ios 802iOS 8.0.1 was released a couple of days ago but unfortunately due to a series of pretty severe bugs, Apple has withdrawn the update and promised that iOS 8.0.2 was on its way. Well the good news is that it looks like Apple has worked pretty swiftly because iOS 8.0.2 has since been released.


The update was originally promised to arrive in the next few days, but we guess it took Apple less time than expected to get it fixed and pushed out to users ASAP. For those who are wondering what the big deal is, iOS 8.0.1 basically rendered the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus useless in terms of making calls. It also caused Touch ID to stop working.

With iOS 8.0.2, Apple has addressed those issues as well as included the bug fixes and improvements that were originally meant for iOS 8.0.1. This includes a fix to the HealthKit framework that will now allow apps to work with it. Prior to this, there was a bug with HealthKit that prevented its compatible apps from being released.

According to a tweet by CNBC, they claim that Apple has told them that less than 40,000 iPhone 6 and 6 Plus owners have been affected by the iOS 8.0.1 update. Considering that Apple has managed to sell over 10 million units, it does seem pretty small, although 40,000 inconvenienced iPhone users is nothing to laugh at.
