It's already got problems, my yahoo mail quit working. It also appears to change the text message auto correct feature in some way. It's not as "smart" as it used to be.

Updated with iOS 8.2 and now the whole ipad is froze. I can not even reboot. Screen turns red when trying to reboot. Do you have any answers.

Looks like there's a problem with Apple being hacked or something… I couldn't update my apps and searched Google news. For some reason I can't copy and paste the link here but I'm sure you can find the articles if you do the same.

I keep having volume problems. Watching a video before the update the volume would go quiet after a minute or so and this still happens after update. Also the 2nd page of the weather forecast app is missing. You know the one were it says it feels that warm or chance of rain is that percentage. What happened to that?

Since updating my iPhone 6 to iOS 8.2 on 14 March, I know longer am able to receive pictures or images which are messaged to me. Checked messaging settings and everything appears good, so not sure what's hidden in the update.

Since the update my phone will no longer sync will my itunes account on my laptop. It will not get past step 1 of the sync and the icon constantly spins even after ejecting my phone. Has anyone else had this issue?

Update to my messaging issue. I tried a hard shut down on my phone, and that didn't work, so then it was recommended I try toggling iMessage off and on a few times, this did not work for me either. I then contacted local Apple Store and an associate told me to reset my network settings (settings–general–reset–reset network settings) and this did work. The only down side to resetting network settings is you do lose all my stored wifi passwords; however this was a small annoyance compared to not being able to receive pics in messages.

All in all, other than the blatant marketing of apple watch through an unwanted, new native app, I am happy with iOS 8.2 as it seems to have improved battery performance on my iPhone 6.
