    I'm really glad I was in class when this fiasco started. This is pretty embarrassing for Apple.

    It better be out today because clearly 1000s of people got affected.

    Apple don't use letters in their OS version numbers. The next one will likely be 8.0.2.

    Apple will just re-release iOS 8.0.1 fixing the cellular and Touch ID issues. I very much doubt it will be 8.0.2.

    But 8.0.1 already exists as a stable version.

    When Apple released iOS 4.2 GM, it was found to have a major WiFi bug on the iPad and they released a new GM as 4.2.1.

    Isn't the issue just simply something about the OTA delivery?

    Theoretically, why would/should we expect that Apple's next update will be anything other than a re-christened 8.0.1?

    I don't see anything that would mandate anything else otherwise.

    Articles that say not to install 8.0.1 and other confusion.

    If they raise the build number, they'll raise the version number. Only exception would be during a beta period.

    There are now major publications out there with articles saying not to upgrade to 8.0.1. There is zero chance Apple will re-lease it with that number now.

    What are they supposed to do, email everyone telling them that the first 8.0.1 was bad but that this 8.0.1 is good now?

    so basically sounds like we are getting iOS 8.0.2 today, tomorrow or next week with the fixes from what we saw listed for 8.0.1?

    I hope they release it today, disabling cellular features is a big issue.

    that makes more sense to release it is as 8.0.2 then.

    still question when this will be out because whatever was broken they need to fix and it can take some time to make sure this doesnt happen again...

    I don't know. It only affected new iPhones and the update was pulled in just over an hour, who else updates their phone within an hour of its release? Nerds like myself.

    I guessing less than 100,000 people were affected.

    In the meantime, download the iOS 8.0 IPSW for your phone, option+click (or shift+click in Windows) on "Check for Updates" in iTunes, select the iOS 8 IPSW and let it do an 'upgrade' to iOS 8. It'll roll you back and you won't even have to restore from backup.

    I am just curious what Apple plans to do for those who are not tech savy enough to know how to do the ipsw.

    In my opinion they need to release a new version that the bricked iPhone can update to.

    I wonder if we called apple, if we would be able to get a free case from this? Then again I can't call anyone anymore ahaha
