Apple issues iOS 8.0.2 with fixes for iOS 8.0.1 cellular and Touch ID bugs [u]

One day following the botched iOS 8.0.1 update release, Apple on Thursday issued iOS 8.0.2, essentially a fix for the prior fix targeting issues with the HealthKit framework for connected wellness apps and devices.




On Wednesday, Apple released iOS 8.0.1 to address problems with the iOS 8 rollout last week, but the software came with a bug that disabled cellular connectivity and Touch ID drivers for many iPhone 6 and 6 Plus users.

Less than an hour after launch, Apple was forced to pull the over-the-air update, later promising a patch would hit servers within "a few days." A Support Pages document also outlined a downgrade process to get iPhone 6 and 6 Plus users back to stock firmware.

As of this writing, iOS 8.0.2 is currently rolling out and has yet to reach all areas.

Update: According to CNBC, Apple said the iOS 8.0.1 bug affected less than 40,000 iPhone 6 handsets.

    I'll be a pig! I already have 8.0.1 installed on one of my iPads (no issues), and I just began downloading 8.02!

    This pretty much says it all in the first two comments. Not sure anything else can be added.

     

    Well done folks.

    A sensible position to take. Let devs test it first.

    Holy shit, that was fast. What happened to "a few days"?

    Apple really nipping everything in the bud today.

    I will install this update…after a few days have past.

    It would be foolish to trust Apple that this update is safe after 8.01 went apeshit.

    I hope so, because I loaded up a little bit today. It seemed like a good opportunity.

    And the download is already done for me. It was only 14.1 mb, since I already had 8.0.1 on one of the iPads.

     

    Of course, the real test is when people update their iPhones I suppose.

    Posters on MacRumors reporting that their cell service and Touch ID are working now.

    Indeed ... and they did good (in terms of cellular and TouchID, at least!) ...

    Updated on my Air and 6. TouchID still works, cellular works.

    The whole market took a dive today. AAPL would have been down regardless, just about everything was bloody red.
