iOS 8 Update Knocking Out Cell Service on iPhone 6 Models

Just a few short hours ago we posted an article about a variety of issues users are experiencing with their iPhone 6 models, and how many of them hope a future iOS 8 update will fix said issues. Well the first iOS 8 update is out and instead of fixing bugs, it’s rendering iPhones unusable.

This is something I saw people mentioning all over my Twitter feed and Darrell Etherington from Tech Crunch posted the news, citing himself as one of the unlucky victims. The update was meant to provide various improvements and bug fixes, but users who installed it over-the-air onto their iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus models had their Touch ID and cell service knocked out. There are reports that users who installed the update through iTunes via tether were not affected, nor were those who installed the new update on older iPhone models.

Apple is aware of the problem and have pulled back the iOS 8.0.1 update while they look into the issue. Hopefully they can get on top of this fast for the sake of those who no longer have functioning phones. I feel for the iPhone 6 early adopters. Between the issues posted this morning and now this, it’s been a bumpy start!
