Apple To Fix iPhone 6 Issues With iOS 8.0.2

Apple has said to roll out a new iOS 8 update in the “next few days” that will fix the issues plaguing iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus users who updated to iOS 8.0.1. Users are being advised to downgrade to the iOS 8.0.  When Apple rolled out iOS 8.0.1 yesterday, it was supposed to fix problems with HealthKit, iCloud Library, and improve the reliability of reachability amongst other things. But for those with an iPhone 6 or 6 Plus, it wasn’t what it was meant to be. Not only did the update disable Touch ID, but it also completely prevents the devices from making a cellular connection, so users who installed it are unable to make calls or send text messages. Apple quickly halted its rollout, but not before many had a chance to install the update. The company has now promised that it will release iOS 8.0.2 in the “next few days” to fix this problem, and bring back the patches that were supposed to come in iOS 8.0.1. It has also published instructions on how to downgrade to iOS 8 for users who wish to make calls and use their handsets like a regular phone in the meantime.
