I agree. Well, you can check for sometime and if this doesn't work, we'll try to figure what else we can disable.

i installed an app called My Data Manager and have been keeping track of the data usage daily. after the 8.0.2 update, the data consumption is less. nevertheless, the phone is under quarantine

btw, the new iTunes looks awesome

Most of the time I use WiFi, either at home or office, but my 3G usage was showing more than 850MB (of my 1GB limit) within a couple of days of upgrading my 5S to 8!

Like you said, auto update was disabled, so what consumed the data?
After updating I have been monitoring 3G usage and did not find any additional data usage. This is by controlling individual apps in the cellular data settings. I keep only the apps I want turned on. Only additional usage observed was that of battery when 3G is turned on which is unbelievably fast battery drainage. With 3G off, it works fine, same as pre-update. However I will be updating to 8.1 soon. Have to update and see if any improvement on the battery consumption.

Updated to 8.1. Battery seems to last a wee bit longer than it did on 8.0.2.

Its at 89% now and was at 80% at the same time yesterday with the exact same usage.

Ditto!! Downloaded My Data Manager to keep track of this. My data consumption has reached 2.6 Gb and my limit was 2 Gb

I think my shared photostream was the culprit for me as it probably synced over 3G. I am keeping close tabs on 3G usage though and have disabled whatever I think could've caused this catastrophe.

And my background app refresh is always off.

Just updated to 8.1 from ios 7 (having wifi in office helps) and the initial impressions are good. Battery drain seems normal with the amount of data downloaded and the phone being on display mode the entire time.

P.S. - Love the suggestions on the keyboard (Not exactly new, but still missed it when I moved from android to ios).

I guess my 3G data usage was attributed to photostream sync. I monitored the usage whole day today and it was just over 20 Mb with moderate data usage. Upgrading to 8.1 could also have helped.

The battery is holding up impeccably. On moderate usage, I still have 64% left after 12 hours of use. Way to go apple.

Folks, What would be the ideal things to do before I sell my iPhone to a stranger. Will erasing all the datas and logging off Apple iTunes and iCloud account alone will help?

Cheers!

PS: Even in iPhone 6 can notice a significant improvement in battery consumption on iOS 8.1

Default The iPhone Thread

I will need (yeah need... For wife, am sure most understand) to buy an iPhone 6 next month. I am hoping I can get some good deal through cash back or anything. Not wanting to buy from US or anything and would prefer an Indian warranty piece anytime. And yeah Gold color it has to be. She keeps asking for it but expects me to not buy for her and I am planning for a surprise.

The idiots at Imagine said this was because the backup data was corrupted !! They took more than 24 hours , but couldn't resolve this.
Finally , when I said I would share my experience on social media , the status changes to " phone is ready " within 5 mins of my last call with the customer care.

The problem still exists when I go there to pick up my phone. That's when I decided to do some troubleshooting and realised that this was a carrier issue as even sms' weren't going through.

I called up Airtel and for this resolved myself.

First and foremost, turn off 'Find my iPhone' if you have enabled the same on your iCloud account. Then, go to :
Settings-> General -> Reset -> Erase All content and Settings

This will wipe your phone. Should be good to go then!

After updating to 8.1, I still do not see the toggle button for EDGE and 3G. After researching a bit online, it seems that this could be a carrier related issue, Airtel in my case. Apparently, the new SIM cards that they issue are 4G compatible and hence this feature isn't activated while these cards are inserted in the phone. Anyone faced the same problem? Any alternate solutions?

I am facing strange issue when connecting my iPhone 5 to OEM music system of Honda City (Gen 3). Music system detects it as iPod but doesnt plays music. But after rebooting my phone it works fine. Now if I disconnect the phone and connect it back, same situation arrives. Music system doesnt plays the songs. I am facing this issue after I upgraded my phone to iOS8 (8 to latest 8.1). I done have any other dock, so cant rule out whether the issue is with phone or music system.
Just sharing thoughts to know if anyone else is facing similar issues.

Before updating to iOS 8.1 I remember reading that this new update "Adds an option to select between 2G, 3G or LTE networks for cellular data. Unfortunately I'm not seeing this after moving to 8.1
