Question is: who will get crippled by this update? I will wait before updating anything because GUARANTEED this will cripple at least the iPad 2, iPhone 4s/5/c and maybe even the iPad 3/4/mini.

Well... maybe that's why they went ahead with just 1GB of RAM, this way the previous gen won't be so crippled by any updates.

All you'll get is lag. My friends iPhone 4s barely runs ios7 let alone ios8.

its obvious this wil improve minor problems with ios, then force users to upgrade when systems go haywire. I doged buying a new iphone for wifey when this happened.

Family sharing is what I anticipate most. That's really cool.
