Apple released a workaround for iPhone 6 and 6 Plus owners who lost cellular connectivity or Touch ID functionality due to the 8.0.1 update.
The company posted instructions on how those affected can revert their devices back to iOS 8 and said that 8.0.2 will be released in the “next few days.”
Apple released and then quickly pulled back 8.0.1 after several users complained of losing cell service and not being able to use the Touch ID fingerprint sensor.
The software technical difficulties arose as several iPhone 6 Plus owners have been posting photos of slight bends in their devices, with some claiming the bend resulted from carrying the 5.5-inch display iPhone in the front pocket of their pants.
Often dubbed “Bendgate,” the malleable aluminum-body phablet outbreak along with iOS 8 woes have many in the media saying Apple’s biggest iPhone launch to date has been marred.
Apple released both the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus on Sept. 19 and said it sold more than 10 million devices over the first weekend. Current orders for the sold-out devices are due to ship as late as October for the iPhone 6 and November for the iPhone 6 Plus.
