When launching its new flagship iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus smartphones, Apple also launched its latest iOS 8 operating system to the general public. Although it has managed to receive good reviews over the new features and improvements over previous update, the iOS 8.0.1 update ruined the success-week of the company. After receiving many complaints on issues created by iOS update, Apple managed to roll out one more update in the form of iOS 8.0.2 to resolve many issues such as HealthKit and WiFi calling. However, the problems seem to be still affecting the software, as some users reported bugs in the latest iOS 8.0.2 update.
The complaints began to reach social media, forums and even in Apple’s support forum quickly after the launch of iOS 8 by the company, that includes various issues faced by the device owners. Later, the release of iOS 8.0.1 update made things even worse (Apple pulled the update immediately). Now, when it looks like the situation is under control, users who updated the device to iOS 8.0.2 began to complain about various glitches following the update.
Users’ posts in Apple’s support communities forum reveal many threads on various new issues faced by the device owners. Few users complained about losing connectivity with phone calls and text messages, a few hours after updating the software to iOS 8.0.2. One of the user posted “After updating to iOS 8.0.2, I have problems with my cellular reception on iPhone 5s and no service appears every few minutes…”
Few users posted about poor WiFi connectivity on iPhone 6 Plus and iPad Air, where those devices’ internet speed slows down and sometimes it becomes “zero.” They have also pointed that the rebooting of these devices solves the issue temporarily. Many users posted related to the slow WiFi connectivity on their iPhone 5s following the iOS 8.0.2 update.
Apart from WiFi and cellular connectivity issues, few threads reveals a problem in Safari browser, random crashes and Bluetooth connectivity as well. Apple hasn’t released any statements regarding these issues so far. It’s virtually inevitable that the update causes some glitches, as millions of Apple iPhones and iPads are receiving the iOS 8.0.2 update right now, since 2 days. We can’t judge the strength and stability of the latest update on these threads, as those could be isolated incidents, and maybe, widespread.
