Quickly after the release of iOS 8, Apple released iOS 8.0.2. This version included fixes for several issues that were discovered after the initial release of iOS 8, but few VoiceOver bugs were included in the update.
For users of the oldest devices capable of running iOS 8, including the iPhone 4S, iPad 2, and iPad 3, frequent VoiceOver crashes have been reported. On these older devices, switching to the compact version of the VoiceOver voices eliminates most all of these crashes. However, if you have one of these older devices, and haven't yet upgraded, you will likely be better served by staying with the faster VoiceOver performance of iOS 7.

It seems kind of sad that Apple would rush out updates without testing these updates before releasing them to the public. About a week ago, I was speaking with a friend of mine and I said to her, that iOS seems like a huge beta for the public to get they're hands on. Sadly? I was right. I now wish I had stayed with iOS 7. While it had it's moments of annoying me, it never crashed as much. If it did, I would try to remember what I was doing and report it to Apple. In my personal opinion, I think Apple should've waited to release iOS 8.0.
