A week after the launch of iOS 8, Apple has released the first update to the new OS – iOS 8.0.1. Available now through software update, iOS 8.0.1 fixes a number of bugs including an issue that prevented HealthKit apps from working correctly and a problem that caused custom keyboards to become deselected after entering a passcode.
iOS 8.0.1 also improves Reachability on the new iPhone 6, fixes a bug that disabled file uploads in Safari, and brings better support for the Ask to Buy feature in Family Sharing.
iOS 8.0.1 can be downloaded now from iTunes or software update on an iOS device.
Update: Following reports of iOS 8.0.1 causing issues with broken cellular connections and Touch ID on some iPhone models, Apple has pulled the update and instructed affected users to restore through iTunes.
