iOS update on Iphone 6 makes it useless!

Postby viking60 » 25 Sep 2014, 15:24

If you have been sleeping around in the streets to get the new iPhone6 then you have reason to be annoyed by the iOS update that Apple has released.

It will turn your new iPhone into a lump of plastic and metal. The update to iOS 8.01 simply made it impossible to make a call!
The touch ID login does not work either.
That is rather bad for a phone - especially a smart one...

The fix is to downgrade the update to iOS 8 via iTunes. If you have avoided this upgrade then :S do not upgrade to iOS 8.01
Apple is sorry for the inconvenience:
We apologise for the great inconvenience experienced by users, and are working around the clock to prepare iOS 8.0.2 with a fix for the issue, and will release it as soon as it is ready in the next few days

Maybe the time has come to take Co-Founder Steve Wozniak's advice?

They seriously don't test OS upgrades? Ridiculous.
My HP Veer seems unaffected. :-)
