If I Created #iOS8

OHEMGEEEEE guys...it's #iPhone day!! You know what that means...plenty of tweets saying "I'm tweeting from my new #iPhone" and Facebook posts bitching about waiting in line at all the wireless carriers only to find out they're sold out. 
I used to work in wireless sales. I don't miss days like this at all. Unncecessary balloons and telling customers we are sold out of phones for people like myself who are upgrading when really there are 3 on hold in the stock room for customers switching from AT&T's crappy service.

Not only is the hype of the new phone hilarious, so is the 2 plus hour update that my phone did a few nights ago. I love how Apple is constantly fooling us. "Preparing your phone for update" with a timeline that states "approximately 27 minutes remaining." I literally checked my phone 7 times before that update was finally done. What did I get?! A phone that lags when I open apps, and a Health app?! oh wow...as if I already didn't know I need to hit the gym. Thanks guys.

Now...if I created #iOS 8.




1. Let's give Siri some more options. Not only is that a silly name, but so is her voice. So is the male Siri...shall we call him, Sir?! 
Does anyone talk to her or him anymore? I sure as hell don't. Put Britney Spears' voice on it and make her Work B!tch! I would utilize Siri ...let's call her Brit all day errrrydayyyy.

2. I don't even know how to use the reminders. Apparently it's super helpful. Well, you know what would really be helpful? When I'm hungry at work and I got a late lunch and I don't want to stop at the store after work to buy something for dinner. How about instead of reminding me to call Domino's Pizza ten minutes before I leave work YOU actually call for me and do all the work? That would be nice. I've already done enough work for the day...you handle dinner Mr. $600 iPhone.

3. A keyboard that simply works. Who needs Swype texting? Go get an Android and quit complaining that you didn't have it on the iPhone for 4 years. At least there's no more "ducking" on my text messages.

4. Since the camera is constantly updated why is it not so advanced that I don't have to even edit my pictures? Do you know long it takes to find the perfect app to make the perfect edit? This is instagram people..serious picture business!!!!!! Let's lighten, soften, crop and brighten automatically. Thank you very much.

5. Last but not least. I would not lie to you. If my update was going to take 17 minutes or 1 hour and 33 minutes I would tell you. There's nothing worse than the feeling of being trapped inside your own home all cozy on the couch with nothing to do. And no iPhone. 

Let's hear it. 
What would you do if you created #iOS 8? Are you getting the new iPhone today?

  1. I'm an android person and my software updates take like a minute. I've never had a long update. Today I am feeling blessed because I do work in wireless and I'm off Friday and Saturday. Thank goodness.

    1. I used to be 100% android but then got an iPad and have been Apple ever since. The only thing that drives me nuts about Apple is the updates haha. My brother works at Verizon and was there 7:00 am-10:00 pm straight...yikes!

  3. I haven't seen many pics or posts about the new iPhone...at least not like when the 5s was released. I'm usually super bummed I can't get the new one because I don't have an upgrade, but I'm not this time. I updated to iOS 8, but haven't noticed any lag....yet.

    1. YES! Tell me what she says please! Chuck and I were debating today whether her and the man share the name Siri or not. They are one thing with 2 voices...kinda freaky!

  6. This is genius! I'm not getting the 6 because I got the 5s last year, and I didn't do the update because with the ios7 it shut down my phone...not cool! I am all for the camera that edits the pictures itself!

    1. It can be a tough decision since most times you are locked in to contract for 2 years. I'm sure you'll find something you like soon :)
