APPLE HAS TOLD iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus users that downloaded the iOS 8.0.1 update and found that it somewhat ruined their days to roll back the update.
Apple released iOS 8.0.1 to iPhones on Wednesday, but all didn't go to plan. While speculation had suggested that the update would arrive with a slew of bug fixes, the update appears to have created more issues.
Apple has accepted that some iPhone users have experienced loss of connectivity and breakage in Touch ID sign-in.
"We have a workaround for you if you have an iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus and you lost cellular service and Touch ID functionality today after updating to iOS 8.0.1," it said.
The workaround is a simple one, and Apple offers a guide to it. That guide walks users through the reinstallation of iOS 8, which if you remember you were using a couple of days ago before the bug fixing iOS 8.0.1 came out.
No one likes a retrograde step, except perhaps the media cartels, and Apple has told its users that an actual proper fix is coming soon.
"We are also preparing iOS 8.0.2 with a fix for the issue, and will release it as soon as it's ready in the next few days," it added.
The issue will only impact people who bought the new Apple hardware when it came out and installed the update almost as soon as it was available. However, we assume that is a lot of people.
Earlier this week Apple said that it had sold 10 million iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus handsets in its first weekend of sale, which was a record number.
Also this week we learned that the UK beard and beanbag brigade has deemed Apple the country's coolest brand. µ
