What a surprise - iOS 8 has higher crash rates than iOS 7
posted by Luis D. / Sep 23, 2014, 2:15 AM
Unsurprisingly, older devices are more prone to instability. While the new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus are showing a 2.63% average crash rate, the iPhone 4s, iPhone 5, and iPhone 5s have an average crash rate of 3.57%. iOS 8's average crash rate on all Apple devices is 3.56%, but iOS 7's crash rate remains 2%.
Of course, crashes result from both unresolved stability problems in iOS 8 and buggy 3rd-party apps higher crash rates are common in the early stage of a new OS version. As updates from Apple start piling up, performance should get better. Additionally, some of the handsets that are being monitored are running older apps that haven't been updated for iOS 8, and are crashing more frequently.
About a week ago, we advised iPhone 4s users to hold off from updating to iOS 8 because many apps tend to run slower, and the menus exhibit quite a bit of lag. Perhaps now is a good time to repeat our advice.

I believe he was making fun of Apple by referencing design flaws with the iPhone 4 that resulted in dropped calls due to a poorly placed antenna. Apple refused to take accountability for the issue and their initial statement was that iPhone users were holding the phone incorrectly and causing the dropped calls. By referencing this issue, The_Godfather was implying that Apple would once again blame the user for something so blatantly obvious to be their fault. Another example of this was the recent massive leak of celebrity nude photos that were obtained from iCloud. Apple said that they were not at fault, though had they provided the necessary security features that are already standard on so many other major cloud service providers then this might have been avoided. Perform a Google search for "antennagate" for more details.

Safari crashed once. It's to be expected with gen 1 software. No biggie, the phones super nice though.

It's "you're" smartass. I haven't had a crash either, but this is also a new firmware release so I'd expect problems as I would with any operating system - the difference is that an update is due by the end of the month. At least Apple users aren't left out in the cold like Android users who are lucky to get any updates a year down the line from buying their new device. No-one here has any reason to lie about crashes, the Android guys seem desperate to claw at something negative though don't they? It's a funny personality trait that's showing up - Android users = negative, bitter, spiteful. iOS users = Happy with what they have.

ha ha ha ha. Man...oh man..Im gonna enjoy this one. You just showed how little you know about android with this one line "At least Apple users aren't left out in the cold like Android users who are lucky to get any updates a year down the line from buying their new device." Heres something for you and to anyone else who makes the 'update to android' comment. Updates, are, minimal. They are very..VEEEERRRRRY unimportant for most android users. Why? Because the entire system is 'molded by its users' This means that if someone wants a new 'feature' they can just download it straight to the OS. People who download overlays, new launchers, 3rd party apps, thats them downloading your precious updates whenever they please. Major Android updates like kitkat,L, icecream, etc, those are simply updates for the OS in general, its features, capabilities, and so forth are purely to the users digression to download. This means that android users DO NOT HAVE TO WAIT FOR GOOGLE TO GIVE THEM THE NEW FEATURES. Apple though, you HAVE to. You must wait for APPLE to say when you can get this. Android people arent left out in the cold, the created a community to play with new features and benefits whenever they please because they can. So, to anyone who is going to use the 'android update' thing again. Please...play with one first, realize what people mean when they say 'customized', it means more than just 'jailbreaking' and 'moving apps around'
