iOS 8.0.2 Update Review
The somewhat troublesome iOS 8.0 operating system is one of the most interesting topics these days. From the get go, the new software version fails to provide steady WiFi and cellular data connectivity. There are also bugs that prevent the new HealthKit apps and Safari web browsers from working properly.
Apple pushed out the newer iOS 8.0.1 update within days, which is meant to fix the glitches. Unfortunately, the iOS 8.0.1 ended up making things much worse with the Touch ID and cellular radios inoperative. This forced Apples to quickly release a subsequent update, the iOS 8.0.2.
It would be interesting to know how the new iOS 8.0.2 affect users. In general, apps still look grainy and blown up on the bigger screen. Users also report that apps freeze occasionally on iOS 8.0.2. The new update doesn’t seem to affect the great battery life of iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. The most important thing is, the iOS 8.0.2 finally fixes the connectivity issue and it should work as expected. However, WiFi connection may not be as smooth and the local wireless network may lag occasionally when refreshing an app. Clearly, the iOS 8.0.2 doesn’t fix all the bugs; but at least it still makes the iPhone 6 more usable.
