    Upgrades to iPad Mini 2 (Retina), iPhone 6 and iPhone 4s complete with no problems except I did not realize how slow the iPhone 4s was.  After updating/using A7/A8/A8X devices it is hard to go back to what I was really happy with a couple of years ago.

    I think it's silly that you need a wifi connection for something that says 28.2 MB OTA , whats up with that?

    Again, Apple really needs to separate iOS updates with the hardware updates and release iOS when it's fully ready and not half-baked & full of bugs as the last two iOS versions have been.

    This was actually something that was included in early iOS 8 beta release notes, then it was just removed for some reason.  Sucks.

    Downloaded 8.1.2 on iPad Mini Retina Display and iPhone 6 Plus; everything appears to be running smoothly.

    FINALLY they fixed the Select Copy Paste issue on my iPhone. So, going to update my iPads now as well.

    How is it improved?

    After upgrading from 7 to 8.0 this fall it took several tries to be able to select a word by a press-and-hold. The pop up simply disappeared after a few milliseconds, and when you were finally able to select a word the popup for a Copy also disappeared time and time again. I read on this site a s well as a few others that there were more people with this issue. You haven't experienced this?

    Depends on what you use your iPhone for and what your risk tolerance is.  If your iPhone is your professional lifeline and you can't afford to be off-line for a few hours, you'd be nuts (or just foolishly risk-tolerant) if you updated your iPhone in the middle of your workday just because it's available.

    Well it works just fine now on my iPhone. Haven't tried it yet on my iPad, and the iPad im typing on right now still needs to be updated. Anyhow, I'm not sure if I understand you correctly: when I press and hold on an image I get the familiar popup with the familiar choices (Open Open in new tap Add to reading list Save image Copy Cancel) so obviously you mean an URL as plain text, correct? That works at my end as well: press and hold, tap select, move sliders and select Copy.

    Nope, image url copy still doesn't work. If I long press an image I get two options: Save Image and Copy. Copy doesn't do anything so it's obviously not copying anything.

    This update does not address, what I consider to be, a fairly serious issue with Photostream.

     

    I turned off the iCloud Photo Library (Beta) because of the inability to stop ONLY videos from uploading.

     

    This was important to me for two reasons:

     

    1). I only have a standard 5 GB account and didn't want to have all that taken up by the occasional casual video that I have a tendency to take from time to time.

     

    2). Every time it uploaded photos and videos it would utilise almost 100% of my internet bandwidth, causing my whole internet experience to come to a shuddering, wheezing mess of a crawl. You can forget about watching streamed movies on your Apple TV or anything else when it does one of these uploads in the background.

     

    Unfortunately, utilising the original Photostream method instead of iCloud Photo Library brought it's own problems as well as there is a bug that causes Photostream photos to be deleted if the original images are deleted from the Camera Roll on the original device.

     

    How this got past beta testing I have no idea.

     

    This behaviour never used to occur and their are numerous complaints from others on various support forums who mention experiencing the same thing.

     

    I suspect this is related to Apple's decision to re-instate Camera Roll after it's removal in iOS 8.

     

    It still occurs with this update.

     

    The only other issues that I've noticed previously with iOS 8 is the text selection issue mentioned earlier (supposedly fixed), 'Multitasking Gestures' regularly turning itself off (a shame, as I frequently use the 'Five-Finger-Point-Palm-Exploding-Heart' technique to exit Safari and others apps to return to the Home screen), and the 'Change with Buttons' sound option frequently failing to adjust the volume and having to be toggled off/on to get it working again (this issue has actually been occurring for years). I am unsure yet whether these last two issues are addressed by this update.

     

     

    Fingers crossed, I guess.

    Are you aware if Apple still utilises information submitted through www.apple.com/feedback to address future software updates?

    I have a MacbookPro with multiple screen watching various charts updating automatically and suddenly without notice I realize the chart data is not updating or when I click on a website the information does not show up fast.  I often think it might be just a slow site or the net is clogged up and after a few more seconds I check the Wifi icon and notice it is inactive.

     

    I have to disable WIFI and enable WIFI and I am back withins seconds.  The recent patch improve the situation but it is still happening about 5-10 times a day.  I have not been able to figure a common routine but it keeps happening.

     

    I have bluetooth mouse, keyboard, iphone, ipad, etc...

    When I select Copy on an image, I can paste the image in a Pages document, so it is copying something. I don't know how to copy the URL of an image, except maybe from the address bar. I haven't applied the update yet on my iPhone 6.
