iOS 8.0.2 is now available for download to fix known bugs in iOS 8.0.1

For "early birds" who already have their iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus ahead of its official release here in the Philippines, they must have experienced loss of cellular service and the use of Touch ID in iOS 8.0.1. As an iPhone 5C user, i didn't experienced such bugs but there are two things that I noticed on iOS 8.0.1 in my phone: some apps crashing after launch and the weak data transfer rate  when connected to Wifi.

Today, Apple releases iOS 8.0.2 to fix those bugs. Aside from the bug fixes to iPhone 6 and 6Plus' cellular service and touch ID bugs, here is a list of bug fixes and improvements indicated in the software update:

  • 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

To download the update directly on your iOS device, go to Settings > General > Software Update. You can also update your iOS device via iTunes.
