The past few days must have been hell for some Apple iOS Engineers, the company has new released iOS 8.0.2, a new OS update that promises to fix some issues introduced in iOS 8.0 — especially the deserter iOS 8.0.1 left behind. This update went out earlier this week, and was rapidly jerked by the company after iPhone 6 owners reported that their phones had no cellular connection, and that their Touch ID buttons no longer scanned for fingerprints.
It has been reported that less than 40,000 people downloaded the iOS 8.0.1 update and it was available for under an hour before Apple pulled it.
The new update reportedly sorts out all those issues plus other fixes for a bug that kept Apple from releasing any HealthKit-compatible apps in the App Store, as well as one that promises to make the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus’ reachability feature more reliable. See the full list includes many others:
