The top of the range Gold Apple Watch, tops out at $24,000 AUD Now honestly, who in there right mind would pay that much.
I hate how they are charging $600+ for just a single Watch Band :(

I consider myself very lucky that my wife wears silver jewellery for the most part...

Most of us probably aren't in those circles, but I've met a remarkable number of highly-paid professionals who spend what I would consider to be excessive sums on a watch. Many say it is a reminder of the work they did to get where they are today, or that it was a gift from a loved one. They are often made of precious metals, so they retain their value -- and they tend to work for a very long time (with occasional upgrades or repairs).

Frankly, many of you reading this have probably "wasted" as much, or more, on a boat, or a sports car, a hobby, or a plane, or an ex -- :)

Looked at in that context, I'm not sure I see where the knee-jerk reaction of "OMG $$$" is quite coming from.

The gold watch is way out of my league, certainly. But I'm certainly willing to take a closer look at the less-expensive models ($1K and less). In terms of functionality they all do the same thing, so its really a matter of what material and band do you want ...

Lets see - yes chas I have spent the equivalent of the top of the line gold apple watch..... hum.... bought a farm, tractors, trucks, my avalanche - (opps! my idea of self-indulgance :$) etc.

And I get it. Just like some will buy a Rolex and granted it will probably last longer than farm machinery or my Avalanche will.

But I also look at the cost versus the next newest latest greatest new models. Eventually the apple watch gen one will be unable to upgrade. But those who will purchase a gold apple watch will not be concerned about upgrading or cost as they have way more disposable income than I do.

Each person has their priorities and what make sense to them. To each their own. :D

BTW: None of my "girls" (mac computers) are indulgences! (as she stomps her foot saying, "Not, not, not!!!) They are hard working necessities. ;)

And still waiting for some other person to update to iOS 8.2 and post results before I go for it.

I updated my iPad Mini2 this morning. Seems OK so far *Touches wood* :)


Nobody buys a Rolex expecting it to become redundant and non-functional in 12 to 18 months though.

Those of you who updated to iOS 8.2, keep an eye on your battery usage. It might be my imagination, but it appears battery drainage has increased even while the iPhone is idle. Just a heads up....

Also, just received an email from OS X Daily about potential issues w/ Safari w/ the new update - might wait a while before doing my 3 iDevices - Dave :)

Well, I decided to update my iPad Air 2 to iOS 8.2 tonight - very irritating that a 500+ MB download took nearly an hour (was cabled to my MBPro w/ 20 Mbps Wi-Fi) - I have two other devices to update and wish there was a way on these to save the DL and then transfer to the other devices - hate these limitations on iOS.

At any rate, my iPad seemed to be working fine after the update, and will now need to 'one at a time' do the same PROLONGED download of this 500+ MB update for my wife's iPad Mini and iPhone 6 - is there an better way? Dave :)

I'm on a fast connection (75/75) and the download took around 10 minutes which indicates that the Apple servers were probably busy. But to answer your question... you'll just need to be patient and do them one at a time. (I have 2 iPhones and an iPad.)

Hi Chscag - I know that it's the 'overstressed' Apple servers, but still an irritation when this should be a 5 minute DL even at my Wi-Fi speed - just painful to have to do this individually w/ each iDevice - will do my wife's one per day and just put up w/ the annoyance - thanks for the comments - Dave :)

Try it on a 2.5Mbps connection :(

At least it seems OK so far on my iPad Mini 2. Not noticed any change to battery life yet :)

I'm experiencing significantly worse wi-if stability with n band after upgrading my iPhone 6 and iPad Air 1.

ETA: my base station in a Time Capsule (the flatter model).

Not saying that this will help (and you may already do this maneuver?) - but after I do an iOS update on my devices, I always perform an additional 'Reset' (i.e. hold down both ON-OFF & HOME buttons until the Apple logo appears, release and let the devices reboot) - may be of use - let us know. Dave :)

I've tried rebooting all my iOS devices, as well as my Time Capsule and the two Airports I use as extenders. I'll see how they perform tomorrow (I get poorer signal in my home office).

Hi All,

I did the upgrade yesterday, about 10 min, I noticed today that my iPhone 5S dropped a few calls and "hung" on another. This never happens and I thought rite away about the upgrade. ( before I read anything on the forum.)
That's my 2 cents

Dropped calls might be coincidental, give it some more time. My battery usage has more or less returned to normal but I did turn off WiFi calling which does consume more battery.
