Apple released iOS 8.0.1 to fix issues inside of iOS 8, which launched last week and is pre-installed on the iPhone 6 and the iPhone 6 Plus out of the box. Unfortunately, iOS 8.0.1 made matters worse than before.
We immediately confirmed that Touch ID was broken on our units and users around the Web flocked to Twitter to note that iOS 8.0.1 also broke cellular connectivity on phones. Apple has since pulled the iOS 8.0.1 update and says that it’s looking into the issues that were reported. “We are actively investigating these reports … In the meantime we have pulled back the iOS 8.0.1 update,” Apple said, according to a tweet made by Re/Code‘s John Paczowski.
The issues probably should have been recognized by Apple before the update was made public and, unfortunately, folks with iOS 8.0.1 already installed need to revert to iOS 8 to fix things. Hopefully a new and fully polished update launches soon.
