Battery seems to drain very quickly, and sometimes the screen thinks I'm touching it in places im not. I try to scroll, and it will sometimes think I'm trying to zoom in (I tested the screen on a 5c, and it happened there as well).

Go to Settings -> Notifications -> Mail -> turn off Allow Notifications. Close settings. Then launch settings again and turn on Allow Notifications. I think its solve iOS 8 puch email delays.

Downloaded 8.1.1 on 23-Nov, my ring tones work but my text tones only vibrate, no sound? I've checked my settings and have rebooted several times.

Downloaded 8.1.1 for Ipad and now find I can't delete apps and the IPad freezes when I try. Powering down and back again unfreezes IPad but doesn't solve the problem.
