Limits for Wiped iOS devices
While there is support for iOS 8, there are some things you should understand. There are two forms of updates for iOS. One completely wipes the memory, the other keeps the memory and only replaces iOS itself. Most devices will update without a complete wipe of the memory, and those devices present no special problems for data recovery. However, if a device was completely wiped, recovering data will be limited. For more details why, read our article on how recovery software works.
NOTE: As of the writing of this post, iOS 8.1 is the most recent update.
