    Hello all,
    The member who has posted this topic is a very good friend of mine. I had advised him not to upgrade to ios 8 even when apple claim iphone 4S is compatible. Can anyone suggest him if he should really go for it ? Also, we both would like to know what is the actual difference between the factory installed ios and a jailbreak ?

    Have already seen several upset because iOS 8 slowed their 4s down a good bit.

    It is not recommended to update to iOS 8 on the 4/4S as the performance is terrible. You should at least have a 5.

    I'd certainly hold off, possibly things 'might' get better sorted out with a subsequent iOS 8.x.x update. Looking at even what would be 'missing' from iOS 8 , as well as the probable issues, it's not worth it now. The one thing which irks me is that iOS 8 arrived on my phone this afternoon, and now takes up a big chunk of my storage, a situation which I gather won't change until/unless I actioned the update.... But since the phone works well, I'll leave it alone !!

    I was a bit irritated by the amount of free space that was required to install the iOS 8 update. As it is a major update with a number of features, I expected it to be a considerable size but not what it was. As you said, that probably won't change but future updates will be minor and probably bug fixes.

    The over the air upgrade requires 5 gb clear. It makes sense to connect to your computer and download the latest iTunes and proceed with the upgrade it only requires 1 gb

    They didn't include the 4. It was left out this time.

    I suggest a full restore using iTunes as in most cases that fixes the issues

    That won't work. He'll still be on iOS 8.
