iOS 8 continues to cause iPhone and iPad owners grief

Despite recent updates to the Apple mobile operating system, WiFi, Bluetooth, and calendar problems remain.

The release of iOS 8 was more than four months ago, and since that time, the owners of iPads and iPhones have been suffering from struggles with certain important problems, such as Bluetooth issues, calendar blips, and a massive struggle with WiFi reliability.

The iOS 8.1.3 update is the sixth one that has been released to try to patch the problems of the operating system.

Unfortunately, despite the number of improvements that Apple has made to iOS 8, there remain a tremendous number of complaints from users. Among them, the most serious is typically considered to be the WiFi stability problems. That issue causes iPhones and iPads to periodically lose their internet connections, requiring the device user to have to disconnect from the network and then reconnect from scratch. When this version of the mobile operating system was first launched, a thread was started to discuss this problem. The current length of that thread had reached over 100 pages and had achieved over 500,000 views at the time that this article was written.

Many different iOS 8 solutions have been suggested in order to overcome this issue, but none seem to work universally.

That said, the calendar issue has been a challenge for the average user, but it has been detrimental to many employees and businesses that want to use their mobile devices as a part of a BYOD program. The calendar bug causes the events to be displayed to the user in GMT times instead of whatever their actual local time happens to be. As is the case with the WiFi problems, no amount of tinkering by users has come up with a solution to this problem.

As glitch as the WiFi is the stability of the Bluetooth in iOS8. Connectivity problems exist in these connections with everything from vehicle audio systems to keyboards.
