    I'm guessing sometime in the early to mid afternoon, if history is any indication. Will we have as much trouble downloading it as we did trying to order iPhones? ;)

    I think the Apple servers are going to be majorly slammed!! I'll try after work but if I can't get it to work then I'll just wait until Thursday after work.

    History on new downloads has shown me that the same day its released I always have major problems so it's best to wait it out.

    I have always updated as soon as it shows in my settings. The only exception was iOS 7. I intended to wait for reviews. But my sister updated and was calling me for help that night, so I went ahead and updated so I would know what she was asking about. No problem though. Took about 1 hour or so.

    They can install iOS 8 on my 5s when they pry it from my cold, dead, jailbroken fingers.

    That's what I used to say about my unlimited data plan. But when I could start saving a healthy $40 bucks a month, I decided that fighting for the "principle" of things was no longer worth it.

    I believe it will be about 6pm GMT UK but like normal the servers will be packed with people trying to download it. Might try every hour to see if it's available.

    LOL. No problem. The more places the better for that. I think I posted under iOS 8. Chris commented on it.

    I'm reading a few articles that's says not to select the option for iCloud drive when updating to iOS 8, especially if you use a MAC because Yosemite is not out yet. I have a MAC but hardly use it anymore. Everything I do is in my phone or ipad. Should I select yes for iCloud drive or not? Thanks for any input on this topic.
