I suspect you may need an article on iOS 8 fixes shortly. My iPad is having problems accessing the server since I put on iOS 8, and so is my son’s. Both my iPhone 5s and my Mac go online fine and the phone has iOS 8 on it so it must be a glitch in the iPad setup. There is already a steady build-up of questions online and this isn’t even mentioning the Shellshock problem. Have Apple rushed this out too quickly and is there a way back to iOS 7? I can imagine there will be a lot of very unhappy iPad users out there. Shame as this does not help Apple’s good name. David Simpson Paul Blachford says: We haven’t had any problems with iOS 8 on any of our iPads, so it’s hard to know what’s going wrong with your set-up here, David. Apple has been quick to release small updates and fixes for iOS 8, though, so hopefully that has solved most of the biggest problems. I should quickly mention ‘Shellshock’ though. This was the nickname given to a security exploit in Bash, a Unix command interface. First, Shellshock didn’t affect iOS, as far as we’re aware, and only affected Macs if they had some advanced Unix configurations active, according to Apple. Apple has since patched OS X to remove the bug. Given the nature of the show, it’s not really a surprise to see Apple products show up frequently on C4’s Grand Designs. Funnily enough, in the episode in which we spotted this MacBook Pro, an impressive round house with a central garden is being built – sort
of a smaller version of Apple’s new headquarters!
