iOS 8 became available a week ago today, and it was immediately apparent that the update still required some polish due to some incompatibilities with some HealthKit apps and other 3rd party tie-in services that use iCloud Drive. It was left up to the users themselves to decide whether to upgrade or not.
According to MacRumors, iOS 8.0.1 was already being seeded to some carriers even before the media event officially announced launch dates for iOS 8, the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus. It has now come to light some of the fixes we can expect in 8.0.1.
- 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
Beyond what we already know from the above list, Apple will most likely address other bugs that users have been experiencing in the update as well. We probably won't have to wait too long either, seeing as it's already in the hands of partners and carriers for testing and approval.
