Reasons Not to Install iOS 8.4 Right Now

The iPhone 6 iOS 8.4 update is performing well on our devices. That said, there are still some reasons why you might not want to install the iPhone 6 iOS 8.4 update right now. 

In the buildup to the iOS 8.4 release in June, we outlined a number of reasons why you probably don't want to upgrade to the software. Some of these reasons still apply and their worth absorbing if you haven't made a decision yet. 

The first reason to avoid iOS 8.4 is if you haven't prepared. We've outlined some steps to take so that you're ready for the update and its changes

You shouldn't install the iOS 8.4 update if you haven't been able to confirm that your apps for work/school are working. The last thing you want is for the device or an app to malfunction when you need it most. Do your homework. Check in with IT or read app reviews before making a move. According to some iOS 8.4 users, apps have been acting up after iOS 8.4.

You also shouldn't install the iOS 8.4 update while traveling (there's too much risk involved) or if you're not interested in iOS 8.4 and its changes. If you're having an excellent experience on iOS 8.3 or below and you don't care about Apple Music or the iBooks changes, you can take your time and dig into the pros and cons before installing.

    Anyone else seeing stability issues with Safari after installing it? Regularly closes on its own now – worse than I ever had back with Microsoft! Shouldn’t have upgraded :/

    Since the update I have not been receiving texts and have not been able to send many either, iMessage rarely work!! My phone also won’t sync with some of my Bluetooth devices. Very frustrating.
