Apple today released iOS 8.0.2 which I supposed to fix issues caused in the highly criticized 8.0.1 update – which Apple eventually pulled.
According to the update data the release contains improvements and bug fixes which include the following:
- Fixes an issue in iOS 8.0.1 that impacted cellular network connectivity and Touch ID on iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus
- Fixes a bug so HealthKit apps can now be made available on the App Store
- Addresses an issue where 3rd party keyboards could become deselected when a user enters their passcode
- Fixes an issue that prevented some apps from accessing photos from the Photo Library
- Improves the reliability of the Reachability feature on iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus
- Fixes an issue that could cause unexpected cellular data usage when receiving SMS/MMS messages
- Better support of Ask To Buy for Family Sharing for In-App Purchases
- Fixes an issue where ringtones were sometimes not restored from iCloud backups
- Fixes a bug that prevented uploading photos and videos from Safari
It will be interesting to see if Apple finally got this update right or not. We should be hearing more about it as users download and install it.
I haven’t installed it yet on my iPad Mini with Retina, I am going to hold out a bit and see what happens. If you install it on your iOS device, let us know how it goes and leave a comment below.
Now, if there were only an update the company could release to fix the bending phones issue…
