iPhone 4S iOS updates yes? no?

Many of you will no doubt be running with a trusty, reliable, non-bendy iPhone 4S and will of noticed the prompt telling you iOS 8.0.2 is available to install, now before you rush to click on that download button read this;

Don’t bother

iOS8 will not add much apart from some notifications/quick replies to the iPhone 4S and will cause your phone to run ever so slightly slower, the new QuickType keyboard also takes up half of the screen space making sending messages longer than “okay see you there” a pain.

If you are happy with your iPhone 4S, leave it be, the phone won’t suddenly stop working, although over time you might notice your apps wanting updates that require iOS 8, once you cannot live without these apps, then take that as the time to upgrade, until then, stay put.
