Apple has pushed out one major software update and several minor updates since it first released iOS 8 to the public this past September. The latest version of Apple’s mobile platform, iOS 8.1.2, is far more stable and refined than Apple’s early iOS 8 releases, one of which was so bad that it temporarily bricked tens of thousands of iPhones, leaving them completely unusable for a period of time.

But while iOS 8.1.2 is indeed far more stable, there are still some very annoying bugs and other issues buried within the software.

Many people across the country and around the world unwrapped new iOS devices this holiday season, and they were met with some of the most beautiful and capable mobile devices in the world. But nothing is perfect, of course, and they will undoubtedly find some issues with their new iPhones and iPads in the coming days and weeks.

With that in mind, Tech Republic compiled a list of eight of the most annoying iOS problems, along with instructions on how to troubleshoot the issues.

We have covered all of these issues here on BGR over the past few months, but Tech Republic does a nice job of collecting all of the issues in one post that includes good instructions on how users might address them. Covered within the blog’s post are instructions that address how to deal with Wi-Fi connectivity issues, how to stop excessive battery drain and how to deal with hiccups during the app update process.
