iOS 8.0.1 reportedly seeded to carriers; here's the change log

iOS 8.0.1 reportedly seeded to carriers; here's the change log
iOS 8 has been in wide release for just under one week, which means it is time to start looking ahead to Apple's first bug fix update for the software. And, as usual, the first update will be aiming at smaller troubles rather than trying to fix the larger issues that have been found in the new iOS. We've heard about Wi-Fi issues with iOS 8, and there is also the new study claiming that iOS 8 is less stable than iOS 7 (which would in turn make it far more likely to crash than Android).

However, as is the way Apple works, we should probably expect fixes for those issues with iOS 8.1 and with subsequent updates to the various third-party apps that are likely part of iOS 8's crash problems. Right now, we're taking a look at iOS 8.0.1, and the change log there shows the following fixes: 

  • Phone: Addresses bugs with call forwarding and freezing when accessing visual voicemail
  • Keyboard: Fixes an issue with keypad not appearing to enter iCloud Keychain verification codes
  • Safari: Fixes a problem with videos occasionally not playing
  • Sharing: Fixes AirDrop support for Passbook passes
  • VPN: Addresses an issue with installing VPN profiles

Reports are saying that iOS 8.0.1 has already been seeded to carriers for testing and approval, but there is no word on when the software will be released to users. We'll keep an eye out and let you know when the update begins rolling out.

I installed iOS 8 on the day it came out. It made my internet on iPhone slow since. I got on Google and figured out that many people have the same issue. I downgraded to iOS 7 yesterday and everything is good now. Honestly, there isn't anything cool about iOS 8. Most of their "new" features have already been on Android for many years. So much innovation, Apple... Disappointment.

Why does it matter if they've been on Android when you're using an iOS device?

I'm just trying to make a point that Apple isn't as innovative as Android anymore. I don't have anything against Apple or Android devices. I'm just disappointed.

my main issue is the Bluetooth seems to cut in and out particularly in the car and if you google it a lot of people are having this issue with varying levels of seriousness.

iOS 8 is about 99% stable for me, first gen software is a little buggy.

I've had zero issues with my Plus. So far. On the other hand, with my Note 3, I had my ebay app stop working and the only way I could get it to reinstall was to reset the phone to factory. Unrooted and 100% stock. People can say what they want about iOS and iPhones, I've never had many problems with them. The only reason I switched in the first place was lack of screen size with iPhone. I think I can give a good review on both systems. Been with Android 2 years (Galaxy s2 & 3 Note 2 & 3). Got kind of old having to go in and alway clear the RAM every couple of hours trying to keep battery life up. The only way to get it down was to restart the phone once a day. Not that the iPhone is flawless, but Android users that bash, can't honestly say their OS is 100% clean and without flaws. Get's old.

I don't have any major issues EXCEPT... That they replaced my Camera Roll album with a Recently Added album. If I want to see an old picture I took I have to use Yearly/Collections/Moment views to find my photos. They're not all grouped together, they're separated all over the place.

I definitely liked the way it worked before. Not sure why they decided to change it.

My only real complaint is the 3rd party keyboard bugs. iOS doesn't seem to like them and they're very buggy and crash a lot. Swype already had an update and it's getting better, so hopefully this improves quickly. It was a major selling point for iOS 8, so I'm surprised that it's this half baked out of the gate.

Which seems to be more a problem with the keyboards themselves. They can run fine in the lab, then it gets released to millions of users and you start seeing issues pop up here and there.

Meh, having little bugs here & there, nothing greatly problematic (iPhone 5). Sometimes I'll jump out of an app & back to the home screen when I open it. I'll press the home button & it'll bring up the multi-task screen (to close out apps & such), and sometimes the screen will get stuck. Like I said, nothing problematic.

This happens with every major iOS release. I'm having trouble pressing the slider while watching videos on my iPad air. It can be on YouTube ot the safari video player. It's annoying the hell out of me. Now I see why a lot of people don't download new software right away. These random issues can ruin an otherwise great experience. I know usually the newer phones work a little better with the newest software since they come with it out of the box. Since I'm a new apple product junkie in addition to the iPhone 6+ I'll just trade my iPad Air in once the newer one is released. I don't care what any company says they don't make these devices with longevity past a year in mind. They can release the new software but it won't run exactly the same after that it's not even just Apple all the companies do that so you can get their newest device. Which most of us do anyway but the wait for the new device sucks

I don't have any issues with iOS 8. I'm actually happy to see one thing I missed in ios6 - full photo of caller instead of a circle photo next to the number.

ios 8 got quite a major issues..... unlike before, app developers had a challange infront of them to fix there apps for different screen sizes for ios8.... that is why many of the apps are not updated to for ios8 and crashing...... coming to connectivity, it has majorly effected wifi, painfully slow wifi connection no matter what..... that should be adressed and fixed soon..... app develovpers to have to put some effort for old iphones along with new ones..........

i experienced the keyboard and safari issues. sometimes when using Swype keyboard keys don't immediately respond, it takes turning the default and back.
