an update sooner rather than later.
