    First to say: meeeeh will pass

  • No One Important

    I’m on 8.3

    • Kyle

      Too. But only on my iPhone 5. On my iPhone 6 and iPad 3 I’m jailbroken on 8.1.2.

    • Dani

      how are you on 8.3 can i enter to the beat too?

      • Jackson Grong


  • Okhoo


  • Miguel Alcibar

    I will stay in my JB 8.1 iPhone6

  • Mo

    Now we wait for a jailbreak…

    • Southgaia88

      Lol you will have to wait for the 8.3 first before you see jailbreak

      • Nathan

        Not necessarily. The TaiG team has said they have a jailbreak ready for 8.2.

      • Southgaia88

        but they will use it ?
        8.2 will be released soon and they dont want to fuk the jailbreak in 8.2 and use it instead in 8.3

      • XZavier

        How experienced are you in the jailbreak community? gosh…

      • Southgaia88

        A lot bro.

      • John Smith

        I say 25-30 days and we will have a jailbreak!

      • XZavier

        I say 1 – 24

  • Fanboy 

    So glad they released this now, over a month ahead of the Apple Watch release. Hopefully there will be a jailbreak by then when I will be forced to update for the sake of getting a Watch.

  • Walcy Carroll

    downloading/installing it now…on iphone 6+ , so far so good

    • Walcy Carroll

      I noticed once issue with replying using siri, i begin to talk it works fine. When I stop it, then begin to use it again, it does not work right..

  • Southgaia88

    Forget the jailbreak people. Jailbreak will only come when 8.3 releases. And it’s a if…

    • Johannes Mertens

      Thats the opposite of what TAIG says and I tend to believe them more than you.

      • The Truth Hurts

        agreed. I’m more inclined to believe a group versus a shirtless idiot

      • XZavier

        Taig is one person…

      • Southgaia88

        That’s clever :/ lol but if Apple will release 8.3 soon why they would release 8.2 jailbreak? To give the bug to the dogs and than Apple patch it? Think about it. Only if they have more than one bug they can use to jailbreak. But we see later who’s right. The shirtless man or you.

      • Billy

        A group of what? Expert Leftists?

  • Tobias9413

    Recently switched from my iPhone 6 to a 6 Plus that came with 8.1.3. Might as well update to 8.2 since I cant jailbreak anyways. Hopefully they’ll drop one for 8.2, though I haven’t used a jailbreak since my iphone 5.

  • Мирас Мынжасар

    Where are links?

  • How about fixing battery glitch? Jumping from 61 to 59 and so on??

    • Anmol Malhotra

      Not even fixed on 8.3 beta 2. So, forget it. Maybe iOS 10 will fix it. -.-

      • I know :/ I am on 8.3

      • Anmol Malhotra

        No jailbreak? 😀

      • Jackson Grong

        It’s not a software related issue, it means the battery is on the end of the life cycle.

      • Heitor Castro 

        Even on the iPhone 6 that I’ve bought 3 months ago? Ok, nice answer. I’ve seen this “jumps” since the first day of use.

      • Skyline83

        Not in iOS 10 because by then they will have so much useless crap implemented in it that they won’t know where to start and what to fix …

    • I had that problem, it’s typically caused by either a dodgy battery or broken charge cable as its not getting a true full charge.
      I replaced both and now I get a few more hours power out of it without it jumping.

      • But I’ve got a new iPhone 6 plus, and it happened on my 5s as well

      • Heitor Castro 

        Even though with this “jumps”, the battery seems pretty decent. The time it takes to go from 61 to 59% is the same it would take to go to 60 and the 59%. So I guess that’s not a hardware problem on the iPhone nor the cable. As I posted earlier, I’ve seen this problem since the first day of use on my iPhone 6 and it used to happen on my old iPhone 5S as well. That’s definitely a software glitch.

      • chris

        empty battery till 0. they full charge to 100% with no use. this will recalibrate the battery sensor

    • foad

      i have same issue and not fixed in ios 8.2 for me,iphone 6 64 gray,

  • hkgsulphate

    thx god they fixed the annoying GMT issue

  • HamptonWalley

    I’m going to install, the feature of turning off tracking of steps might extend battery time.

    • Timothy

      Only barely, if any. The motion co-processor introduced in the 5S constantly monitors activity, and I even recall some articles near the launch that discovered it was even able to track steps when the phone wouldn’t turn on due to how low the battery was!
      This feature is just to address privacy concerns. 🙂

  • Varun Soi

    Just waiting for jailbreak now all my hopes on taig!:)

  • Greg

    How can I download it if I’m on iOS 8.3 Beta 2?

    • Nate McKelvie

      Just download the file and do a full DFU mode restore

    • Nate McKelvie

      I tried to answer your question but for some reason it just says pending

    • Nate McKelvie

      Oh maybe because i put a direct link in my last comment

      Just download the file from the developer section of apple. Developer dot apple. I guess thats as much as i can tell ya link wise. Then do a full DFU mode restore and install through iTunes

  • 5723alex .

    No FREAK fix ?

    • chris

      i heard that they included the FREAK bug in IOS 8.2

  • Tony Trenkle Jr.

    I was gonna say we’re gonna have to hope for a jailbreak or everyone with an Apple Watch wont be able to jailbreak…

  • Yazdan

    anybody who updated to 8.2 final please tell about safari on ipad.
    How is it?Is it smooth? or still lagy and buggy?

  • idontknow


  • William Kosch

    When will the download links be up?

  • TwinSon

    Still waiting on them fixing Third Party Keyboard issues. Still on 8.1 lol I won’t even considering updating until that’s released and subsequently Jail-broken. I’d like the Watch, but I’d probably save some cash and go the Pebble Time route.

  • M_thoroughbred

    And still no fixes on iOS misbehaving when enabling 3rd party keyboards.

  • TheShade247

    The biggest iOS 8.2 feature is that it will probably drain your phone even faster!

  • Joseph Licea

    Is anyone else getting the status bar glitch when unlocking, it will go to the smaller size, then big and then small again. Been doing it since the betas of 8.2 and now on the official release.

  • GuyBey0ndC00L

    All these fixes and no lag fix for 3th party keyboards..
    Just Saying!
