Apple iOS 8 Update Frustrates Users
Shortly after Apple unveiled the iOS 8, many users complained through their social network accounts about the common problem they encountered with the company's latest operating system, according to BBC.
Due to its large size requirement, which can take up 5.8 GB of storage space, Apple users have resorted to deleting files, photos and videos from their mobile devices.
"This update would be great...if you didn't have to delete half of the stuff on your phone just to install it," Twitter user David Roberts posted.
Another Twitter user, Daniel Zennon, joked about how Apple gave away U2's album despite the large storage space the iOS 8 needs, International Business Times reported.
"So apple put the #U2 album on everybody's phone and then tell them they don't have enough space for the #iOS 8 upgrade," he tweeted.
This is not the first time Apple users encountered a problem with the company's operating system updates.
Back in 2012, those who were using the iOS 6 also had to deal with the large size of the iOS 7. Like the current problem, they had to delete apps, messages and other files just to upgrade their operating system.
Aside from the size problem, the iOS 8 encountered another issue in the form of Apple's HealthKit service.
A couple of days ago, the Cupertino-based company pulled out apps from the App Store that were supposed to utilize the HealthKit for the iOS 8.
According to a spokesperson from the company, the move was due to an unspecified bug that prevented the apps from operating with the HealthKit, according to Wired.
The spokesperson noted that Apple is targeting to have the apps running by the end of September.
"We discovered a bug that prevents us from making HealthKit apps available on IOS 8 today," the representative said. "We're working quickly to have the bug fixed in a software update and have HealthKit apps available by the end of the month."
