If you’re a user of iOS music apps, you may be excited to upgrade your device to iOS 8, which was released today.
You should generally wait to do OS upgrades, though, until your most important applications have been explicitly updated for new operating systems.
And multiple iOS developers are saying to wait to upgrade, because they’ve got updates for IOS 8 on the way, but the updates haven’t gotten through Apple’s approval process yet.
We’ve got a sampling of developer messages about the update below.
tl:dr version: Wait a week or so to upgrade to iOS 8 or some of your music apps may be hosed.

FunkBox 3.5, which includes iOS 8 compatibility tweaks, is in the review queue. We recommend waiting for its release before upgrading to 8.

…Recommending that users avoid iOS 8 until the previously mentioned Luminair updates (2.6.2 Universal, 2.6.3 iPhone) are released.

If you just have to upgrade now, developers recommend waiting to upgrade to iCloud Drive until OS X Yosemite is released.
And if you’ve upgraded already – leave a comment and let us know what you think of iOS 8 as a mobile msuic platform!
