There will be a lot of people holding off from updating to iOS 8.1 for many different reasons. Some would be worried if iOS 8.1 update would be a repeat of the botched iOS 8.0.1 Over The Air (OTA) update. A lot of people are holding off from updating to iOS 8 because the do not have enough free space on their iOS devices, which are mostly 16 GB model or less.
I have the habit of updating my iOS devices using iTunes instead of over the air; which what I did to update to iOS 8.0.1.
Wait a few hours after the release of iOS 8.1 before proceeding with the update if you’re worried about some show-stopping bugs. Update your iOS devices using iTunes too. Make sure you have the latest version of iTunes.
This has to stop.
Doesn’t Oracle have enough money already? Why are they doing this?
Adobe used to do similar thing. Now Adobe offers Photoshop Lightroom when user downloads Flash Player. It goes something like this: “Your Flash Player is out of date, please update it and have a trial of Photoshop Lightroom to go with it.”
