iOS 8.0.1 will reportedly bring fixes for phone & keyboard bugs, Safari video, & more
Apple’s next iOS 8 update following the public release of the operating system earlier this month will reportedly bring various fixes for phone and keyboard related bugs, problems with video in Safari and more. MacRumors claims to have details on the upcoming iOS 8.0.1 release from a source. In addition to fixing bugs with the phone, keyboard, and Safari, the fix will reportedly also include a fix for AirDrop support with Passbook and a problem with installing VPN profiles.
Here’s the full list of changes according to the report:
– Phone: Addresses bugs with call forwarding and freezing when accessing visual voicemail – Keyboard: Fixes an issue with keypad not appearing to enter iCloud Keychain verification codes – Safari: Fixes a problem with videos occasionally not playing – Sharing: Fixes AirDrop support for Passbook passes – VPN: Addresses an issue with installing VPN profiles
Apple released iOS 8 to the public earlier this month on September 17th two days ahead of its new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus models going on sale in initial launch countries. Adoption of the new operating system is lagging behind last year’s iOS 7 release, while Apple for the first time used its own CDN to deliver the update this year. A release date for the next iOS 8 update has not yet been confirmed, but Apple has said they are working on a fix for the HealthKit bug that delayed the feature expected later this month.
