    They pulled the update through iTunes sync as well.

    My iPhone 6 is also devoid of carrier signal and Touch ID.

     

    Interestingly - there is no longer a "Carrier" option in "Settings"

     

    And it also wiped the name of my iPhone in "General" -> "About" -> Name

     

    Doing a Network Setting reset doesn't do anything to help.

     

    We also have an iPhone 5c and an iPhone 5 in the house - all upgraded at the same time to iOS 8.0.1 (I'm keen - usually!) - all on the same carrier as the 6. They are both working fine. Neither is showing any of the symptoms above.

     

    I would not like to be the person who pushed the button to release this stinker of a patch ... sheesh.

    11:25AM PST. iTunes telling me iOS8.0 is the current software. So perhaps they shut down 8.0.1.

    CEO is responsible for what employees do up to a point. This is a code push not some failed business strategy. Apple has never been particularly good at Software Services even under Steve Jobs.

    Why downgrade ? My iPhone 5S, 5, iPad 2, 3 and iPad mini works fine with IOS 8.0.1

    Just as reported, I updated my iPhone 6 and I have no cellular and touch id doesn't work.  Tried restoring via ITunes but can't get to next screen. This is terrible.  #cellghazi

    Whence the doubt? It is true.

    Scott Forestall ate the Maps blame.

    Who will take it for streaming failure, bendgate, healthkit bug, icloud photo kit pulled, bendgate, IOS8.0.1,etc? 

     

    For whoever said it earlier, Apple does seem to have lost focus. Bugs is the new Apple.

    The issue can easily be resolved by re-updating the affected phone with the complete image, not an over-the air update. 

     

    You can just re-apply the update using iTunes.

    Download the firmware:

    6+ http://appldnld.apple.com/iOS8/031-07519.20140924.FTHpb/iPhone7,1_8.0.1_12A402_Restore.ipsw

    6 http://appldnld.apple.com/iOS8/031-07540.20140924.b41vK/iPhone7,2_8.0.1_12A402_Restore.ipsw

     

    Then connect your phone to iTunes, Command-click the update button (not sure what key on windows) and choose the downloaded file.

    By the way, it's easy to tell the legitimate posters in this thread from the couple of easy to spot trolls, who gleefully pile on whenever there is something negative about Apple.

     

    Those Fandroid imposters can kiss my ass.

    Thank god they pulled the update. Hopefully it hasn't impacted too many people. I never got a notification on my iPhone or iPad. I only updated my iPad because I saw the update was available via AI. So maybe if people didn't receive a pop up notification most of them didn't install.

    If no, then why the hell not?

     

    Nobody should be allowed to go home from Apple HQ until this is fixed, and they should push out a new update as soon as possible, within a few hours.


     

    I have to say I don't always agree with your viewpoints on personal responsibility, but hell if if you aren't consistent.

    None of the issues duplicated on my iPhone 5s and iPad mini!

    Again it is good to have patients, and not be one of those people who must have it now. I hope some of you learned not to push the update but when it shows up immediately.
