iOS 8 “buggiest release ever”
Maybe technically true, but hasn't felt that way for me personally, still:
It had the same number of bugs as the launch of iOS 6: 8 issues fixed in the .0.1 update (which was quickly pulled in the case of iOS 8), and one more tacked on in the .0.2 update. Fewer bugs were addressed initially in iOS 7, but it had 8 to 9 bug fixes in its late October 2013 7.0.3 update. Over the course of their whole existence, iOS 6 had approximately 21 total bug fixes, while in iOS 7, that number climbed slightly to 27.
Chronologically, these updates are coming faster and faster. If you look at the timeline for Apple’s iOS updates, some general trends start to emerge: Apple is rolling out updates to iOS a lot quicker after the initial OS launch. For example, the first OS update to iOS 5 was about a month after launch; the first to iOS 6, a month and a half later; while iOS 7 had four updates from its September 18 debut through mid-November. More bugs are being addressed through these updates.
About a month and a half into iOS 8: We’ve had four updates (8.0.1, 8.0.2. 8.1, and 8.1.1), and we’re officially at 23 listed bug fixes through iOS 8.1. But with iOS 8.1.1, which just went live Monday, Apple doesn’t site specific bug fixes, but rather a general “This release includes bug fixes, increased stability and performance improvements for iPad 2 and iPhone 4s.” It’s not a leap to assume that “bug fixes,” plural, refers to at least two to three fixes, and that stability updates to older iOS devices could bring that number to at least five. That officially makes iOS 8, thus far, the buggiest iOS yet.

$15,000 on iPad apps. What?
The Sex Pistol's John 'Rotten’ Lydon has a problem:
I wasted – you’re the first to know this – 10,000 f‑‑‑‑‑‑ pounds in the last two years on apps on my iPad. I got into Game of Thrones, Game of War, Real Racing, and I just wanted to up the ante. And like an idiot I didn’t check myself. I’ve been checked now. But there's a kid in me, see? A bit of my childhood was taken from me and I’m determined to bring it back.
