    So it's however many weeks after iOS 8, and I still find myself using JB iOS 7. Apple claimed that 8 is "the biggest iOS release ever", yet it seems to have the smallest number of new features.

    I mean...

    -Adding voice to Messages is pretty neat I guess
    -Integration with other Apple devices isn't too exciting because I just have an iPhone and iPad

    And.....those are really the only new major features that Apple lists. Is that it? Or am I missing something? I really don't see any reason to upgrade to iOS 8 when it only has a couple new features.

    As new security issues are discovered, they will be fixed in the current OS version. But Apple does not offer security updates for previous iOS versions. Sooner or later, that's going to be important.

    I know I'm getting redundant but I was hoping for a keyboard like Samsung, didn't happen. But maybe I'm in a minority that uses lots of numbers in my text. Word select is useful but would be better if you could have an option to not have a space after your selection. I personally liked the older Safari better, but are getting use to it.

    YES!! It seems like half the time I need to delete that space to form a plural or possessive, or to add punctuation.
