Apple fixes software bug in iPhone 6
NEW YORK — Apple has released a revised version of its new iOS operating system to fix the bugs that have been plaguing some iPhone 6 users.
iOS 8.0.2 came two days after Apple withdrew a software update following widely reported issues that left some unable to use their phone.
After the first update, the phones were unable to connect to cellular networks and the fingerprint reader, a security feature, did not work.
“We apologize for inconveniencing the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus users who were impacted by the bug in iOS 8.0.1,” Apple said in a statement.
The iOS 8 operating system was released just last week, days ahead of the release of the iPhone 6.
Apple has sold 10 million of the new smartphones that were released last Friday. In addition to the software problem, there have been reports of bent phones.
