Apple said to be prepping iOS 8.0.1 to fix initial bugs

September 23, 2014

The first update for iOS 8 could soon arrive for iPhone/iPod touch and iPad users. Apple’s iOS 8.0.1 is expected to feature bug fixes only, according to MacRumors.

According to sources, the new update will address:

  • 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 

What iOS 8.0.1 won’t include is HealthKit and HomeKit support. Those features, first announced by Apple in June, aren’t expected to arrive until a separate update is released next month.

Apple released iOS 8 on Wednesday, Sept. 17. It is the same version released to developers as iOS 8 GM eight days earlier.
