Apple Releases iOS 8.0.1…. Then Pulls It Because Of Major Issues [UPDATED x2]

For those of you waiting for fixes to whatever iOS 8 issues that you’re having, such as my WiFi issue that I’ve found a workaround for, you might have to wait a little bit longer. Apple released iOS 8.0.1 today, but quickly pulled it after complaints of the update causing cellular service to be disabled and there are also reports of problems with Touch ID. Both issues seem to be centered on iPhone 6 and 6 Plus models.

I for one upgraded to 8.0.1 on my iPhone 5s before it  was pulled and my experience was as follows:

  • It was a tiny update that required 1.5 GB of space to install
  • After installing, I noted that it gave me back 0.3 GB extra space. I’m guessing it cleaned something up from the iOS 8 install.
  • WiFi at the moment seems to be more stable. I’ll have further feedback later.

Since this is a developing story, I’ll be updating this as I get more information.

UPDATE: iPhone In Canada has posted a how to guide to restore iOS 8 to fix connectivity and Touch ID problems,

UPDATE #2: The WiFi bug is still present.
