    Let the complaints begin!

  • Chocolatewe

    iOS 8 HYPE! I’m staying with 7.1 though 🙂

  • Rize

    Jailbreak in less than 1 month. Bet me.

    • Merman123

      I second this. Maybe 2 months.

      • Chocolope Jailbreakush

        Can’t wait!

    • rockdude094

      Eitherway not updating until a jailbreak is released lol

    • Six months would be my best guess. I hope I’m wrong…

  • Jonathan

    How’d you get the 6 plus link if it isn’t even in the hands of the public yet? 0_o

    • Martin

      Well 6+ is about to come out and lots have been pre-ordered so Apple, you know, had to make the file for it to be installed, and iDB gets the links from the developer portal -_-

    • JayPe1104

      -> Apple Dev Center

      • Jonathan

        Ah. thanks.


    downloading… u made my day iDB

  • Hashim

    Its the same as GM build

    • JustReboot

      Not sure about that. I have the GM build, but as I’m selling the 5s, I need the final to be safe.

      • JayPe1104

        iOS 6 and 7 Gm were the same as the Final version , don´t know if iOS 8 is the same case (haven´t checked yet)

      • JustReboot

        maybe – Oddly, after downloading the link from RedmondPie, it said the build was not compat – getting from iTunes (45min) 🙁

      • justme

        I noticed that in this public version has SHazam integrated with SIRI, GM not. So I hope this “release” have some fixes for some bugs that I see in the GM version
        1.when you are texting in landscape and get a notification, inmediatlly turn to in normal mode the notification still there so, you need to clear it from notification center manually.
        and the pictures of last friends (upper side in multitask screen) dissapear and appear randomly. imessage when you take a quick-photo sometimes freeze the UI.

        I think iDB will need to make a new post that people share the good and bad experiences about this update.

  • Max Rojas

    is CDMA global?

    • JayPe1104


      • Max Rojas

        what about if its both global and cdma?

      • JayPe1104

        It´s either Global (CDMA & GSM) or it´s JUST CDMA. To be sure check the rear side of your iPhone. (AXXXX)

    • GSM = GSM
      CDMA = CDMA
      Global = Global

    iphone 5,2 doesn’t work

  • JayPe1104

    I have the 5S A1533 which Version do I need to Download?

    • Install from iTunes.. It chooses for you.

      • Max Rojas

        I have an iPhone 5, A1429, is it the global one?

      • Mohammed Sahib


      • Max Rojas

        Awesome thanks!

      • Guest

        Do you have sprint or verizon? Verizon definitely can be used globally but the OS is labeled CDMA if I’m not mistaken.

      • JayPe1104

        Doesn´t matter, links are down. None of both, it´s unlocked.

      • JayPe1104

        fair enough, servers are down though. Thought I could download it here but it didn´t work. Checked the Dev Portal, noticed that these are the same links

      • I haven’t checked but normally when I need an ipsw I get them from felixbruns.

      • JayPe1104

        I remember that site from when you still had to selet the IPSW for jailbreaking. Answer: Links are the same // down

  • thomasloldk

    already down haha

  • Juliano Rosario

    VSCO integrated in the photos app?

    • Nabil El Hajjouti

      VSCO needs to update their app first.

      • VITICO

        mine just updated..

  • hkgsulphate

    iPhone 6: 2.2 GB
    iPhone 6 plus: 1.9 GB
    huh? o_O

  • Chris

    5S global and gsm firmware are same, correct?

  • KLau

    Anyone could tell me how one could know whether his/her iPhone 5s is the 6,1 or 6,2 type?

  • The Shoonchy 

    If anyone can help me on this, it says to login with two-step authentication, but I’m not receiving the damn 4-digit code, What the..
    Just to be clear: I’m in the setup screen, I have the trusted device, I have the Apple ID and password, It’s just not receiving any 4-digit codes?
    I can’t proceed further

  • James Gunaca

    Same build number as the GM? I noticed in the Settings screenshots of iCloud Photo Library it doesn’t say “BETA” in your “25 things of iOS 8” article…but I’m on the GM and it says BETA in that settings screen.

  • James Gunaca

    …for those of us with the GM installed, if we want to go to the public release do we have to do a Restore?

    • Zach

      GM is the public release. They’re the same thing

  • aHmaD

    what is the difference between global and gsm for downloading ios for 5s?

    • Milo Venables

      Download both and the iTunes will tell you if it’s compatible or not.

  • Milo Venables

    The iOS 8 update just released and how do I upload my photo from the share sheet to Vsco Cam? Right now only see Tumblr. Will there be an update??

    • Julian Gigola

      yeah soon!

    • Abdullah Safdar

      yeah soon!

  • nwn

    servers are down and my phone is bricked…YAY

  • Zach

    I’m running 7.0.6 jailbreak, should I restore then GM upgrade or go straight to upgrade iOS 8?

    • Jonathan

      GM and public are same build number, so it’s no difference.
      But I’d recommend restoring clean, and not from your backup. Jailbreak leaves trails of stuff behind in the backup.

  • ticky13

    I have the GM release from last week, so why does iTunes say my phone is up to date but my phone says there is an OTA update available?

    • Abdullah Safdar

      Update your itunes

      • ticky13

        iTunes is already up to date.

  • Sandeep Roy

    Noob question- I have a 5c White – part no. MF321HN/A & can’t read clearly on phone back, so which ipsw file should i download ? I think will need to restore as my 3G enabled SIM keeps toggling between 3G & E,maybe bad coverage, but SIM is new & not hand cut. I updated OTA from 7.1 Also have some scrolling issues – not smooth within Settings App. Thanks.
