iOS 8 may be the next big thing in the world of Apple’s mobile software, but it was not without it’s problems. Complaints that it was draining the battery incredibly fast and slowing down the wi-fi speed were common. iOS 8.0.1 was intended to fix bugs in the initial software, but it seems the problems it causes outweigh the benefits.
A number of people have complained that upgrading to iOS 8.0.1 has actually caused their iPhone to stop receiving network service, and is preventing the TouchID system from working. Apple has since withdrawn the patch and has recommended people revert back to the vanilla version of iOS 8.
An Apple spokesperson said:
“We have received reports of an issue with the iOS 8.0.1 update. We are actively investigating these reports and will provide information as quickly as we can. In the meantime we have pulled back the iOS 8.0.1 update.”
In the mean time those of you who have already upgraded to iOS 8.0.1 are being encouraged to back up your data and restore the phone to an earlier version of iOS in iTunes.
