Here's iOS 8 Bugs We've Found Till Now

It is a normal thing to see bugs in the first public version of iOS 8 that Apple released from a few days ago. Although iOS 8 came with number of great features and new user interfaces feature, the iOS 8 also contain some bugs, we've listed it below...

A new issue spotted within Apple's iOS 8 health kit framework that breaks all HealthKit compatible apps. Apple was forced to ask developers to take down their HealthKit compatible apps following the discovery of the issue, after which the company gave a statement saying:
“We discovered a bug that prevents us from making HealthKit apps available on iOS 8 today,” writes Apple. “We’re working quickly to have the bug fixed in a software update and have HealthKip apps available by the end of the month.”
For those who don't know what is Healthkit framework, it allows apps that provide health and fitness services to share their data with the new Health app and with each other. A user’s health information is stored in a centralized and secure location and the user decides which data should be shared with your app.

Blue screen of deaths

Windows is infamously known for its Blue Screen of Deaths (BSOD), where the entire OS crashes, showing you a blue screen. Apple has made fun of Windows for this, but iOS 8 is causing a lot of BSODs in iOS devices as well. The device’s entire screen goes blue for a second, after which it resprings. Most of the crashes are happening on an iPad.

Here's a group of tweets:

Safari File Upload

One of the main features that Apple added to Safari mobile browser is the ability to upload videos, photos to websites, this feature seems to be broken in iOS 8:
Users have noticed that after upgrading to iOS 8.0 they cannot upload files from Safari. Sad but true. The new iOS version has a bug that renders sending files by browsers impossible. When you choose a file in a form on HTML page and try to submit it, no file is sent in the request. The browser indicates that it’s waiting for a response, but in fact the response never comes. 
Recovery Mode after OTA update

Many users are complaining that their device went into recovery mode after updating to iOS, forcing them to do a full restore via iTunes. This is especially bad for those who don’t have iTunes or iCloud backups.
Settings app crashes

A group of iOS 8 users said that settings app keep crashing from time to another without any reason

Status Bar bug

In some situations, iOS 8 shows two status bars, overlaid on top of each other.
Recent Photos/Camera Roll
There’s a lot of confusion being caused due to iOS 8’s removal of the Camera Roll. All your Photos are now organised under Moments, and Recently Added shows you photos from all your devices from the past 30 days. Some apps only show you your Recently Added photos, which led to bugs. From Dropbox’s blog:
We’ve discovered that Apple’s new iOS 8 introduces a compatibility issue that may prevent Dropbox and Carousel from properly uploading your photos and videos. This means that only the contents of your “Recently Added” album will upload automatically.
So still thinking about updating to iOS 8 ? Thanks God I'm on iOS 7 and with jailbreak :).
