UPDATE (25 September): Apple have now banished this update, and released iOS 8.0.2 which replaces this firmware revision.
Apple today released iOS 8.0.1, which was quickly pulled shortly after due to user complaints rnging from No Service issues, to Touch ID not functioning. The purpose of the iOS 8.0.1 was ironically to fix a few bugs from the iOS 8.0 update, however it seems like it introduced some new ones. And they’re not small bugs either.
If you would like to downgrade back to iOS 8.0, then you can follow our guide on how to install a firmware update file in iTunes, using the stock iOS 8.0 firmware file.
For those whose devices already downloaded the iOS 8.0.1 update OTA, but have not yet installed it – DO NOT install it! In fact, we are going to show you how to delete the downloaded update to prevent your device from installing it and experiencing the issues reported by many in iOS 8.0.1.
To delete the OTA update you can do so from the “Manage Storage” section of your device.
1) Go to Settings > General > Usage > Manage Storage.
2) Select “iOS 8.0.1.” in the list
3) Select “Delete Update“, and then select “Delete Update” once again to confirm.
This will remove the update file from your device and prevent you from updating to it unintentionally and experience issues that many others have reported.
We will update you as soon as a more stable iOS 8.0.1 has been released.Share This:
