If you applied the iOS 8.0.1 update and your iPhone 6 or 6 Plus is now a shiny new doorstop, here's the steps (and the downloads) to restore things to the way they were yesterday.
Apple's Family Sharing in iOS 8 is something many users are eager to setup in order to finally deal with the issue of sharing purchased apps (and music and movies and more) with family members. Frustration has set in for some, however, when the setup process informs users that PayPal is not a valid payment option for family purchases. The good news is that you can set PayPal as an option after Family Sharing is setup, at least for now.
iOS 8 introduces Family Sharing, a feature that allows multiple members of the same family to share app purchases with one another using iCloud accounts. It's not entirely obvious how to link a separate purchases account to Family Sharing, but it is possible, and we'll show you how to do it.
A new version of iOS is supposed to make things better, but that isn't always what happens. Kelly points out some new and overlooked features that can help squeeze out more battery life.
Sure, Apple lets you choose your own keyboard in iOS 8, but it doesn't mean they made it easy to see how. TMO Contributing Editor Chuck La Tournous guides you through installing a third-party keyboard on your iOS device, and gives you a suggestion on a free keyboard to take for a spin.
Apple has started rolling out two-factor authentication on iCloud.com, as promised by Tim Cook. If you want to set it up yourself, Kelly explains how.

Apple announced (among other things) Tuesday that the latest album from U2 would be available on iTunes exclusively until October 13, and that it was free to all iTunes customers. Kelly explains how to get the new album from iTunes on a computer or a mobile device.
We know iOS 8 is coming, and we're pretty sure there's a new iPhone in the near future as well. Kelly explains how to technologically prepare devices for iOS 8 (emotionally preparing is a totally different process).
If you have trouble charging your devices or your headphones don't work quite right, it might be an issue with junk accumulating in the 30-pin/Lightning port or the headphone jack. Kelly has some tips on how to de-gunk those ports.
