iOS 8 bug deletes iWork docs

Gregg Keizer | Oct. 1, 2014
After iPhone, iPad owners reset their devices, iCloud Drive documents disappear.

Two weeks ago, several iOS app developers warned users of iOS 8 to hold off transitioning from iCloud to iCloud Drive until they upgrade their Macs to Yosemite.

Although the Reset All Settings bug seems similar to normal iCloud-to-iCloud Drive migration issues -- Computerworld found that it took hours for the transition and synchronization to complete when a staffer upgraded to Yosemite's public beta -- the multi-day disappearance of iWork documents hints at a more serious problem.

Apple did not reply to questions, including whether the files could be recovered by the company.
