A little while back we share with you the news about Apple’s new iOS 8 launch and today we’re happy to announce that Apple has released iOS 8.0.2 update, after the first update, the iOS 8.0.1 was faulty. It didn’t allow many of the users to make or receive calls and it even locked users out of their phones by disabling TouchID Fingerprint sensor.
Today, Apple has managed to soothe the aching hears of many who were experiencing problems with their phones due to the iOS update that Apple released at the beginning of the week. The previous update, the iOS 8.0.1, turned many of the new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus smartphones into bricks.
After an intense session of software engineering, Apple released iOS 8.0.2, which is safe and working as it should:
iOS 8.0.2 is now available for users, it fixes an issue that affected iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus users who downloaded iOS 8.0.1, and includes improvements and bug fixes originally in iOS 8.0.1. We apologize for inconveniencing the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus users who were impacted by the bug in iOS 8.0.1.
If you’re curious to know how many iPhones were affected by the faulty software update, you should know that the California-based company places the number at around 40,000 devices. The update was only available for a few hours, which is why only 40,000 people managed to snap it. Apple withdrew it in a matter of hours after releasing it, after the problems were reported.
iTunes doesn’t usually let you downgrade your operating system, but Apple created an workaround to allow people to downgrade to iOS 8, so that their phones could work.
