iOS 8.0.1 reportedly seeded to carriers; here's the change log
posted by Michael H. / Sep 23, 2014, 1:04 PM
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 have a lot of issues with iOS 8. None of which would be fixed by 8.0.1.

No problem in my iPhone 5 installing iOS 8.

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'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.

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.

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
