Hey guys!

 

Seeing that IOS 9 topic reminded me of a question that I've always wanted to know the answer to.

 

Would it be better to upgrade an IPod touch 5 16gb to ios 8 or to leave it at ios 7?

 

I've heard all sorts of things from it makes apps crash to it slows down your device to it takes up practically your whole memory, and i just want to know what would be best. Of course since I've never upgraded to ios 8, I don't know if any of this stuff is true. Sort of a "want to but scared to" situation, ha :) . Anyway, Your input would be appreciated. Thanks.

Reminds me of myself and a certain girl :D


I honestly forgot about the changes from iOS 7 to 8; but it's always good to have the latest iOS available running... If Apple says it works, it should work.

iOS 8 is now out since almost one year and it had an really long beta phase also it got some updates where bugs where fixed so it should be not a problem to update on an device which hardware is still not that old. Also it should not be a problem to update to iOS 9 which will be out this fall but I always recommend to wait a few days/weeks to hear if there are might still some bad bugs left ;)


Bye.

Alright. A couple things:

 

1) does ios 8 really take up 3GB of memory or is that not true?

 

2) @danol, i read somewhere that ios 9 will not be available for iPod touch 5. Is that not true?

 

3) @ansin, I agree with the "best to have the latest update" thing, i just didn't know what it would do.

 

But if you guys say that its worth it and that it has practically no problems, maybe I should give it a try.

Thanks!

1) It actually needs 4.58 Gb in total it's just 1.68 Gb more than iOS 7 needed.

But you need to have in mind that it might need some temporary storage if it needs you will get an alert then just delete some apps which have no files on your device(apps like twitter or facebook for example) or delete some old worlds in Eden you don't longer need.

 

2) That is not true iOS 9 will be available this fall for all iOS devices which support iOS 8 and that includes also your iPod touch 5(Full list of supported devices at the end of this page: http://www.apple.com/ios/ios9-preview/)

 

Oh and iOS 9 is a lot smaller than previous iOS releases it will just take 1.3 Gb of storage to make sure you have more space for worlds in Eden ;) 


Bye.

Ok one more question:

 

if I update to ios 8 does it delete ios 7 so it only needs the extra 1.68 gb that danol mentioned, or does  it need an additional 4.58 gb?
