Apple quickly issues iOS 8.0.2 update

Fixes issues that surfaced with quickly withdrawn 8.0.1 update and includes fixes and imporvements in that update

Apple has issued the iOS 8.0.2 update, which follows quickly on the heels of the flawed-and-quickly-pulled 8.0.1 update that disabled Touch ID and cellular capabilities on the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. This latest update not only addresses these issues but reinstates the improvements and fixes initially found in iOS 8.0.1. They include:

  • Addresses an issue where third-party keyboards could become deselected when a user enters their passcode.
  • Fixes an issue that prevented some apps from accessing photos from the Photo Library.
  • Improves the reliability of the Reachability feature on iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus.
  • Fixes an issue that could cause unexpected cellular data usage when receiving SMS/MMS messages.
  • Better support of Ask to Buy for Family Sharing for in-app purchases.
  • Fixes an issue where ringtones were sometimes not restored from iCloud backups.
  • Fixes a bug that prevented uploading photos and videos from Safari.

To install the update go to Settings & General & Software Update.
