Apple has now pulled its iOS 8.0.1 software update from circulation, after a ton of reports hit the Internet that said the first update to iOS 8 crippled Touch ID and cellular service on the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus.
While the iOS 8.0.1 update was supposed to fix a number of bugs that had been discovered in iOS 8 since it launched a week ago, the code apparently is causing more problems than it solved for all those new iPhone 6 owners. Other iOS devices such as the iPad and older iPhone do not seem to be affected.
If your iPhone 6 device still shows that it is available for download, it is highly recommended that you do not download the software. If you have already downloaded and installed iOS 8.0.1, we have a way to restore your device to iOS 8.
