TheTame Apple Press praised Apple for releasing an “update” to the iOS 8 platform so early, but this was itself a cover to the fact that the iOS 8 was really broken, it was also packed with U2 which was too smug to be deleted.
However, the update itself was flawed within an hour-and-a-half of it going live, Apple is said to have pulled it. It turned out that the software geniuses at Apple created an update which inserted more problems.
How serious were the bugs, well Twitter is full of people who can’t get a signal following the update, with their iPhones stuck in searching for service mode, or getting the “No signal” message.
Others are seeing problems with the Touch ID fingerprint reader after applying the 8.0.1 update. The problem appears to be confined to the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus.
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.”
An unofficial fix for this problem involves rolling back to iOS 8.0. Our fix is to flog your iPhone on eBay before it is widely condemned as a lemon and buy a phone which does not bend for half the price and then take yourself on holiday somewhere nice with the left over money.
