    Hi folks

    I'm using a iOS 8, iPhone 5, 16 GB

    My internet wifi is on through out this process (and I am posting this using the same net)

    1. I get a notification on "settings" - home page, iPhone

    2. I open "settings" and see there is a software update pending

    3. Inside "software update" I see there is iOS 8.0.1 patch downloaded and waiting to be installed. I press "Install now"

    4.1. I am directed to the Terms and conditions, I agree, agree ! and then
    4.2. the install "verification" starts

    5. Soon the phone says "iOS 8.0.1 failed verification because you are no longer connected to the internet" : but I AM connected !!

    6. What should I do

    I've enclosed screen shots showing 1 -> 5

    That means you are connected to WiFi, not necessarily the internet. Check your router, make sure IT has an internet connection.

    NO NO NO NO! Apple has UNSIGNED Version 8.0.1 as it is EVIL and that is why it has failed verification APPLE is trying to save you! You need to download and install 8.0.2!

    Good Luck!!!!

    8.0.1 has been pulled - deleted it and download 8.0.2

    Step 1: Go to Settings > General > Usage > Manage Storage.

    Step 2: Select iOS 8.0.1. Note: As it measures over 1GB in size, it should appear at the top of your list.

    Step 3: Tap Delete Update, and tap Delete Update again to confirm.

    Edit- damn I can't type fast enough on the iPad lol

    Apple pulled 8.0.1 due to major bugs. I don't think they are signing it which means you cannot install that version.

    Go into settings>general>usage>manage storage. Scroll through the list of apps and find the iOS update. Delete it. Go back to software update and try again, it should find and download 8.0.2.

    If you do not have an iOS update in the list to delete, then connect to iTunes and update that way.

    I experienced that when I was updating to 8.0.2. I hit retry over and over again until it started installing :)
