Don't save the full path, but just the directory and file name to the images. Since this behavior is new in iOS 8 and can also happen on a real device.


save your file path like as follows :

NSArray *paths = NSSearchPathForDirectoriesInDomains(NSDocumentDirectory, NSUserDomainMask, YES); NSString *documentsDirectory = [paths objectAtIndex:0]; NSString *localFilePath = [documentsDirectory stringByAppendingPathComponent:[[yourArray objectAtIndex:indexPath.section]lastPathComponent]];


i think you have this link in your code NSDocumentationDirectory change it into NSDocumentDirectory

NSSearchPathForDirectoriesInDomains(NSDocumentDirectory, NSUserDomainMask, YES);
