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.
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.

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?

1000s? Try multiplying that by many many more.
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
