New iOS 8 update launching in ‘next few days’



Apple announced to launch a new update for the iOS 8 operating system after a last download caused some users to lose cellular service and access to Touch ID.

According to the support page on Apple’s website, the company says it is working on iOS 8.0.2, which will fix the issues and address a series of bugs with SMS messages, media uploads in Safari and ringtones stored as iCloud backups.

By the source of Apple the update will be available “in the next few days”.

Moreover, Apple has set up instructions for users on how to uninstall iOS 8.0.1, launched yesterday then quickly removed after users complained of no cell service and a disable Touch ID feature. The fix requires users to plug their device into their Mac or PC and use iTunes to complete.

The update is part of a series of glitches exposed by users since the launch of the iPhones and iPhone 6 Plus last Friday. Most notable is a reported hardware problem where the smartphone can easily bend when in a user’s pocket.
