Apple releases iOS 8.0.2.

Just hours after pulling iOS 8.01 and apologising for the havoc it wreaked, Apple has released its immediate follow-up, iOS 8.0.2.

The freshly baked software aims to fix any bugs in the new platform and hopefully put paid to the nasty issues which saw iPhone users lose cellular access.

This update will also fix problems which saw the device’s Touch ID fingerprint scanner stop working. There are also fixes for HealhKit apps and changes to allow third-party keyboards to work properly.

Apple says 40,000 devices were hit by issues with iOS 8.0.1. That’s a relatively small number considering 10 million new iPhones were sold over last weekend alone, but still enough to cause concern among web savvy users.

The company has already issued an apology about the software’s failings.

This comes at the same time as it is fighting accusations about a design weakness with the iPhone 6 Plus, after users found the device bent out of shape in their pockets.

Apple invited a small group of journalists into its testing labs to see how it made its own attempts to bend the handset out of shape.
