Until it was faster than we expected: Apple just released the iOS 8.0.1 for all compatible iPad and iPhones / iPod touch users. It arrives with build 12A402, while iOS 8.0 was 12A365.
This version contains improvements and bug fixes, such as:
- Thanks to an error, HealthKit apps can now be made available on the App Store.
- Fixed an issue that could cause third-party keyboards to be unchecked when a user types their password.
- Fixed an issue that prevented some applications from accessing photos in the Photo Library.
- Improved reliability of the Achievability feature on iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus.
- Fixed an issue that could cause unexpected use of cellular data when receiving SMS / MMS messages.
- Better support of the option “Ask to buy” in Family Sharing for Purchases within apps.
- Fixed an issue that sometimes caused ringtones to not be restored from iCloud backups.
- Fixed an error that prevented photos and videos from being loaded from Safari.

A few minutes after the update was released, there are reports of users who have lost cellular connectivity and / or are having problems with Touch ID. We suggest that you wait a while before updating your iGadgets.
Update II · 09/24/2014 s 14:43
Apparently, the reported problems affect only owners of iPhones 6 and 6 Plus.
Update III · 09/24/2014 s 15:20
It took a while, but Apple has already taken iOS 8.0.1 down. Maybe we have an 8.0.2 coming out today?
Update IV, by Eduardo Marques · 09/24/2014 s 17:24
If you installed iOS 8.0.1 and are experiencing the problems described above like me, know that there is a solution. Follow the step-by-step below:
- Disable the Find iPhone feature on ICloud Settings Search iPhone (I need to enter your Apple ID password).
- Download version 8.0 of iOS (the links you find in this post).
- Open iTunes and make sure you are using iTunes 11.4 on your Mac / PC (iTunes About iTunes); otherwise, download the latest version.
- Connect your iPhone to your Mac / PC with the Lightning cable.
- In the "Summary" screen, hold the key Option and click on the “Search for Update” button. A window will open and in it you must select the version 8.0 of iOS that you just downloaded.
- Wait for iTunes to finish the installation.
Okay, your iPhone is back to being a phone!
Let's hope that Apple resolves this soon and releases a new version of iOS as soon as possible.
Update V · 09/25/2014 s 09:52
In a new support document, Apple confirmed the problem, instructed users to reinstall iOS 8.0 (as we did above) and said that iOS 8.0.2 will be released as soon as possible "in the next few days".
In my simple opinion, it would have made even more sense for her to release an iOS 8.0.2 s to bring the iPhones 6 back to its former state (with 8.0) and then, calmly, make available an 8.0.3 version bringing everything 8.0.1 promised (no problem). Anyway
