iOS 8.0.1 Update

Warning: we are noticing that after installing iOS 8.0.1, our iPhones are showing ‘no service’ and Touch ID no longer works. We’ve confirmed this with several readers as well, so until we know more, we recommend holding off on the update. Video below.

Apple has released iOS 8.0.1 to the public this morning. The update comes exactly one week after the official iOS 8 release, and includes a myriad of bug fixes pertaining to third-party keyboards, the Reachability feature for newer iPhones, and uploading content in Safari.

Another notable item in the 8.0.1 change log is that the bug that prevented HealthKit-enabled apps from entering the App Store has been remedied. Apple says that it will now start approving HealthKit apps, meaning it shouldn’t be too long before they start popping up.

Here is your full 8.0.1 change log:

  • Fixes a bug so HealthKit apps can now be made available on the App Store
  • Addresses an issue where 3rd 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

With this update coming so soon after iOS 8, we imagine there will be few other changes. But we’re installing it now and will update this post if necessary. If you spot a change, let us us know by either emailing us at or leaving a comment below.

Update: if you have updated to iOS 8.0.1, let us know how it went down in the comments. What things are broken and which model iPhone do you have?

Update 2: Apple tells Recode’s John Packzkowski: “We are actively investigating these reports … In the meantime we have pulled back the iOS 8.0.1 update.”

    why people are being idiot and defending apple like hell? Its charging you fortune for its #bendgate fone and you people are happy with that. Stop seeing the positive aspect only. Its time apple really need to innovate things rather than building $200 phone and charge you $700+ .
