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.
