Interesting to see (in the first example) that Facebook is a worse offender than the home screen.  I don't regret deleting the app from my phone awhile back, I saw instant improvement in battery life.   My largest usage is the home screen and Safari.

 I discovered this by accident on my iPhone 5s and iPad Air right after the iOS 8 update rolled out.  My phone was downstairs and my wife dialed, my iPad started ringing away.  Pretty cool. I did notice today (iOS 8.0.2) that I get the Safari icon on my Air if it's nearby while using my iPhone 6.  It works smoothly, not sure if it was there before and I just didn't notice, but it's working now. Side note - bums me out a little that my iMac doesn't have the bluetooth to...

 I just hope they haven't 'forgot about Dre.'
