iOS 8 Woes Confirmed by Apple
Apple’s iOS woes continue in a very real public way.
Apple today has recommended to users of its new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus smartphones to reinstall iOS 8 after an update this Wednesday led to complaints of lost cellular service (which is critical in a phone by the way) and functionality on the Touch ID fingerprint identity sensor.
Apple went as far as providing instructions to affected users on its support site for reinstalling iOS 8.0 through iTunes.
Apple reported that they are preparing a new software update, iOS 8.0.2, with a fix for the issue.
The iOS 8.0.2 update will release “as soon as it’s ready in the next few days” Apple said, without giving a specific date.
Earlier on Wednesday there were reports that Apple had withdrawn the iOS 8.0.1 update it rolled out earlier, after complaints from users. That update was meant to fix a number of bugs in iOS 8, which was rolled out last week.
Apple is also facing criticism from some users that the aluminium case of the larger iPhone 6 Plus, with a 5.5-inch display, bends under pressure. Stay tuned on this one.
