It’s time to update your iPhone, iPads and iPods to iOS 8.0.2. Apple just released an iOS 8.0.2 update to the public with fixes for yesterday’s iOS 8.0.1 bugs and the bugs that iOS 8.0.1 was supposed to fix.
The iOS 8.0.1 update that was released yesterday caused some major issues on the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. Users lost cell reception with No Service being shown and TouchID stopped working. Of course, we did post a quick fix for this, but if you were waiting for Apple to release an update, then this is it. In a statement to CNBCTech, Apple said that around 40,000 iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus’ were affected by yesterday’s iOS 8.0.1 release.
