iOS 8.0.2 released to fix TouchID, cell network woes on newest iPhones

Apple logoOn Thursday evening, Apple gave its first major iOS 8 update another shot—only this time without the major bugs in yesterday's attempt. Upon installation, iOS 8.0.1 left many iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus users with non-functioning cellular service and TouchID buttons. Apple told CNBC that 40,000 people were affected by the problems, and the update was quickly pulled.

iOS 8.0.2 is now available for all compatible iDevices, and its patch notes look remarkably like those from 8.0.1, with one major update: "Fixes an issue in iOS 8.0.1 that impacted cellular network connectivity and Touch ID on iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus." Otherwise, the good stuff we'd hoped for yesterday, including HealthKit fixes, a third-party keyboard update, and photo-library access for third-party apps, is now ready to rock on your favorite, compatible iDevice.

iOS 8.0.2

Our own Andrew Cunningham reported a smooth update on his latest iPhones; that, plus positive chatter on Twitter feeds, has us convinced that this should be a safer update to accept.
